Why Cash is King! One of the first things I often discuss with my SaaS founders are the pros and cons of monthly vs. annual subscription plans. This choice is always a trade-off between short term revenue growth vs. receiving more cash on day 1. So, what鈥檚 the best choice? More here... https://www.yannickoswald.com/post/why-cash-is-king

If we are talking about benchmarks, it would be very important for me to understand the upfront payment to the monthly payment ratio? What is good and what's outstanding? A standard benchmark is week over week growth rate on the revenue side, can you give also some insights on this one as well? (Related to the different stages would be great!) Last, I would like to know if you also compare the velocity of the development team with revenue growth - I believe there might be an indication for successes. How do you measure the LTV for a very new product? Because if you don't have any churn the LTV is indefinite. So many questions but so little time :-).

Thanks for reaching out Great is 80% annual plans, good is 50-60% In the first two years, you would like to grow 300-500% yoy for B2B (starting basis 50k-500k), 500%-1000% for B2C (starting basis 20k-50k) Regarding product development, the best consumer teams I have come across ship and test one or multiple new versions per week, and at least one feature a month in the first 2 years I never look at LTV as it doesn鈥檛 make much sense in the early days... I only look at engagement, especially after month 6 for annual plans to predict churn in month 13 (as I mostly invest in the company before that). More in this post https://www.yannickoswald.com/post/why-are-investors-obsessed-with-churn Hope this helps. Please feel free to DM me for any further questions. Thanks!

The most ambiguous term in startup land... A couple of weeks ago, I caught myself in a meeting using the wrong definition of ARR. I realized that most people in startups aren鈥檛 that familiar with the correct definitions of ARR, MRR, collections, and bookings. These terms can be so misleading... Let's review them. 馃憠 https://www.yannickoswald.com/post/the-most-ambiguous-term-in-startup-land
