Should you measure Net Promoter Score® for a company or a brand?


Net Promoter Score® is a measure of Customer Loyalty.

It is based on 1 question, that is, “How likely are you to recommend us to others?” Although, seemingly simple, it can reveal a lot about a business’s relationship with its customers. Numr, a customer experience management (CXM) company believes NPS® to be an essential metric for Customer Experience Management.

Since, customer experience depends on customers’ thoughts and opinions, it cannot be correctly measured by Operational (O) data. However, an NPS® survey an effectively capture this emotionally driven feedback. It quantifies both recommendations and loyalty. Ideally, companies should use the Net Promoter data to make everyday business decisions.


Before we get to whether you should measure NPS® for a Company or a Brand, let’s understand the difference between them.

Basically, a company refers to the organization that markets or produces products or services. On the other hand, brands are not simply the products that you buy but ideologies that you buy into. Therefore, it become important for companies to have a distinct brand and make sure that it resonates with the masses.

However, in reality, they often overlap and can be used synonymously.


Let’s take the example of a company called PepsiCo. Notably, as of 2015, this company consists of 22 brands. Some of these brands are Pepsi, Lay’s, Gatorade, Doritos, Tropicana, Cheetos, etc. So, measuring NPS® for PepsiCo (a company) would serve no purpose. Usually, a company consists of numerous ‘brands.’ Moreover, customers interact with brands, not companies.

In short, Net Promoter Score® should be measured for a brand, not a company.

Numr uses Net Promoter Score® to create brand advocates (promoters). Today, brand perceptions and superior customer service are incredibly important. For sustainable growth and profit, a singular focus on customers is not an option any longer. It is compulsory.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
