Why Do Customers Churn? 

 customer satisfaction

Customers are the lifeline for the SaaS subscription business. 

Customer churn is an ongoing concern for subscriber-based services companies.  

SaaS, or software as a service, is a subscription-based platform where customers pay subscription fees for services such as DropboxAdobe, or Netflix.  

The Top reasons for customers' churn: 

  1. Bad customer service 
  2. Fewer/more features in your SaaS product 
  3. Pricing 

 1. Bad customer service:  

The key to good customer service is building good relationships with your customers, thanking them and promoting positive, warm and easy to access ambience with them.  

Creating a feeling of making each customer and his feedback matter the most is what either lifts your business up or turns it down 

2. Fewer/more features in your SaaS product: 

Too many complex features in the SaaS product can confuse customers resulting in annoyance. 

At the same time if your product does not satisfy the customer's needs and if your competitors offer a product that clears most of their needs, your customers will get drawn towards them.  

Easy access to payments and importing/exporting data  from Google Cloud platforms could turn fruitful for your customers. 

3. Pricing: 

Hesitance about pricing is part of the game. 

A more price-conscious customer would have it as a higher priority on his list of priorities than having product that fits his needs. 

And if he does not see the value of his fund in the product in the initial few months, he would most likely be resting his case and unsubscribe from the product. 

SaaS companies using cloud infrastructure due to its cost- efficiency could attract customers
