Model Summary

If you want to enter the number of units you expect to sell, along with the price for each, choose the Unit sales revenue stream model, and Upmetrics will calculate the totals automatically.

For Instance, if you are projecting 100 products per month, that means you are also forecasting 100 sales per month (other revenue models work differently, so please refer to the appropriate model for additional details).

Keep in mind that how you define a 'unit' depends on what you sell. If you offer gadgets, just enter the quantity of those gadgets (mobile phones or computers or whatever) you think you'll sell. For other offerings, you might want to use 'units' to mean consulting engagements or fixed-price contracts or pallets of low-value materials. Do what makes sense for your business.
