Put values--and value--over volume with a professional services subscription model
Professional firms are built on relationships. But you wouldn't know it by observing their predominant business model -- a model centered on selling transactions and inputs, not outcomes that deepen and strengthen relationships.
Time's Up! offers you a guide to building a more valuable firm, one where relationships and lifetime customer value are at the center of how you create and capture value. You'll learn how to:
* Create customer lifetime values that far exceed acquisition and retention costs
* Move customer relationships to the center of your firm
* Leverage the collective knowledge of your customers
* Elevate customers from where they are to their desired future by providing transformations, where the customer is the product.
Only uncommon offerings command uncommon prices. Time's Up! introduces you to a revolutionary new business model that transforms your firm, your teams and your results with the customer right at the center of the process.

--ED KLESS, Radio Talk-Show Host, The Soul of Enterprise: Business in the Knowledge Economy
"Ron Baker has written a magnificent and provocative book on the evolution of the business model and effective and adaptive pricing for value. It is a new paradigm that every professional firm must adopt to remain competitive and profitable. As an economist, I found Ron's historical overview of economic history and anecdotal business examples and pricing strategies of disruptors to be both inspirational and profound. This book is required reading for any profit oriented 21st century business leader."
