Your first step in starting a membership site is to choose a topic. The topic should be something that you are fervent about, have some expertise in, and are viewed by others as having knowledge about the topic. Sit down and make a list of all the things that you have interest in, your hobbies, your vocations, any business training you have had, or even what you do when you have free time. Are you a consultant, speaker, or mentor to others on any topic? Once you have narrowed down a topic it is time to set up your member's only site.
