Fox's Hierarchy of Needs...

Start here
and work down

They need one thing: Pay you by the hour
They need something done: Pay you by the job
They need something created: Pay you by the value
They need something you created ongoing: Pay you reoccurring
They need to create using something you created: Pay you passively
They need to sell something they created using what you created: Pay for your network/platform​

Where are you guys at with your services or products?

I have created something that people need and I am now trying to move that into reoccurring revenue also.

I decided to hold off being a copywriter. I'm not in my 50's yet. So... I don't want to be seen as a "guru".

Back to the drawing board?

Making the mental move from pay by the job to pay by the value is tough for me, but determined to get there.

Where are you guys at with your services or products?

I have created something that people need and I am now trying to move that into reoccurring revenue also.

I am having a big internal debate at the moment.

The past 6 months I've spent building an awesome product/brand with the angle of going customer direct through ecommerce (which is not being done in this niche).

However, the reccuring revenue for high-end non-consumable physical products is in selling to brick and mortars.

I think recurring revenue is what is going to give a business more value when it comes time for an exit, which is why I've been thinking about it a lot more lately.

Have you read Built to Sell? It's a quick narrative about a creative agency that streamlines it's product offering and gets into a recurring revenue model.

I've been thinking of this for my business as well.

Better margins in direct to consumer via e-comm but finding partners who can just "move" the product regularly in their stores provides a much better, more reliable stream.

Have you read Built to Sell?

I'll be picking this up tomorrow. Thanks :)

That's true, however your products are a bit consumable in nature, and I think the potential of picking up an increased lifetime value of customer is possible than maybe more than the average product. B&M Stores would just be another traffic source for you.

And I think you considered it at one point, but you could always re-visit the subscription model, and see if it fits with what you want for the business.

For products like mine, that are a "one and done" purchase, making the B&M store my customer, is really the only way to generate recurring revenue.
