    Hi @Bharat !

    According to me, revenue is the most important metric when it comes to starting a business. But there are many such metrics which are to be considered for consistently growing your business.

    I came across this article by Neil Patel, where he explained about the top 9 business metrics to focus on.

      The Life Time Value(LTV) metric, is all about how much you expect to earn from a customer during the time they are with your company.

      As in equation:

      No. of months a customer stays with you

      x

      Monthly revenue you expect from that customer

      = LTV

    Hi @Bharat, Answering to your question.. if your startup is in initial stages, I recommend you to tract these 5 Metrics:

    1. Customer Acquisition Cost( CAC)

    2. Retention Rate

    3. Customer Life time revenue(CLR)

    4. Return on Advertising Spending(ROAS)

    5. Margin

        Sure.

        Margin here refers to the gross margins which determine your operating profitability. You should research about how much gross margin is typical for your industry. Gross margins are also a key indicator of the performance of management, sales, and customer teams. So, measuring this metric is important for newly established startups.
