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:
