How to Measure Marketing ROI

ROI Attribution Approach

  1. Determine the closing rate on phone calls/form submissions/visitors to your location
  2. Calculate the value of your average sale
  3. Determine the ROI from phone calls/form submissions/visitors to your location
  4. Put more money into the efforts with the highest ROI and less (or none) into the ones with the lowest ROI

Formula: [(number of leads x lead close rate x average sale price) – cost of marketing] / cost of marketing x 100 = ROI
