Customer Acquisition Cost Over Time

Adding new customers in a cost-effective manner is one of the key attributes of a successful subscription business. It means that marketing spend is targeted well, and that target customers are responding to your outreach.

Customers come from many sources, but a large portion generally comes from direct to consumer marketing campaigns and outreach activities.  It is important to measure and monitor your Customer Acquisition Cost over time, giving you a view into the total average cost of acquiring a subscriber and showing the number of trials gained as a result of the marketing efforts.
