What are customer feedback surveys?

Customer feedback surveys are one of the most used market research tools. They are designed to capture comments, reactions, and suggestions from respondents. This includes both positive responses and negative reviews about a company’s new product usability, service, or customer support.
Traditionally, businesses collect feedback through paper comment cards or suggestion boxes. Nowadays, organizations have switched to a more digital approach and opt to gather customer feedback in real-time through:
  • Email surveys
  • In-app surveys
  • Website pop-up surveys
  • Phone surveys

What is customer feedback management (CFM), and how does it work?

Simply put, customer feedback management (CFM) is the process of utilizing feedback to gain actionable insights on how to drive customer satisfaction and loyalty. It helps businesses align efforts to achieve desired results.
Managing a customer feedback loop involves the following steps:

4 types of customer experience surveys

In order to effectively collect customer feedback, it is important to ask the right questions and choose the most suitable template for your demographic. You wouldn’t expect your customers to respond to a snail-mailed 5-page survey or a random robocall, would you? A well-designed questionnaire not only prioritizes the inclusion of easy-to-understand survey questions, but also takes into account the convenience of the people answering it.
If you’d like to give feedback collection a go, here are some that you could try:
CSAT surveys are one of the most used questionnaires in the business world. Survey responses are used as metrics to measure customer sentiment and happiness in relation to brand, product, and customer support experiences. Positive customer satisfaction scores show you what you are doing right, while negative feedback tells you there’s a problem that needs immediate attention.
Customer satisfaction survey templates typically consist of the following:
  • Questions with Likert scale ratings (e.g., rate from 1 to 5, highly satisfied to highly unsatisfied, or not at all likely to extremely likely)
  • Open-ended questions with follow-ups (e.g., “How would you rate your satisfaction with our product? Please share your comments with us.”)
  • Binary yes/no questions or similar (thumbs up or thumbs down, smiley face or sad face, etc.)
This survey measures the amount of effort a customer has to exert to be able to get an issue resolved, a question answered, a task completed, or a request fulfilled. It is believed that customers tend to be more loyal to a product/service that is easier to use. With CES, businesses can evaluate current processes and optimize them to increase customer loyalty and reduce customer churn.
The types of questions in this kind of survey are usually coupled with rating scales and are designed to gain relevant customer insights. Here are some examples:
  • How easy was your user experience with us?
  • To what extent do you agree with this statement: My issue was resolved promptly.
  • Was it easy to find the information you wanted on our website?
  • Were the instructions you received during the onboarding stage easy to understand and follow?
NPS surveys measure how likely customers are to recommend a product/service to a friend, colleague, or relative. Measuring customer satisfaction levels allow businesses to rank their customer base according to their level of enthusiasm:
  • 0-6: Detractors – Unhappy customers whose opinions can negatively affect your brand
  • 7-8: Passives – Satisfied customers who are vulnerable to competitor swaying
  • 9-10: Promoters – Loyal customers who will continue to buy your products and will serve as ambassadors of your brand
Because customers prefer a brand recommended by loved ones, NPS is a key KPI you should consider when establishing a customer relationship and market research strategy.
Exit customer surveys offer a glimpse of the main reasons for having low customer retention and high cart abandonment rates. Feedback data can be used to gain actionable insights so businesses can meet existing and new customer expectations. These surveys can also be used to capture information that can be used for future email marketing campaigns.
This online survey usually consists of close-ended questions or multiple-choice questions that limit survey responses to a focused area (e.g., reasons for canceling their SaaS subscription, switching to another e-commerce platform, and more).
