WABAN, Mass., June 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Temkin Group released a new research report "Economics of Net Promoter, 2015" based on a study of 10,000 U.S. consumers.
Net Promoter® Score (NPS®) has become a popular customer experience metric. NPS classifies customers into one of three categories—promoters, passives, and detractors—based on their likelihood to recommend the company to friends and colleagues. This research found a very high correlation between NPS and customer loyalty across 20 industries.
When compared with detractors, promoters (those who are the most likely to recommend) are five times as likely to repurchase from companies, almost six times as likely to forgive companies if they make a mistake, and almost eight times as likely to try new offerings from companies.
"Net Promoter Score identifies segments of customers who have distinctly different levels of loyalty, with promoters being the most loyal group by far," states Bruce Temkin, Managing Partner of Temkin Group.
Here are some additional findings from the research:
- The difference between the likelihood of promoters to repurchase from a company and detractors to repurchase from a company ranges from 78 percentage-points for computer & tablet makers down to 60 percentage-points for supermarkets.
- The difference between the likelihood of promoters to forgive a company and detractors to forgive a company ranges from 62 percentage-points for computer and tablet makers down to 46 percentage-points for airlines.
- The difference between promoters' appetite for new products and detractors' appetite for new products ranges from 59 percentage-points for rental car agencies down to 48 points for both banks and parcel delivery services.
- The difference between promoters' recommendation rate and detractors' recommendation rate ranges from 46 percentage-points for TV service providers down to 29 percentage-points for parcel delivery services.
The report includes loyalty levels for promoters, passives, and detractors across 20 industries: airlines, auto dealers, banks, computer makers, credit card issuers, fast food chains, grocery chains, health plans, hotel chains, insurance carriers, Internet service providers, investment firms, major appliance makers, parcel delivery services, rental car agencies, retailers, software firms, TV service providers, utilities, and wireless carriers.
