Having a popular membership site is a great way to earn lots of recurring income.
recruiting an army of affiliates is an essential part of exploding your sales
Use a trusted affiliate marketplace like jvzoo to look after your affiliates and give yourself a huge leg up over your competition.
Setting up a membership site has gotten a lot easier over the last year. Not only that, it has gotten a lot cheaper! (Think free!)
If you have never set up a membership site before, you should give S2member a try. It is very powerful and it is free. It offers up to four paid levels and a free level, plus file protection and a whole lot more.
The only issue with the free version used to be that it did not integrate easily with a third party affiliate program. You had to set up your own affiliate program and integrate it that way, or pay a programmer to integrate it with a third party.
Having a third party looking after your affiliate program gives you a lot more credibility with your affiliates, not to mention you do not have to look after paying the commissions.
