  • What common pitfalls to watch out for, anticipate, and avoid when setting up a subscription model
  • Why a “dashboard of metrics” can offer you better insights into where your opportunities for improving engagement can be found

  • Robbie shares the story of the founders of LinkedIn’s first business, a dating website, and the issues they had with a “short term promise” business model
