Real Value of Customer Feedback
- – - – - – - -
I have been working on a website for a local Labradoodle Breeder
this summer. We moved her website over to WordPress and have been
meeting regularly to hammer out an internet marketing strategy.
Today we talked about building an email marketing campaign… and
as we were brainstorming content options for her
emails, I brought up asking her current Facebook friends and
customers what they would like to see in a regular email.
Do you ever get caught in the trap of thinking you need to portray
a certain image of having all the answers with your customers
and/or readers? Sometimes we think we have to know it all with our
customers or with those we interact with in our business world…
when the truth is, there is incredible value in asking your
customer questions or just plain listening to them.
Back in 2003, I had just started my HuntedTreasure subscription
site offering research on used children’s items. At the time I
had an idea of where I wanted my business to go… but, no planning
could have prepared me for where it went - and really, it’s all
because I listened to my customers and readers! I wish I could
remember her name… but, in October of 2003 I received an email
loaded with questions about how to sell toys during the holidays on
eBay. I spent a lot of time answering all of her questions… and
then realized that she probably wasn’t the only one with those
excellent questions. I threw her questions and my answers (along
with other great info about listing on eBay and researching holiday
toys) into a pdf and created a short report that has since grown
into the Holiday Toy Guide. Although I never expected the Holiday
Toy Guide to grow like it has, it has become one of largest revenue
generators in my product offering line-up… All because I listened
to my customer’s needs and took it one step further to offer
the information I was giving to all my readers.
I want to encourage you to embrace the value of customer feedback
(even the negative is something we can learn from). Take the time
to ask your customers what they are interested in. Take note of the
questions they are asking you. And grow your business to offer a
solution for them based on what you learn. This will look different
for everyone… maybe you sell children’s clothing and you get
a lot of questions about caring for used items to make them last.
This could be the topic of a short report or blog that you offer
your potential customers. For me it was about selling toys
online… What will it be for you?
