Upsells key to growth and scale

As shown in the chart below, companies that have made it past the $40MM revenue mark use upsells to drive a much higher percentage of their new Average Contract Value (ACV) than smaller companies. In fact, companies in the $40-75MM revenue range attribute twice as much new revenue to upsells as the median company.

Of course, it’s dangerous to imply causation here. There are a number of reasons why we might see this effect in later-stage companies. One unexciting possibility is that their overall growth in new business is slowing down and it’s skewing these percentages in favor of upsells. Let’s look at this data through another lens and explore how upsells are related to growth.
