  • 2. In these difficult times of limited budgets, many managers ask, "Is the amount spent oncustomer satisfaction and loyalty measurement programs really worth it?" The answer is "No"- unless these programs deliver the knowledge you need to attract, retain and increasebusiness with your customers.Six Sigma and other silver-bullet programs that rely heavily on satisfaction metrics wont helpunless they focus on driving desirable customer behaviors.To be successful, customer satisfaction and loyalty measurement programs must do sixthings. 2 Compiled by: Deep Banerjee, Marketingpundit.com (6 steps to improving Customer Satisfaction & Loyalty)
  • 3. Listen to the voice of the customer:Go beyond a single, all-purpose survey. To get the customer knowledge you need, you mustuse multiple listening posts that gauge satisfaction and loyalty at multiple levels - that takethe pulse of the overall relationship, as well as the day-to-day transactions. The best listeners,moreover, include all stakeholders, from customer decision-makers, to customer end-users, tochannel partners, to employees.The listening process must capture and evaluate appropriate product, service, cost and imagefactors that may affect customer behavior. While many company executives and managersbelieve that they know and can articulate these factors, it is easy to get off track with thisinside-out view. You need to hear directly from customers in their own words, and not rely oninternal jargon that may be meaningless to them. Only customers can tell you what drivestheir satisfaction, loyalty and value perceptions. 3 Compiled by: Deep Banerjee, Marketingpundit.com (6 steps to improving Customer Satisfaction & Loyalty)
  • 4. Focus on core requirements to establish priorities for change:The goal of loyalty and satisfaction measurement programs is to change customer behaviors -to get them to be loyal, to buy more, to become an advocate and so on. To accomplish this,you need to change how you serve your customers. Set priorities and focus on those keyproduct and service elements that have the greatest effect on satisfaction and loyalty.Research has shown different items have different effects on satisfaction and loyalty. Certainelements are so-called key dissatisfiers, where not meeting expectations will cause overalldissatisfaction but exceeding expectations will not necessarily lead to customer delight. Otheritems are key enhancers, where exceeding expectations will improve customer satisfaction,but not delivering on them has little effect on dissatisfaction.The first priority for change must be to fix any key dissatisfiers where you are not meetingcustomer expectations. Only after you meet those requirements can you strengthen loyalty bybuilding the key enhancers, the elements that surprise and delight. 4 Compiled by: Deep Banerjee, Marketingpundit.com (6 steps to improving Customer Satisfaction & Loyalty)
  • 5. Link customer feedback to internal processes:Management teams must examine customer survey results in light of any existing operationalor transaction metrics available.You must define the specific internal processes that touch areas that deliver value to yourcustomers.Analytical models can validate and link these internal process measures to your satisfactionsurvey results; then you can frequently track and act on the few critical internal metrics thatare leading indicators of customer satisfaction and loyalty. 5 Compiled by: Deep Banerjee, Marketingpundit.com (6 steps to improving Customer Satisfaction & Loyalty)
  • 6. Make change happen:The best measurement programs are useless unless they trigger appropriate operational andpolicy changes.Satisfaction and loyalty measurement programs must include processes for prioritizingchanges, developing action plans and metrics, and ensuring that improvements are made.Deployment and action-planning workshops with key business stakeholders are good tools touse to clarify findings and help the learning process throughout the organization. 6 Compiled by: Deep Banerjee, Marketingpundit.com (6 steps to improving Customer Satisfaction & Loyalty)
  • 7. Use all the information available:Satisfaction data cannot stand alone; it must be integrated with other information you have inyour customer and operational databases.For example, analytic models can calibrate survey loyalty measures with actual retention andattrition data, providing a great payoff: Showing how an improvement in survey resultsreduces churn is a great management tool.You can use these models to predict which types of customers are at risk of leaving and todirect your customer acquisition and retention efforts. 7 Compiled by: Deep Banerjee, Marketingpundit.com (6 steps to improving Customer Satisfaction & Loyalty)
  • 8. Incorporate ROI:Because top management cares most about bottom-line results, you must link improvementsin survey results to profits. A good way to do this is to use advanced analytic techniques tomodel how customer lifetime value varies with satisfaction and loyalty measures. This way,you can determine the return, in hard dollars, on programs that improve customerrelationships. 8 Compiled by: Deep Banerjee, Marketingpundit.com (6 steps to improving Customer Satisfaction & Loyalty)
  • 9. If a company is investing in customer satisfaction and loyalty measurement programs it needsto evaluate programs on each of these six principles, which help transform measurementprograms from just another cost of doing business to drivers of growth and profit.The bottom line is that measurement programs must demonstrate that they pay off withimproved financial results by creating more satisfied and more loyal customers. 9 Compiled by: Deep Banerjee, Marketingpundit.com (6 steps to improving Customer Satisfaction & Loyalty)
