Benefits of Net Promoter Score®

From gauging customer sentiment and tracking how it changes over time, to helping you to better benchmark your performance against competitors or measure your likelihood of gaining repeat business, the benefits of running NPS® Surveys can be wide ranging.

But for NPS to be truly useful you need to be clear from the outset about what you should be asking, understand the Net Promoter Score calculation, and become familiar with exactly what constitutes a good NPS score. Do this and you’ll gain the greatest value from running your own measurements.

What is Net Promoter Score?

Essentially NPS is a standardised metric, which you can use to measure how happy customers are with your business.

It’s based on the idea that the most important indicator of a customer’s satisfaction with your company, service or product is whether they will recommend it to a friend, a family member, or a colleague. The advantages that spin out of measuring such a metric are multiple.

The many benefits of NPS

Ultimately the more insight you have about what customers think of your business, products and services, the more – and more useful – information you’ll have available to take positive actions. It’s why the benefits of NPS are so wide ranging.

Think of NPS as a growth indicator, essentially a customer satisfaction metric that you can use to your advantage to find out:

  • How satisfied consumers are with your products/services.
  • How loyal they are to your brand.
  • How likely they will be to recommend your company to others.

If your organisation runs regular customer surveys, whether that’s customer satisfaction surveys, customer service surveys, or any other type, collecting NPS data, whether that turns out to be a good or bad NPS can be extremely useful in informing the future actions you need to take.

For example, if you ran an NPS survey as part of a wider customer satisfaction project and it revealed a healthy number of promoters, you could use this to help inform future sales, with increased confidence that your customers would buy from you again.

A great NPS example can be provided by one of our case studies, which highlights the work that our client IKEA did to better engage and improve their customers’ satisfaction levels. Following the deployment of their strategy IKEA’s Net Promoter Score jumped from 25 to 70.

Similarly, even if you got a bad score, you’d have the advantage of turning this into a positive by using this valuable insight to inform you about what areas of your business you need to change and improve.
