Check it: New RIBs ONLY Goodies in our Shop

RIBs ONLY - Home of the Rigid Inflatable Boat

The RIBs ONLY shop has been around for some time now. I only had two kind of badges to sell: a pin and a magnet. And now it’s time to add some goodies.

In addition to these RIBs ONLY badges, I now also offer a boat flag in the shop. It is 50 cm long (19,69 inch) and 25 cm high (9,84 inch). Let this flag fly proudly on your RIB.

The offer also includes a green sticker with white text. The dimensions are 10cm x 10cm (3,94 inch x 3,94 inch).

It is interesting for you especially if you don’t have any metal parts on your RIB to use the magnetic badge to declare your membership of RIBs ONLY. The sticker only costs € 1 (without shipping and handling).

So now a total of 4 products can be bought from our RIBs ONLY shop.

Many thanks for your support!

RIBs ONLY Facebook Group Outranks Apple in NPS

On October 22th 2019 I launched a survey in the RIBs ONLY Facebook group. The goal was to get a Net Promoter Score. This tool aims to measure the loyalty that exists between a provider and a consumer. I was very curious to know how you would perceive our group.

Net Promoter Score is a number from -100 from 100. Scores higher than 0 are typically considered to be good and scores above 50 are considered to be excellent.

The question for you was:

Considering your complete experience with our RIBs ONLY Facebook group, how likely would you be to recommend it to a friend or colleague?
(10 is very likely, 0 is very unlikely)

I gathered the data and used an Excel template to calculate the score. The result is not a percentage, nor an average or median. In other words the higher the number the more satisfied the members are.

As Excel did its thing in microseconds, the NPS score turned out to be 82. I was pleasantly surprised because the NPS was beyond my imagination: NPS 82 … wow! Why is this such a fantastic score?

Well, Apple has a NPS of nearly 50 which is considered to be very good. I choose Apple as a benchmark because many of you visit our Facebook group and by iPhone.

An NPS of 82 is very high because a lot of members gave our RIBs ONLY Facebook group a 10 on the question mentioned above. And more … RIBs ONLY has a lot of ambassadors, enthousiastic members that invite friends.

So RIBs ONLY outranks Apple, Microsoft, Google and many more in NPS. What a way to go!
