  • It depicts the health of a business, something an investor will look at before investing in the business. Total MRR is the north star metric that should increase in order to maintain sustainable growth.
  • Example: In a given period, 200 subscriptions are on Plan A ($50/Month) and 50 subscriptions has a recurring Addon ($10/month)
    MRR = (200 x 50) = $10,000
    Recurring Addon = (50 x 10) = $500
    Discount per Subscription = $10
    Total Discounts = (200 x 10) = $2,000
    Total Set up Fees = $700
    Total MRR = (10,000 + 500 - 2,000) = $8,500
