5 Tips on Reducing the Customer Churn Rate with an Effective Onboarding Process

  Reducing customer churn rate is one of the top concerns among software, mobile app, or subscription-based business owners. In fact, a recent study shows that most software solutions’ customer retention rate goes down to around 3% after 30 days post-installation. Often, these drops happen as soon as the free trial or demo expires. To reduce customer churn rate, you should consider reviewing your user onboarding process. This process is crucial in leaving a great impression on your customers. Nailing it could increase their overall satisfaction and encourage them to commit to your product for the long-term. With that, here are some tips on how to reduce churn rates with an effective customer onboarding process. 1. Make help easy to find and access First-time users may have a hard time navigating through your app’s interface. Therefore, you must make sure they can easily find and access help upon logging into your software. You can have a pop up at the start asking if they want a sho

Flexible user onboarding flow and why it is important

Why is flexibility important? Modern SaaS applications and web portals are complex systems and it´s not trivial to build a user onboarding journey for them. Animations and dynamic elements are introduced as part of the user experience. Technical concepts, such as single-page architecture, are widely adopted. The way how front-end elements are built and rendered has an impact. And your business logic and exceptions in the process further multiply the complexity. When choosing a User Onboarding Software, it is good to keep in mind that these complexities can limit or even prevent wider adoption. It´s important to choose a solution that can respect the specifics of your software. More flexible features, such as product tours, tutorials, or smart tips, mean a smoother experience for your users and a wider set of supported use cases. "Do not align your application with capabilities of a User Onboarding Software, choose a User Onboarding Software that can work with your application.&quo
