How to calculate CPM

The formula for CPM is as simple as the concept behind it. Since CPM is cost per thousand impressions, then you simply divide the cost by the number of impressions divided by a thousand. So the CPM formula is CPM = 1000 * cost / impressions. What may interest you more is one of the reversed equations:

  • for cost (how much you'll have to pay): cost = CPM * impressions / 1000
  • for impressions (how many impressions you're going to get, given your budget): impressions = 1000 * cost / CPM
