A Customer Satisfaction Rating (or CSAT) is a marketing term often used to describe how well a company’s products and services meet customers’ expectations. These ratings are given on a 5-point scale ranging from “Very Dissatisfied” to “Very Satisfied”.
Customers are given a survey with a question like “How would you rate your experience with X?” or “How would you describe your overall satisfaction with Y?” and asked to respond with Very Unsatisfied / Unsatisfied / Neutral / Satisfied / Very Satisfied. These responses are then totaled for the number of Satisfied or Very Satisfied ratings given to determine a final score.
Here are some of the factors that contribute to customer responses:
- Quality of your product or service
- Ease of access to your product or service
- Ease of access to your customer service department
- Time from initial purchase to actual use of your product
- Honest marketing
- Sincere efforts toward customer retention
Pros: With CSAT, you have the option to ask your customers many different types of questions. This makes the CSAT a very versatile measurement of satisfaction which you can customize to fit your own product’s strengths and weaknesses.
Cons: Many people who don’t have a strong opinion on how satisfactory your product was will simply not complete the survey. This makes the CSAT a very inaccurate tool for measuring your customer’s future purchasing habits or the likelihood of repeat business.
