When using Camtasia or Screenflow, you can also rip the audio from any video that you produce at

software and can use it forever without having to pay again or you could get customers to pay
annual license fees or better yet monthly fees.

their desktop. They can log into the software from any computer with internet access anywhere in
the world.

to upgrade, you would never have to pay again.

they send me a new license key to unlock the program for another year.
The best examples of monthly billing are for recurring services. You pay monthly web hosting fees
for example. I also pay a monthly fee to Aweber for my auto responder.
Another popular product nowadays is the lowly “app”. Millions of apps get sold every month now
for cell phones, IPads and other tablets. If you can dream it, someone has (or will) create an app for
it! Make sure that you are the one who creates the app to fill an important need.
This is a great example of when to outsource product creation to a skilled programmer. We are
going to look at outsourcing in a little while.
