Back in June 2020, Flywheel announced the upcoming release of the Flywheel Growth Suite, a recurring revenue and client management tool for WordPress agencies. Now, it has officially been released.
As a freelancer or WordPress agency, the following situation is certainly more than familiar to you. You have created a new website for a client locally on your staging environment, upload it to their server after approval, and invoice them for it. Done! Sounds good, but this is often only a one-time revenue. So it would be better for you – and your bank account – if you could offer your client WordPress maintenance and hosting packages without any headaches. This way you get monthly recurring revenue and build trust and loyalty to you and your agency.
The problem is that many web hosting providers are either not designed for this or are prohibitively expensive. Fortunately, there is Flywheel!
The Solution: Flywheel Growth Suite
Growth Suite is Flywheel’s brand-new billing and client management solution. It allows you to bill your clients for maintenance and hosting packages and earn monthly recurring revenue (MRR). The best part? You can do all this under your own brand!
