What are the most important business metrics to measure?

Knowing how to track and interpret your business metrics can feel overwhelming. There are so many numbers, statistics, and reports that the most important figures and facts can get lost in the mix. 

So how do you know what to focus on?

Profit is arguably the most important metric. It indicates, bottom line, if you’re making money or losing money. But to fully understand what it means, you need to understand the elements that go into it. Let’s call it a profit puzzle.

Some of the key pieces of the puzzle are:

  • Revenue from sales

  • Expenses like rent, payroll, taxes, etc.

  • Cost of goods sold

  • Sales and order value

These numbers will tell your business’ story and help you understand which areas are disproportionately high or low. Depending on your specific business goals, you can tweak these numbers to make the pieces of the puzzle fall into place.
