  • CAC: Customer Acquisition Cost is the cost to convert a customer to buy a product/service.
  • LTV: Lifetime Value is the estimated net profit we can make from a customer.
  • PBP: Payback Period in capital budgeting refers to the period of time required to recoup the funds expended in an investment, or to reach the break-even point. An ideal PBP is about 1 year.

  1. 1:1 = lose money the more you sell
  2. 3:1 or better = good.
