Standardizing renewal increases
Hi all! New member here. Looking forward to interacting with you all.
I found some related posts, but wanted to start a new thread about standardizing renewal price increases for annual contracts.
Not the process of securing the renewal, but rather how to internally standardize rates of increase. There's not a ton of best practice content out there on the "gold standard" rate of increase—especially in this climate.
I lean towards LTV and relationship value—proposing we max our renewal increases at 10% and vy for growth through pricing levers. My head of sales, being a revenue guy, prefers to go in at a minimum 20% increase to get older contracts up to par with newer contracts—a strategy that has succeeded on most occasions, but has left one or two sour customers.
The other benefit of standardizing this will of course be cross-functional clarity on expectations and forecasts.
So I ask this of you, fellow CS folk: What rate have you standardized for flat annual renewals? Is there a benchmark or best practice here that I'm missing? Cheers.
