Overcoming The Fear Of Giving Away Your Expertise For Free

Most memberships are based on the owner’s expertise and knowledge, so why would you start giving it away for free?

 

It may feel counter-intuitive, but content marketing has proven time and time again to be a hugely successful way of growing memberships.

 

The fear of free content is one of the most common topics in The Membership Academy, so I’ve brought together the three reasons why you really don’t need to worry about sharing free content and why, in fact, it is likely to help your membership grow.

Essential Learning Points:

 

  • Where the value of your membership truly lies
  • How you are always in control of your content and how you share it
