Customer Feedback

Customer feedback is becoming increasingly hard to get in any representative way. The traditional customer survey now gets sub 2% response rates. Tweets, Facebook posts, review sites, likes and shares are all very well, but often it’s only the customers who shout the loudest (often those who’ve had a bad experience) who get heard.

We created Customer Thermometer to tackle exactly this problem. We are dedicated to sourcing the fastest and most accurate picture of how your customers feel without bothering them. In this section we’ve collected our best articles on the changing face of customer feedback, and how to navigate it.
