Moving from Free to Paid Content: How to Turn Your Blog Content into a Membership Site

A session at Financial Blogger Conference

Friday 7th September, 2012

10:45am to 11:30am (MST)

This session will cover the technology behind membership sites.

A lot of people get hung up on the technology involved in packaging their expertise into a membership site. After last year's talks from Baker and Ramit many bloggers are interested in offering something of their own but often don't know where to start.

People have a lot of options, ranging from a simple service like Ruzuku to more flexible but complex self hosted software like aMember. In between are alternatives like WishList and Digital Access Pass that require you to self-host but have a pretty simple user interface to get things setup.

This session will also cover the pros and cons of the different types of membership software options: how they integrate with tools for delivering email (aweber, mailchimp) and publishing video (easy video player / flow player) since those are key parts of a membership site.

To make it more practical, rather than just a theoretical discussion, a case study will probably be presented.
