Jen outlines the benefits of the membership model. Recurring revenue is key for the life of a successful business. Brendan Burchard told her (and 100’s of others at the Kajabi conference) that if you can’t go away for 3 weeks and still generate income, you don’t really have a business.

He’s kinda right. Jen breaks down the membership model as she’s learned it. You’ll want to take notes. She’s also going to share the transcript, and a handy guide as well so you can revisit while planning your membership site.

There are 2 key elements of a successful membership site. Only 2. So it’s important to do them well.

A Great Tool for Member Retention in Membership Sites

Beamer Blog Post.png

This is an incredible new app that would be useful for any website, but I think is particularly phenomenal for membership sites. That’s because it allows you to share announcements with your members in a few very slick ways.


This is what Beamer looks like on the sales page for my membership site.

This is what Beamer looks like INSIDE the membership site.


The biggest challenge with membership sites is that members start off with good intentions but they never get to the majority of your content. After a few months of getting billed by you, but having not consumed any of your content, they cancel. With Beamer, each time a member comes to the membership site, they will see exciting announcements. You can bring their attention to something new you’ve got going on or maybe feature content that’s been in the membership site for a while that they may have missed.

One of the most powerful features that Beamer offers is push notifications. When someone lands on your page/site, they will see this pop up:

If your member allows notifications, then each time you publish something new to your Beamers, they will receive a notification!

Members can also leave you feedback on each notification:

The analytics are super detailed and informative:
