Publisher's Summary

The lifeblood of your business is repeat customers. But customers can be fickle, markets shift, and competitors are ruthless. So how do you ensure a steady flow of repeat business? The secret--no matter what industry you're in--is finding and keeping automatic customers. These days virtually anything you need can be purchased through a subscription, with more convenience than ever before. Far beyond Spotify, Netflix, and New York Times subscriptions, you can sign up for weekly or monthly supplies of everything from groceries (AmazonFresh) to cosmetics (Birchbox) to razor blades (Dollar Shave Club).
According to John Warrillow, this emerging subscription economy offers huge opportunities to companies that know how to turn customers into subscribers. Automatic customers are the key to increasing cash flow, igniting growth, and boosting the value of your company.
Whether you want to transform your entire business into a recurring revenue engine or just pick up an extra 5 percent of sales growth, The Automatic Customer will be your secret weapon.

Can be applied to almost any business

The author tells the story of many businesses that use the subscription model as opposed to the fee for performance model.

I recently sold a small CPA practice I started in which I switched to a subscription model (from the traditional time & billing model) about a year before it sold.

The difference is night and day, and had I ready this book back then, it would have been an even more productive switch.

This is a 5-star review for both the subscription model in general and the book itself. A must read for anyone who is or wants to be an entrepreneur.

An inspiring and informative read

Very useful if you're thinking of -- or already have a subscription business. I had to stop listening on multiple occasions to take notes!
