Membership Sites For Speakers & Experts, Made Easy
The fastest, easiest path to starting and growing a recurring revenue membership site for branded thought leaders!

If you’ve been earning a living as a speaker, trainer, coach, teacher, consultant or any other type of independent sales person, you know that having only one primary income model or business activity is simply not going to cut it in today’s marketplace. In order to fully leverage your knowledge and expertise and maximize your earning potential, you must create and sell your own products - period.

Becoming a dynamic, influential thought leader is the best way to grow and develop every aspect of your business. And the fastest, easiest route to becoming a successful expert is to attract an audience in your niche markets and offer them your expertise through membership sites.

Starting your own membership site is perhaps the best business model ever. Just think about the profound ultimate benefit -

You find a customer ONCE and they continue spending money with you over and over again automatically.
A speaker student of ours does the math at a site of his -

512 Members X $20 Per Month = $10,240 Monthly Profit

That's over $10K coming in monthly from one site...from just 500 members.

If that doesn't get your attention, then it's time for a jolt of reality regarding what’s making speakers and thought leaders wealthy in today’s market!

The residual income that you receive month after month as the memberships are re-billed is at the heart of why so many people are scrambling to start their own sites.

Unfortunately, the emphasis is on STARTING...with very few FINISHING.

"WHY IS THAT?!"

I'll let you in on a little secret that hardly anyone "in the know" is talking about...

Starting and running a successful membership site the "traditional" way is HARD!

There, I said it. It's the truth, and anyone who has a successful membership site knows that it's the truth. It's not an easy thing to start, let alone keep running for an indefinite amount of time.

And I should know.

Let me explain why it's so tough to go the traditional membership route, and then I'll show you how I've since learned to SUPER-simplify things, and how I'm going to teach you my success blueprints so you can duplicate my results in a fraction of the time...

5 Reasons Why Starting A Traditional Membership Site Is A Bad Idea
(What? Did He Really Just Say That?!)
1. Traditional membership sites require too much work setting up.
One of the biggest reasons why emerging speakers and experts don't get their membership sites going in the first place is because there's a lot of work that goes into the initial setup. When you factor in writing a dozen or so original pieces of content to "stockpile" in your member's area, getting training materials in place, setting up a forum, installing scripts, assembling a "library" of materials and other things most membership sites include, it's just too time-consuming for the average speaker or coach to get everything in place.

2. Traditional membership sites have built-in pressures to create content. 
It's so easy to burn out by running your own membership site. You think going in that you'll never run out of ideas to write about. As one of the most prolific writers you'll ever run across, even I face this problem. Almost everyone does. And, even if you are supernatural and can continue coming up with new ideas for years and years, the demands of updating your site 3-5 times per week with new content requires discipline that most of us just don't possess. Factor in other demands of your speaking or coaching business - like private coaching and speaking engagements - and it makes the content creation process even more difficult.

3. Traditional membership sites require pricey and complicated scripts.
By running a membership site, you have to manage passwords, protect your member's area, keep up with who's active and who's stopped paying you, manage your content and at least two dozen other things. This requires a membership site "script". Have you looked at your options? Most inexpensive ones are either inadequate or incompatible. And others are way too expensive or have so many "bells and whistles" that you need to join a separate membership site just to learn how to use them

4. Traditional membership sites demand a large investment of time. 
You have a forum to moderate, cancellations to process, content to add, technical problems to troubleshoot, password problems to fix, and a variety of other tasks that usually get left out of the "sales letter" for a product or service trying to convince you to start a membership site. The truth is, a traditional membership site requires a large investment of time. Now, if this is the ONLY part of your business you'll have, you might pull it off. But, believe me, it will leave the average speaker, trainer or coach with virtually no time to do list-building, traffic generation and develop other products - let alone work on their other business activities.

5. Traditional membership sites include a continual battle to keep subscribers.
Here's a figure most people don't tell you about: the "average" subscriber will stay active for 3-4 months and then they'll cancel. What, you thought they'd join and stay with you forever? It simply doesn't happen that way. With more and more membership sites being launched, this figure is probably going to get worse. People simply don't have the time nor money to remain active members in many different programs. Factor in indifference, a lack of effort, poor results and a never ending amount of other enticing offers and you'll be lucky to get them to stay 3-4 months.
So, if "traditional" membership sites aren't the answer, what is?

