## How to Calculate Your Website's ROI

##### What is ROI (Return On Investment)

How to measure ROI – What is the term “ROI”, and how can it calculate it? ROI, or return on investment, is a straightforward approach to analyse profitability. How much money did an investment make (or lose) after subtracting its expenses?

The return on investment influences many business and financial decisions. It may be used to identify the actual returns on investment, estimate the prospective return on a new investment, evaluate the potential returns of various investment alternatives, or predict the possible return on investment.

For example, the ROI formula may be used to evaluate the costs and potential returns of a business owner’s choice to expand into a new product line. A Return On Investment analysis may help a business owner determine if a new strategy is lucrative. The ROI formula is a straightforward indicator of current or predicted website performance and previous or future outcomes.

### Justifying the Dollar Value of Investment for a New Website

Purchasing a new company website is unquestionably an investment. Especially if you make everything from scratch, such as photographs, writing, product descriptions, etc. This implies you must guarantee that the expenditure is justified by your company’s prospective development. One of the first things you should study is the Return on Investment.

In light of this, let’s go through a quick calculation that will allow you to more precisely measure the Return On Investment of your website.

#### How to Measure ROI

So, how do you calculate ROI for your website? Assume the cost of constructing your website is \$6,000, for example. If it takes three years until a redesign is required, your yearly web development cost will be \$2,000 per year.

For this investment to be worthwhile, it must generate at least \$2,000 yearly profit (preferably more). If each consumer spends \$1,000, your website should be directly responsible for bringing in two new customers each year.

Once you have the average worth of your clients, the rest of your website’s computation is straightforward. Simply increase that by 36; if the average client is worth \$500, your website earns \$18,000 yearly. Compared to the \$2,000 yearly cost, the return on investment for your website is 90%.

The impact of your website on attracting new customers should now be calculated. Based on the items, industries, or services offered, and our design advice and ideas, we estimate that the website will attract 500 visitors per month, or 6,000 visits per year. If 3% of your website traffic convert to queries, your website will generate 180 new leads every year. Again, assuming 20% of these leads convert into paying customers, it equates to 36 new clients every year.

(average customer value x annual customers generated) / annual website cost = website ROI.

Of course, to accomplish that goal, you need a website that builds specifically to attract visitors, generate enquiries, and convert customers. For help in building that online presence, contact us.
