Freemium conversion to paid optimization

Guaranteed growth results

The majority of CRO agencies don't promise any guarantees on freemium conversion to paid optimization results and just ask for a fixed monthly fee without any growth commitments.

We conduct research before we accept a new client so that we can forecast a specific percentage of uplift of conversion to paid that we can achieve by an agreed deadline.

For instance, it could be 12% total conversion to paid improvement in two months.

In case of not delivering by the deadline, which happens in 4-7% of projects, we conduct more experiments FREE of charge until we provide the forecasted conversion to paid growth.

Sounds fair? This promise of guaranteed growth is based on our experience of conducting A/B tests on 36 million monthly users of our clients in freemium and understanding of conversion to paid average conversion rates.

How do we optimize freemium conversion to paid?

Experience growing freemium conversion to paid

We have delivered approximately 478 A/B tests for 47 freemium projects and in most cases we worked on conversion to paid optimization. Request the most relevant freemium case studies for the same market.

There are three important parameters to check when you evaluate the experience of a conversion rate optimization firm.

Ask them about the experience with:

  1. process
  2. freemium
  3. market.

The majority of CRO agencies claim to have conversion optimization process experience and propagate the same story of their capability in quantitative research and A/B testing.

And your in-house team should have at least enough hands-on experience to judge the depth of this expertise on initial calls, which could be challenging.

How do you choose if you can't do a competence interview on data engineering and experimentation? The simple solution is to ask for their expertise in the same business model, as any freemium has similar challenges and processes.

Isn't it handy when your contractor has already carried out the same research on millions of users and gained data on how to improve conversion to paid? On the flip side, each business model has completely unique tech and analytics stacks that need distinct specialists, approaches and mindsets.

And if you hire a contractor not to micro-manage, you don t expect the agency to be winging it or find them quickly recruiting new team members to cover gaps in their team, right? Last but not least is market experience, which is mostly about knowing your user requirements.

And that's the key focus of the research if the agency already has the business model expertise.

So it's definitely a killer differentiator if the contractor has that, but it dramatically narrows the pool of contractors with all three components (process, freemium, and industry expertise).

However, if the agency has optimized 326 clients as we have, then they most likely have case studies in a similar market to you.

And even if it's from a different business model it could be even more helpful as it can bring uncommon conversion to paid growth hacks that your competitors may be not utilize yet.

1. Top-notch experimentation statistical analysis.
2. 22-32% A/B test success rate with at least 1-5% total revenue growth, achieved based on a unique methodology combining quantitative and qualitative research.
3. Track record of average revenue per user CRO for well-optimized funnels
