Return on Ad Spend (ROAS) is a crucial metric to understand in pay-per-click management. The ROAS formula tells advertisers how much they have spent in total (CPA) and what percent earned back from that investment in terms of conversions and sales. A positive ROAS means more profit than cost, whereas a negative ROAS means that more money was spent than the marketer made back.
