5 Ways Subscription Services Are Transforming Businesses
It's no secret that subscription services are growing, from streaming to toilet paper to gym membership. It seems almost anything can become a subscription... and well, in many cases, it can. Subscription services offer businesses guaranteed revenue, they're a great way to offer your business stability and scalability.
But how do they really help?
Subscriptions offer a range of bonuses for customers, they offer convenience and often discounts to customers. Subscriptions are often 'on demand' and in a world where we can get what we want from our fingertips, that's exactly what customers are looking for.
Owning a small business can be financially stressful. Guaranteeing income in some capacity will give you stability and potentially opportunity to scale your business.
With subscriptions often comes loyalty. If you are offering a high quality service or product in your subscription and your customer has been subscribed for some time, the customer loyalty will come naturally. Adding things like referral codes if possible, gifts at key milestones like one year of being subscribed for example, will likely increase customer loyalty too.
Potential to earn more
You already know your customers love your product or service, that's why they're your customer. It's certainly worth considering what else these customers might need or want from your business. Consider cross selling additional items or services, increasing their subscription offering or moving them to a more premium offering. Subscription customers are loyal customers- test the waters.
Having subscription based customers means lower overheads, particularly in your marketing from a retention standpoint. If your customers have been locked into a time based contract, you don't need to re-market your product to any customers that have already made a purchase.
