This metric indicates how long your customers stay with you on average. Every month, whenever a customer stays with you, it comes as additional revenue. You can grow this number by controlling your churn. Subscription lifetime can also be calculated for the overall customer base. However, in this case, it is done only for paid subscriptions.
