The decades-old software selling paradigm was completely disrupted by software as a service. For many companies, it turned buying software from an infrequent, high-cost process into a hosted, monthly and predictable cost-per-seat subscription service.

Early-stage startups are now using the defacto business model of the software-as-a-service industry. Per-seat subscription-based pricing is not a one-size fits all solution.

The next evolution is user-based pricing.

Instead of selling your software as a contract for a set price and time period, you charge only for what your customer actually uses. The pricing model doesn't work for every scenario. No one wants to pay per use for a service.

User-based pricing is a popular way to sell products. Twilio sells its services to other businesses that want to add capabilities. Other successful companies with usage-based pricing models include Datadog.

Is usage-based pricing the right pricing structure for your startup? When old-school metrics used to demonstrate a proven strategy aren't as useful, how do you use it to grow?

Kyle Poyar, the operating partner at Open View, was invited to share his knowledge and expertise in the session, How to Scale with Usage-based Pricing, at the early stage of the competition on April 14.

Poyar leads the growth team, which advises portfolio executives on strategies to increase revenue growth and dominate their markets. His specialty? The most effective, yet overlooked, growth lever is pricing and packaging.

Poyar says usage-based pricing will be the key to successful monetization in the future.

Long-term success is dependent on choosing the right pricing structure for your startup. Kyle Poyar will show you how to scale without old metrics and how to use usage-based pricing.
