ROI and ROAS are key campaign performance metrics in Google Ads. Crucial as they relate to financial issues. Want to make sure your advertising is actually profitable? Learn about ROI and ROAS.

ROAS Google Ads

ROAS(Return on Advertising Spend) is the revenue generated by the budget used for an advertising campaign. It allows you to determine how much revenue every penny you put into advertising on Google has generated. Remember, though – this is revenue, and does not take into account the margin or real cost of sales.

ROAS = revenue/cost*100%

If you are using Google Analytics 4 you will find data regarding ROAS in the “Reports” tab. You need to select the Google Ads campaign report – “Return on Advertising Expenditures” in the “Acquisition” section. You can also use custom reports, which you can find in the “Explorations” tab.

In Google Ads, on the other hand, you will find ROAS data in the “Conversion value/cost” column.

Google Ads ROI

More detailed data is provided by ROI(Return On Investment) – the absolute profitability of a campaign. This is an especially important indicator for entrepreneurs investing in advertising.

ROI = net profit/cost*100%

In order to calculate ROI, you need to know data on all the costs associated with sales – from the cost of production, to labor, warehousing and margin.
