Description (Excerpt)

No matter how great your product is, it’s very likely that 40 to 60% of free trials never see your product a second time. This means that you stand to lose up to 60% of your hard-earned signups. Do you just let them go?

Email marketing is one of the highest leverage activities in a SaaS business. It can help:

• increase onboarding and trial conversions;
• reduce churn; and
• grow monthly recurring revenue (MRR).

By introducing a single campaign today, you could significantly increase your conversions, and get the benefits of that increase predictably and repeatedly, week after week. That’s the beauty of automation. It’s also how we created an upsell program at LANDR that was generating up to 42% of weekly subscription conversions. When I joined LANDR, we were only sending 3 automated emails (and only 1 of those was performing). By focusing on sending the right email to the right user at the right time, performance jumped up, with increases in:

• product onboarding completion;
• engagement;
• sales; and
• upgrades to annual subscriptions.
