Drive loyalty with customer satisfaction surveys

Measuring customer satisfaction is essential to long-term loyalty. Acquiring new business can cost five times more than retaining an existing customer, and increasing custom retention by just 5% can increase profits by 25-95%. Gain valuable insights into your customers’ preferences and behaviours by sending short surveys via SMS. Studies show that SMS messages have a 209% better response rate than any other channel for surveys.

Determine product viability with research surveys

Building up enough representative data used to mean using a large sample size and extensive resources. SMS Surveys break this mould thanks to significantly higher response rates and cost-effective transmission. Get real-time information on what makes your target market tick without the need for external agencies or for expensive and far less effective mail or telephone campaigns.

Data cleansing

Your communications are only as good as the database you’re using. Many businesses struggle with out-of-date or inaccurate customer data. SMS Surveys are an easy and cost-effective way to ensure your data is always up-to-date. SMS is less intrusive than a phone call and means that customers can respond at a time that suits them. Staying on top of your customer’s personal details, preferences and requirements has never been easier!
