Digital Marketing KPI Example - Lead Conversion Rate Metric

What is Lead Conversion Rate?

Lead Conversion Rate is a metric used to measure the effectiveness of a business's marketing and sales efforts in converting leads into customers. It calculates the percentage of leads that take the desired action, such as making a purchase, signing up for a service, or becoming a paying client.

Lead Conversion Rate Formula

Lead Conversion Rate = (Number of leads converted to customers) / (Total number of leads generated) x 100

For example, if a company generated 500 leads during a specific period and 50 of them became customers, the lead conversion rate would be:

Lead Conversion Rate = (50 / 500) x 100 = 10%

Reporting frequency


Why is Lead Conversion Rate Important?
