When Donna Maria launched IBN in 2000, she immediately knew that she had to use technology to create community — not just within the organization, but also outside of it. Today, she hosts a business podcast, this interactive website, which supports not only Indie Business, the trade organization, but also its members and their communities.

Today, the community that supports you and your business endeavors is just as important — maybe even more important — than the products and services you sell. Whether you want to create a membership-based business model, or you want to create a membership-type of community around your brand, Donna Maria can help you make it happen.

This signature membership management product is designed to help you create and nurture a community of people you can serve and who will organically become the brand evangelists who will help you spread the word about everything you do.

You will learn how to position yourself as community leader, how to use technology to make it fun and easy for people to join your community, how to create podcasts, videos and other media designed to cater specifically to your community, and so much more. dM will show you exactly what to do, and you and dM spend 6 months together doing it, and then you will take it from there. By then, you'll be prepared to grow and expand on your own!

Most of all, you'll learn how to do these things to support a strong business model that is positioned to make money.

You'll begin with a consultation to discuss your business and your community goals. After an initial consultation, dM customizes a program that is manageable for you based on your goals, the time you have, your budget, and other factors unique to you. At the end of 6 months, you'll have everything you need to manage a community of people who are as excited about your products as you are. (Note: it takes a massive investment of time to create a community like the one I am describing.

After talking with dM once, many people decide they just don't want to put in the effort. That's understandable, albeit unfortunate. For this reason, if after the initial consultation, where I will answer your initial questions and give you the low down on community management, you decide not to continue, you'll receive a full refund, less $150 for the consultation.)
