I don't have any experience with the S2 Member Framework, thus cannot give feedback on that.
As for the members' only area to boost sign ups, the idea has merit but putting it in motion would take considerable planning and effort. I think you should concentrate on getting a subscriber list going, all the while creating content for your members only site.
I'm thinking that maybe you can offer this membership deal to subscribers that do not unsubscribe after a certain period of time. Another option is to offer the membership deal instead of a free eBook.
