You started, or are starting, an ecommerce business and you need to understand how to forecast, plan, and analyze for the growth and cash needs of the business.
We will unpack and build models to forecast the building blocks and key metrics of ecommerce businesses.
How to model growth and conversion
We will cover how to build a growth and conversion forecast, understanding how to model organic and paid acquisition methods across a variety of channels, and how to use a conversion rate to model new customers and orders.
How to model orders and customers
Using our growth and conversion forecast, learn how to use that to model typical ecommerce metrics including new and repeat customers, orders, average order value, and per product sales. We'll cover typical methods for creating this forecast, including using cohort-based data.
How to model revenues, cost of sales, and inventories
We'll cover how to use the customer and order forecast to build a revenue forecast for a variety of ecommerce businesses. We will also cover modeling cost of sales and inventories, and how to use key performance indicators to understand ecommerce.
The three hour workshop is structured to be an overview of the essentials to modeling venture funds, with questions and interactions throughout.

The Standard Financial Model is the base of all the financial models built for forecasting businesses, and it is built to natively support SaaS, Ecommerce, Marketplaces, Advertising, Hardware, and many other business models.
The financial core contains all the details and reports necessary to build and present your financial model to executives and investors and make significant business decisions. The growth and revenue forecasts are prebuilt using the "one size fits all" approach, but the model also offers the Bring Your Own Model functionality to let use build or use your own revenue model with the financial core in the Standard.
Taylor Davidson, Founder, Foresight
I created the financial models behind Foresight so early-stage entrepreneurs can spend less time on finance and more time on their products. I care about financial modeling because I believe that financial models can help us make critical business decisions even if the models themselves are not “always right”. Financial models can help even the earliest entrepreneurs if we build “minimum viable models” to focus on the decisions that matter most.
