A marketing metric is a measuring system that quantifies a trend, dynamic, or characteristic. Often a metric is obtained by taking two or more measurements to create a value.
In virtually all disciplines, practitioners use metrics to explain phenomena, diagnose causes, share findings, and project the results of future events.
