Impacts and Recommendations

  • Giving consumers a strong role in your product design and putting them at the center of your marketing strategy help IT providers improve engagement with their brand and increase their NPS
  • Major financial problems or perceived uncertainty in a company's outlook erodes the brand perception, causing the NPS to decline and pushing consumers to look for alternative providers
  • Chinese TSPs struggle to establish brand awareness and create positive perception among consumers in mature markets
