Tracking Customer Satisfaction, Netflix Ad Rollout, & More | Weekly Marketing News

5 Min Read

Every week there is a ton of marketing news for industry professionals to read, and this one was no exception. To make it easier to see it all in one place, we’ve rounded up some of the top stories that caught our attention. 

In digital marketing news, Adweek believes that brands should care more about their customer satisfaction levels than they currently do. In a recent article, Adweek notes that acquiring new customers is 5-25% more expensive than keeping those your brand already has. As a result, keeping those customers happy should be a top priority. The article recommends taking advantage of survey feedback, which can benefit businesses in a variety of ways including identifying gaps in service, gaining insight into high-performing teams, and uncovering opportunities to deepen customer relationships. Adweek recommends that brand take the time to map out their survey processes, share the results, and follow up with those surveyed in order to get the best look into the relationship they have with their customers.

And in the world of Connected TV, eMarketer covered the news that a Netflix ad-supported tier could arrive as soon as Q4 of 2022. Recently, the streaming giant made headlines after revealing around 200,000 subscribers had left the service—their first decline in 10 years. And while Netflix responded to the loss by announcing a future ad-supported tier to offset their high subscription costs, they originally reported that the move could take more than a year to implement. However, it looks like Netflix plans to speed up that process, and an internal note acknowledges that this is a departure from their original plans, “Yes, it’s fast and ambitious and it will require some trade-offs.” Ultimately, eMarketer reports that Netflix will have to handle its rollout carefully, or risk alienating even more viewers.
