Add Recurring Income To Your Online Business

add recurring income to your online businessWhen you add recurring income to your online business, you can spend more time delivering value to your customers, and less time hunting for them.

That’s because recurring income means that people sign up once for something, and then make automatic payments each month.

If people are paying you each month for something, then you can add a nice profit stream to your business without always struggling to come with something new.

Now, I won’t go into the whole theory as to why recurring income is such a strong business model, because I did that recently in Who Doesn’t Want Recurring Income?

In that article, I talked about a specific type of business model that I’d soon be exploring, called “subscription-based e-commerce sites.”

You can read all about them in that article.

I also mentioned that I would be “investigating, and reporting back to you in the near future” about this particular program.

So, here it is, short and sweet.

I’ll Be Setting Up My Own Recurring Income Business via e-Commerce

Now, I’m no pro at this.

In fact, this will be a first time experience for me.

But I’m not going to be doing it with my eyes closed.

I have a good friend and associate who is an allstar pro at this.

He’ll be taking me by the hand on this, and I, in turn will be taking you by the hand if you’d like to follow along.

As I set up my business, I’ll document each thing I do.

I’ll show you where I’m locating my best contacts and sources, what my process is for putting together offers, and where I’m turning to get traffic.

I’ll show you the mistakes I make, and you know I’ll shout out my successes 🙂

In other words, you will get to track my actions in real time, to see exactly how this business works.

But first, let me ask you this…

Would You Like To Add Recurring Income To Your Online Business?

If you say “no” then this is not something you will be interested in.

If you answered “yes” though, this is going to be an unusual opportunity for you to mimic my steps as I walk you through the business.

When you have questions, or get stuck, you can ask for my help.

I may not know all the answers, but I know where to turn to get them… hehe

Bottom line, you’ll have someone on your side helping you to navigate through this, because I have someone on  my side helping me.

I’m not here to tell you that you need a new source of recurring income.

That’s your decision.

It’s your business, and now is time to make an important business decision.

If you’re ready to give this your undivided attention for a while, you just might be what you need to get your business in order in 2016.

Let’s do a quick Q&A to get some of your key questions answered (before you ask them, haha).

Donna, How Many Times Do You Do This Sort Of Thing?

If you’re a regular visitor to my blog, I think you know the answer to this.

I’ve never done it before.

I’ve never picked up a business model that I know nothing about… zero… and offered to take some folks through the process of setting it up.

I’ve never done it before because I wouldn’t know where to begin.

But because I’m getting some real top quality guidance on this, I think it will be a lot of fun, and I know we’ll all learn a lot from it.

Do You Guarantee This Will Work?

I guarantee absolutely nothing.

Take that for a deal closer 🙂

I have no idea how this will turn out.

But I’m excited to see it through and really put it to the test.

I don’t know if you’ll establish a recurring income stream through your efforts or not.

I don’t know if you’ll make a real effort or not.

I don’t even know what my results will be, obviously.

But I am committed to making a total effort.

I’m an entrepreneur.

This is part of what I do.

When I see something that looks really good, and really under the radar (meaning that very few people even know about this)… I like to give it my best effort.

Not only for myself.

Since I’m coaching and teaching people all the time about how to build an online business, this would be a wonderful thing to add to my coaching arsenal.

I already show them how to build recurring income through other means.

But this will be something new.

Unfortunately, none of this is a guarantee of the results you or I will actually have.

Nobody can guarantee that.

What Do I Need To Know or Learn?

For this specific project, I’ll be using my friend’s special system.

Here’s what he says about it:

The secret is in my system.

It’s a system that will work for you, not against you, even if you have:

No experience

No tech or web site skills

No product

Limited startup cash

No mailing list

ANYONE who can gain access to the internet CAN replicate this system and create job replacing income.

How Do I Get Started, Donna?

Step 1.

To be part of my merry band of followers on this great adventure, you need to purchase the training from my affiliate link.

DETAILS HERE

The training is 4 hours worth of videos that show you exactly how to set up, run and profit from these special subscription websites.

Current cost for the training is under $30 (at the time of this posting), but it will be going up.

This is essential because you can’t understand how to actually implement this business without it.

Step 2.

