Conversion Rate

Your Conversion Rate refers to the percentage of conversions that occur out of the total number of clicks an ad receives. A conversion takes place when a potential customer performs an action you have set. This can include anything from filling out a form or making a phone call to completing a sale.

To calculate your conversion rate, divide the number of conversions that occurred by the number of times an ad was clicked.

Cost per Conversion

Cost per Conversion refers to the average amount it costs for each conversion that is received. In other words, how much does it cost for your business to gain each new customer?

To calculate the average cost per conversion, you will need to divide the total cost for all clicks by the number of conversions received. This can also be referred to as the cost-per-action.

Conversion Value

Conversion Value refers to the monetary value you can assign to each action performed or conversion. This is done as certain actions can be considered more beneficial than others based on their worth to your business. Using conversion values, you can optimize your campaigns for the highest return on your investment.

Return on Investment (ROI)

Return on Investment (ROI) refers to the total amount of profit received after all expenses are paid, in comparison to the total cost of earning that profit. ROI allows you to take a look at the profits when everything is considered.

To calculate your ROI %, start by subtracting your expenses from your total revenue to calculate your profit, then divide by your total expenses times 100.
