Traditional business models are set up on the notion that customers will make singular purchases, a subscription model brings in constant, consistent revenue.
Importantly, subscription revenue modelling is a continuous process, and forecasting subscription revenue accurately can be tricky. Whilst often a detailed plan is built out ahead of a financial period (like the start of the financial year), it is important to check on your assumptions and adjust the values to maintain an accurate picture of the future. Circumstances can change, your assumptions may have been wrong or you’ve changed the way your business works slightly; there’s all manner of things that can impact your revenue and your model. By constantly checking, updating or creating new models you can ensure your business can adapt quickly to change, make data-driven decisions and stay ahead.
