If this year 2024 you are planning to growth your business, customer feedback needs to be in your roadmap. Don't waist more time waiting to understand customers' perspectives, instead, improve the overall customer experience and satisfaction level by turning customer feedback into actionable strategies. Doing that you can create a win-win situation that benefits both the company and its customers.

The goal of customer feedback is not just about reading user’s feedback and “interpret them.” It requires careful analysis and strategic application to generate valuable information that drives your business growth. Here, we resume the step by step to start to collect customer feedback.

Let’s start from the beginning, feedback is a broad term that encompasses a lot of things. I mean we can talk about social media comments, customer surveys, NPS, customer testimonials, online reviews, and even expert reviews. So, first things first, you need to understand from where the feedback is coming and what kind of user is giving it. Is it from a survey? Is it from social media? Is from a regular user? Is it from a first-time user? I advise you to create a customer feedback system to compile all important data in one place.

You'll find that there are many feedbacks that are repeated, from there you can start doing your analysis. The majority of feedback on some topic is the one you have to cover first. Once you comprehend the source and meaning, you can use them to refine our business strategies and improve customer experiences. By doing so, you can ensure that your business remains responsive to customer needs and market trends.

Customer feedback tools

I recognize that the tools to collect user feedback and the dashboard of these tools can be boring and difficult to read. But not everything is bad! There are tools like told.club that are not just focus in the data but also in the UX design, for both customers and your team, because we need to be honest, your users don't want to answer ugly and boring surveys and also your team doesn't want to spend hours understanding and extensive and complicated dashboard for customer feedback.

Remember that, customer feedback softwares are now led by AI and machine learning. Tools right now provide advanced analytics using customer feedback platforms that provide good insights into customer preferences and behavior.

Collect quality feedback

Not all feedback is a good feedback, and I’m not talking about the negative buzz that often comes to products or services. Instead, I am highlighting the importance of collecting feedback that is effective, insightful, and relevant.

Instead, effective feedback collection requires strategies that encourage genuine and honest customer responses by understanding of customer behaviour and response patterns.

Designing engaging surveys is an excellent strategy where the power lies in the questions we ask. The right questions can open the doors to invaluable insights about the users. But it's not just about asking questions, the real key is being able to analyze the answers and decipher the information hidden within. So Take notes and start your own customer feedback questionnaire! What do you really want to know about your user regarding your product.

Analyze feedback for actionable insights

If you got this far it's because you're doing things right. The heart of customer feedback is the analysis to be able to extract actionable insights. To achieve this, you will need balanced blend of both qualitative and quantitative methodologies. On the one hand, the qualitative approach helps you understand the emotions, and context of the feedback. On the other hand, the quantitative approach helps in dealing with measurable data, enabling the extraction of concrete, numerical insights.

The process of identifying trends, patterns, and recurring themes within this feedback is an integral part of this analysis. Once you have all this information, you can make strategic decisions that are more align to the evolving needs and expectations of your customers, you will see that sometimes users don't want the same as business so for that you will need to decide who to listen first.

Implement customer feedback

Hands on actions! Acknowledging and acting on customer feedback is crucial. Responding in a timely and appropriate manner, and taking necessary steps to improve are the following and final steps. After analyzing the data collected it is neccessary to incorporated customer suggestions into your operations, or next releasings demostrating to your user that they haven been listened. They for sure will noticed it.
