To find the beneficial campaign type for the advertiser, we need to calculate the total cost for each campaign type.

From the given question we get below information,

Total Impression = 1,000,000

CPM = $8

CPC = 0.8

CTR = 5%

**Cost Calculation For CPM Type Campaign : **

Total Impression = 1,000,000

CPM =$8

We can calculate the total cost by the simple formula Cost = Total Impressions/1000*CPM Rate

Total Cost = 1000000/1000*8

**Total Cost = $8000**

**Cost Calculation For CPC Type Campaign : **

To calculate the cost for the CPC type campaign, we need to find the total clicks. Here, we have the total impressions and CTR details. From these two values, we can easily calculate the total clicks.

Total Clicks = Total Impressions * CTR

Total Clicks = 1,000,000 * 5%

**Total Clicks = 50000**

The given CPC is $0.8. So, we can calculate the total cost below,

Total Cost = Total Clicks * CPC

Tota Cost = 50000 * 0.8

Total Cost = $40000

## Which campaign type is beneficial?

We have calculated the total cost for each campaign type,

Total Cost For CPM Type Campaign: $8000

Total Cost For CPC Type Campaign: $40000

The total cost for a CPM type campaign is low compared with the total cost for a CPC type campaign. As per the given scenario, the **CPM campaign type will be more beneficial for the advertiser.**

The numbers in the scenario may differ. So, before answering this question please do the above calculation. Based on the result decide the beneficial campaign type for the advertiser.

Let’s consider, the CTR in the above scenario is 0.3% the entire answer will differ.

Total Clicks = Total Impression * CTR

Total Clicks = 1,000,000 * 0.3%

**Total Clicks = 3000**

Total Cost = Total Clicks * CPC

Total Cost = 3000*0.8

Total Cost = $2400

Total Cost For CPM Type Campaign: $8000

Total Cost For CPC Type Campaign: $2400

In this scenario, the CPC campaign type will be more beneficial to the advertiser.
