Report: ROI of Customer Experience, 2014

1409_RoIofCX_COVERWe just published a Temkin Group report, ROI of Customer Experience, 2014. The research shows the connection between customer experience, loyalty, and revenue growth for 19 industries. Here’s the executive summary:

To understand how customer experience corresponds to loyalty, we examined feedback from 10,000 U.S. consumers describing their experiences with and their loyalty to 268 companies. Our analysis shows a strong correlation between customer experience and loyalty factors such as repurchasing, trying new offerings, forgiving mistakes, and recommending the company to friends and colleagues. We compared the consumers who gave companies a very good customer experience rating to those who gave companies a very bad customer experience rating, and we found that the percentage of customers who plan on repurchasing products is 18 percentage-points higher at organizations with excellent CX ratings. Additionally, the Net Promoter Scores of companies with very good CX ratings average 22 points higher than the scores of companies with poor CX. We built a model to evaluate how customer experience impacts a $1 billion business’s revenue over three years in each of the 19 industries, and this model shows that CX has the largest impact on hotels ($461 million), fast food chains ($437 million), and retailers ($428 million). This report also includes a five-step approach for building a model that estimates the value of CX for your organization.

  1. Thanks for sharing this Bruce. Indeed lets respect that a loyal customer is much more valuable to your company and brand. Countless research reports point out that repeat customers spend more and by rewarding them, a recommendation butterfly effect can create more customers thus lowering your direct costs of customer acquisition. Your research will help us (Ephlux) engage CX Cloud customers better.
