Return on Investment Calculator

What do we mean by ROI?

In simple terms, ROI means Return on Investment. It is an important measure for any business as it helps to gauge the return percentage on the total cost incurred for the business.  Every organization needs to assess the return on investment made to help judge the campaigns’ success.

In the usual business landscape, the cost is generally calculated figuring in the operational and capital expenditure, as well as the depreciation charges and reserves.  In the case of advertising, however, it is only the media spent. 

Revenue, on the other hand, is the aggregate of income generated. To assess the ROI, we would first need to minus the advertisement cost from the revenue and derive the margin.  The ROI is calculated using the simple formula below and is expressed in a percentage. 

ROI = (Revenue – Ad Cost)/ Ad Cost *100
