Our digital reputations have become our most valuable currency

In this ultra-digitalized era, new technologies have emerged, allowing customers to connect directly with companies unlike ever before.

Ignoring feedback, complaints or unfair service is no longer an option. Customer-centricity has become the beating heart of any serious business undertaking. Today, companies that know how to tune in to the Voice of Customers are those mastering the Feedback Economy. Read on and learn how.

The cost of ignoring feedback

How is the Feedback Economy benefiting winners and leaving behind the rest?

The Feedback Economy presents a vital opportunity for companies to either succeed or fall flat. With consumers looking to others to decide how they feel about a brand, feedback holds immense power in determining where customers give their business. In fact, 93% of consumers say online reviews impact purchase decisions. While companies earn the chance to improve from continuous feedback, they must also deliver what customers expect in return. Companies that ignore the reality of the Feedback Economy are at a greater risk of revenue loss: losing customers, visitors and even employees.
