CPC, Cost Per Click:
This is the cost of each click and ad received. It is mainly used on advertising platforms such as Facebook Ads and LinkedIn Ads.
CPM, Cost Per Thousand:
It represents the cost to purchase 1000 ad impressions.
CPA, Cost Per Action:
It can refer both to a basis of purchase as in the advertiser pays to receive a specific action, as well as a way to analyze the cost of an advertising investment in terms of actions generated by the campaign.
CTR, Click Through Rate:
This is the number of clicks your ad receives divided by the number of times it is shown, presented in a percentage format. It is one of the most indicative factors of the effectiveness of a campaign, and therefore will allow you to optimize future ads accordingly.
ROAS, Return On Ad Spent:
It refers to the measurement of the return on investment of an advertising expenditure. It is most often expressed in terms of revenue or percentage. For example, if your ad spend was $100 and the revenue it generated was also $100, then the ROAS for that campaign is 1.
PCC, Pay Per Click:
The use of the acronym PPC is gradually decreasing over time. It refers to paid search advertising purchases made on Google Ads (originally Google AdWords) and Bing Ads platforms, which can also be referred to as “Paid Search”. It is therefore only used to describe campaigns with the objective of cost per click on search engines. On the contrary, the term CPC is used to describe advertising placements using cost per click as an objective, on all other platforms.
