The Top 10
Generate Recurring Revenue
Imagine that you have finished with a WordPress project. As you are handing your new client the keys to the car, you ask if they need one of your WordPress maintenance packages. Look, you had plans to throw a party. The project is done, the final payment is in, and you breathe a sigh of relief, but you hear those dreaded words from your client after asking about maintenance. What do your customers usually say when you ask if they would like to purchase a maintenance plan? Here’s how to close the sale.
WP Elevation alumnus Suraj Sodha tells the story of how he found great value (and profitability) in recurring revenue business models. But he didn’t stop at selling WordPress maintenance plans to clients. Suraj created WPMaintain, a WordPress maintenance company solely dedicated to providing top-notch after-care for website owners and other web designers.
How would you like an extra $100-$300+ per client every month? If your WordPress development, design or marketing business isn’t offering a WordPress site maintenance package you’re missing out on a huge opportunity. Give your clients peace of mind and spare them the horror they would suffer if left to their own devices, all while establishing yourself as their go-to, one-stop web solution. It’s a win-win!

While you can’t predict the future, you can make yourself aware of what to look out for to be as prepared as possible!

Roel Zylstra didn’t join the ranks of small business owners fresh out of school.

Then Roel enrolled in GoDaddy’s early Reseller Program as one of the first few hundred to join.
