How Much Does Digital Marketing Cost? Marketing Budget Calculator

Digital marketing pricing can be quite complex. Let’s start by taking a look at the marketing cost or budget percentage by industry. A survey by George Boykin of Chron says that the marketing budget can shoot upto 40% of a business’ revenue. However, this is not true for all businesses and all industries, and the right marketing spend depends on a variety of factors. Unfortunately, there’s no easy answer.


What’s in your Marketing Budget vis-a-vis the Industry?

Yes, there are thumb rules for referencing marketing cost,

  1. Percentage of gross revenue – Approximately 5% to 8% of gross revenue
  2. What your industry peers spend – More budget for high ticket, high value products
  3. Competitive sales growth pressures – Check with industry association for figures
  4. Profit margins and similar considerations – Performance pay, task-oriented budgeting
  5. Grow and gain market share – Atleast 10% of gross revenue
