"Hey what's up? It's PAT here. And this is the third episode in an installment of emergency podcast episodes. That have been coming out here on the podcast and you can find all the other emergency podcast episodes over at smart passive income dot com slash tool kit. Which is where this one will live as well. But you're listening to it right now. Obviously so you don't need to go there right now. However if you miss those episodes make sure to check that out because the first episode was how to Manage Your Business in time of crisis like this. The second one was what to do if you had gotten laid off for furloughed or if you happen to know somebody who had gotten laid off and how you might be able to take some knowledge that you have some experience some skills and turn them into a freelancing business you either on the side or potentially full-time down the road to supplement your income right now. This episode in particular is for you. Whether you're just starting out in business or you have one already. There is an amazing opportunity. That was brought to my attention by a good friend of mine. Steve mcclaren who has been on the show before in the crazy thing about stu is he is helping people right now build memberships and think about it in a time of crisis like this where we're all quarantine at home. There is a huge need for people to find their people their communities. There's there's no in-person community meet UPS. There's no events there's no conventions anymore. And this is a time when membership sites are absolutely thriving and in this episode. I wanted to bring stew on talk a little bit more about this opportunity and again it can be added onto stuff that you already have or could be the start of something new and we talk about exactly how to get started with building a membership. This is great because it also provides potentially a recurring income for you. And you don't have to start big either and you don't even need a huge email list or ton of people already following you. We go through a number of examples to showcase the possibilities and then we have a lot of even strategic ways to go about creating founders members group which is a way to validate whether or not a membership idea even makes sense for you right now plus a lot of a lot of other great stuff but I wanted to bring stew on. He's a family man. He's a good friend of mine. He's helping loads of people during this crisis. Find the opportunities that are right there and nobody else's talking about this either so this is why this is here and You know I imagine one day a few people who listen to this hopefully many will come back and say man. Patty was that emergency episode with Steve. Mcclaren that changed everything for me. Some really excited to introduce to you. Here he is from tripe stew. Welcome back to the SBA podcast. Thanks for joining me man. Yeah listen I appreciate you having me? Thanks so much times are crazy right. Now as you know and unite chatting the attacks or like do we gotta come together and do this podcast. Because there's a lot of people who need help this'll be added onto our toolkit page at smart passive income dot com slash which has a few emergency episodes that we've already recorded internally with our team. I'm happy to reach out to you because you've been focused really hard on helping others during this crisis well specifically in and around new opportunities related to building memberships because community is really important right now and it's always been but even more so now just tell us a little bit about what's going through your head recently. What you're traveling up to and how people are making great opportunities in the moment that we're in right now. Well it's interesting because you know there's really two sides to the coin and I don't want to minimize it all the seriousness of what's happening because you have a friend of mine. Carrie who's an ER nurse you know? She's actually living in a trailer in her driveway. Right now to be separated from her husband and kids so that you know she doesn't impact them in any way and so I see here it on the front lines of the health side and then I also see it hear it on the front lines of the business side and the ripple effect so many businesses are experiencing one of my groomsmen in my wedding. Mike he owns a restaurant and sales completely dried up. You know friend of my wife. Lindsey owns a brewery and things have gotten a lot harder for them and we have another friend Natalie and her husband wound multiple coffee shops and again things are really hard so I understand and feel the impact in weight of that but the other side of the coin. Is that what it's done is The there's never been a time now. When more people are online spending more time online than right now and in fact there was a research study that was released two weeks ago out of the UK and they survey two thousand people and they ask them. What are they looking to do? During the quarantine and these people sixty nine percent of them said that they want to use this time they wanNA use this time to be more productive and learn a new skill. Things like gardening things like coating things like a new language or instrument or whatever it may be and so people wanna be productive. Fifty seven percent of the people surveyed said that they're looking forward to using the time to pursue passions. And so what we're seeing. Is this play out in our tribe membership community where people's memberships are actually booming right now Levi who retired membership. He seeing his sales literally triple during this time. We see Emily Jeffords who just finished the launch for her membership. That helps artists. She welcomed three hundred sixty seven new members with two emails to instagram. Lives and a few social posts or Tamra Bennett. Who just welcome four hundred and twenty new members into a membership helping people paint. Decorative door hangers. And I've got lots of examples of people right now. During