Welcome to episode #27 of the SubscribeMe show from SubscribeMe.fm.
I’m your host Ravi Jayagopal. This is the podcast to listen to, if you want to learn about creating digital content, marketing it, selling it, and then delivering it.
I am the co-founder & co-developer of DigitalAccessPass.com, easily the best membership plugin in the industry, fondly known as DAP.
Membership Model #4: Recurring Subscriptions with Lifetime Recurring
Basically, they pay until they cancel. It’s obviously easy to do this if it’s a SaaS product – SaaS stands for Software As A Service. Like Leadpages, or Dropbox. Even at DigitalAccessPass.com, we offer a pseudo-SAAS model. DAP is basically a WordPress plugin that you install on your own site, but we packaged a lot of things into a saas like offering, where you get DAP, you get set up help, ongoing monthly support, a whole bunch of plugins from WickedCoolPlugins.com, and we made it a monthly subscription. So in this model, you get the benefits for as long as you pay. And when you stop paying, you lose all of the benefits. Like your gym membership. Or phone service.
Now, you might wonder, what if you have a regular online course? How to make it a perpetual subscription?
Listen to the show for the rest of the content.
Don’t forget to check out episodes 24 and 25 where I talk about how to brainstorm content-creation ideas, whether it is for content for your membership site, or content that you can use for marketing. You can find those episodes at SubscribeMe.fm/24/ and SubscribeMe.fm/25/.
