Why aren’t you asking for feedback, every time?

NewImageWith all of the online communication tools you have, why aren’t you asking for feedback from every customer, every time? A simple email will do.

What customers think about each transaction is vital — it decides whether you’ll ever see them again.

You should care, and you should show customers that you care.


Not everyone will respond, but the angry customers will, which gives you one more chance to save a relationship before you lose them forever. The business you save this way may be worth more than all the new sales you make each month.

We find that by replying to an upset customer (even within just 5 minutes or the concern) they are almost all calmed down. Almost like they are embarrassed, and become apologetic. Just acknowledging their concern can turn them into a client for life, not all of them, but many.

    The phrase “People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care” fits perfect here.
