What is a CPM Calculator?

A CPM Calculator is a tool that helps advertisers and marketers determine the cost-per-mille (CPM) of their advertising campaigns. CPM represents the cost of 1,000 ad impressions and is a common pricing model in the advertising industry. By using a CPM Calculator, users can input various parameters such as total ad spend, number of impressions, or desired CPM to calculate the other values and optimize their advertising strategies.
