Membership websites are one of the hottest Internet business models today, since there are many advantages to starting one. Here are the top three advantages to starting a membership website that are sure to get your creative and entrepreneurial juices flowing.

Advantage # 1: Steady Stream of Income

The first advantage - a steady stream of income - is also the most popular reason for starting a membership website. Many would-be Internet entrepreneurs search for business models that will bring them a steady stream of income, eventually replacing their full-time jobs altogether.

A membership website is the answer to those prayers.

Subscriptions to membership websites can be set up for specified amounts of time: a month, quarter or annually. 

For example, let's say you charge $14.95 per month for access to your membership website and have 250 subscribers, who continue their subscriptions for an entire year. That adds up to a whopping $44,850, which is more than a lot of people's annual incomes and just enough to kiss that dead-end job goodbye!

Keep your content fresh and interesting, and you will have created a steady stream of income for as long as your customers are satisfied with their memberships.

Advantage # 2: Low-Start Up Costs

Another significant advantage to starting a membership website is its low start-up costs. Most people that are looking for an additional stream of steady income are doing so because their current income is limited. Because membership websites require a low initial investment, they are perfect for would-be entrepreneurs on a tight budget.

Advantage # 3: High-Profit Margin

The third advantage to starting a membership is actually a combination of numbers one and two:

Subscriptions + Expenses = High-profit margin

Membership websites can yield high profit margins, even if you're just beginning your membership website and only have a few subscribers.

For example, let's say you only have 50 members during the first three months after your launch at $20 a month. That's still $1000 per month.

Remember with a membership website your income potential is unlimited. You can earn as much or as little as you like, depending on how much time you'd like to devote to your site.
