Membernaire is Jimmy D. Brown's 12-month Start a Membership Site training program. The sales letter states that you can start a membership site (and be taking orders) in just 48 hours.
The good news is that this course promises a much easier way to do that than the traditional methods. Which are not easy, I might add. My personal experience has included pulling my hair out on more than one ocassion. 😛
That being the case, and Membership Sites being such a widely recommended method of making money online, it's worth looking at a better way to set up and manage them - and a better way for your members to get more value from your offer.
I have walked through every inch of the sales letter, and the entire 52-week training program, and will give you my personal review...
Membernaire is delivered via email, one lesson per week for 52 weeks. The lessons are in PDF format which makes them easy to print and read offline if you choose. I like this format because I can create a 3-ring binder which each lesson, along with my own notes, and easily keep up or refer back to previous notes/lessons.
In addition to the weekly lessons, there are time-released bonuses every 90 days and several built-in "surprises" (templates, tools, coaching, etc). There is also a bonus at the end of the course.
It's worth it to take the course step-by-step and follow the lessons each week, which each include an assignment to complete. This keeps you in constant action, doing the right steps in the right order to get you exactly where you want to be.
While you might be tempted to try to do it all at once, this is actually a huge mistake. Impatience is what feeds you directly to the "get rich quick" wolves.
If the 52-week format prevented you from taking this course in the past, you'll want to reconsider. Jimmy will have you up and running quickly and easily, and then continue to lead you through the steps to make it a super successful venture throughout your first year.
If you've ever tried to set up your own membership site, or just researched the idea, you already know how complicated and frustrating it can be to go it alone. The very thing that might deter you from this course (the time-release format) is actually what will make it work for you.
Membernaire is set up in the exact same format that it teaches you to use, so not only do you get the step-by-step training but you also get a perfect example to go by as well. A smart person would pay close attention to the model in front of them as much as the lessons themselves.
Keep in mind that the first year is spent setting up your membership site and your content in this new format, and basically getting the ball rolling. But after that it will continue to run on autopilot for you for years to come - unlike a traditional membership site which will require your constant input week after week (after week, year after year).
All you'll need to get started is one sales page, one article, an autoresponder and a recurring billing processor - such as ClickBank or PayPal. That's it.
Each lesson is delivered on the same day every week, with a download link to the PDF file for that week. They contain the training and creative ideas to keep you moving forward on the right steps (in the right order), and also include an assignment to complete so that you'll be making tangible progress on your membership site every single week.
No information overload - just one action step after the other to get you started, get your membership site established right away, and seeing results week after week.
Here's a breakdown of the first 10 lessons:
- How to Set Up Your Membership Site in 48 Hours or Less

- 4 simple things to do to manage your site in as little as 2-3 hours a week
Is Membernaire Right For You?
Is Membernaire "newbie safe", is it for semi-advanced Internet Marketers, can you really have a membership site set up in 48 hours or less, how technically complicated is it, will it attract members in a variety of niches? All good questions, and the very things that I set out to determine in my review.
Jimmy states very clearly that: "If you are an experienced online marketer you'll be able to get your Membership Site up and running within 48 hours. If you are a beginner at online marketing, then we'll take the next four lessons to explain thoroughly how to get each of the preliminary steps completed."
Basically if you can choose a niche market, create a web page, set up a paypal button or a ClickBank account, and know how to use an autoresponder... you could literally have your Membership Site set up in the same day. And if you don't know how to do those things, no worries - Jimmy walks you through each step.
It's reasonable to expect people at different skill levels to progress at a different pace. Jimmy takes that into consideration throughout the course, making sure that advanced marketers don't get bored and that complete newbies have all of the details and resources to make steady progress at the same time.
Over the first few weeks you'll learn the entire foundation of setting up a working format. The first lesson includes 10 steps that are broken down in order of action, and you are also given an estimated time of completion. For example, your first step is to choose a market and topic and you're given 60 minutes to complete this step.
Follow Jimmy's action plan and set an egg timer for each step, going through them in methodical order. You'll find that it keeps you incredibly focused on the task at hand, making very obvious progress from one step to the next. It's a no-brainer!
Everyone keeps asking for a "hold my hand, step-by-step blueprint"... and Jimmy has definitely achieved this with Membernaire.
But can a complete newbie do this?
The short answer is YES. The first lesson gives an assignment for both advanced marketers, and for newbies. Over the next few lessons Jimmy gives "beginner baby steps" for completing the 10-point checklist to setting up your Membership Site.
Those initial lessons actually go into great detail to help you come up with a topic & market, including a bonus download where Jimmy actually gives you 20 additional Membership Site ideas. Whether you use one of those ideas yourself or not, the examples really open your eyes for creative ways to use this method to make recurring income in a variety of niches (highly valuable!).
You also get specific instructions on registering a domain name, choosing a web host, updating your nameservers and any other little technical tasks to the process.
The only real requirement to succeeding with Membernaire is your commitment to open and read your lesson each week, and complete the included assignment. If you neglect to do this, no matter your skill level, you'll fail - simply put.
The price is also time-released at $27/month. What you get across several trainings each month is WELL worth 27 dollars. You can cancel anytime, and it’s covered by ClickBank’s 8-week refund period and Jimmy’s personal guarantee. There’s no real risk here, and the price is actually super low.
Most people couldn’t (or wouldn’t) afford a course of this magnitude if they had to pay for the entire course upfront - not to mention the information overload. In later lessons, Jimmy covers:
- How to sell your membership sites for profit
- How to use videocasts, includes idea templates & specific strategy
- Guide to interviewing for content
- Constantly increasing profit potential
- Resources for finding/brainstorming content (loved these!)
- Sets of mindmaps & checklists
- How to become *very* influential with your subscribers
In lesson #42 he gives members a free copy of a $67 product. Just some examples of what all is involved with Membernaire.

p.s. I found Membernaire to be very easy to follow, and chock full of examples and creative ideas. Even if you are a complete newbie and have no clue what type of membership site you would like to start, you'll quickly be able to come up with a topic and have one set up in a matter of weeks!
I also really like the suggested format taught for the actual membership site. Having signed up for Membernaire, which uses the format it teaches, I found that it kept me engaged and kept me opening Jimmy's emails week after week. No other membership site has ever held my attention like that. Period.
