For all businesses, eCommerce or not, there is a lot of data available to us these days. We’ve so many tools to help us grow our websites, improve our sales, track employees holidays and so on and so on. One way of filtering through all the data is by using key performance indicators (KPIs). KPIs are metrics directly related to your business objectives and goals, and by measuring them you can keep track of how well you’re performing against each goal.

Before you can choose your KPIs, you need to have a good idea of your business goals, you need to decide which KPI is most relevant to your business and your goal. E.g. Goal: Increase Loyal Customers = KPI: # of Returning Users.
