# How Much do Moving Company Leads Cost To count the price of a one moving lead, firstly, we have to understand what is CAC (Customer acquisition cost)

Customer acquisition cost (CAC) is the total amount spent on attracting one new customer.

## Why do you need to calculate CAC?

1. Understand whether efforts to attract customers will be paid off. САС will help you find out how effectively your marketing budget is used.
2. Calculate how efficient a business is. САС helps to understand how productive a company is.
3. Optimize marketing activities. Expensive customers are a signal to review advertising expenses and reduce their costs.

## How to calculate Customer acquisition cost

To calculate the CAC using the following formula:

САС = Sum of all expenses/number of customers managed

Technically, the formula is correct. However, most marketers use the advanced formula to calculate CAC:

To get the most accurate result, calculate CAC separately for each sale channel. This makes it possible to understand which of the channels has the lowest CAC and where specifically it is worth increasing marketing investments: the more of the budget you allocate to the channels with a low cost of customer acquisition, the more users will be acquired without increasing the total cost.

## Example of CAC calculation for Moving Company

To see how the full formula works, we apply it to the example of a local Boston moving company

We accept 0.3(30%) as a coefficient of a successful lead converting to a confirmed customer

To begin, we write down all the initial approximate data for the calculation (for 1 month):

When the list is completed we are able to count the approximate price of the moving lead in Boston using our CAC formula:

Marketing Expenses = 100*\$15 (Ads) + \$0 (SEO) = \$1500

Salaries = \$300 (Ads) + \$600 (SEO) = \$900

MovingCRM = \$200

Total expenses = \$2600

We always have some overhead expenses, so we are adding extra 10% = \$2600 + 10% = \$2860

Then we want to count CAC separately by channel:

Expenses on Moving CRM we are going to count equally spreading to each channel

CAC (100*15+300+125) / 30 = \$64.1

### SEO:

CAC 666 / 30 = \$22.2
