Jason is not only a great friend but he is also the founder of TheBrownReport.com. I’ve known Jason for many years and he is an amazing entrepreneur that has truly built an incredible online business. We’re going to talk all about memberships today and how he built his membership community around stock and options trading. We’re going to get into something we’ve never talked about on the Membership Masters Podcast before - having big join fees (up to $1K) to get into membership and high ticket membership prices ($199/month). We’re going to break down Jason’s team so that you can learn how to build a team that can grow your membership site. Jason talks about how you can use the powerful tool of a join fee to not only make more but to actually get more people to join your business. I learned a ton about how to get more members and make more money and I know you will too!
Jeff Twiddy is one of my very own students from the Flip Your Life Community. Jeff is a former school teacher and football coach that started his own membership site in the education space a few years ago.
He has now built an incredible membership site with more than 3,000 members paying an average of $47/month. His resources are used in hundreds of schools all over the world.
In today’s episode we go deep into Jeff’s membership site and discuss how to up-sell free trials into annual members on your ‘Thank You’ page, the life-changing nature of creating your own monthly recurring revenue business, and how outsourcing content creation allowed Jeff to focus on building his million dollar membership.

This interview was awesome! We covered everything from the power of memberships as a passive income stream, using paid advertising to grow your membership, and even a little discussion about professional wrestling, something we are both huge fans of! And yes, we tie it to memberships. You’ve got to hear it to believe it!
Jody Moore is a great example of how you really can change your life and others, through the membership model. The membership model allows more people access to Jody's life coaching, and allows her to help more people at the same time. More than 4,000 members, if we're getting technical. But, those members don't even know that she has that big of a following, because her membership, like ours, allows her the ability and freedom to devote her attention where she is needed most.
Robbie Baxter is the OG evangelist of the membership model. Her book, The Membership Economy, predicted the rise of subscription services like Netflix. And, was literally our membership bible for growing our first membership site into a million dollar membership.
In today’s episode we dive deep into when and where you should use free trials, pricing your membership, and we discuss her new book, The Forever Transaction. We are going to talk about all things memberships with the person who literally wrote the book on the membership model.
Joe Nicoletti has had his course affiliate marketing business, Learn Scrivener Fast, for a long time. We sat down at a coffee shop one day, to figure our how to add a recurring revenue to his website. It was funny because we weren’t planning on it, we were just hanging out on a whim! Most people pay us to take to them about memberships and we have a plan.
Part of me was thinking, “I wonder what would happen if a guy who has course sales would open a membership.” Because, most people we see start from nothing, Joe was different because he already had an existing loyal audience.
Joe says what went so well for him was that he was very specific on his course topics from the get-go. His specificity brought in a core group of laser-focused people. The only time he struggled was when he was chasing other things, focusing on how to get more money into the business, which took away from his focus on the courses.
