1. Look into our plans and pricing to see what might best support your B2B service firm.

2. Book a demo to see the experience management platform live in action.

3. Get started with a free survey to gauge client satisfaction for a limited group of client contacts.

NPS research across B2B service industries points to a strong correlation between survey frequency and client satisfaction and loyalty.

How frequently you should survey depends on where your firm is in its CX maturity, whether that’s always on for continuous feedback at key customer milestones, quarterly, semi-annual, or end-of-engagement. Our team will work with you to design a survey cadence that’s right for your firm.

In order to qualify for an industry award or to have client ratings and testimonials populate on your firm’s profile, we require you to survey clients at least once per year.

Contact the ClearlyRated team to discuss pricing for various survey frequencies.

Easy peasy! As soon as you’ve registered to survey with ClearlyRated, we’ll follow up via email with a .csv template showing the fields that are required for your survey contact list.

Once you’ve compiled this information from your internal system into a compatible .csv file, you’ll import your list to your online survey dashboard. Our team provides a second set of eyes to ensure that you’re sending the right survey requests to the right people, every time.

No two organizations are the same, therefore no survey should be the same! Specific survey questions will vary by industry and organization, but all include a Net Promoter® Score question as well specific drivers of client and employee satisfaction.

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:

  1. Promoters are clients who respond to the NPS question with a 9 or 10. They are highly satisfied with your services, and most likely to be actively promoting your firm to their personal and professional networks.
  2. Passives are clients who respond with a 7 or 8. They may be satisfied, but their response demonstrates an indifference to their experience working with your firm. You should not expect passives to be loyal clients, nor should you expect them to promote your firm to others.
  3. Detractors are clients who respond to the NPS question with a 0 through 6. These are your most at-risk clients, and the most likely to share negative feedback about your firm with their networks.

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.


Currently, the following awards are available to North American firms who survey clients with the ClearlyRated methodology and exceed industry standards for service excellence:
