Finding Out What Customers Think

Surveying customers on the cheap to improve business
  • ---Shares

Telephone interviews are an inexpensive and fast way to get information from your customers. Ask clearly worded brief questions - people don't like to spend a lot of time on the phone answering questions.

You may learn more through a direct-mail survey. It needn't be elaborate; you can even use a postcard. But don't ask more than 15 questions.

With today's technology, you can conduct fax or e-mail interviews. The same criteria apply here - be clear and concise - and always thank customers in advance for their input.

Always remember, the most important thing is not how you ask the questions but how you apply what you learn.
