Customer Surveys

We built Customer Thermometer to make giving feedback as simple and effective as possible. It’s a survey designed with the user in mind. For too long, customer surveys have been designed with market researchers’ needs at heart, never the customer’s. Our fresh new approach to surveys is so compelling that our customers see their response rates, and their insight, shooting up. What seemed like a mission 5 years ago – the one click customer feedback concept is loved and embraced by some of the world’s most forward-thinking companies.

So in this section you’ll find some real gems of content covering every angle of customer satisfaction surveys. For example, here you’ll find our most popular ever post, “100 amazing customer experience resources”, and our highly-shared post “14 ways to improve your customer experience response rate”. If you are planning a customer experience survey or a client feedback survey you will find everything you need in these articles. You’ll also find thought leadership on the survey of the future, big name interviews, our keynotes on customer surveys and much more. And don’t forget to sign up for our free trial account which gives you 10 free surveys. Enjoy!
