    The NPS is arguably the best way to measure customer satisfaction and growth efficiency of a company. This measurement is based on the likelihood to recommend question which employs that increasing the number of Promoters and decreasing the number of Detractors will increase your NPS. A higher NPS, in turn, leads to an increase in repeat and referral business because more people are recommending you to others and less people are ‘dissing’ you, or not recommending you at all. Increasing your repeat and referral business (which typically accounts for 75% of a company’s business) will lead to higher revenues and profits, therefore increasing the growth efficiency of a company.
