Madness in metrics
Wed, May 05, 2021
The Net Promoter Score (NPS) is supposedly the best marketing metric.
But the image below offers great insights into why we need to rethink the NPS metric.
While it has many great advantages, that metric can get messed up when:
- Customers are asked without context: No one has intentional conversations about promoting offerings on a daily/frequent basis. Customers promote offerings only when certain conversations take them there.
- Customers are asked after a customer support resolution: When things go south, the customer will be livid. If the support team resolves the issue and then you ask for the NPS, of course, the customer will give you a high score. But if you ask after the incident, they’d give you a lower score.
And no one asks the customers about the NPS during or after the incident and before the resolution.
Include multiple qualitative questions whenever you ask about the NPS to really understand the customer’s context.
