NPS is more than just a number! 

It gives you opportunities for improvements, reduces customer churn, boosts loyalty, gauges customer happiness, and does a lot more.  

While businesses are chasing to boost their NPS score, they’ve forgotten that it’s not just about the score but also what comes with the process.

Here’s a quick brief on the Net Promoter Score

What is NPS? – a quick brief

Net Promoter Score (NPS) is a relationship metric that measures customers’ loyalty over time. Its index ranges from -100 to 100 which indicates if your customers are going to recommend your business/brand to acquaintances by asking one simple question.

But this is not complete in itself. 

Ask an open-ended question followed by the loyalty question to know the reason behind the given score. 

For instance, if the customer has given you a 9 score then you can ask:
