Striving for Recurring Revenue

Give them the razor, sell them the blade

Gillette may not have been the first, but it’s still the most famous example of a company moving to a Recurring Revenue model. The story goes like this: a razor marketer gave away razors to the public for free, knowing they could recoup the one-time cost of the razor over a period of time with custom fit replacement blades that would be sold on an ongoing basis at a premium. The rest, as they say is history.

What’s Your ROMI?
In 2009, an Israeli data analytics company placed cameras above a professional basketball court. They measured and observed the movements of every player for a season and analyzed the results.

The first team to embrace those analytics was the Dallas Mavericks...and they won the championship the same year.

The CEO & the CRM

By Aaron Ayer – CEO The Hunley Group – Partner of Mayfield Consulting

A Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system is a necessary and exciting sales productivity tool for any CEO. It is a leading indicator of how your business will perform: you can see selling activity, which leads to pipeline growth, which leads to better sales forecasting, which leads to actual sales.

Frequently my clients ask this question and I understand their hesitation. Tweeting feels like an episode of cyber schizophrenia: when you tweet and nothing comes back, you start to wonder if your audience is perhaps an imaginary friend.
