Ad based Startup Sales Projection Template FAQs

What are typical CPM rates for different types of ads?

According to TopDraw, the average CPM rate for online advertising in 2021 was $3.45 compared to over $22 for traditional advertising CPM rates. 

Are CPM rates going up or down?

Business of Apps reports on CPM rates and shows that CPM rates have been on a rocky ride around COVID, but as of April 2022 Facebook CPM rates were at $12.40.  In the last two years Facebook has seen a range in CPMs from $8.80 in March of 2020 up to $17.60 in November of 2021. This should give you some context on a range of CPM rates that you can expect. 

What are examples of successful ad supported startups? 

There are many examples of ad supported businesses.  Some of the largest examples include Google, Facebook, and Twitter.  Of course there are many smaller businesses like podcasts, content websites, newsletters, games, and mobile apps that are ad supported.

Adam did a fantastic job helping my company formulate financial projections. We're going to raise money for our seed round, so the model lays everything out clearly, and we feel confident to pitch investors at this point in time. Not only is the model excellent, but the customer service that Adam and his company have provided is also top-notch. Very quick response times, and even gives live video reviews to major questions that you have. The process of working together side by side to build such an important document has been very pleasant and I look forward to working with Projection Hub as our company grows.
