Keeping customers happy and satisfied is a pursuit that goes back as far as business itself. As business landscapes evolve, the challenges companies face to keep customers engaged and the tactics to keep customers happy and satisfied evolve too. Neglecting to notice signs that your customers aren’t getting what they want can cause formerly loyal customers to switch brands. In fact, a recent research shows that around 80% of customers mentioned that they have turned to other brands because of poor customer experience, and 43% of respondents are likely to opt for other brands after only a single negative customer service interaction. In fact, U.S. companies risk losing $1.9 trillion in consumer spending every year because of poor customer experiences. Explore the potential of your business with the NPS Framework, driving customer success, growth, and loyalty seamlessly.
Therefore, it’s crucial to enhance the customer experience at each touchpoint and during every transaction they encounter.
Net Promoter Score: Elevate CSM (Customer Service Management)
Your customers are an essential part of your business, but how can one know what customers are thinking? Most customers won’t answer the phone and tell you their feelings without being asked. That’s why many enterprise look to automated surveys, sent at the right time to know the pulse of consumers.
One of the most well-known survey metrics in vogue today is the NPS (Net Promoter Score).
In the NPS survey, customers are asked to answer (on a scale of 1-10) about the chances of them suggesting certain products or services to friends, family, or colleagues. Based on the data and customer feedback, the companies can then generate an aggregate score that offers a view of what their customers are thinking and the overall health of the customer.
In today’s digitally interconnected world, where customer opinions can influence brand perception with a single online review, NPS carries the power to shape reputations and impact bottom lines. It can help businesses elevate their customer relationships, streamline operations, and position themselves as leaders in their respective domains.
NPS provides a standardized means of assessing customer sentiment and simplifies the complex spectrum of consumer opinions into a single number. Based on the score, they are placed in one of the following three categories: Promoter (9-10), Passives (7 or 8) and Detractors (between 0 to 6). This numerical representation acts as a compass, guiding decision-makers to take targeted actions based on the feedback received.
NPS Actionable Methodology
NPS methodology primarily gauges customer loyalty to a company or brand. With effective NPS framework companies can get the “churn rate,” indicating the possibility of subscription cancellations or non-repurchase and holds significance as retaining customers is more cost-effective than acquiring new ones. No amount of advertising can ever do more for your business than customers’ heartfelt recommendations of your brand, so it’s only natural one would be determined to keep your NPS scores high. However, as practical as it is, customer NPS will only take you that far. You need to go into the depth of the data to attribute meaning to your scores.
Here’s a methodology step-by-step that businesses can follow:
