X writes a free blog post about asset allocation. X's opportunity cost is $500 an hour. The post takes 6 hours to write, generates 10k readers and two new wealth management customers.

What's CPM?

What's CAC for the gross customer additions?

Is X his or her own influencer?

X devotes 1k hours to writing a book on asset allocation. 50k copies are sold at $25 a copy. X generates 100 new wealth management clients due to writing that book. His opportunity cost is $500 an hour (eg one alternative is more vacation).

What is CAC? 

2/ Power law distribution as in another form of content:

"If you sell 20,000 to 25,000 books that would be seen by most publishers as a phenomenal number. In a study of 1,000 business books released in 2009, just 62 of them sold more than 5,000 copies."
