Acquiring a new customer is anywhere from 5 to 25 times more expensive than retaining an existing one.

The higher your churn rate, the more customers you must acquire to grow. A churn rate of 5% per month is equal to losing nearly half of your existing customers in a single year—meaning half of your revenue. And the effort and expense that went into acquiring, training, provisioning, and supporting those customers are all lost. What is a healthy churn rate for education and what does that mean to your bottom line?

See how you stack up against industry churn benchmarks.
