“Have you noticed that many businesses utilize a membership business model and most of us don’t even realize, we’re so comfortable with it? “
Membership separates so many of the “evil” sides of the Internet from the good. Anyone, anywhere can sign-up or join a site for free. In fact thousands of illicit and questionable “fake” users, especially many from Eastern Europe, do so to build a presence for back links and other revenue generating tactics. But charging a nominal or fair-market fee for membership usually discourages unwanted members and builds a positive, valuable community of users.
