1. Customer Acquisition Cost

CAC= Sales + Marketing expenses/ Number of New Customers Acquired.

For instance, if you spent $200K on marketing and $100K on sales in a year, and acquired 100 customers in the process, then your CAC is $3000 {(200K+ 100K)/100= 3000}. 

From paid-search to social media, blogs to email marketing, it is pivotal to consider all marketing channels to get a more reliable CAC.
