Memberships sites are HUGE right now and new ones continue to pop up every day.

Some aren’t great…and some are insanely successful raking in millions.

Last year, we created our very own first ever membership site called The League, aimed at people people who want to maximise their sales using email marketing.

We’ve built up a great community of members and we’ve loved watching it grow over the last year.

However, it certainly hasn’t all been plain sailing and there were definitely some lessons learnt along the way which would cause us to do some things differently, if we were ever to create another membership site.

So, if you’re thinking about starting your own membership site, we want to share with you six of the major lessons we’ve learnt while creating and growing The League.
