Description

Companies like Netflix, Spotify, and Salesforce are just the tip of the iceberg for the subscription model. The real transformation - and the real opportunity - is just beginning. 

Subscription companies are growing nine times faster than the S&P 500. Why? Because unlike product companies, subscription companies know their customers. A happy subscriber base is the ultimate economic moat. 

Today's consumers prefer the advantages of access over the hassles of maintenance, from transportation (Uber, Surf Air), to clothing (Stitch Fix, Eleven James), to razor blades and makeup (Dollar Shave Club, Birchbox). Companies are similarly demanding easier, long-term solutions, trading their server rooms for cloud storage solutions like Box. Simply put, the world is shifting from products to services. 

But how do you turn customers into subscribers? As the CEO of the world's largest subscription management platform, Tien Tzuo has helped hundreds of companies transition from relying on individual sales to building customer-centric, recurring-revenue businesses. His core message in Subscribed is simple: Ready or not, excited or terrified, you need to adapt to the Subscription Economy - or risk being left behind. 

Tzuo shows how to use subscriptions to build lucrative, ongoing one-on-one relationships with your customers. This may require reinventing substantial parts of your company, from your accounting practices to your entire IT architecture, but the payoff can be enormous. Just look at the case studies: 

  • Adobe transitions from selling enterprise software licenses to offering cloud-based solutions for a flat monthly fee, and quadruples its valuation. 
  • Fender evolves from selling guitars one at a time to creating lifelong musicians by teaching beginners to play, and keeping them inspired for life. 
  • Caterpillar uses subscriptions to help solve problems - it's not about how many tractors you can rent, but how much dirt you need to move.

In Subscribed, you'll learn how these companies made the shift, and how you can transform your own product into a valuable service with a practical, step-by-step framework. Find out how how you can prepare and prosper now, rather than trying to catch up later. 

Includes a bonus PDF with charts, images, and graphs.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Superficiel dans le traitement

Le sujet de fond est juste, mais traité ici de manière superficielle, sans vous aider à comprendre les mécanismes de l'abonnement. Le livre donne le sentiment d'être un publi-redaction pour zuora

Just okay

Okay book describing history of recent technology developments. But quite boring unless you spent the last 5 years in a cave (and haven’t heard about Uber or Netflix - for each of them there is almost a whole chapter)

Delivers on 1/2 of its Subtitle

So this book has a subtitle that reads "Why the Subscription Model Will Be Your Company's Future - and What to Do About It" About 5 hours is regarding the 1st part of this subtitile. The author presents overviews on some of the bigger companies that have been game changers in the subscription field (Netflix, Amazon, Adobe), but doesn't focus much on the details. The audio feels like a textbook, and I found my mind wandering quite a bit wondering when it would get to the good stuff. The good stuff, to me, is the application of the subscription model to your own business, which is what the 2nd half of the subtitle promises to deliver. It was an empty promise, there was nothing actionable for a business owner to use to transition to the subscription model. I was hoping the author would at least recommend some software tools, but alas, it was an empty promise. If you want an overview of the more obvious cases where big companies implemented the subscription model, give this a listen. If you want the HOW to implement the subscription model to your own company, keep looking. I know I will.

Subscribed to get Subscribed

It was not lost on me that I subscribed to Audible to enjoy the book that tells me all about the new subscription economy. My VP told me about the book and it did not disappoint. Yeah it has some dry spots and at times slips into repetition but that only occurs to emphasize key points or provide the underpinnings of salient points. Overall excellent content and performance. I am glad that I finished it in two days because I can’t afford another late night plugged in to the great stories, examples, and references. You always know you’ve gained from a good book when you have learned much more than the subject matter but also some great things you didn’t know. Thanks to author, performer, the team behind this! Job well done. I now have to find a reason to excavate with drones; subscribe and not lease my next car; and perhaps subscribed to an automated mower to cut my lawn. All of this is less than my approach currently. While I always knew traditional product first sucked. The examples, financial model, and framework make this very real and actionable. Not to mention the years I save now that I don’t have to go to B-school.

8.5/10. Pretty good book.

Pretty good book, with a legitimate premise. Really curious to see how the Subscription economy grows in the future, and how much value Zuora captures.

A fast food version of a book.

If you are a believer in the adage: “The old rules don’t apply...” then by all means, this book is for you. If you are a skeptic and view the world through a complex lens, you may find this book to be the literary equivalent of fast food. Tasty & initially satisfying, but in the final analysis, closer to Kool Aid than red wine. The examples used to support the various premises could have many reasons for success or failure. In many cases, those have become known after the publishing of Subscribed. Thus the justifications for some points falls apart. This doesn’t eliminate the insight and perspectives presented in the book, but it does bring into question the certainty with which the authors arguments are presented. Still, it’s worth a read.

Excellent data driven primer for subscriptions

Great read for learning the reasons behind the move to the subscription business model and best practices for implementing one.