Subscribe to the Special Team I’m putting together by clicking on this button:

Join My FREE Ecom Subscription Pro Team

Step 3.

Watch for my emails.

It costs nothing to sign up and get my “over the shoulder” training as I set this up in real time.

Eventually, I expect to develop this into a paid mastermind group, but if you sign up now… you’ll get in for free.

So, one more time, start here:

Your Key To Recurring Income

Hey, I’m really looking forward to this.

It is definitely not for everyone, but it might be just what YOU have been looking for.

I know this is not a topic I’m typically talking about.

And I don’t intend to talk much more about it on my blog, either, since it’s not something all my readers will want to learn about.

If you’d still like to learn more about it, I’ll be giving some very basic information about it inside the Free VIP Club.

But the in-depth training will be done exclusively via my special email list that I just told you about.

So, how about it?

Are you a blogger?

Network marketer?

Affiliate marketer?

Do you want to add recurring income to your online business?

I’d love to hear from you on this.

    Hi Donna!

    That’s awesome that you’re inviting everyone to hop on board with you and follow along as you go through it yourself. I’ve got to commend you for your openness but I’ve always known you’re one of the most authentic bloggers out there anyway.

    I’ve always loved the recurring model and my membership site income has quickly become one of my favorite income streams. It’s too early to really tell how long the average person will stay signed up, but as we’ve discussed previously new signups should outpace unsubscribes, so having a source of income that is not only consistent, but grows over time, is fantastic. There are so many benefits to the recurring income model so I hope to see many people hop on this opportunity to learn with you.

    Wishing you the best of success in this project and no doubt your own experiences working through this will help many others achieve success as well!

      Hi James,

      Good to see you jumping out here right away… early bird 🙂

      My plan is for people to see this for “what it is.” I’m not trying to hype it or “sell” it to folks, but to offer it as a real opportunity to see what it’s all about.

      As a real estate investor, I am always mystified that people list a house for sale with the contingency clause ‘as is.” What?

      I mean, as a buyer, you know that everything you buy is “as is.” There’s no perfect house, no perfect marketing program and no perfect method for building recurring income. But really, how many houses do we need to live comfortably? How many recurring income streams do we need to quit the day job, live the life of our dreams or whatever other cliche we want to attach to it?

      It’s gonna be a trip 🙂

      PS: about your membership site. Q. How long will people stay? A. As long as their lives are being improved by being there. Do it!

    How generous of you to create this wonderful opportunity Donna! I’ve learned from “experts” and I’ve learned from others on similar journeys and I have to say I prefer the later. When I first began blogging I joined a membership community and the leader was so inspirational and transparent I really loved the whole experience. In fact I’m still on his list and occasionally take his courses so it’s a great way to build relationships as well. I’m sure it will be great experience!

      HI Marquita,

      This is the first (maybe last, haha) time I’ll be doing a live walk through of a project in this way.

      I’m excited to see how it develops, and I think people will really learn a lot from the process alone, to say nothing of the results we can generate.

      And like you say, it gives me a chance to get to know some folks a little better and vice versa, too… you know I love that ::))

    Hi Donna,

    I love that you’re willing to admit to doing something new – and take us on the journey with you.

    It isn’t often that you see someone start something for the first time and get to observe the process before any of the results take place.

    The fact that you’re willing to test things out while bringing us along with you says a lot about your faith in yourself as an entrepreneur. I find it refreshing.

    I’m looking forward to seeing how this turns out.

    Hey Donna,
    Though my hands are full now, this is someone I’m interested in doing. Setting up a recurring income source is best; either setting up your business or promoting an affiliate program that pays recurring commissions.

    I just checked your affiliate link but got the error “This webpage is not available”

    I refreshed a couple of times but still not hope. I’ll keep trying however

    Hey Donna,

    That’s the way it should be done. Dive in, learn how to do it and then teach others how as well.

    I’ve often wondered what’s involved to put up an e-commerce site but I’m not sure if this is something I can bring on at the moment. Granted, having another income stream would be fabulous but I don’t know how much work is involved and with everything I have going I’m not sure if I actually have the time but I’m definitely intrigued.

