Learn how to calculate Monthly Recurring Revenue (MRR) in Method CRM with this step-by-step guide. Optimize your subscription-based business by accurately tracking your MRR.

Calculating MRR (Monthly Recurring Revenue) is an essential metric for any business that offers subscription-based services. It helps you understand the revenue you can expect each month, which is crucial for forecasting and planning. In this article, we'll explain what MRR is, why it's valuable to calculate, and how to calculate it in Method CRM.

## What Is MRR?

MRR is the amount of revenue a business expects to receive each month from its subscription-based services. It's calculated by multiplying the number of active subscribers by the monthly subscription fee. For example, if you have 100 subscribers paying \$50 per month, your MRR would be \$5,000.

It's important to note that MRR only includes revenue from recurring subscriptions and not one-time purchases or other sources of revenue. It's also a forward-looking metric, meaning it's based on expected revenue for the upcoming month, not past revenue.

## When Is It Valuable To Calculate MRR?

Calculating MRR is valuable for any business that offers subscription-based services, as it provides insight into the expected revenue for the upcoming month. This information is crucial for forecasting and planning, as it allows you to make informed decisions about hiring, marketing, and other business expenses.

MRR is also a key metric for investors and lenders, as it provides a clear picture of a business's recurring revenue stream. This information is essential for determining the value of a business and its potential for growth.

## How to Calculate MRR in Method CRM

Method CRM is a powerful tool for managing your subscription-based services and calculating MRR. To calculate MRR in Method CRM, follow these steps:

In conclusion, calculating MRR is an essential metric for any business that offers subscription-based services.
