3. You get increased opportunities for upselling, cross-selling and gain value to the customer
A subscription is not only about selling a product on a recurring basis. It’s also about extending the value to a new service or product that you are offering. Like the convenience of having food delivered to your doorstep, having access to special offers as a member of your business membership club, or having a constantly updated service by hand when needed.
4. You get a predictable cashflow

With a well-thought-out subscription offer, you can start counting on predicted income to invest in your company’s growth. Overall, subscriptions can give you a boost in income, scalability, growth, and in growing a loyal and strong customer base.
