Fifty years ago, people felt rejected by society if they didn’t fit into a certain cookie-cutter mold. Today, individuality is often celebrated — and frequently rewarded. Thanks to the internet, sharing unique hobbies and connecting with others with similar niche interests is easy and encouraged.
In fact, there are websites dedicated to passions of all types, filled with communities of like-minded individuals who connect in forums. These websites, often referred to as membership sites, come in all shapes and sizes, and there’s seemingly one for every topic (scuba diving, guitar lessons, yoga, card magic and even crystal healing certification courses — the list goes on).
And while it may seem daunting, done-for-you membership site platforms can help anyone with passion and expertise on a topic to easily start a site. All it takes is a little planning. The best part is, membership sites can be run from anywhere and, once they’re up and running successfully, they require minimal upkeep.
