I am launching a website this spring, offering personal coaching services, blog content, newsletters, daily challenges, etc.. My question is, should I make this a paid membership site or should I just offer my content for free and attract advertisers and offer some digital products for extra income?
Where will traffic to the site come from?
Do you have a target market identified? Beyond "people who need personal coaching services"? (Which is pretty non-specific to me)
Do you know if they are willing to pay for your content?
Just putting up a blog is not enough, for either case.
