# Correct math for Margin + ROI in Net Marketing?

2 replies
• |
Dear Warriors,

Supposedly I earned \$6971.70 in net marketing sales in 2016.

And the cost (i.e. Purchases + Fees) was \$1021.26.

Resulting in a net profit of \$5950.44.

Thus the margin would be net / sales resulting in:

\$5950.44 / \$6971.70 = 85% margin.

And the ROI% would be net / cost resulting in:

\$5950.44 / \$1021.26 = 583%

I want to make sure if the math + term were correct before stating the stats out there.

I'd appreciate it. Thanks in advance!

• I prefer to express the roi in a per dollar basis, instead of a percentage. This means that your roi is \$5.83 for every dollar you spend (which is HUGE)
