Churn Rate

Customer churn rate refers to the percentage of those customers who stop conducting any business within a given time. Churn rate may also be referred to as attrition rate but in call center, attrition rate often refers to employees that leave the organization. For some industries including non-subscriber businesses or businsesses with a short buying value, customer churn rate may not be as useful and can only be used as a net value. It is, however useful in those businesses where number of active customers can be calculated such as Saas business enterprise.

How we calculate Churn Rate?

First identify a time period in which you want to measure a churn rate. After you have successfully identified a specific time, calculate churn rate by dividing the total number of customers churned during that time period by the total number of customers at the start of that time interval. It is common practice for business to calculate their churn rates monthly.

The formula used to calculate churn rate is as follows:

Churn Rate = Remaining Customers / (Customers at the Beginning+Number of Customers Acquired) 100

Calculating churn rate allows organizations to assess their performance and devise strategies to enhance and increase customer loyalty.

How it affect revenues?

If your customer churn rate is higher than your customer acquisition ratio, it’s time to rethink your business strategies. Customer Acquisition Cost is the amount of money a business spends to get a new customer and customer churn ratio is directly linked with it.

It takes significant cost to acquire a new customer and convincing them to purchase a product or service. With high churn rates, your customers may be churning before they could refer your product to other customers. They may also be churning before you get that investment back which you spent on converting them. Tracking churn rate can offer insights into the reasons behind lost customers. They may be having trouble with the features of your product or they may not be satisfied with your customer service.
