Scott runs a podcast as well as a blog, so content marketing is a big part of their promotional strategy. However, as I’ve seen with several sites so far, this free content isn’t found until you scroll down to the site’s footer. The main top navigation is all about offer and the paid side of the site. This is definitely an interesting idea. As a “blog guy”, my instinct has always been to have that content front-and-center right at the top. Clearly, it can work the other way, too.

It appears that they are running the site on Paid Memberships Pro. I’m not really familiar with this platform and I wonder why they chose to go that route over some of the more established solutions. It does appear as if the code is non-obfuscated, meaning a coder could go in and customize things quite a bit. That’s a good draw if you need something very custom.

I always look for the blog. 🙂 On Guitar Tricks, it is pretty much buried down in the footer. What this shows me is that their entire site is pretty much designed to become part of the membership. Their blog goes under the “News” section of the membership. It is open to the public. I can see the point of this, though, because essentially the entire site is gated. Unless a person finds them on search, by the time a person finds the blog, they’re an email subscriber and have the free membership.
PencilKings is positioning themselves, it seems, as a real alternative to more expensive art schools. They use professional artists to create their material. They call their training “collegiate-level training”. This makes sense because being an alternative to more expensive schools is a good hook. This is also helping gear these artists toward real careers in their craft.

One of the big things about Insider is how much teaser content there is. Being that they have the membership and the public site all integrated together, you constantly SEE what members are getting but you run into the paywall if you’re not a member. This is the kind of setup you can ONLY have if your blog and your membership site are one and the same.
One of the big decisions you’ll need to make when it comes to your membership site is how much you’re going to charge.

With time, you might consider using an affiliate marketing program, in which other sites get paid a percentage of each sale they send you. But it’s questionable whether a brand new site will benefit from an affiliate program. Although some new sites have profited, many new sites has yet to build the name recognition that makes using affiliates profitable.

The program runs $11.99/month, $28.75/quarter or $108/year. I’d be curious to see how many people take the quarterly option. I know in my own business, when I offered a quarterly it just didn’t work. Everybody went for the annual plan. Plus, an annual plan would increase lifetime customer value quite a bit. I don’t know the numbers internally, but I’d probably want to test getting rid of the quarterly option and see how it tests out.
