Cost per lead, or CPL, is a marketing term used to measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. It's the average cost incurred to acquire a new potential customer or "lead." It's the amount of money you spend for each person who expresses interest in your product or service as a result of a marketing campaign.
You take the total cost of advertising and promotion and divide it by the number of people who have shown a serious interest, either by buying from your ecommerce site or by signing up to your newsletter to find out more. This figure gives you an idea of the cost of attracting each new lead. Why is this figure so important? Because it gives you a quick overview of the effectiveness of your advertising campaigns. If the cost per lead is low, that's good news! It means you're reaching your target audience without spending a fortune. On the other hand, if the cost is high, it may be time to revise your strategy or look for more effective ways of capturing your audience's attention... It's a thermometer that helps you adjust your plans in real time: it's up to you to consult it regularly to make sure that you're on the right track.
