NEW YORK, May 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Brand exposure is vital to staying relevant in today's crowded marketplace. But what cost-effective tool should small businesses utilize that not only creates brand evangelists, but builds your organizations' credibility?
In the latest article posted to PR Newswire's Small Business PR Toolkit, contributing author Heather Wied explains that the answer lies in leveraging customer feedback. Wied provides four ways to gather this information.
Process. Identifying when to gather feedback can be a challenge for resource-strapped business owners, so Wied suggests establishing a process within your customer's purchasing cycle to provide structure.
Incentivize. Offer a discount for first-time feedback providers or implement a referral program to provide customers additional perks for the additional referrals they bring in. Identify your avid customers or brand evangelists and reward these users with special perks that are greater than the average incentives you offer.
For discussion on the two remaining ways to gather customer feedback, read Wied's complete post here.
