Marginal Revenue

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

Marginal revenue is the revenue for each additional unit sold.

The additional unit comes with a marginal cost which is the additional cost on that unit.

As the startup scales costs will rise and at some point, the marginal cost per unit will increase.

Startups should raise their prices as they grow so the marginal revenue stays ahead of the marginal cost.

By adding more features to the software platform or expanding the product to have more benefits, the product should command a higher price.

You calculate marginal revenue by taking the change in revenue divided by the change in quantity.

Change in revenue is calculated by taking the total revenue and subtracting the last unit sale revenue.

Marginal revenue and marginal cost are good indicators for predicting the direction of profit.

For startups, this helps determine your cash runway.