    So the secret is in the system huh! Does that mean that once it’s up and running that all that’s left is really just promoting it? You’ve got me curious that’s for sure Donna. Might have to chat with you a little more about this my dear. 😉

    Thanks for sharing this with us and I’m excited for you. I’m sure you are as well because we all know that having difference sources of income is really the best way to go. Yep, I’m intrigued!

      But sure… driving traffic is always a key part of any online business whether it’s a blog or an e-commerce site or whatever. So we’ll be developing key methods to do that.

      Nice that you’re intrigued, and of course… chat anytime 🙂

    Hi Donna

    By offering this product you actually solved one of the biggest problems of most of the bloggers that is called multi-role problem.

    A blogger has to play multiple roles of content writing, SEO, SMO and montizing campaign. As a whole he has to work for manufacturing of both promotional stuff (contents) and premium contents (products) and also to work for marketing of his both types of products.

    So while doing so many tasks at a time he hardly does justice with all of them and good performance in one task gets offset by a little lower performance in another task because no one could be master of all trades.

    But the idea you introduced here by securing regular income stream and then focusing more on quality of products and serving the customer could be a new era of doing subscribers based ecommerce. You deserve a great applause for this.

    Many thanks for sharing and I am sure it will get a huge success.

      Hi Mi Muba,

      Thanks so much for you kinds words, and or course, your keen insights.

      You’re really summarized the struggle that so many bloggers have. They need to product content… no small task at all. Simultaneously they have to promote it, convert traffic, build engagement with customers, clients… then do it all over again and again. They get worn thin because if they do too much of this, they drop the ball on that… etc.

      Juggling is tough and a solid recurring income can make it all so much easier, and allow you to “scale down” your business model to do less and enjoy more. Yes??

      Love the way you put this. Thanks.

    Hi Donna,

    Informative post indeed, and I am loving your new venture 🙂

    This is absolutely true. If you’re financially well-off and your job or work pays you enough, you can devote more time in creative and constructive tasks with a free mind.

    I thought having a membership site was the best way to earn recurring income, where the same person pays you every month and without you having to go after them.

    But I’m curious to know about your new experiment with a brand new business model – an e-com business. Recurring income is what saves your boat from sinking so I’d definitely wait to see the results. So, how long will it take you to set the system, start getting results, and then eventually making profits?

    Thanks for sharing it all with us. Have a nice week ahead 🙂

      Hi Harleena,

      You are absolutely right, that the membership site model may be THE best way to build a recurring income. I’ve had a membership site for over a year now, and have just upgraded it, and I teach the method to my students, and I even set up membership sites for people.

      But it’s not for everybody.

      It requires a different set of tools, skill sets and knowledge than an e-commerce site does.

      Not everybody has an expertise in something to run a membership site where they take the lead, develop new materials on a consistent basis, and work individually with members to achieve a set goal.

      An e-commerce site is not better or worse than a membership site as a business model… it’s just different. Because I coach people to build a successful online business, I personally like to get involved in and explore all the options I can.

      That gives me a chance to help more people improve their lives in ways that are right for them.

      We’ll see how this develops 🙂

    “Shiny objects” are not good or bad in and of themselves. If they distract you from the path you’re on, then they may have great value and integrity, but not be the right thing for you at any given moment.

    This little venture I’m taking is exploratory. Got my Sherlock Holmes hat on and my little magnifying glass in hand … hehe

    I’m simply allowing others to explore along with me, and over my shoulder as I work through it in greater detail. I’m not sure where it will lead, but I know that it will require focus and dedication. It’s not just going to happen on it’s own. I’ll have to put some focused energy into it.

    I’m ready to do that at this time, for myself and anyone who’d like to join in the fun. yaayyy

    Because of your transparency, I’ve entered my email address to learn more about this.

    I’ll be glad to learn more about this with you.

    Some questions:

    your affiliate link for the program will be live after Feb 5? or you have it right now?

    From your stand if this program will work for me too?
    if i don’t have a list yet;
    my blog is not set for e-commerce yet and
    I have no experience with landing page.

    appreciate if you can response to me

      Hi Stella,

      I haven’t seen the program yet. It’s not available to anybody until Feb. 5. That said, I’ve had several conversations with the creator and I think that anybody can expect to operate this program as long as they have a computer.

