Return on Investment (ROI)
Return on investment (ROI) or return on costs (ROC) is a ratio between net income (over a period) and investment (costs resulting from an investment of some resources at a point in time).
A high ROI means the investmentʼs gains compare favorably to its cost. As a performance measure, ROI is used to evaluate the efficiency of an investment or to compare the efficiencies of several different investments.
As in financial investing, ROI in web development is the return you see from your investment of time, money, and effort to build a website or web application.
