Selling subscriptions

Are you a magazine or newspaper publisher? A SaaS (software as a service) provider? A nonprofit asking people to pledge periodic donations?

Then you might want to consider forecasting your sales (or part of your sales) with a subscription, or churn-rate, model. This kind of sales forecast allows you to make projections that take into account ongoing revenue, new customers, and cancellations.

Both Business Plan Pro and Marketing Plan Pro have a special add-in sales forecast for handling subscription sales. To access this feature:

First, download it from our website

  1. Make sure you have a working Internet connection open
  2. Open your business or marketing plan in your Palo Alto software program
  3. On the Tools menu, click Add-ins
  4. (Note: your serial number should automatically load in the web page. If it doesn’t, you can find it by clicking About in the Help menu)
  5. Scroll down the list until you find Sales Forecast-Subscription (Churn Rate) Model
  6. Click Download Component
  7. If prompted to Find a program or Save the file, click Save. Then browse to a location where you want to save it, such as your Desktop.

Then, import it into your plan

  1. Return to your plan software
  2. On the File menu, click Import
  3. Choose Import an Add-In, and click Next
  4. Browse to the location where you saved the downloaded file
  5. Highlight the downloaded file name and click Open, then click Next
  6. Click Finish

The new subscription model sales forecast will open for you to see and work with. Instructions above the spreadsheet get you started. You can also click Search on the Help menu, and search for “subscription” to find more information.

Finally, link it to your tables
The Subscription forecast currently exists in your plan as a stand-alone table. It doesn’t replace your regular Sales Forecast table, and doesn’t feed into your plan’s financial data. To make your subscription forecast part of your financial plan, you can build a link in the main Sales Forecast table to the “Total Sales” row of the Subscription Model sales forecast.

I hardly leave responses, but i did a few searching and wound up here Selling subscriptions – Dead-Simple Software.
And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you
don’t mind. Is it simply me or does it give the impression like
a few of these remarks look like they are left by brain dead visitors?

:-P And, if you are writing on other online social
sites, I’d like to follow everything fresh you have to post.
Could you make a list of all of all your shared
sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but
I find this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand.
It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post,
I will try to get the hang of it!

This will get you traffic to your site and make money.
However Yahoo marketing and other pay per
click search engines offer some excellent traffic at
a more reasonable price. Daily, even hourly, businesses can see how many individuals clicked on their ads and the traffic that is being driven to their website.

Есть такая услуга – добровольное медицинское обслуживание .
Она предполагает, что вы вносите небольшую сумму за абонемент и посещает врачей весь год не платя за каждый прием.
Однако опросы показали, что лишь 5% жителей Санкт-Петербурга знают о такой программе.
По какой причине?
Потому что клиникам выгоднее сдирать с людей деньги за каждый визит.
А если честный врач попытается рассказать про добровольное медицинское обслуживание клиенту – это сулит ему увольнением.
Эта информация уже вызвала множество возмущений, после того как информацию об услуге рассекретил один врач.
Его уволили , после того, как он предложил ДМО своему пациенту.
Самое страшное, что информация по ДМО находятся в открытом доступе, просто натыкались на эту информацию единицы.
Как отстоять свои права?
О правилах предоставления услуги и обязанностях клиник можно узнать, сделав запрос в Яндексе: “добровольное медицинское обслуживание”.
Именно обслуживание, а не страхование.
