Posted by informatics matrix on September 25th, 2018

Are you a SaaS development service provider? If so, then what is the most challenging task of your software as a service distribution model? Is it to revive your brain-dead customer base or to manage the stock market? Well, there's something worse than these which most of the SaaS providers aren't stressed about, and it's to keep the ‘Customer Acquisition Cost (CAC)' as low as possible.

According to Steve Olenski's article in the Forbes, "Customer acquisition is an expensive process, however, with proper tips, you can lower your CAC." If your CAC turns out to be higher than expected, then your business is in a serious need of salvage.
