  1. Definitely one of my favorite IBM episodes so far. Really simple & actionable advice.


  2. Tom Ruwitch says:

    Great episode. I recently bought some other marketing packages and have been so busy listening to those that I hadn’t listened to IBM for quite a while. This podcast reminded me why I like IBM so much. Great, actionable information, presented clearly by genuine guys who are living what they teach.

  3. Great episode. If the “you” two yrs ago could see “you” now…

    You guys are doing a great job and deserve all of your success.

  4. Great episode. I always look forward to your podcasts so keep up the good work. Seen as I just got laid off the other day I will be (hopefully) using your advice to jump start an internet business.

  5. I really enjoyed this episode. This is my first episode as well. I have tried many membership sites and been so disappointed for all the reasons you mentioned. Maybe I’ll check out IBM Academy.

  6. Thanks for the mention on the show today guys! Your podcast and the academy have been a big part of my 9-5 escape.

    Also, I have to say that I really feel like I have a good idea about how to set up a membership site after listening to this podcast. You really laid it all out on the table. Great podcast!

  7. I just got laid off from a company that did a membership type service but under delivered on the service side. Not adding new useful information and not communicating with its members. If I would have had assess to this podcast 6 months ago I may have been able to turn them. The points made in this podcast are very useful.

  8. Chris O'Byrne says:

    Hey, Guys! What forum software do you use for your membership site? Just knowing for membership site software was worth listening to the show, not to mention all the other useful information you share so freely. Awesome!

  9. IBM54 is not downloading. Only part of the podcast appears on my Real Player. Can I get it at another site?

    Hi great recent podcasts (as usual!) on membership sites.
    Couldn’t figure out where you wanted this info posted, so here goes:
    Here a couple that I subscribe to that are a little different from what you have here. They don’t have the forums/community, etc. They are classes online, but awesome. As a graphic artist/photographer, these sites are absolutely worth the cost. I keep wondering where else one could copy this format. I’m playing with some ideas for my own future business.

    I’ve also been considering joining:

    and I’m also on the verge on joining your academy!!

    Happy New Year, Leslie Nicole

  11. Hi Chris,

    I know this is a little bit late, just in case you haven’t found the forum software for membership site, I’d recommend vBulletin.

    It’s been used by a lot of the leading Internet marketers and gives you a lot of flexibility and can be easily customised.

    Hope this helps.
