  • 31. Conversion Rate % of visitors who convert to a desired action: buy, sign-up, download In ecommerce, it refers to the percentage of Visits that convert to Orders Number of Orders ÷ Number of Visits = Conversion Rate (E-commerce) As an example, a website that generated $100,000 of sales through 2,000 orders in a month with 40,000 visits, has an Average Order Value of $50 and Conversion Rate of 5% (which is quite high): $100,000 ÷ 2,000 = $50 AOV 2,000 ÷ 40,000 = 0.05 = 5% CR This means that 5 out of 100 visits turn into an average of $50 revenue This can then be used to project revenue for a campaign aimed at generating another 5,000 visits, in the following manner: Number of Visits × CR × AOV = Projected Revenue 5,000 × 5% × $50 = 250 × $50 = $12,500 Friday, 18 October, 13
