Net Promoter Score Driver Analysis


The NPS is used to measure customer loyalty and is an indicator of customer satisfaction. Customer satisfaction and the ability to meet customer expectations are the most important NPS key drivers, i.e. key indicators that can drive your Net Promoter Score upwards.

What is the Net Promoter Score

The Net Promoter Score (NPS) has become so popular that it doesn't really need to be explained. The question “Would you recommend our company to friends and acquaintances” is basically encountered today after almost every online purchase or online contract conclusion. In addition, the NPS is part of every customer survey. The NPS measures the willingness of your customers to recommend them on a scale of 1-10. Those of your customers who give 10 or 9 points are extremely satisfied with the company and the products and will pass this on. Those who give 7 or 8 points to the NPS question are more neutral about your company and your products. Anything less than 7 points is dangerous. Because these customers are deeply dissatisfied and tell others about it! Worst of all, these customers tend to leave! As you can see, the Net Promoter Score is a valuable indicator of customer satisfaction. And that's why you should always keep an eye on your NPS value.
