Let’s face it; the subscription has been uncool for years. While disruptive technologies and changing arts consumer behavior have transformed the way arts managers see their business model, the subscription has declined and stagnated. “Subscriptions are dead” is now conventional wisdom in our industry.
But, if subscriptions were truly dead, wouldn’t they have just disappeared by now? Inconveniently, subscriptions incentivize loyalty and provide sustainable revenue that's difficult to find elsewhere in any audience-centered business model. Many organizations that have tried to innovate in this area have found themselves in a state of subscription emergency.
The fact is, subscriptions are still viable, but selling them today requires a different mindset than it did 5, 10, or 20 years ago. While it takes work to rescue and resuscitate your subscription program, it's achievable and you already have many of the tools you need to do it. In this webinar, CEO & President Jill Robinson presented:
- Evidence that subscription survives and, yes, even thrives at arts organizations today
- How subscription can build loyalty among audiences
- What it takes in 2015 to rescue your subscription program
