Question: “I’ve been asking customers for feedback, and it is starting to roll in. Some of the responses are really uplifting – I didn’t even know your customers felt that way! But what should you do when you receive it?”
One of the great things about proactively asking for and tracking feedback is that it helps you identify your best, happiest customers. Many times, these people are your best advocates – and they are telling their family and friends about you.
The value of these customers is unlimited – not only will they come back to you time and time again with new business, they will also recommend you to others!
By using MagicRating, an automated customizable “Thank You” email will have already gone out to the customer, but it is a good idea to identify your most loyal customers and make sure they know you appreciate them.
Here are a few suggestions on what you could do for them in addition to having MagicRating send out a Thank You email:
1- Send them a hand-written thank you note
2- Send them a discount or a coupon
3- Invite them to a special event
4- Ask them to vote on a favorite charity and make a donation
5- Ask if they would be willing to be profiled
If the customer left you a positive “Online Review” make sure to comment on the review with a personal “Thank you”. Not all review sites allow you to do this. But Yelp, for example, allows you to comment on any review as the Business Owner.
