When creating a profitable membership site that will last for the long-term, it’s important to be able to provide continuous updates to your site. That includes updating with the latest news, information, and products. After all, if you don’t update your membership site, your members will grow tired of the outdated resources you have inside and will cancel their subscriptions, which will lead to the end of your residual profits.
However, it’s not always easy to come up with new fresh content, especially if you’re not overly familiar with the topic or niche your site is centered around. While it’s likely a good idea to always have some knowledge of your topic or niche before building a membership site around it, there are also other ways to add new fresh content to your site. One way is by outsourcing the job of creating new content for your membership site.
You can post on sites such as eLance.com your assignment of coming up with new fresh content on the topic or niche your membership site is built around. Of course, you’ll have to pay to have this done, and the amount of money you pay will depend on how much work you are outsourcing and how much the freelancer asks for. While it’s not always the case, more money spent will often lead to better work produced.
Utilizing a quality freelancer can be a great way to provide quality content on a topic or niche that you are not that experienced in and are unable to write quality content on. While you can build a long-term relationship with the freelancer to regularly provide you with quality content for your site, you can also take advantage of this by learning more about the topic or niche your site is centered around so that you can write up quality content on that topic or niche in the future as well. Then you could provide twice the amount of quality content each update period, which will likely go a long way toward pleasing and retaining your members.
