Customer silence isn’t always golden.” In our conversation with Lindsay Willott, co-Founder and CEO of Customer Thermometer, we take a closer look at what customer satisfaction really is, and why every company should be monitoring the metrics tied to it. After all, “just because customers are quiet, it’s not safe to assume they are happy.” From implementing customer surveys to the benefits of tracking customer satisfaction (CSAT), and tips on how to increase survey responses 10x, Lindsay unveils some of the most important things to know about finding value from a simple one-click survey.
