As most online entrepreneurs know, you can get amazing lifetime deals on software from Appsumo. The deals appear about once per week and are especially suitable to small and micro businesses.
But sometimes, by the time you get around to checking them out, the best deals have expired so you end up missing them. But now there’s a way to gain access to some of the finest ones even if they have already expired.
Look Into AppSumo Briefcase
Briefcase from Appsumo is a growing set of products that will growth hack your small business. Briefcase includes many of the past deals you’ve missed, PLUS many future deals.
For a reasonable monthly subscription, you’ll have access to a growing number of superb products that would normally cost you over a thousand dollars per month if you were to buy them all individually – and that number is growing.
Right now my Briefcase Account has 35 products in it. But as soon as you join, the number of products available to you increases each month.
Briefcase is a new way to purchase software. For one low monthly price you have everything you need to run your business, from SEO tools, graphic design studios, accounting and invoicing, to some of the best marketing tools on the web!
The sooner you join, the more products you have access to. There’re only a limited number of licences for each product so some will go missing each month from the offer as others arrive, for those joining later on.
Current Contents Of BriefCase
Here’s a summary of the products in my Briefcase. If you sign up long after today, what’s included for you may differ slightly.
Please note – many of the product links go through to expired deals on AppSumo. But I have linked to them so you can read about each one and familiarise yourself with what you are getting. Rest assured. The expired products are currently still available through Briefcase.

This is the one question that determines the success of a business. The idea is that customer satisfaction surveys are rarely filled in as they ask too many questions, the one question asked by Customer Guru is the one that really matters and can tell you all you need to know to grow.
