Standard Subscription / Recurring Revenue Model
This model examines the revenue strategy and monetization potential for a product with subscription or recurring revenue. Using monthly customer data, the model calculates:
 •  Logo, net dollar, and gross dollar retention & churn rates
•  CAC associated with monthly direct and indirect expenses
•  Unit economics, from monthly gross margin %, churn rates, and CAC
•  LTR, LTV:CAC, payback period, and renewal rates

This model, and others that are publicly available, has increased in popularity as more businesses (SaaS, in particular) have built recurring revenue streams, while also investing heavily in product development and online / social media marketing early and often in their revenue cycle. ​​​​​​​
1) Revenue and Renewals - Customer Data, grouped by Period and Cohort
