The biggest problem with membership and subscription programs is that your members quit. Robert Skrob can help you implement his 7-part membership subscription growth framework to help you stop your members from quitting, empowering you to meet and exceed your recurring revenue goals.

For more than two decades, Robert has helped hundreds of membership programs launch and then grow from start-ups to become some of the largest membership and subscription companies in the world. After beginning his career as the leading membership growth expert for nonprofits and political organizations, Robert pioneered monthly continuity subscriptions with for-profit membership and subscription programs in 2004. Robert’s profound understanding of what members ardently want from their membership relationships enables him to help you build connections with members that last for years. In a world where excessive churn rates are all too common and even accepted, Robert is able to transform subscription programs from what he calls “a series of one night stands” into long-term relationships. Robert is the author of five books on marketing published by Entrepreneur Press.

Robert earned a Master’s in Accountancy degree from Florida State University and became a Certified Public Accountant. Although he hasn’t practiced public accounting since 1993, he maintains his CPA license and fulfills its continuing education requirements out of deference to his mother, who wants him to keep his license so he has something “to fall back on in case this subscription marketing thing doesn’t work out.”

Robert and his wife, Kory, have two children. Their daughter, Samantha, attends Florida State University, and their son, Robert William, is a senior in high school. In his spare time, Robert runs and smokes Partagas #10 cigars, although rarely at the same time.
