Subscription Newsletter websites & Sales

The Benefits of Running a Subscription Website

Whichever way you look at it, running your own Subscription Based Membership Website has so many advantages over other businesses. For example, think about the advantages of running an online business, where your main ‘product’ is merely ‘electrons’ (i.e. the "pages" of your website!).

There are many benefits of running an online business like this: -

Minimal investment – all you really need is a computer, and access to the Internet, and you’re in the game!
Low overheads – work from home, with no need for office premises, no travelling to work etc.
No stockholding – your website is your ‘product’, so no need to hold stock (NB: other than possibly ‘Back End’ products – see later).
No employees – run your business by yourself.
Run Part Time or Full Time, at hours to suit you.
Run your business from anywhere in the world.

The whole world can be your marketplace (depending upon your chosen ‘niche’ topic).
You can sell and deliver ‘digital’ products and services instantly, and for practically zero cost.

There is no other type of business marketplace that can provide you with these sorts of advantages.

If you want to run a membership site, WordPress can handle the whole thing for you, when combined with a membership plugin – in this post I will be taking a look at the different options.

Essentially Membership allows you to transform your WordPress, WPMU or BuddyPress site into a fully functional membership site – where you can provide access to downloads, online content, videos, forums, support and more through flexible membership levels and options
