As consumer buying habits are trending toward more simple and hassle-free experiences, more and more companies are jumping into the subscription space and seeing incredible growth.
What is subscription?
Subscription services are based on the idea of selling a service to receive monthly or yearly recurring revenue.
The subscription owes its success to the optimal balance of value it provides to both the businesses and the customer.
Benefits for Customers
Convenience and Simplicity – Customers can set up the auto renewal for subscription and never have to remember to make a payment or schedule new appointments. The autopilot removes the thinking out of a purchase decision and provide them reassurance that they will be taken care of.
Know their Budget - Subscriptions offer a flat rate which helps customers stay within their budget by predicting and controlling their spending.
Better Value - Subscriptions usually bring added value to the customer through bundling or getting it all for the price of one.
