TMCNet:  The Rapid Growth of Subscription-based Businesses

The Rapid Growth of Subscription-based Businesses

NEW YORK, September 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

According to a report by Forbes, subscription businesses are growing at an exponential rate. In the month of April 2017, subscription company websites had about 37 million visitors, which represents growth of over 800% since 2014. The growth of subscription-based businesses is in part, attributed to the affects that technology has had on consumer behavior. The report indicates that besides technology, the most important reason for subscription companies' growth is the change in retail tastes. "It's not enough anymore just to give consumers what they're looking for, if they know what they want they can get it with a click any time. To get a consumer excited, you have to offer something they're not expecting and subscriptions are an ideal instrument for surprise," according to the article. LottoGopher Holdings, Inc. (OTC: LTTGF), Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN), Stamps.com Inc. (NASDAQ: STMP), Cisco Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSCO), Salesforce.com (NYSE: CRM)

Technology does help businesses to study their potential clients. According to Forbes, John Fetto of�Hitwise, who presented at the recent�Subscription Summit�in Austin explained, "Personalization is key. Don't be afraid to ask for information from your consumer to help you deliver a more curated experience." Understanding the consumer's needs is a crucial part of today's online shopping culture, and it allows businesses to retain customers as subscribers for longer periods of time. "Subscriptions don't go on forever, eventually consumers end them. The key to enhanced profitability for subscription businesses is selling products that are good enough to lengthen the life of the average subscription. Subscription companies are always trying to replace the subscribers that leave and increase their subscriber base," the report indicates. �

LottoGopher Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: LTTGF) is�also listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange under the ticker symbol "LOTO".�Earlier today the company announced breaking news that actor, director, author and singer, William Shatner, has partnered up with LottoGopher to become the spokesperson for the Company. Shatner is a pop icon and Canadian-born actor best recognized for his roles on Star Trek, Boston Legal and T.J. Hooker. He was born in Montreal in 1931 and began his career as a child performer in radio programs for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC).

William Shatner commented: "I am very happy to be joining the LottoGopher team. Much like Netflix disrupted the movie rental business and Uber hailing a cab, LottoGopher is disrupting the lottery industry for Americans. Consumers nowadays demand exceptional service, competitive pricing, and the convenience of buying products online. LottoGopher offers a simple, cost-effective way to order lottery tickets online and I look forward to helping their customers dream big!"

James Morel, President and CEO of LottoGopher, commented: "We are beyond thrilled that William Shatner has agreed to collaborate with us to accelerate awareness of the brand as our spokesperson. His association and endorsement of LottoGopher will open up a huge audience base for our online lottery messenger service. He is one of the most recognizable celebrities in the world. We are very honored to be working with him and look forward to using his light-hearted brand of humor in our marketing."

Shatner pursued acting during his time at McGill University and in 1956 made his Broadway debut in Tamburlaine the Great, directed by Sir Tyrone Guthrie. Shortly thereafter, he entered the new and emerging medium of television. After a series of lead and support acting roles in the early 60's, in 1966 Shatner took the famous role of Captain James T. Kirk on Star Trek where he commanded the U.S.S. Enterprise, a starship traveling through space in the twenty third century. This was a life-changing, pivotal role for him that has highlighted his entire life's narrative and his professional resume. In 1997, Shatner teamed up with travel discount site, Priceline.com.
