When it comes to marketing, measuring return on investment (ROI) is crucial to determine if your campaigns are generating the desired result.
In this article, we introduce you to the key tools and metrics you should use to measure the ROI of your email marketing campaigns and social media advertising strategies, and how to interpret them to optimize your marketing strategies.
ROI is an acronym that stands for “return on investment” in Spanish. It is a metric used to measure the return and profitability of an investment, whether in a business, project or marketing campaign.
ROI is expressed as a percentage or a fraction that indicates the relationship between the amount of money gained or lost with respect to the cost of the investment.
For example, if you invest $100 in an advertising campaign and earn $200 in revenue as a result of that campaign, your ROI will be 100% ($200 – $100 = $100, $100 / $100 = 1 or 100%).
It is important to make informed decisions on how to use resources. Therefore, it is important to measure and analyze ROI on a regular basis to ensure that you are investing your money effectively and profitably.
