If you're an author, expert, coach or entrepreneur, you NEED a membership site.

Why?  ... because a membership provides another natural platform to showcase your expertise and build your tribe.  Plus, the financial leverage you can achieve is exponential. 

Yet, many people hesitate to build a membership program because they aren't sure where to start, what technology to use, how to structure the program or how to get members to join.

If these concerns feel familiar, this special launch prep program (created in collaboration with Tamara Monosoff) will make it easy to add a membership site as a source of income to support your book, speaking, consulting or other business goals.

Here's what you get:

"I have been wanting to create a membership site in order to promote an online course. I am not tech savvy and had no idea where to start, what to charge, which membership site would work best for me and how to make sure that it was easy to use and accessible.

Luckily I found Joy!  She answered all of my questions thoroughly. Her attention to detail was remarkable and much appreciated. I would highly recommend her course!"

"I was not particularly aware of the benefits of running a membership site until I heard Joy’s introduction to her programme.

I had previously had a disappointing experience with a membership site but when I heard Joy talking about how it should be done properly, with the right structure, pricing and testing, I realised that I could do a much better job with her help this time.

I am now fired up to get started.

I would suggest to anyone who was thinking about starting a membership site that you should learn what Joy has experienced and now passes on, to ensure your Membership really delivers for your members and for you."

"Before I participated in this course, I thought a membership programme would be way too difficult for me, certainly not a thing for me. But right from the beginning, Joy introduced the subject in such a clear and easy to follow manner that she had my attention.  She addressed all the important stuff and I noticed that all it would take would be for me to become clear about how I was going to present my material in the future. It helped me a great deal to see that this was actually going to be do-able. 
  
I highly recommend this course because Joy’s presentation and materials are so well structured and she provides solid advice. Plus she’s so very friendly! 
  
I enjoyed this course so much that I’ve signed up for the year-long Advanced Skills program!”
