Calculate your Return on Investment

Advertising in Dubai & Return on Investment – ROI

Advertising in Dubai & Return on Investment - ROI

Your ROI can be calculated as revenue from sales, minus advertising costs, all divided by the cost of advertising. To express ROI as a percentage, you multiply the result of this formula by 100.

ROI Calculation Formula

((Sales – Cost) /  Cost) x 100 = ROI


How much you pay for advertising on a famous newspaper, magazine or yellow pages?

  • Lets say you pay AED 1000 and the result is you get 100 calls or leads.
  • 10 of those leads become customers, and each customer provides an average revenue of AED 120.
  • This means the value of each lead is AED 12 (AED 1200 revenue/100 leads)
  • ROI =  20% (AED 1200 revenue – AED 1000 ad spent)/AED 1000 advertising cost) x 100.
  • Here’s the formula used in this example: (Revenue – Costs)/Costs) x 100 = ROI %
  • If your ROI is negative that means your ad spend is higher than your revenue.
