Average Order Value (AOV) This is the average value (in dollars) of your order. This assumes the items in a sale are in the same price range. If your orders include items with a wide range in price, you may need to develop KPI’s for different amount of sales.

How to calculate your AOV Divide your revenues by the number of orders Total Revenue / Number of Orders = AOV Example: In the last month, Jittery Joe’s had a total revenue of \$48,240. The number of orders was 9140. What is the AOV?

Customer Lifetime Value (CLV) The value of the revenue from the average customer over the lifetime of that customer.

How to calculate the CLV Multiply the AOV by the average number of orders by customers and the average lifetime of a customer. AOV * Number of Orders by a Customer per Year * Number of Years for Customer = CLV Example: The average number of orders by a customer per year is ten. An average number of years for a Jittery Joe’s customer is six. What is her customer lifetime value? Remember the AOV is \$5.28.

CLV (Customer Lifetime Value) CLV for Jittery Joe’s is \$316.80 As a general rule of thumb says you should invest 10% of your customer lifetime value in acquiring a new customer. How much should Jittery Joe’s invest to acquire a new customer?

Relationships CLV for Jittery Joe’s is \$316.80 If a customer refers one customer per year over a six year period, then the customer is worth \$1900.00

Project Rate of Return (PRR) A marketing project can use a PRR value (usually 25%) This is how much your company must earn on its marketing to be profitable. With a 25% PRR, the revenue will be four times the investment. If you spent \$1 in marketing, you should expect \$4 in revenues.

PRR Varies Established company –Spend less and get more results –10% New company –Wants to grow aggressively, they will spend more to acquire new customers. –50%, 70%, or higher

Cost-per-Action (CPA) An action is the successful completion of a goal.

How to calculate the CPA Multiply the CLV by the PRR CLV * PRR = CPA Example: Jittery Joe’s PRR is 25% and the CLV is \$316.80 What is the CPA?

Close Rate (CR) Ratio of how many leads turn into customers. Aim f0r a 30% to 50% close rate Number of Customers / Number of Leads * 100 Example: Jittery Joe’s can expect 12 customers for every 25 leads. What is the Close Rate?

Cost-per-Lead How much a lead may cost A lead is a prospect or a contact that you then convert into a customer.

How to calculate the CPL Multiply the CPA by the Close Rate (CR) CPA * CR = CPL Example: Jittery Joe’s CR is 48% and the CPA \$79.20. What is the CPL?

Jittery Joe’s Can spend up to \$38 per lead and still be profitable. The close rate is 48% which is pretty high. Close Rate increases, the CPL increases. Close Rate decreases, the CPL decreases. The higher the CR, the more money a business can spend on a lead and still be profitable. KPI Worksheet
