The Membership at ReallySimpleSEO is getting a major overhaul
It was back in September 2010 that I first set up Premium Membership on the ReallySimpleSEO.com website. It was about 6 months since I first had first started the site and was doing okay with selling the SEO leads and a bit of client work, and had an idea that I could make some side money by having a range of membership restricted content on the site.
I researched the different WordPress membership plugins and decided that s2member offered the best all round features (and still think it’s one of the most powerful, although quite challenging to initially set up). Then I set about developing enough content for people to think it worth signing up.
It’s taken an ongoing effort of trial and error to learn what works and what doesn’t, especially in relation to what rate to charge for access.
After trying monthly charging then yearly then offerings membership with a paperback book, then back to monthly again, finally arriving at just £3 a month ongoing, I found a system that worked for me.
Over the years I’ve built on the initially unrestricted content (on the open site much of the content has restricted access without membership) to include eBooks and a few short email courses.
That’s pretty much how it stood until this summer with not a great deal of content being published for the first part of 2016 while I developed the Budget SEO Package. Now it’s time to move things forward again and over the next year you’re going to see some big changes to the membership area.
First I’ve recently added two more eBooks, A Simple Guide to Content Marketing and Where is My Website in The Search Engines. That brings the total number of eBooks to 10.
The biggest change will come with the adding of many more email courses. I’ve had a few of these running for a while now namely the 5 Day Boost Course and The 8 Day SEO Audit Course. The feedback from these courses has been fantastic (just read the testimonials on the 5 Day Course’s Page) and I’ve found its the way people like to learn with the short page format and daily email doses of learning, so I’m currently creating many more of them on a.wider range of website marketing topics.
