There’s something appealing about one score having so much meaning behind it.
A Net Promoter Score (NPS) program is the leading indicator of growth for a business and can be based on a single question: How likely are you to recommend our company/product/service to a friend or colleague?

In this post we are taking a step further by exploring how a combined NPS and media data analysis can give your business a holistic view of the overall sentiment towards your organisation.

Aside from its ease to implement, its appeal is two fold -  it’s attractive for the user to answer one question and it's easy for the business to calculate and measure the results. 

As Frederick F. Reichheld wrote in his Harvard Business Review, titled ‘The one number you need to grow’ having a useful metric to measure customer loyalty is a good indicator of business growth. The path to sustainable, profitable growth begins with creating more promoters and fewer detractors and making your net-promoter number transparent throughout your business. Obtaining feedback is key to success for a customer centric business.
Interestingly, statistics show every hour spent calling detractors generates more than $1000 in revenue. Businesses have leveraged NPS in boosting sales: with sales increasing by 20% when converting a detractor to a passive, and by 26% when converting a passive to a promoter.

Understanding the Net Promoter Score

An NPS score is calculated by subtracting the percentage of detractors from the percentage of promoters. This score can then be compared to that of similar businesses as a reliable benchmark.

“Promoter” customers are enthusiastic and loyal, who will continue to buy from the business and ‘promote’ your business to others. With your promoters, tailor your marketing efforts and send them specialised promotions to continue their loyalty.

“Passive” customers are happy but can easily be tempted to leave by an attractive competitor deal. Passive customers have the ability to become promoters if your products, service their customer experience are improved.

“Detractor” customers are unhappy with your product, service or customer experience, they will either cancel their dealings with you or reduce the amount they purchase from you. With the information and feedback provided by this group of people, not only use it to try to win them back as a customer, but also use it to identify and empower your biggest promoters.

5 benefits of NPS

  1. It's reputation

NPS is a good measure of customer satisfaction for reasons such as simplicity, executive understanding or availability of external benchmarks.

2. Known as a good indicator of business growth

Each response on an NPS survey indicates either loyalty and expansion in the future or the risk of churn. A customer who responds with a 4 is at a much higher risk of cancelling than a customer who responds with an 8. If a risk percentage is assigned to each number, the impact on future growth and churn can be predicted.

3. Relevance

NPS is a measure of your whole business as its a KPI that is relevant to everyone, not just a particular team or department.

A strong NPS reflects that your business is performing well - from account management to your products, marketing and customer experience. Alternatively, a low score could indicate there are a few minor issues that need addressing and by introducing one or two additional questions to the survey can be valuable to capture this information.

4. Easy to benchmark against competitors

As it is a universally recognised survey, it is easy to benchmark against your competitors and track your business progress against your industry. 

5. Measure loyalty

Surveying your customers at least twice a year will allow you to get their latest sentiment toward your business and enable you to identify trends and track business performance over time. You can also track how different local and global teams are tracking against each other. Asking your customers to rate their experiences offers a deeper view of customer sentiment and enables quick learning and action.

Combining forces

NPS enables your business to get invaluable voluntary feedback on all aspects of your business from a sample of your customers multiple times a year, in real time. Combining NPS with media data can provide for a powerful outcome. It provides the ability to action insights faster with the visual aid of dashboards, word clouds, top voices in the media and automated sentiment - indicating if media mentions about your business are positive, neutral or negative. 

By seeking information from multiple sources, you can listen, learn and find tools that separate real insights from background noise, sense check benchmarks and get a firm grasp of your competitors, influencers and the current landscape. All these elements help provide endless possibilities for your business.

Combining media data and NPS also enables you to observe patterns and correlations that might exist between what is being said about your business throughout the media and the likelihood that your customers will promote your business to others. By recognising trends and correlations between broad social sentiment can help inform your social media, marketing and PR strategies.

Media Monitoring is more than just a buzz word 

There are many common misconceptions about media monitoring that need to be cleared up sooner rather than later to give your brand the best chance of positive PR. Rather than letting your company succumb to the myths and misinformation being spread around, here are three of the most prevalent misunderstandings and the fact behind the fiction:

There's more to media monitoring than the digital platforms.

Myth #1 - You only need digital

While digital platforms are becoming more important to media monitoring, this is by no means the only area you need to be covering. Tweets, online newspapers and blogs are of course crucial, but so too are traditional media options, like local newspapers, talkback radio and other offline sources.

