Feedback Surveys

We created Customer Thermometer’s customer feedback survey approach because we wanted to find ways to get customer feedback without burdening them or bothering them. Traditional online surveys are long, boring and hard to answer on a mobile device. Many companies are only now realizing that the old ways of getting customer feedback are defunct.

In this section we have a great range of information about customer feedback surveys, how to execute them, what works and what doesn’t, ideas for questions you can ask in your feedback surveys that get right to the heart of the matter, and much more. It’s time to be super ambitious with your feedback program – and these articles will show you how.