We're glad you asked...
The 'Secret' to Successful Membership Sites
The Easiest Way To Create Simple, Profitable Membership Sites That Generate Unshakable Recurring Monthly Income & An Ever-Growing Member Base Is To Start A "Limited Period Membership" Site With the Memberships University  Success Blueprints!
My name is Richard Andrews, and I’m the Vice President of Inspiring Speakers Bureau, and Director of Education at SpeakerMatch Academy. Since 2007, I’ve worked with hundreds of speakers of all backgrounds. I’ve booked engagements for the biggest names in the speaking industry (President Carter, Jack Canfield, Les Brown, Magic Johnson, Robert Kiyosaki, Wayne Dyer, etc.) and have helped speakers go from unknowns to well-recognized figures. I've taught and trained speakers, experts, and branded thought leaders around the world. My original 6-Figure Speaking course has been implemented by emerging speakers in 23 countries (and counting!), and has become the most recommended and sought after speaker training program on the market today, with thousands of members around the world. You can learn more about me on my LinkedIn profile here: Richard Andrews.
When I tell you it's hard work building a viable, profitable speaking business, I'm speaking from first-hand knowledge. I'm also speaking from experience when I tell you that the absolute BEST way for thought leaders to start creating and selling products is through the recurring billing, limited period membership format. There is no easier, faster, more profitable way to transform your knowledge into money. PERIOD. For more than 10 years I've extensively researched and implemented literally dozens of ways for speakers, trainers, coaches, consultants, writers and other creative, independent business people to make money sharing what they know, and limited period membership sites are FAR AND AWAY the best and most reliable path to rock-solid success and predictable long-term growth!

There is a much easier, more effective (and more profitable) way to start and run your own membership site that is already becoming the "next big thing" because of its results. We call this kind of subscription program a "Limited Period Membership" Site
Definition: "Limited Period Membership" Site

A "Limited Period Membership" (LPM) consists of weekly content shared via autoresponder to paid members for a specified period of time.

Limited Period Membership Sites Are Here to Stay!

A quick glance at your Facebook news feed tells the story - speakers, experts and thought leaders are launching subscription courses and membership programs, and becoming more profitable than ever doing so. The top Fortune 5000 companies these days also reflect the fact that the 'Membership Economy' is growing faster than ever. NOW is the time to start creating subscription products by leveraging the power of recurring revenue in your business!

bEHIND THE SCENES OF MEMBERSHIPS UNIVERSITY
In a nutshell, here's what you'll be doing in running your own LPM site...

1. Write ONE 2-3 page lesson every week.

2. Load this lesson to an autoresponder for subscribers to access.

3. Sell access to the course, which would last 3, 6, 9, or 12 months.

It's that simple.

And the benefits are the exact opposite of the barriers for traditional membership sites...

1. Limited Period Membership (LPM) sites can be setup in 48 hours or less!
All you need to get started is one sales page, one lesson, one recurring billing processor (i.e. Clickbank, Stripe or PayPal) and one autoresponder. Do you see how this can REALLY happen for you! Not "sometime in the future", but quickly! Literally, this week you can have your own money-making membership site taking orders.

2. Limited Period Membership (LPM) sites are easy to maintain!
Instead of struggling to keep up with 3-5 fresh lessons or pieces of training content for your membership site week after week after week, all you need to do is write ONE new brief lesson every week for a short amount of time. And, here's the best part, once you have your lessons written...it's evergreen! That means, long after you've moved on to other projects, you can still add new customers to the membership site to access the course you've already completed!

3. Limited Period Membership (LPM) sites require no fancy, pricey add-ons!
You don't need to buy any complicated scripts to get an LPM site up and running. All it takes to actually "run" the technical side of your site is an autoresponder account and recurring billing (Clickbank, Stripe or PayPal) and that's it. It is so simple that anyone can set this up within hours. Period.

4. Limited Period Membership (LPM) sites require very little time!

Think about it: which takes longer to accomplish: (a) Create 3-5 new lessons and pieces of content every week, moderating a forum, etc., or (b) Write 1 new short lesson weekly? With an LPM site, the only real investment of time you'll have each week is to write one simple lesson to add to your autoresponder for members to receive. Hmmm, what could be better?

5. Limited Period Membership (LPM) sites keep subscribers active!
Here's the beauty of the "limited period" model: subscribers will stay active longer. Why? Because with a "traditional" membership site there is no ending spot. There is no finish line. It just goes on and on, long after the subscriber has lost interest and moved on to other things. BUT, with a "limited period" membership site, there IS an ending - after X number of weeks, the subscriber will have COMPLETED the course and will no longer pay. Many will stay simply because they are "almost there". And, when you factor in the numerous techniques we teach on "finishing", you'll get subscribers hanging on the edge of their seats in anticipation for the end of the series!

