Calculator Metrics Explained

Just in case you would have struggled with any metrics:

  • Predicted Impressions: Expected Impressions over a specified time period. If you can only see # users, multiply it by frequency (recommend to use frequency 3 per day for calculation),

  • CTR: Click-through rate, calculated as Click / Impressions. If you can't predict it, use an educated guess.

  • CPM: Cost per Thousand Impressions. Media Buying offers you most of the time guaranteed CPMs. If you don't have one, you can use past CPMs for prediction.

  • Conversion Rate: You can easily find this information in the analytics tool of your choice, most likely Google Analytics.

  • Average Order Value (AOV): Can be calculated as Revenue / # Orders.

  • Average Margin: Data needed from ERP or CRM.

  • Other Cost: You can include any additional costs
