Thanks from Jonathan
How often are your materials going to change? Will you be continuously updating and adding information, or will it be fairly static content?
From my experience it's best to do a membership type (pay-for-access) when the content changes often enough so that your customers stay members of the site.
In this instance you can also afford to lower your sign up price to make it more appealing, since you have a good chance of keeping cutsomers from month to month and sometimes getting more than you originally forecasted.
You can also do a one-time fee for access, which would be about the same as selling an e-book like you had mentioned.
In regard to the "how to" portion of your question, shoot me an email or PM and I can give some suggestions.
