How to use Feedback to Improve Customer Experience: In Depth

“I’ve tried sending customer service surveys, but I never seem to get the response rate I want…”

“I want to get feedback from our customers, but it’s hard to ask at the right time…”

“It would be great to start sending surveys, but I need to focus on things with concrete benefits first…”

Sound familiar?

Over the years, CustomerSure has helped hundreds of businesses start or improve customer feedback programs which deliver results.

Based on the experiences of our founder, Guy Letts in turning a £1m black-hole into £1m+ of profit at one of the UK’s largest software businesses, and learning a lot from our clients along the way, we’ve developed a system for working with feedback that guarantees results.

It’s both simple and surprising. Surprising, because it turns a lot of conventional wisdom on its head. But also simple, because it turns out that if you get a few very small things right, customer satisfaction skyrockets and profits soon follow.
