Sounds to me like he needs to learn simple economics.

 

Stop adding new sites if you can't afford to pay members on time.

 

With every purchase set aside a payouts fund covering commissions and any cash promotions.

 

Focus on 1-2 sites and make them popular with a good reputation instead of burning domain after domain starting over.

There are a couple of issues in this one. First, I can understand his desire to encourage inactive members to become active again. But, not to the point of yelling or threats. There are other far more constructive ways to go about encouraging member to reactivate their accounts or getting active again. Having contests would be one good way to go about it. I can also understand the need to "clean house". I think it's one of the major frustrations related to this industry; inactive members. Again, threats are not the way to go about it. It's also a good way to destroy your reputation online.

 

AS a member of some safelists, etc. I track the ones that are working out for me as far as promotional responses go. The ones that work, I focus on and the ones that are not working I drop. I think a lot of people do this. It's simply a matter of doing business on line. People who are looking to make money, need responsive promotions to make money. I tend to think that alot of exchange owners get into this not really trying to think of ways to encourage member participation, but stick to the "run of the mill scripts". These people need to understand that, in order to succeed, they need to set themselves apart from the rest.

 

I mentioned this before, that this guy obviously does not understand the industry he is involved in. I think, if he did, he would rethink his entire business model. From what I understand, sites like this do not make a great deal of money. Most are lucky to break even. Unless the owner is savvy enough to understand this and use that knowledge to his advantage, he/she will lose money.

 

I agree with the comment above. Focus only on one or two sites. Create a fund to pay members. Use the rest to promote or develop your site (or do both). Keep the ones that are showing promise and sell the others.

Some people are also really badly suited to owning membership sites, in that they lack the social skills necessary to communicate well with users. Some are probably nice enough people, but just come across as arrogant, unsympathetic or unfriendly.

Clare, very well said, if you wasn't already the #1 Team Leader, I would vote that you were!

 

I'm sure that a lot of people have never had their own business online or offline. It's very easy to get your own business online, in fact, It's so easy, that I got my own membership site! :)

 

Lack of social skills in dealing with people online and offline is a sure way to kill your business very quickly.

 

I agree with you Clare, that some of the owners are nice people and just come across unfriendly in their emails and texts.

Most people don't truly appreciate what running their own business entails or have the proper skill sets in place. The old rule was the "rule of 500", where each person you deal with can have positive or negative results from 500 others who know someone who knows someone. On the Internet, that figure can go into the thousands, millions, or billions with all the social media contacts everyone has. Everything we do online can be seen by more people than we want to imagine. Social skills are what will kiss us or kill us. We have all seen a lot of people and businesses taken down by one wrong post, email, video, or comment. Some have recovered while others not so much...so be careful what you put out there as it may come back to haunt you.
