  12. 12. The Psychology of Recommendations Does your business miss, meet or exceed expectations on the promise that you communicate? Promoters  Business is exceeding customer expectations and they actively recommend Passives  Business is meeting customer expectations but they are word-of-mouth mutes and may defect Detractors  Business is missing customer expectations and they actively bad mouth the product/service © 2010 Onva Consulting
  13. 13. Missing expectations The danger of not identifying and addressing the reasons for detraction Delivering a word-of-mouth advantage © 2010 Onva Consulting
  14. 14. We also live in the switching generation © 2010 Onva Consulting
  15. 15. The ultimate six pointer in business How long does it take you to win a new customer? How long does it take them to leave? How much time and money do you invest in acquisition? When you have won them, do you focus on them? Or just look for the next new customer? Wouldn’t it be great not having to replace churning customers with new ones? © 2010 Onva Consulting
  16. 16. Why do your customers leave? Percentage Reason 23% Unfair fees or charges 22% Poor product or service quality 19% Rude or disinterested employees 12% Couldn't get hold of anyone to deal with my problem 7% Discounts for new customers but not for existing customers 5% Out of territory call centres 4% Inadequate return or refund policy 1% Inadequate environmental policy © 2010 Onva Consulting
  17. 17. Missing expectation leads to... Creating more Detractors Draining budget  They use costly resources while their issues are being addressed Churning  They will ultimately defect to a rival Generating negative WOM  Negative recommendations make it harder for a brand to attract new customers – thus substantially increasing the cost of operations/cost of customer acquisition.  It is also three times more powerful than positive WOM. Therefore one potential customer upon hearing a bad experience will need four positive recommendations to change their impression/mind © 2010 Onva Consulting
  18. 18. And one bad experience …… © 2010 Onva Consulting
  19. 19. Reducing Detractors while growing Promoters pays off Increasing your Net Promoter score by 12% will deliver your business double the sector growth average Increasing your share of Promoters by 7% will deliver your business 1% growth Reducing your share of detractors by 2% will deliver your business 1% growth If your business has an above average NPS profile in its sector you could see 4x the growth rate * As discovered by the London School of Economics © 2010 Onva Consulting
  20. 20. What can you do to cut churn?  Ask your customers  Use the Net Promoter question to identify the main reasons people may want to leave  Tell them what they told you and what you plan to do about it  Identify the reasons you can deal with profitably  Perhaps stop services that you can’t improve profitably © 2010 Onva Consulting
  21. 21. Your employee recommendability impacts the business If employees are detractors of the customer experience/service that they deliver it is highly likely to create detractors amongst your customers as well. Employee NPS Customer NPS © 2010 Onva Consulting
  22. 22. Exceeding Expectations An opportunity to drive sales and loyalty with your own volunteer salesforce Delivering a word-of-mouth advantage © 2010 Onva Consulting
  23. 23. How do you win new business? Do you know who will buy again? Do you know who will buy new products and services? Do you know who will recommend you? Do you know who will bad mouth you? Do you know which marketing/sales activities bring the best customers? Do you have a strategy for increasing your share of wallet? Are you stimulating conversations online and offline? Can you do this with total certainty? © 2010 Onva Consulting
  24. 24. What can you do to sell smarter?  Segment your customers by Promoter, Passive and Detractor  Develop different approaches for each  Identify the NPS for each product/service, salesman and marketing activity – improve accordingly  Activate Promoters – give them reasons and the platform to recommend  Publish and share customer reviews © 2010 Onva Consulting
  25. 25. How strong is your WOM Balance Sheet? Word-of-Mouth (WOM) is synonymous with recommendations Businesses have a WOM Balance Sheet and the strength of this balance – your recommendability – is the key to your success © 2010 Onva Consulting
