Sales VelocityFeedback.png


Sales Velocity is a term describing the rate at which dollars or units pass through in a given time (basically, sales divided by distribution) and measures how well a brand sells when it is available. Two major velocity measures are "sales per point of distribution (SPPD)" and "sales per million (sales per $MM ACV)."[1]


      Sales per point of distribution ($) = Sales ($) ÷ % ACV distribution
      Sales per million ($) = Sales ($) ÷ [% ACV distribution x (Market ACV ÷ 1,000,000)]