Let's look at a quick example of what a "limited period membership" site might look like...

Examples of Limited Period Membership Sites For Speakers, Coaches & Branded Experts
You too can start your very own type of LPM - no matter what your speaking & expert topic is and despite your inexperience as a speaker, consultant or coach!
LPM Site Example: Your Baby's First Year

Let's put on our thinking caps and use an ultra-simple example that the average person might choose. Suppose that your target audience is parenting, with an emphasis on new parents. What could you do in order to establish an LPM site?

You could create a 12-month membership entitled, "Your Baby's First Year". In each weekly lesson you might share what kind of developmental progress should be made, warning signs to look for, helpful hints for various aspects of parenting a newborn, etc.

The beauty of this particular type of program and (others like it) is that you can then create a "Your Baby's Second Year" and 'graduate' members into another year of membership! The same strategy can be applied to many more LPM program ideas, including those that are ideal for speakers, coaches, experts and every type of thought leader.

LPM Site Example: Starting a Speaking Business

This example is near and dear to my heart, as it's the way I built my own success. I had experience as a trainer, coach and consultant in helping new speakers start and grow their speaking business, so I decided to develop a course called 6-Figure Speaking which became the springboard for much of the training programs and resources in the Inspiring Speakers Bureau Membership Program as well as SpeakerMatch Academy, two of the most highly regarded membership programs in the speaking industry.

My LPM courses have been so well received precisely because they are the perfect way for new speakers to get the information they need  with the type of step-by-step training facilitated by the LPM business model. My LPMs help people make progress, largely because of the the format and delivery of the material itself.

And now you can follow my exact same success model!



LPM Site Example: Improve Your Golf Game

Not every type of LPM has to be about business or be highly sophisticated - far from it! Maybe you're a golfing expert, and you have specific tips on how to improve your putting game and lower your handicap. That's a perfectly feasible LPM idea.

You might decide to break your course down into three, four month parts, totaling 12 months. Your first 4 months could be about how to drive the ball better, your second 4 month part could be about improving your putting game, and your last 4 month section could be about other tips, tricks and advice for becoming a better overall golfer. Simple.

A course like this could easily upsell your private coaching offers, other golf-relevant training, or related aspects to your overall golfing expertise.

Whether you want to inform, inspire, educate or entertain, there's an LPM concept that can work for every market!

​Just a few other ideas for a limited period 
membership site could be...
  • Writing a book or eBook
  • ​Trading stocks and bonds
  • ​Buying and selling real estate
  • ​How to start a blogging or marketing business
  • ​​Inspirational/self-help
  • ​Gardening
  • ​How to overcome anxiety
  • ​Fundraising
  • ​How to overcome a business or personal challenge
  • ​Leadership in the workplace
  • ​Relationship building/repairing
  • ​​Losing weight
  • ​Running a marathon
  • ​​Anything related to your speaking, coaching or training business
  • ​Specialized or rare knowledge that you possess
  • ​​How to start a particular type of professional services company
I literally could go on and on - there are thousands of possibilities. If there's an audience for it, it's a viable LPM site idea - period!

In fact, you could create a membership site around just about any topic imaginable! (NOTE: In week #2 I'll actually give you plenty of ideas to choose from.)

So, I've pretty much now told you the basics of the concept here...but, obviously, there is a RIGHT way to do things and a WRONG way to do things.

While the process is very simple, and you could get started right now on your own, wouldn't you rather learn some amazing methods of turning this idea into a thriving money-maker for you?

I thought so.

That's why I'm going to ask you a simple question ...

Are you finally ready to turn your expert knowledge into a 6 - or even 7 - figure limited period membership site?

Each Memberships University Lesson Is Strategically Created In Such A Way That You'll See Results Quickly, And Build Your Membership Site Business The Right Way

The Memberships University Weekly Training Program...

Is Short and Easy to Digest
Each lesson is only 4-7 pages in length and contains nothing but "meat". There is a very real problem these days with "information overload" where the reader simply has too much information to absorb. Each lesson is purposefully brief (but thorough!) so you can quickly read it and put it into practice.



Forces You To Succeed Long-Term
While most eBooks and traditional membership sites (and even some high-priced coaching programs) pile on a bunch of information and leave you to put it all together for yourself, that isn't how things are setup in this training program. By giving you information in bite-sized portions for a full year (52 weeks!) you'll be more likely to actually do something with the content...and you'll be more likely to see real results for yourself.
Includes an Assignment to Complete
Each weekly lesson will give you an assignment to complete at the close of the information. Instead of giving you the usual "this is what I've done" stuff, I'm giving you "this is what you do" stuff! Each week you'll have some easy-to-implement action step to complete before moving on.




