How to Achieve Recurring Revenue

If you already have recurring revenue of some form, then you’re on the right track. If you don’t, there are several ways you can either introduce it or improve your current plan.

Examples of ways to achieve recurring revenue:

  • Introduce/change service plans or client retainer agreements.
  • Split your features into several different plans or packages, rather than just offering one or two.
  • Build a membership program that provides unique content, services, or benefits to customers. This can also help you build an online community for your business and help you create a larger audience.
  • Offer paid online courses.
  • Offer SaaS integrations into your platform, if applicable.
  • Affiliate marketing – Pay third-party publishers to generate more leads and traffic to your business.
  • Offer physical product subscriptions, if applicable.
