Freemium conversion to subscription optimization

microsoftcombinator

Buy conversion to subscription growth the same as you buy traffic

The majority of CRO agencies don't promise any guarantees on freemium conversion to subscription improvement and simply ask for a fixed monthly cost avoiding any uplift KPIs.

We estimate potential growth opportunities before we make an offer so that we can forecast a specific percentage of increase of conversion to subscription that we can achieve by an agreed date.

For instance, it could be 11% total conversion to subscription improvement in four months.

In case of not delivering by the deadline, which happens in 4-7% of cases, we perform more experiments for FREE until we deliver the promised conversion to subscription growth.

Sounds fair? This promise of guaranteed uplift is based on our experience of experimentation on 28 million monthly users of our clients in freemium and understanding of conversion to subscription benchmarks.

How do we optimize freemium conversion to subscription?

Experience growing freemium conversion to subscription

We have carried out approximately 471 experiments for 45 freemium projects and the majority asked for conversion to subscription optimization. Ask for the most relevant freemium case studies for similar industry.

There are three primary parameters to look at when you evaluate the expertise of a CRO agency.

Ask them about the experience with:

  1. process
  2. freemium
  3. industry.

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

And the client should have some experience to comprehend the level of this expertise during the pre-sale stage, which could be difficult.

What do you do if you can't do a competence assessment on data engineering and A/B testing? The simple solution is to look at their experience in the same business model, as any freemium has similar pain points and analytics frameworks.

Isn't it handy when a conversion optimization firm has already carried out similar research on millions of users and obtained insights on how to improve conversion to subscription? On the other hand, different business models typically have completely unique tech and data tracking stacks that require different skills, processes and values.

And if you hire a contractor for their expertise, you don t expect the agency to be doing important things for the first time or find them hastily hiring new team members to cover skill shortages, right? Not least of all is industry expertise, which is all about understanding unique customer needs.

And that's the main focus of the analytics if the agency already boasts the business model experience.

So it's obviously a killer competitive advantage if the contractor has that, but it dramatically decreases the shortlist of CRO agencies that have all three components (process, freemium, and industry expertise).

However, if the conversion optimization firm has helped to grow 319 clients as we have, then they most likely have experience in a similar industry to you.

And even if it's from a different business model it could be even more useful as it can bring fresh conversion to subscription growth hacks that your competitors may be not have yet.

1. Top-notch split-testing statistical analysis.
2. Privileged to develop A/B tests on 176 million users per month.
3. Executing a whole CRO process including experiment development
