    Companies like LinkedIn, Amazon and Salesforce have created forever transactions with their customers by incorporating subscription pricing and community connections into their business models.

Expectations are high, and competition is fierce to win the engagement and loyalty. Robbie Kellman Baxter, a leading subscription and membership business model expert, will share how your business can take advantage of this trend, building “Forever Transactions” with every subscriber.

    At the beginning of the membership economy, few saw the viability of this new business model since it depended in large part on the loyalty of users and the volume of recurring consumers. At present, only a few large companies do not plan to implement a subscription model in any of their business areas. At this conference, the co-founder of Peninsula Strategies, one of the leading consulting firms in subscription models, Robbie Kellman Baxter, will explain how the economy of membership and subscription models have changed the current market and how companies adapt it to their products and their markets in order to stay in the fight against their competitors.

    Most companies see only the subscription models as something to implement to stay in the market and offer the same possibilities as their competitors but there are much more than subscriptions in these models. Subscription models are successful when customers do not leave the community and their quantity reaches a minimum to cover expenses and amortization of development, but to achieve this it is not enough to do it well, the performance must be excellent. In this conference the strategic consulting expert Robbie Kellman Baxter who has helped companies such as Netflix, Oracle or Electronic Arts in their models will explain how these companies have worked on their loyalty and community building strategies, gathering good practices and advice for the audience.
