ClearlyRated helps B2B firms credibly differentiate themselves based on their service.
Net Promoter® Score (NPS® for short) is a simple metric based on a survey question that asks your clients how likely they are to recommend your firm to a friend or colleague on a numeric scale of 0 - 10; ten being extremely likely and zero being not likely at all.
Responses to the Net Promoter Score question are divided into three categories:
Your firm's "score" is calculated by subtracting the % of detractors from the % of promoters in your respondent set. By way of example, ClearlyRated's lifetime NPS score is 84%, which is derived from the 86% of promoters across our company survey history minus the 2% detractors across our company survey history.
86% - 2% = 84% NPS. Easy peasy.
