via TweetDeck

To be clear, @willscullypower called the latter two “vanity metrics”. I don’t know his views on NPS. I’m just guessing.

via TweetDeck

NPS is what @willscullypower calls a “vanity metric”, like the number of Twitter followers, or a Kred score. This is not a business goal.

via TweetDeck

NPS is the exact opposite of customer-centric. It’s “Does my bum look big in this?” narcissism. That’s why types love it.

via TweetDeck

The central conceit of NPS is seeing your company’s job as turning customers into marketers, instead of damn well serving your customers.
