Subscription Genius overview

What is Subscription Genius?

Subscription Genius is an online subscription and mailing list management tool for publishers, which offers tools for tracking and managing subscribers, setting up a website paywall, processing payments and configuring recurring payments, creating a custom branded eCommerce portal, launching email marketing campaigns, and more. Subscription Genius is a fully cloud-based solution which allows businesses to automate daily processes from subscriber checkout to subscription renewals.

Businesses can utilize Subscription Genius to track, manage, and maintain subscriptions, with tools for tracking the start date of subscriptions, viewing payments, and accessing a full subscriber database with individual customer profiles. Users can create a custom branded eCommerce portal to facilitate subscription purchase, and this can be integrated with existing checkout systems and payment processors such as Authorize.Net and PayPal to manage secure payments. Subscription Genius also offers the tools to define promotions, run automatic renewals, and organize competitions for website visitors.

With Subscription Genius, publishers can set up paywalls to limit access to certain areas of the publication website to only paying subscribers. Website visitors who want to view restricted content are then required to pay for a subscription in order to fully access all content, and businesses are able to gather insights on how subscribers are interacting with the content. The Subscription Genius big data tools allow users to analyze the customer journey and identify their most engaged subscribers, as well as those who are at risk of unsubscribing. Marketing campaigns can be created and scheduled within the Subscription Genius platform, and businesses can create customer segments and target visitors with personalized content relating to their behavior or demographic.

Great software for managing the subscription databases of our printed magazines

Subscription Genius can be as simple or as complex as you need it to be. You can connect it to QuickBooks, ecommerce, paywalls, marketing software, and even your publication printer. Auditing, reporting, and all the data tools are there too. But we use for the simple management and exporting of the subscription databases for our printed magazines. Our team members can login and manage the databases from anywhere, and it makes managing renewals and expirations very simple.

Since we only use the most basic subscriber management functions of the software, I haven't run into any issues whatsoever.
