In-App Paywall Optimization: Advanced Tactics and Examples - Nicolas Tissier (Purchasely's CEO)

App-Growth-Summit-NYC-Purchasley's Nicolas Tissier

The highlight of the event for Purchasely was Nicolas Tissier's session on in-app paywall optimization.

As the CEO of Purchasely, Nicolas is an expert in driving app revenue through paywall optimization. His session, "In-App Paywall Optimization: Advanced Tactics and Examples" provided attendees with valuable insights and best practices for maximizing retention and minimizing churn.

Nicolas began by acknowledging the universal challenge of boosting an app's revenue - the issue of churn throughout the subscriber journey. He then continued to highlight each stage of the app user journey, presenting some impressive statistics about the specific pain points and benchmarks for each stage, as well as some noteworthy best practices.

To illustrate his points, he provided several examples of paywalls from a variety of apps, including some from Purchasely's customers including Kidly, Just a baby, Kidslox, WeFast, and more. 

Exploring App Growth Pain Points: Statistics Shared During the Session

  • 80% of DAU are lost during the first 3 days
  • 80% of the subscribers subscribe on the first day
  • 68% of users will close the first paywall in less than 10 seconds
  • 25 % of users uninstall an app after just one attempt to use it
  • only 15% of users start free-trial (in the case of top-performing apps)
  • only 2-4% of users install an app stay until day 30
  • 1/3 of users cancel the free trial within the 1st hour
  • 60% of the retention drop comes from the free trial
