Mike Morrison discovered the potential of having an online business when he made his first dollar online more than a decade and a half ago. He is the co-founder of the company, The Membership Guys, where he plays a crucial role in the growth of successful 6 to 7-figure memberships. He has worked with big brands such as McDonald’s, ITV and Ancestry.com and owns the largest free Facebook group for membership site owners.
Mike talks about the factors to consider in creating and running a successful and growing membership site. He explains how you can establish relationships in your community and how to reduce member overwhelm and site owner overwhelm. He also goes over how you can make the experience — both yours and that of your customers — more relevant and personal despite the number of members.
