  • The total amount of money generated from sales.
  • Indicates the financial health of your business.

Conversion Rate:

  • The percentage of visitors who make a purchase.
  • A higher conversion rate suggests effective listings and marketing.

Return on Advertising Spend (ROAS):

  • Measures the revenue generated for every dollar/Rupee spent on advertising.
  • Helps you assess the effectiveness of your advertising campaigns.

Customer Acquisition Cost (CAC):

  • The cost associated with acquiring a new customer.
  • Important for evaluating the efficiency of your marketing strategies.

Average Order Value (AOV):

  • The average amount spent by customers per order.
  • Useful for understanding purchasing behavior and maximizing revenue.

Tools for Data Analysis

Practical Example

Let’s say you want to analyze the performance of your “Cozy Candle Creations” lavender and vanilla scented candle. Here’s how you might proceed:

Sales Volume and Revenue: Use Amazon Seller Central to check the number of units sold and total revenue over the past month. You notice that sales have increased by 20% compared to the previous month, indicating growing demand.

Conversion Rate: Calculate the conversion rate by dividing the number of purchases by the number of visitors to your product listing. If your listing had 1,000 visitors and 50 purchases, your conversion rate is 5%.

ROAS: If you spent $200 on Sponsored Products ads and generated $1,000 in sales from those ads, your ROAS is 5 ($1,000/$200).

CAC: Calculate your customer acquisition cost by dividing your total marketing expenses by the number of new customers acquired. If you spent $500 on marketing and acquired 50 new customers, your CAC is $10.

AOV: If your total revenue for the month was $3,000 from 150 orders, your AOV is $20 ($3,000/150).