      On Feb 5 you can click the link in this post and it will go to the sales page instead of the “sign up for the waiting list” page. You can also email me and tell me you want in and I’ll send you an email reminder on the 5th..

      When you see the sales presentation (I”ve already seen it behind the scenes), then you should judge for yourself.

      No pressure from me, you’re the only one who can decide if this is something you want to put your focus on at this point in your journey.

      That said… would love to have you on board, girl 🙂

    You’re right in that there are no guarantees this will work for us. You can give us all the tools we need and we can mimic you to the “t” but if we don’t put the effort, nothing will happen and we can’t blame anyone but ourselves.

    Thanks so much for offering to guide us and share what you’re doing. I signed up but I didn’t see a link to purchase the training. I hope I get to purchase it at the current price before it goes up, hehe. 🙂

    I can’t wait to get started!

      Hi Cori,

      To answer your question, you cannot buy the program until in launches on Feb. 5. I set this up in advance because you can get on the waiting list in the meanwhile via the affiliate link I put up in this article. You can also email me so I can get you on my private list for my “over the shoulder” private group.

      The price I told you will be good ON the 5th, but I’m pretty sure it will go up the next day, and each day after for a while.

      That’s the nuts and bolts as of today (Jan. 27).

      I know the guy who created this. He’s not a well known name unless you’re a product creator, but believe me… he is THE real deal. Knows his stuff and has been doing this program for years now.

      So, it’s certainly worth my time to get involved in this, and I wanted to give the heads up to all my great friends out here…and that, my dear, includes you of course 🙂

    Hey Donna,

    This is an excellent idea!

    I really like the fact that you’re showing us your journey with the ecommerce business model. It’s almost as if it’s an ecommerce reality TV show.

    But this would be something I would be interested in. I believe the majority of us want recurring income, and adding a new stream would be more than welcome.

    I look forward to following your journey with this business model! I will keep my eyes open for your successes.

    Thanks for sharing Donna! Have a good one!

      Hi Sherman,

      I like that… “ecommerce reality TV show” haha

      Well, it will be fun. And I’m sure people will learn a few things from this.

      I’m really looking forward to it.

      See you there 🙂

    Hi Donna,

    Recurring income is absolutely where it’s at. Making big sales is fantastic but I know that I’d much rather have a steady, smaller amount that i know will be coming in regularly than having to wait and wonder when the next big sale might just happen to occur!

    E-commerce isn’t something I’m looking at considering any time soon myself, but I’m certainly looking forward to seeing how you progress with this and the results you get. I shall look out for your updates!

    I hope you’re well, Donna. All the best with this latest venture! 🙂

      Hi Glenn,

      Yes, you make a good point that smaller, steady income is much better for most of us. It’s not easy to scratch and claw to get your “next big sale.”

      I’ve heard an awful lot over the last 6 months about “high-ticket” items, and how that’s the key to building your business. I know a very big guru out there is essentially creating one after another, and then unleashing a team of high-commission sales reps (I think he calls them consultants or something like that)… they sell them to get their high commissions. That’s okay, except that so many of these high-ticket items are priced way way over their real value.

      I agree with you, it’s more important to have a smaller, steady income from recurring income models. That builds a strong foundation for your business. You can always scale it up to a larger, steady income 🙂

    Hi Donna,

    Intriguing says it mildly….Long day today, I signed up on the email to see over your
    shoulder. .

    Monthly income would be great.
    I did remember correctly that it isn’t
    e commerce sites?

    Like Amazon pages on your WordPress site?

    I have one of my sites (don’t know how it happened) the rss feed is listed on Amazon for a
    whole big 99 cents a month. Think through Kindle.

    No takers so far!

    If they are still doing it.

    Later, way past bedtime.

      Hi Cararta,

      Glad to have you aboard on this project.

      Many questions from everyone, and I have them, too 🙂

      We will be finding out soon enough what’s behind “the system”. I think it will be very interesting for many people, hopefully you included 🙂

    Hey Donna,
    Sounds like a great idea. I would love to be a part of this but I’m just not sure I can considering my situation at home.

    I will keep an eye on this. I definitely need recurring income.

