How To Create A Successful Long-Term Business With Online Courses & Membership Sites Using Recurring Subscriptions
SubscribeMe.fm is THE podcast that teaches you all about about creating a highly profitable, long-term business with online courses & membership sites with recurring subscriptions.
In this podcast, and I don’t mean just this episode, but the entire series, I’m going to be talking about how you can build a successful business by creating subscription-based products and services that bring in recurring income month after month… where you don’t have to go hunting for new customers all the time, where you can focus on creating a remarkable product – like Seth Godin would say – A product that your customers love, where they keep paying you to keep delivering your product or service, and where you get to actually focus on your remarkable product – and improving it and adding to it over time, and you get to focus on, quote unquote “Enchanting” your customers, like Guy Kawasaki would say.
