Membership programs are
the best way to create residual income.
You know the kind of income that is coming in month after month for years to
come or at least as long as the referral remains a member of the service you
no difference in how you advertise for this programs compared to how you
advertise for one time sales like ebooks or software. There are membership
programs available for almost every thing you can imagine. It would take
weeks for you to sort through all the possibilities.
In my opinion
membership programs are the best
products to advertise for. Even if you only sell one membership per month.
Doesn't sound much, doesn't it? But it's probably more realistic than the
high flying promises of the membership program owners. Focus for just a
minute and follow my math.
1 membership sale per
month. Let's say your commission is $5, this is a realistic amount not a
fantasy commission nobody ever gets. After selling this program for 1 year
you have 12 paid memberships, which now totals $60 per month. Plus the
commission from all the other members as well. You will earn $390 in
your first year. Hmm, not quite enough to quit my job.
Let's continue. The
second year you already start with 12 members and $60. By the end of the
second year you have 24 members and $120 residual income per month, which is
$1110 per year. If you continue this for the period of 5 years your monthly
residual income will be $300.
Ok, still not exited.
I don't blame you. Here's what you can do. Run free classified ads and
slightly increase your sales rate to let's say 1 membership sales per week.
You just shortened to length of time to get $300 a month from 5 years to 1
year. Now let's further assume that you promote more than 1 program.
Promoting 5 membership programs at the same time is no big deal to do and it
will increase your monthly income from $300 to $1,500.
Of course these are
all just numbers and speculations. To make my point. Selling on the internet
is a numbers game. To make the numbers work you need to sell a lot and
often. Membership programs are a perfect product to get the most out of your
advertising efforts. Remember: The income potential is too low to run
massive paid advertising. Stick to free classified ads and use the method
"set and forget". The less attention you pay the more effective your
campaign will be.
