Do you know the most important sales metrics, KPIs, and ratios to track? Explore top sales metrics and benchmarks reviewed by industry experts.

Call Volume

Call Volume is the count of both incoming and outgoing calls handled. It can be used to measure the number of incoming calls to a Customer Support organization, outgoing calls from a Sales team, calls queued to an Automatic Call Distribution (ACD) service, and dropped calls. Tracking this metric helps you determine required staffing levels and understand customer behaviour.

Call-in Rate

Call-in Rate is the average number of inbound calls received per paid user of a product or service. It is used to monitor changes in call volumes, which can be an early warning sign of product or service issues, and even potential churn.

Contact to Customer Conversion Rate

Contact to Customer Conversion Rate is the percentage of contacts that have converted to sales. Contacts can be past or existing customers, or qualified leads. This is an important metric to track in the sales funnel because it quantifies how efficiently the sales process secures and grows existing customer relationships.


Contacts are individual people that the business has a relationship with, often associated with an account. In many Customer Relationship Management Systems (CRMs), such as HubSpot and Salesforce, Contacts are associated with qualified opportunities, existing customers, or past customers. Leads are usually not counted as Contacts.

Cost Of Goods Sold

The Cost Of Goods Sold (COGS) is the measure of direct costs incurred by a company to manufacture or deliver their product or service. Costs typically include raw material and direct labour, but this varies from business to business, depending on the products or services that are being sold. COGS is the building block to understanding Gross Margin and Gross Margin Percent.

Customer Effort Score

Customer Effort Score (CES) is a measure of how easy or difficult it is for customers to interact with your company, for example, to make a purchase, to access a free trial, to resolve a problem, to navigate your website, or to get something done in your product. It’s measured by surveying customers after a specific interaction, and asking them to rate how easy or difficult it was to do what they wanted to do. Examples of difficult or high-effort interactions are ones that add friction for customers, for example, making them repeat information, interact with multiple people or screens, or wade through generic content to find information relevant to them.

DAU/MAU Ratio (Daily Active Users to Monthly Active Users ratio) measures how active monthly users are on a daily basis. In other words, this engagement metric measures the number of days in each month that users performed an activity that qualifies them as active users. A higher DAU/MAU Ratio generally indicates high stickiness, meaning users consistently return to the app.