this time who are thriving because people want to be productive. They WANNA use this time. And so there's that there's also the fact that we can't get community the way in which we normally do. We can't get into church. We can't get into schools who can't get it on our sports teams and so because of that people still crave it but they membership perfectly support staff in that community aspect and lasted what I would say in. This is really where I want to encourage. People is that all of this has really just created a whole new set of problems. That weren't there before problems. That are waiting for savvy entrepreneurs to solve for example. You and I. We both have young kids and we are. You know two of millions of parents who have been thrust into becoming homeschooling parents because of the shutdown schools and so what we know we don't want we know we don't want our kids on the IPADS and you know in front of the TV all day but the question is like well. What do we do you know as so? This is like an example of a problem that has emerged waiting for people. Like you know Anna Gilio. She has a membership site that provides teachers lesson plans. She's made a slight pivot and she's launched a new membership site providing parents those same lesson plans or KC hope you know Casey Story. I love you know. She sent me this unbelievable message on Instagram. And she just said. I'm just so grateful that I've learned how to create an online membership. She said because she is a a brick and mortar art studio then. She said she had to make the tough decision to close it. And she said normally I would have been freaked out like how am I going to pay my employees? At How am I gonNA pay myself for. Is this business even going to survive this time? She said but I don't have any of that anxiety because my online membership her calligraphy membership is bridging. That gap now similarly. What she did is that she also saw. There's an opportunity here. Millions of parents don't know what to do with their kids. She's like every day. We teach kids how to paint. Why can't we just teach them online? So her and her team spun up a new membership site within a week ended up welcoming over three hundred new members teaching kids. Art Lessons Sharing that with you because there is another side to the coin here and we got to pay attention to that and it's an opportunity that just waiting for entrepreneurs to show up and serve and this is a good time to do that. I definitely agree. I mean Our good friend Mike. Ohio is always asking us. You know what does this make possible? Anything especially in the realm of bringing communities together in a membership like like fashion or using this time to create a course or or whatever it is there are opportunities that are right there and it reminds me of my two thousand eight story and a lot of other people's two thousand stores. It's interesting how two thousand eight is a very common year when it comes to people who have started a business. It took that moment in time just like the moment in time people have right now to step out of their comfort zone and try something new. your commentary about new problems that are arising is very interesting. I was speaking to somebody the other day who is an interior designer and instead of just you know the architects aren't building anything right now. Because nobody's bill you. Nobody's spending money but this person has made a shift into helping people designing interiors of their homes to look good further. Zoom calls does amazing. Not a great great idea. It's like this is what they're becoming known for and they're creating like I think a coarser a book or something about it right now or just going live and talking about it but I mean there's opportunities there with like you said a lot of the things that are happening right now now. I'm curious because a lot of people are a lot of people in my audience are creating courses right now and building things like that. But the membership angle. The community component on top is what makes the membership stuff really attractive Where might one start with how I even in this environment bring a community together like what like what is to start thinking about in order to make that happen well? We often think that we got to have a big audience before we start doing this. Like we gotta have tens of thousands or thousands of people. The reality of it is pat. That's just not true. You know Actually I got a message at the other night on again. Instagram from the gentleman his name Caesar and he's a corporate consultant and right now those corporate consulting contracts have drive right up and so he's just like you know he wasn't sure what to do but he had heard me talking about doing a founding member launch and we can explain and unpack that if you want but essentially. It's a very simple way to get started to kind of gauge whether there's interest in the market and to create momentum for yourself and so he had a small group had eight hundred people in his group and he did a founding member and he's just me this message you said. I can't believe it like he's welcomed over fifty new members into his membership. Just doing a simple founding member launch and so the reality of it is. Is that when you're thinking about? You know what a membership makes sense? Here's what I want to encourage everybody to think to really drill down number one. You know a great membership One of the things that can do is help solve an ongoing problem so an example of an ongoing problem right now. Millions of us are working from home. And if we've got a pet that dog that barks nonstop well that's interrupting for interviews and video chats zoom meetings and so forth and a an out of control. Dog doesn't instantly become the perfect puppy like that like there's a process to solving that problem and it takes time and makes for a great membership weight. Loss is another great example of a problem based membership. Where you know. You don't go from.
