Praestabilis – Excellence in Marketing – 055

Welcome to Episode 55 of Praestabilis: Excellence in Marketing


The topic of episode 55 is membership sites. Do you have a membership site? Did you know that it’s never been easier to set up and run an online membership site to build your business? I explain why starting with a free model may be the most effective method for you, and how you can grow over time with a paid site.

When I first came online in 2006, the software necessary to set up a membership site was expensive, clunky, and required a tech person to make changes and updates on a regular basis. At that time I believed that having my own membership site would not be possible.

Within a year I had joined a Mastermind that included two brilliant young men. You may recognize one or both of their names – Stu McLaren and Tracy Childers. They had also been frustrated with the current situation around building membership sites and decided to do something about it. The result was Wishlist Member, their WordPress plugin that made it simple, easy, and inexpensive to set up membership sites. Over that summer I watched as their new business took off around the world, and I started my very first membership Site!

Actions are everything and bring about the results we wish to achieve. Be sure to come aboard for my complimentary Action Habits Challenge and we can work through this topic together. As a part of this training I am highly recommend the book Start With Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action by Simon Sinek.

I have a new book with Ellen Finkelstein entitled Speakers! The Quick Public Speaking to Business Method: Turning Your Talk into an Ongoing Revenue Stream. Whether you are brand new to speaking or are a seasoned public speaker, this book will make a difference for you.

The first book I co-authored with Ellen is Authors!

I have just completed another new book titled Booster Rocket Launches: Helping Your Prospects to Find You Everywhere. I’m using my ongoing authorship as an example of why baby steps will never take you where you’d like to go in your life and business.
