We’ve all been part of a customer satisfaction survey at one point or another…maybe more than we’d like.  You may even have sent some surveys yourself.  Have you ever wondered what are some best practices for making sure you get the most insight from your efforts?  If so, then this session is for you. In this overview of Measuring Customer Satisfaction, we will discuss:

  • How to select the correct customers to survey
  • How to ask questions that give you the most insight, especially when customers are not completely satisfied
  • How to design surveys that people are likely to complete
  • The four most common types of survey error and how to control them
  • How to analyze your surveys and present the information
  • How to use your results to improve customer satisfaction
  • How to track customer satisfaction over time to show improvement
  • Alternatives to surveys