In fact, the best way to approach your media monitoring strategy is to accept that digital and traditional media are commonly connected, rather than separate features. For instance, social is often used as an extension to broadcast offerings, according to a study from Nielsen.

Here at Isentia, we understand that all platforms are important. No matter how small. 

Myth #2 - Only the big publications matter

For many companies, getting the brand name or products mentioned on a national radio show or published in a country-wide newspaper can mean a big break. Alternatively, a negative story across these major platforms could result in a significant blow to your reputation and profitability.

It is clear, then, that keeping tabs on the big media players is crucial. However, while some media monitoring providers will focus on national newspapers, big brand radio shows and other major publications, these strategies could be missing an important element.

National publications can give you a clear picture of what millions of consumers are reading, thinking and discussing, but this is unlikely to give you much information on what the local people believe.

If your business operates in a rural or remote location, you need to be tracking the local publications.

If your business operates in a rural or remote location, you need to be tracking the local publications - no matter how small. Similarly, even newspapers circulating in smaller parts of big cities can provide a significant level of insight, if only you are aware of their readership and content.

Myth #3 - Listening is the most important part

While media monitoring is critical for business success, listening to the conversations about your brand and industry is far from the be-all and end-all to your strategies.

Once you have uncovered a relevant story or discussion, it's not enough to simply stand idly by and learn from the experience. Taking the next step involves getting an insightful and useable report, deciding on relevant and effective action and getting involved in the discussions.

Of course, this is all easier said than done, but with the right media monitoring tools, you can get started with your best foot forward. Click here to check out some of our services so that you can be on the right track!

Trendspotting is no longer just an intuition but a science of solid facts

The world is facing a plethora of trends. Although some innovations drive trends, most trends precede innovation. With the emergence of data science, data scientists use scientific methods, algorithms, and machine learning principles to extract insights from raw data.

In this whitepaper, Isentia will dive into data-driven ways to spot trends through the art of social listening by using actual case studies.

Isentia, a leading provider of media intelligence and analysis services, is proud to announce the launch of “The Conversation of Sport: Representation of Women in Sports News Coverage,” in partnership with the Office of Women in Sport and Recreation. This research aims to bring awareness to gender inequality in sports, and attention to address the underrepresentation of women in sports media.

The purpose of this research is to establish a baseline of the current coverage of women’s sport and women in sport in Victoria, providing crucial data to advocate for improved representation moving forward. Isentia's expertise in media monitoring and analysis plays a pivotal role in gathering independent, transparent data to assess the current landscape accurately.

"Equal representation in sport is key in shaping the way we view the world…This research represents a key step forward in reducing the gap in coverage for women in sports news. It directly supports the media and sporting organisations with independent, transparent data of current performance in this space.," said Ros Spence Minister for Community Sport

This research shows that the coverage of women’s sport in the media remains significantly lower than that of men’s sport, with only 15% of sports news coverage in Victoria focusing on women’s sport in 2022-23. Isentia's collaboration with Change Our Game aims to highlight this disparity by empowering media outlets with the data and tools necessary to increase the visibility of women in sports news.

Isentia and its partners envision a future where strong representation of women in sports media contributes to the professionalisation of women’s elite sport, dismantles limiting stereotypes, and promotes inclusivity at both the elite and community sport levels. This collaboration sets the stage for a more equitable and diverse sports media landscape, where the stories and achievements of women athletes are celebrated, amplified and contribute to a stronger ecosystem for women's sport.

"Through our partnership with OWSR, we are hopeful that this research will shine a light on the current state of play of sports news, and the impact this can have on the support and participation in women’s sport. While the findings are confronting, having this baseline will help drive positive change." said Ngaire Crawford for Director of Insights and Research, Isentia. 

"We believe that by working together, we can drive meaningful change and create a more inclusive sporting environment for women and girls everywhere."

What We Hope For the Future:

Through our partnership with Change Our Game and the Victorian Government, we hope to pave the way for a future where women in sport are celebrated and recognized on equal footing with their male counterparts in the media. By increasing the visibility and representation of women in sports media, we aim to inspire the next generation of athletes, journalists and content creators and drive positive change towards a more inclusive and equitable sporting landscape. Together, we can create a world where every athlete, regardless of gender, has the opportunity to thrive and succeed.
