The answers are NOT always so EASY, even to a professional print or electronic publisher. The sources used to generate membership website subscriptions are very different from those used to generate print subscriptions...
1.) Research Your Target Market...
Target to a specific group of interests who share very specific information needs, and are willing to pay a premium price for that information monthly and or annually. Do your research to find out what type of information people are willing to pay for.
2.) Prepare a Detailed Membership Website Content Plan...
Outline your content in as much detail as possible and make sure you have enough content to publish new information ongoing. You want to publish information that is hard to find and or in demand.
3.) Prepare A Detailed Competitive Market Analysis.
Search for competitive sites, request sample copies or purchase competitive publications, request media kits (which often contain tons of information about the market) and understand advertising and subscription pricing policies for your competition. This can help you to determine price points for your own membership fee with little effort.

Trying to Define Web 2.0
Web 1.0 Is So Last Year; Interaction, Multimedia Push Internet Forward - By BETH SNYDER BULIK
Published: July 10, 2006
YORK, Pa. (AdAge.com) -- Maybe the ultimate insult in the online world today is to be described as a Web 1.0 company. The so-called second wave of the internet revolution is all about Web 2.0. Sporting names such as Webaroo, Flickr, Trulia and Ning, the current crop of websites labeled Web 2.0 claim next-generation status.
While there is much debate-mostly within tech circles-there are a few things most pundits agree on. Web 2.0 companies are interactive. They invite consumer-generated comments and content, unlike Web 1.0 companies, which publish mostly read-only content.
"The trends that are captured by the concept of Web 2.0 are extremely valuable, like user participation and social media," said Greg Sterling, analyst with Sterling Market Intelligence. "[But] the term is not meaningful to the consumer at all. Where Web 2.0 has meaning is in the venture-capital community, because it's a buzzword. And also, in the insider world of the net, people know it conveys a sort of sense of cool or forward-looking company."

25 Ways to Add Quality Content to Your Web Site....
By Robin Nobles - July 05, 2006
We've known for a long time that quality matters to Google. In a post Senior Google Engineer Matt Cutts made to his blog, "quality" was mentioned several times as being important to Google. Quality matters when it comes to content, and it matters when it comes to links.
However, building content and links doesn't have to be painful. Web site owners tend to think of content in a very limited way.
So, let's open up our creative minds and think of all sorts of ways of adding quality content to a Web site.
A few things to remember:

Learn About Google Trends
With Google Trends, you can compare the world's interest in your favorite topics.
Enter up to five topics and see how often they've been searched for on Google over time. Google Trends also displays how frequently your topics have appeared in Google News stories, and which geographic regions have searched for them most often.
So How does Google Trends work?
Google Trends analyzes a portion of googol web searches to compute how many searches have been done for the terms you enter relative to the total number of searches done on Google over time. We then show you a graph with the results -- our search-volume graph -- plotted on a linear scale.
Located just beneath our search-volume graph is our news-reference-volume graph. This graph shows you the number of times your topic appeared in Google News stories. When Google Trends detects a spike in the volume of news stories for a particular term, it labels the graph and displays the headline of an automatically selected Google News story written near the time of that spike. Currently, only English-language headlines are displayed, but we hope to support non-English headlines in the future.Below the search and news volume graphs, Google Trends displays the top cities, regions, and languages for the first term you entered.
