Recurring revenue models are all the rage these days, and for good reason. You can make a sale once and continue to earn from it as long as you keep your customer happy.
There are quite a few recurring revenue business examples from The Side Hustle Show archives:
- Jonathan Milligan shared how he built his membership site.
- Ryan Cote explained how he set up his SEO business on a monthly subscription basis.
- A few months ago we met Dan Norris from WP Curve, a subscription-based WordPress maintenance and support business.
- And recently, Tyler Zey advised listeners to “focus on recurring revenue as early as possible.”
At its simplest level, recurring revenue comes from solving a recurring problem.
In the realm of physical products, one trend is the subscription box service.
Think of companies like Dollar Shave Club, Trunk Club, Birchbox, Graze, and dozens of others. There’s even BarkBox, which sends new toys and treats to your dog each month.
