Internet Marketing Definitions:
Banner ad – Graphics image linked to an advertiser’s website; also known as an “ad banner” or “online ad.”
Cart – Software that keeps track of items web site visitors select for purchase until they proceed to the “checkout” page; the interface between a company’s web site and its infrastructure that allows visitors to select products, review and modify their selections, and purchase. Also referred to as “shopping cart.”
Click-through – Site visitor clicks on a banner ad and is transported to the banner advertiser’s site (landing page); also known as a “click-thru,” “ad click,” or “transfer.”
Conversion rate – Percentage of visitors to a commercial web site taking a desired action (e.g., product purchase, newsletter subscription).
Contribution margin – Selling price of a product less variable costs (cost of goods / materials); contribution margin ratio = (sales – variable costs) / sales. Example: a marketing manager determines that a particular ad vehicle (a banner ad) has a 35% contribution margin. The manager compares that with contribution margins of other vehicles to determine if spending on vehicles should be modified and alternatives explored.
