What is the Net Promoter Score?

The NPS, or Net Promoter Score, is a performance indicator that measures the propensity of your customers to recommend your business to relatives and colleagues. The NPS was theorised by Fred Reichheld and Bain & Company in 2003.

The results of the study by Fred Reichheld demonstrate a correlation between the NPS and the growth of a business. Organisations that have a high Net Promoter Score grow 2 to 4 times faster than their competitors!

The NPS system seeks to measure not just customer satisfaction, but it gauges whether customers like your company so much that they'd tell their friends about it. It does this by asking one core question.

The first question of the NPS is a graded rating which does not tell us: "Why would you not recommend my company?" or "How can I convince you to do so?".

So we have improved the basic NPS by adding an open-ended question: this second question lets you collect feedbacks which will tell you more about the Customer Experience. By identifying your Detractors, you will be able to meet their discontent and then close the loop.

How is the NPS calculated?

This score is obtained by the answers your customers give to a standard question:
"On a scale of 0-10, how likely is it that you would recommend our company/product/service to a friend or colleague?"

According to the given rating, the respondent is then classified into one of these three categories:

Detractors, Passives and Promoters

Detractors are slowing down your business and your revenue growth.
Passives are satisfied with your company/product/service but they wouldn't particularly recommend you.
Promoters are delighted with their Customer Experience. You have made a difference against a competitor. They will recommend you to their family... or share their experience on their Facebook wall!

The NPS is calculated by % of promoters LESS % of detractors. The score ranges between +100 and -100. Generally a score above 0 is positive. For example, the NPS average of the companies in the USA is 15.

A Net Promoter Score above 50 is excellent (Apple and Amazon have a NPS around 60).
