ROI stands for return on investment. It refers to the actual gain you receive from your investment on a particular marketing campaign and is relative to the cost of the investment.

How Do You Calculate ROI?

ROI is calculated by dividing the benefit of an investment by the cost of an investment. The result is a percentage.

The formula is simple:
ROI = (Gain of investment – Cost of investment) / (Cost of investment)
