Who should have a customer survey or loyalty scheme?

Customer satisfaction applies to business, professional services, charities and the voluntary sector. Whether you are a dentist, a solicitor, an accountant, an optician, a local charity, a local authority or an international company you need to engage with your customers. Spend all you like on advertising, if your customers are not satisfied they will tell as many people as will listen, word of mouth and personal recommendation support advertising and strengthen your reputation and brand.

What should you measure?

You should set an overall question that you will constantly ask to all customers, there are numerous standards and questions, just ask and we can help you develop the right question for you. This gives you a benchmark that you can publish to your staff, link it to bonuses and performance related rewards.
For specific projects add supplementary questions but not too many you want to engage not interrogate. Make sure you get contact information and permission to use it for your loyalty program, this means you can interact directly with customers that support you and your business.

How do you deal with negative feedback ?

Not all feedback is going to be positive but that does not mean it is not valuable. Investigate what has caused the problem, evaluate the complaint and decide what action you are going to take. Do not forget to tell the customer what you have done and say thank you for their feedback!! If your customer has taken the time to tell you they have had a problem be thankful and remember they have probably told friends and family as well.

How do you deal with positive feedback?

Pat your self on the back? Well yes but be cautious and investigate! You should have a mix of feedback, you are never going to please all of the people all of the time and if you link satisfaction to staff rewards remember they could be influencing responses!
Look for patterns in behaviour, maybe there is a specific time when customers are happy whilst at another they are not.

What results will you get?

If you don’t measure your performance how will you notice it is declining? Engage your staff and customers alike, improve the whole service that you offer, continuous improvement is easier than trying to recover.
Use your loyalty scheme to promote seasonal or special events directly to your customers. Gathering feedback means you can retain up to date information that you can use to promote your business. At Ræcan we specialise in delivering promotional support and we can deliver a powerful campaign to suit your budget and needs.