    Hi Monna,

    I understand that you can only do so many things at any one time.

    If you’ve got other commitments, then you’ll have to give them your priority, of course.

    Hope all goes well, and check in from time to time to see what’s happening with all this 🙂

    Nice to hear from you.

    Hi Donna,

    Uh, you had me at ‘you can spend more time delivering value to your customers, and less time hunting for them’.

    Seriously though, I did do both step 1 & step 2. (step 1 isn’t yet available, but I added my email addy to your list). And, I’m looking forward to learning something new, as well.

    BTW, really liked you admitting that you don’t know everything, but you do know who to ask for the answer…

    Kinda the same thing brilliant businessman Henry Ford told some smartmouth congressman when he (Henry) was accused of being illiterate.

      Hi Ed,

      Nice to see you aboard, and I’m sure this will be an interesting experience for everyone who takes part.

      I like the Henry Ford story, he’s one of my favorites. I always use his quote that “whether you think you can, or you think you can’t… you’re right”… or something like that.

      Hi Lillian,

      Don’t you love new adventures? I do. I always learn something more about running an online business, and it always helps me be a better coach for my clients. That’s a lot of the reason I get involved in so many different things.

      I will say, though, that this is one of the most intriguing ones I’ve seen for a long time. I’ll be speaking with the guy who created this tomorrow, and will get a bit deeper into the process.

    Hi Donna!

    Great post. I love that you’re willing to admit to doing something new. This is absolutely true. If you’re financially well-off and your job or work pays you enough, you can devote more time in creative and constructive tasks with a free mind.
    Great info you’re sharing with your reads.
    Thank You. Have a Great Week ahead. 🙂

      Hi Mansi,

      Thanks for stopping by today and jumping into the conversation.

      It’s true, a system like this can definitely act as something marketers call a “funded proposal”… a method for pulling in working capital to use for more creative aspects of building your online business.

    Hi Donna,

    Absolutely incredible! Count me in as wanting your direction. This is something I’ve been thinking about for a while now and really want to do.

    What I’m thinking about doing is an inexpensive video series that goes into detail about discovering the “Business You are ‘Really’ In”. If one needs help beyond that then I can offer the 1-on-1 coaching service.

    In theory, it sounds like a great place to start.

    I’m so excited for you and would love to chat, if for no other reason than just to say “hi” and catch up. I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since we spoke on the phone last.

    I hope you’re feeling well and are getting back up on your feet.

    Have a great week Donna!

    Hi Don,

    I’m feeling a bit stronger all the time. Thanks for asking.

    I like your idea for a video series, something that will be helpful to many folks I’m sure.

    Glad to have you peeking in on this project, it’s going to be an exciting journey, and an opportunity to see a pat of internet marketing that I haven’t really been involved in up to this point.

    Hey Donna,

    Definitely sounds interested. Love that you’re willing to try something new and get involved. Sounds like a real money maker if you’re in it.

    Keep us posted. Maybe a followup post saying out it works. That will certainly help more people get a handle on how it works.

    Best of luck to you on this new venture and kudos on your adventuresome-ness and bravery! 🙂

    Hi Barbara,

    I just did a follow-up post today. Sometimes I think my brain is on speed lol. I learn something, put it into action, and then keep going on. This is a wonderful experience and I’m excited to be on the ride. Because I’m all about IM, there are so many venues I love to jump on.

    I know I’m blessed because this is the only way I make my income and of course I do have David as a partner. Together we do amazing things. Life is never boring he he he

    This is so awesome. I saw the invitation on Google+ where you were doing an interview but unfortunately, I was not able to participate due to busy work. I am definitely going to watch the video.

    Who doesn’t want a recurring income? This is a wonderful opportunity. Thanks for sharing and have an awesome weekend

    I have a thought that instead of doing some sort of affiliate program to monetize my blog, I should write an incredibly amazing eBook related to my niche and it will be useful to hundreds of thousands of people out there.

    I actually do have a topic in mind. That health issue needs to be addressed and 87% of people in the world are suffering from it.

    Not much is written about it which is practical and time tested. I am not yet ready to venture into it since I do not have enough funds for it to create and promote.

    I think that is going to be my way of recurring income 🙂
