Businesses utilizing analytics are not just gaining a competitive advantage but also positioning themselves for greater success. However, most organizations fail to identify the right KPIs. This blog post will cover the list of major KPIs and map them to the relevant business types.

Let’s get started.

  • Leads
  • Visits
  • Exit Rate
  • Conversion
  • Time Spent
  • Post Bounce Rate
  • Total Revenue
  • Subscriptions
  • Traffic Source of Comments
  • Order Size
  • Top Viewed Posts of New Blogs
    • Product similarity
    • Most Visitors Time
    • Social Media Shares
    • Views Per Post
    • Campaign Performance
    • Sales by Time Period
    • Cart abandonment rate
    • New Vs Repeat Visitors
    • ROI (Return on Investment)
