The importance of feedback in improving your sales, site and software.

Written by Michael Wall

Customer feedback A while back I received an email from a potential customer suggesting that he liked a piece of membership software that I sell. Overrepparttar course ofrepparttar 131696 next few days he sent me numerous emails with suggestions for features that I might want to include in a new update. I was only to happy to get to work on his suggestions after all they could only make for a better product, more customers and a bigger profit. He was also a very experienced web developer with over 10 years experience so to ignore his advice would be foolish.

A couple of months downrepparttar 131697 line and sales soared. His extensive feedback had proved a godsend and showed exactly why feedback is so important. It helped me provide better software and dramatically increased my online sales. Tapping intorepparttar 131698 knowledge of an experienced web developer will always provide dividends. Even less experienced developers and general visitors can give you valuable advice and a new perspective.

Website blind When you build a website you can sometimes get so focused onrepparttar 131699 site that even after your testing and quality assurance you can overlook errors and typos. Getting an outsider to proof read your copy is always a good idea.

Negative feedback Negative feedback should spur you on provided it is constructive rather than abusive. You will always getrepparttar 131700 guy who cruises round sites just ditching everything in sight. Ignorerepparttar 131701 abuse and don't be rattled though always take on board feedback provided it is constructive.

Use a Poll Although not every visitor will provide you with such as a wealth of feedback as wasrepparttar 131702 case above there are plenty of ways to actively encourage your visitors and they aren’t that complicated or costly to implement. A poll is a good way to garnish feedback. I realised after a while that I could use my poll as a way to assist me in planning new site adjustments and to find out what areas ofrepparttar 131703 site my visitors felt needed to be changed or updated. Polls that I have asked on my site include “Should I use Worldpay as well as PayPal for a payment option?” and “Should I include a member’s forum”. I acted on my forum results asrepparttar 131704 majority of site visitors wanted a forum and decided not to use Worldpay forrepparttar 131705 time being as my visitors seemed happy enough to use PayPal to buy my software. If you would like to have more information and not just a straight poll you could use a poll that allows your visitors to add comments as well. I created a Poll system (Poll Pro) that not only allowsrepparttar 131706 site administrator to post polls but also to allow visitors to vote and offer comments as well. It’s a nice feature and highly beneficial. Think about your poll carefully and what exactly you want to know, questions that help or improve your site or help you learn some demographics of your visitors are preferable. Acting onrepparttar 131707 poll outcome will show regular visitors that you are listening to their opinions.
