Overview

Cofidis Czech Republic is one of our longest-running clients. We have been improving its customer experience by measuring the NPS metrics since 2019. We succeeded, however, the Google reviews still needed improvement, and customers were not leaving as many reviews as the company would like.


Google reviews are an important part of promoting one’s business. Many people use them to make informed choices on whether they are going to use a certain service or not. Therefore, it was crucial to improve Cofidis’s rating to turn potential customers into paying customers, and build trust in the brand.

Goal

Encourage the customers to leave a positive, honest Google review for the Cofidis Czech Republic and improve its star rating to increase traffic to the website.

Methodology

Since customers either forget about leaving a review or do not feel the need to share their feelings about a company’s services, they need a gentle nudge. While measuring the NPS metric through email campaigns, our CX team added a simple request at the end of email surveys asking customers to leave a Google review if they were satisfied with the company's services.

Results

  • In the course of our cooperation, the Czech branch collected over 13,500 pieces of feedback with 94% of the sentiment being positive. Its feedback conversion rate is almost 24%, which is quite outstanding since common conversion rates for commercial businesses range from 6 to 12%.
  • It is much more difficult for a financial company with online services to increase its Google reviews than for, let's say, retail stores. Thanks to the increased conversion rate and the request added to feedback surveys, Cofidis received more than 70 Google reviews in 2021. These reviews helped boost its Google star rating from 1.4 to 4.2 in less than a year.
  • Now they are reaping the benefits of improved Google reviews including higher ranking, increased traffic to the website, and higher customer conversion.
