How does one calculate NPS?
To calculate the NPS of an organization or a product, one would detract the percentage of detractors from the percentage of promoters. This will result in a score of the total customer experience between -100 and 100.
When the receiver has answered the question, they are given the opportunity to elaborate on their response. Essential to this, the response rate and relevance for the comment, is that the follow-up question is related to the actual rating.
- What could we have done better?
- What does it take to reach a 10?
- What is the reason for your positive rating?
By giving the respondents the opportunity to elaborate on their answers you are not affecting the response but will receive the tool to understand the reasons for the respondent’s answer. This means that you do not have to ask more questions, as the respondents will tell you what is most important to them.
This is the core of the NPS-method. Only asking questions on the premises of the receiver instead of a series of questions that the sender thinks is important. We give the respondent the opportunity to share exactly what is important for them.
Customer Experience Management with the NPS method
NPS can do more than just measure customer loyalty. It is also an effective method of measuring and acting based on customer experiences.
By reformulating the question, a bit, you can adapt it to all your company’s touchpoints. This allows you to use the same method across the entire organization, from customer service, sales, delivery or in your marketing.
Here you get the respondent’s primary input for the specific experience. Instead of asking your customer a variety of questions about their experiences once a year that they may not find essential, ask your questions in the current situation. Thus, the question has greater relevance to the recipient, and you get the answer while you still have an opportunity to act on it.
With nps.today you can combine satisfactory and loyalty measurements in one total solution based on the NPS-method. Furthermore, you can ask the NPS-question, and the specific questions that you need to ask, in every transaction, touchpoint, and channel throughout the customer experience.
