Referrals are among the highest compliment a business can get and are a good indicator of future success as the more likely a customer is to recommend your services to others, the more people will be interested in your business. A referral rating, popularly known as a NPS (Net Promoter Score), is considered the leading indicator of growth for a business. Scores range from -100 to 100. Being above 0 is good but being above 50 is considered excellent. Want to learn your Net Promoter Score and discover ways to improve it? Keep reading!
The Importance of Customer Surveys for Your NPS
Surveying customers to get their feedback is a great way to improve your business and ultimately boost your Net Promoter score. Most consumers are open to completing a survey and willing to give you actionable feedback.
One of the questions included in the survey should be: “How likely are you to refer our business?” The answers will reveal how your customers view you and will be a starting point to investigate why one customer will refer you and another won’t. What happened during their interaction with your business to prompt them to answer one way or the other?
Besides getting an answer to this question, you can find out if you met your customer’s expectations and what you could do better. It’s important to pay attention to all results, as happy customers can provide valuable information and may be willing to post their feedback on public review sites. Knowing what to keep doing and what to change helps you improve your NPS over time.