Helps You Make Real Progress
When you look back after each month, you'll actually be able to see progress by putting these lessons into practice. As new members join your site, new content is placed into the autoresponder sequence, new backend profits are generated, and you'll actually be able to see things growing step-by-step because you'll be following a systematic, weekly plan of action. Exactly when you need to take certain steps you'll take them.

Builds as You Go
Each lesson builds as your membership site does. Early on we'll discuss some basics to quickly establish your site. From there, we'll move into intermediate and then advanced tactics for multiplying and maximizing your site. Beginners won't get lost from the start and veterans won't get bored, as I'll throw in some golden nuggets along the way for our experienced crowd.




Creates a Foundation of Recurring Income
The best thing about running an LPM is the recurring revenue it can generate for you. You'll be amazed to discover how feasible it actually is to subscribe new members and build your income, month after month. As you learn the strategies and techniques needed to develop the marketing core of your LPM business, growth and bottom line success becomes increasingly predictable.

And Much, Much More...

Instead of simply publishing this information in some eBook or quick coaching program, we're making it available to you week after week in action-sized portions so you'll actually get results.

You don't need another eBook or random course to clutter up your computer, or more useless marketing words to clutter up your brain. What you need is a weekly "here's what you do next" action step to complete. What you need is for someone to show you how to quickly get started and then keep teaching you week after week so you don't get stalled along the way.

And that's exactly what you're going to get when you join Memberships University!

HERE'S WHAT TO DO NEXT...
I've been making a full-time living in the speaking and expert industry since 2007. That's a long, long time in speaking industry years! And I know how things work. As mentioned, I have extensively researched and implemented nearly every available, reputable money-making system and strategy for creating reliable, recurring online income for speakers and thought leaders - and the limited period membership model is, quite simply, THE VERY BEST in every major regard.

So if you're a speaker, trainer, coach, thought leader, consultant, small business person, marketer, sales person or really any type of independent entrepreneur trying to increase your income, then this is absolutely THE golden path for you to follow.

Now I could easily do what some of my contemporaries have done and make this some kind of high-ticket coaching program that sells for $1,997.00.

And, in doing so, I'd make a lot of money. But, many good people wouldn't be able to take advantage of the offer simply because it wouldn't be in their budget.

Listen, I know. I know what it's like to sink more and more money into empty promises. I know what it's like to be suckered into buying a high-priced item on an "easy" installment plan. I've been there and I know. Trust me, I know.

It is for that reason that I am not going to charge the thousands of dollars that I could charge for this program. Instead, I'm going to make it a no-brainer, and I'm going to make it downright affordable for every budget.

The price for a subscription to Memberships University is just $39 per month. While the program is 12 months in length, you can cancel anytime you choose. If you're not seeing results, then it doesn't cost you anything.

Your Money Will Be Returned By Stripe At The Click Of A Mouse Button If You're Unhappy.

Listen, here's the thing: Memberships University is sold through Stripe, which means I play by their rules. And their rules state that we've got to offer you an 8-week, money back guarantee. I'm fine with that. We stand behind our materials completely and know you'll be completely thrilled with the content and, more importantly, the results.

However, for your peace of mind, know that a refund is available anytime for the next 8 weeks by simply emailing us if you are dissatisfied for any reason.

I mentioned this earlier, but just want to stress it one last time because I think it's one of the most important benefits to you by using the "Limited Period Membership" model.

Once you have your lessons written, it's evergreen!

That means long after you've moved on to other projects, you can still add new customers to the membership site to access the series you've already completed!

Imagine this for just a moment -

500 members all paying you $20 per month ($10,000 monthly income) and you are off working on other projects! The residual income is still coming in even though you aren't actively working on the site, like a traditional membership site would force you to do. As old members finish the series, new members join up!

If that doesn't excite you, it's probably time to start cleaning out your garage and posting stuff on an online auction, because this ain't for you. But if you have any background or experience in professional speaking, training or coaching, then this program is absolutely for you, and it will evolve your business to a new level in a significant, powerful and lasting way.

Heck, even if you're not a speaker or expert, but you have something - ANYTHING - valuable and interesting to share - this is the training system you've been looking for to help you build a rock-solid, viable online business quickly.

So if this sounds exactly like what you're looking for, let's get started RIGHT NOW.

If you register before the 100 membership spots are filled, we can get to work on your business right away. We look forward to being your partner in success!
