Why is it important?
The growth of a brand depends on what your customer thinks about your service or product and your willingness to act on that feedback. Numerous studies have revealed that personal recommendations (Word of Mouth Marketing) are often preferred over advertisements. This means it's an absolute necessity to satisfy your customers, because there's no marketing tool as powerful and effective as a satisfied customer.
Have a plan in mind
To gain insightful feedback, it's important to ask the right questions at the right time. The first step to create a set of objectives as your focal point is crucial. Objectives are a set of goals you are looking to achieve towards the result.
The question to start with is, how willing are you to make changes to your products or services? This is important because feedback without change can negatively impact your brand. Encountering the same problems over and over, even after sharing their feedback, can leave your customers feeling unheard and unimportant.
