Freemium conversion to paid subscription optimization

microsoftcombinator

Pay only for actual conversion to paid subscription growth

The majority of conversion rate optimization agencies don't promise any guarantees on freemium conversion to paid subscription improvement and just charge a fixed monthly fee avoiding any growth responsibility.

We conduct preliminary quantitative analytics before we accept a new client in order to forecast a specific percentage of uplift of conversion to paid subscription that we can achieve by an agreed date.

For instance, it could be 9% total conversion to paid subscription uplift in 3 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 achieve the forecasted conversion to paid subscription growth.

Sounds interesting? This promise of guaranteed results is based on our experience of running experiments on 21 million monthly users of our clients in freemium and understanding of conversion to paid subscription benchmarks.

How do we optimize freemium conversion to paid subscription?

Expertise growing freemium conversion to paid subscription

We have conducted approximately 513 A/B tests for 42 freemium projects and a lot of them needed conversion to paid subscription optimization. Ask for the most relevant freemium case studies for the same market.

There are three major factors to consider when you evaluate the experience of a CRO agency.

Ask them about the experience with:

  1. process
  2. freemium
  3. market.

Most conversion optimization firms claim to have conversion optimization process competence and pitch the same things about their capability in UX research and experimentation.

And you should have at least enough experience to understand the depth of these skills on initial calls, which could be hard to do.

What do you do if you can't do a technical assessment on data analytics and experimentation? The simple solution is to ask for their expertise in the same business model, as any freemium has similar challenges and best practices.

Isn't it useful when your contractor has already carried out the same research on millions of users and gained insights on how to optimize conversion to paid subscription? On the other hand, each business model has completely unique tech and data tracking stacks that require distinct skills, processes and mindsets.

And if you hire an agency expecting a turnkey solution, you don t expect the agency to be doing important things for the first time or find them quickly hiring freelancers to fill in skill shortages, right? Just as important is market expertise, which is mostly about understanding unique customer demands.

And that's the main area of the research if the agency already shows the business model expertise.

So it's definitely a clear differentiator if the contractor has that, but it dramatically decreases the choice of CRO agencies with all three components (process, freemium, and industry expertise).

But if the conversion optimization firm has worked with 326 clients as we have, then they likely have experience in the same market as yours.

And even if it's from a different business model it could be even more beneficial as it can uncover new conversion to paid subscription growth hacks that your competition may be not use right now.

1. Top-notch experiment statistics.
2. 26-31% success rate with at least 1-5% total revenue growth, achieved based on a unique methodology combining quantitative and qualitative research.
3. Trusted to conduct A/B/n tests on 173 m. monthly active users.

What is a average freemium conversion to paid subscription?

The first goal of freemium CRO process is to choose the drop-off in the funnel. Even if you've done advanced funnel analytics, cohorts, and quantitative user journey research, how do you know that your current conversion to paid subscription has the highest growth potential? Clearly the critical element is to get valid and most recent numbers on freemium conversion to paid subscription benchmarks in your niche. Ask for freemium conversion to paid subscription benchmarks and a consultation on strategies to grow.
