SaaS-y trends: Not the same as in other industries

The subscription model has conquered the SaaS industry and nowadays almost all SaaS companies operate with a subscription-based pricing model. In the case of a typical non-SaaS business, a customer pays a one-time fee and gets the product forever.
Another thing that makes SaaS stand out – it takes time to get your investment and cash money back. And the faster you want to grow, the bigger your losses will be in the beginning. Sounds paradoxical. Let’s be clear. You invested $2500 and acquired 5 customers, your CAC is $500. Your customers subscribed to a $90 monthly plan and will pay back that $500 in 5.5 months, not immediately. So you will recover your CAC gradually and after 5.5 months, the longer your customer continues his plan, the more your net profit will be.
In the SaaS industry, a customer buys a subscription package, not a product. And that product (software) is available as long as the customer continues to pay the subscription fee. Of course, you can find software for which you pay a fixed price and use it for a lifetime but it’s more an exception than a rule.

That’s not the end as metrics like NPS, LVR and Churn rate and others are not less valuable to measure and analyze.
You know your CLV, you know how much to invest in customer acquisition. Your NPS is a negative number, that means your customers have a painful experience with you (hope that’s not your case).
Your Churn rate is low, you know your product and team perform great (hope that’s your case). And the list goes on…
With key SaaS KPIs at your disposal, data tells you what’s your current the situation, what’s missing and what to do next – that’s when you should make your SaaS-saving or SaaS-improving decisions. If
