Subscribed hearts subscriptions so much we even wrote a book about it.

A Forbes Top 10 Business Book and national bestseller, Subscribed (the book) details the benefits of service-based subscription models disrupting industries across the globe, transforming companies and redefining the future of business.

If you’re not shifting to a subscription business model now, chances are that in a few years you might not have any business left to shift.Tien Tzuo, CEO of Zuora
About Tien

In 2007, Tien Tzuo evangelized the shift from products to services, coining the phrase “The Subscription Economy.” Before starting Zuora, Tzuo was one of the ‘original forces’ at Salesforce (employee #11) where he built its original billing system and served as their Chief Strategy Officer & Chief Marketing Officer for almost a decade. Following his experience at Salesforce, Tzuo launched Zuora and for the last 13 years has made it his mission to empower businesses to make the shift to subscription-based business models.

Over the years, Tzuo has been regarded as the world’s foremost authority on the Subscription Economy – recruited to be on the cover of Forbes AI, profiled by Forbes, Fortune, and the Wall Street Journal, as well as interviewed live on CNBC, Mad Money and Sky TV. Tzuo was named Entrepreneur of the Year by EY in 2016, CEO of the Year by The Silicon Valley Business Journal in 2018, and most recently named a bestselling author by USA Today and Amazon for his book Subscribed. Tzuo has spoken at the G-20 Summit and has been a mentor to Andre Iguodala of the Golden State Warriors.

Tien Tzuo, who I was lucky enough to hire as my eleventh employee at Salesforce, has written the definitive playbook for anyone navigating the most important business model shift of our time. The subscription model is exploding everywhere, and nobody knows how to steer through this shift better than Tien.Marc Benioff, Chairman & CEO of Salesforce
