With so many channels available to small businesses for reaching customers, it’s important to have a solid understanding of how to measure the Return on Investment (ROI) of your digital marketing campaigns.  Let’s explore a few ways to measure ROI and provide tips for optimizing your digital marketing efforts.

Define Your Goals

The first step in measuring the ROI of your digital marketing campaigns is to define your goals. Without clear objectives, it’s impossible to determine if your efforts are successful. Examples of common digital marketing goals include increasing website traffic, generating leads, and improving brand awareness.

Set Up Analytics for ROI

Once you’ve established your goals, it’s important to set up analytics to track your progress. Google Analytics is a popular tool that can help you monitor website traffic, track conversions, and analyze user behavior. Digital marketing tracking tools can help with tracking SEO metrics and keyword rankings.

Calculate Cost per Acquisition (CPA)

To calculate the ROI of your digital marketing campaigns, you first need to determine the cost per acquisition (CPA). This is the cost you incur to acquire a new customer or lead. To calculate CPA, divide the total cost of your campaign by the number of conversions it generated. This will give you a baseline for measuring ROI.

Determine Return on Investment (ROI)

To determine the ROI of your digital marketing campaigns, subtract your total cost from your total revenue and divide the result by your total cost. This will give you a percentage that represents your ROI. For example, if your campaign generated $10,000 in revenue and cost $5,000 to run, your ROI would be 100%.

Analyze and Optimize

Once you’ve calculated your ROI, it’s time to analyze the results and optimize your digital marketing campaigns. Look at which channels and tactics performed the best and allocate more resources to those areas. Make adjustments to underperforming campaigns and test new strategies to see if they can improve results.


Measuring the ROI of your digital marketing campaigns for your small business is critical for maximizing the effectiveness of your marketing efforts. By defining your goals, setting up analytics, calculating CPA, determining ROI, and analyzing and optimizing your campaigns, you can improve your return on investment and achieve your marketing objectives.  Sonus Digital can not only help you define your digital marketing strategy and goals, but help create and define the analytics most important to your business.
