Characteristics of A Community Group Membership Site
A community membership is one where much if not all of the content is created by the members themselves. The main task of the membership site owner is to moderate the content so it remains searchable and to a quality standard that the members appreciate.
There may be some fixed content created by the site owner such as a knowledge base or white papers, but the bulk of the content is generated on an ongoing basis by the members.
A Community site may be free or have a monthly, annual or lifetime subscription. Free sites will often include advertising where the non-free membership simply involves removal of the ads.
The goal can be to build a large membership audience then sell products that have an element of scarcity so there are more members wanting to attend then there is capacity to satisfy. These offers may include:
- Mastermind Groups
