If you have been thinking about setting up a membership site, I encourage you to take a look at Extreme Member. One of my students, Charles Parker, mentioned it to me last week, so I had to investigate further. They are offering 200 trial memberships for $2.95 for the first 15 days. If you have any interest in this at all, give it a try. There is no further obligation, and if it will build your business it may be the fastest and easiest way to start.
Extreme Member is run by several people in Australia and appears to be a high quality platform that is reasonably priced. After seeing what others have gone through with their membership software I had been reluctant to jump in, but this appears to be a viable solution to all of the technology issues. Extreme Member has a user friendly dashboard and can be set up easily. Take a look and decide if this is something you want to try. Charter memberships are always the best way to go, beacuse the price will never be as low again when they open it up to new people in the future.
