Conversion rate

« Back to Glossary Index

Conversion rate is a vital metric used in marketing and sales to measure the effectiveness of a campaign, strategy, or website in terms of converting visitors or leads into desired actions. It quantifies the percentage of users who take a specific action out of the total number of users who interact with a particular element or offering. Typically, the desired action is a predefined goal, such as making a purchase, signing up for a newsletter, filling out a contact form, or downloading a resource.

The formula to calculate the conversion rate is as follows:

Conversion Rate (%) = (Number of Conversions / Total Number of Visitors or Leads) × 100

Conversion rate is a critical metric for businesses seeking to evaluate the effectiveness of their marketing and sales efforts. By analyzing and optimizing conversion rates, businesses can refine their strategies, enhance user experiences, and drive higher success rates for their goals and objectives.
