The Very Best Scrapbooking and handi-Crafts site on the internet!!

Membership Sites May 27, 2008

I have had my own social site for some time…I changed platforms and will be re introducing my updated site soon, but, in the meantime, I have been doing a great deal of research about membership sites, member recruiting, member retention, and how to engage my members to interact with one another and to bring their own friends in…I have recently found a website that has some great information about those very topics and is also tied to one of the most sought after membership software programs today. Mark Braunstein, is one of the Guru’s or Masters of online membership sites and is also quite the video guru…Knowing Mark a little, and having spoken to him about membership sites, I know that the information he provides is top notch!

Recently, Mark teamed up with another Guru…Mike Filsaime. These two men are leaders in the industry and have what it takes to make it online, they also won’t be jumping ship anytime soon. What I like about their product, VTribes, is that it is fully functional, and tailored to meet your individual needs. You do not have to be a coding expert to be able to run a membership site when you purchase your membership software from VTribes.

Below are links to some of my favorite posts on their website CommunityZen:

Have you Stumbled??? December 18, 2006

Have you Stumbled Upon lately?  My husband is a guru in the internet community, and he is always finding new techie tools and telling me about them.  If you haven’t signed up on StumbleUpon.com you should do it right away! It is still fairly new…but, it is a great resource for anyone who is wanting to look up great sites!  The reason it is different from most search engines, is because other people just like you and I are recommending their favorite sites or sites that they have been to and liked.  You can also blog there, which isn’t what interested me, but, hey….you never know!  Anyway, I am hooked!  I love this tool bar!!  And, I love all the great info that I have found!  Anyone who reads my blog know that I mostly try to write about a subject and post it like an article, but, since I have a new partner and I do this very same thing for several of our sites, I decided that I would still try and keep up my blog here, and do what I have always done, but also I wanted to be a bit more personal and share some things that mean something to me.  Anyway, here is a link to my Stumble page, you should check it out!!
