What is a paid membership website?

This is a kind of website where you who is running it will be providing quality content, products, services or training for people who are members of your site, and you do these for a monthly or annual membership fee from the members.

Simply put, in running such online business, you’ve to set up a website where you can great contents in form of like articles, videos, infographics, eBooks, etc., and the people who are members of your site will have to pay a certain amount of money to you periodically to have access to those great contents you give.

For instance, let’s assume you have good knowledge of health and fitness for pregnant women, you can create a subscription based website where you give pregnant women with invaluable and correct tips that will benefit their health and fitness. In return, they pay you on monthly basis.

How much can you make with a paid membership site?

Let me start by pointing it out that making money shouldn’t be primary goal  of starting this online business. Give people something of value; something worth paying for.

Alright, how much can a membership website make? Well, it depends. Assuming you run a N2500 per month membership site with just 100 members, what will that amount to every month? That will amount to N250,000 per month. What if you have 1000 members paying as little as N500 a month, you make N500,000 every month! I’m sure by now you are getting the gist. So, it all depends on the amount you charge and the number of subscribers to your program.
