By Shep Hyken There are many definitions of the term brand. One of my favorites is this: A brand is a promised delivered. Is what you’re known for delivered consistently? Consider Ace Hardware, whose brand promise is The Helpful Hardware Place. When you visit an Ace Hardware store, do they keep their promise? Are they helpful? Based on all their awards and the comments from happy customers posted on social channels, they deliver. Those comments and awards are what I refer to as The Echo. As you “shout” your brand promise, the feedback you get in return is the echo. And you want that echo to reflect your words. ...

Give Them Help Before They Yelp
Shep Hyken | July 13, 2022
By Shep Hyken Online reviews can work in two ways. For a company that provides a great customer experience, reviews can add credibility and bring in more business. But for companies that don’t provide an acceptable experience, online reviews can become the bane of their existence. And the world gets to watch how they handle the problems. But what if you don’t have the type of business that gets Yelp or Google reviews? It doesn’t matter what type of business or industry you’re in. You are not immune from bad reviews. There is a forum for every industry where customers talk. It may not be as public as Yelp, but it’s the plac...
Stop Sending Me Surveys Unless You Care What I Have to Say!
Shep Hyken | January 26, 2022
By Shep Hyken I’m getting survey fatigue. But it’s different than it used to be. In the past, companies have sent me surveys that were so long I became tired – or fatigued – at some point during the survey, and as a result, I wouldn’t complete it and therefore the company never received my feedback. We’ve covered survey length before, and that’s not what this is about. This time I’m talking about being fatigued, as in sick and tired of getting so many surveys. It seems that almost every time I get my car worked on, call my internet provider, stay at a hotel, fly on an airline, order almost anything online, etc., etc....
Shep Hyken | November 24, 2021
By Shep Hyken To what extent will a company go to try to get customer feedback? Is it a simple email request? Is it an incentive to fill out a survey? And, if there is an incentive, can that skew the results? One of our faithful subscribers sent in a question. At the end of a project with a customer, she sends an email requesting the customer take a short survey. She said that she gets a very low response rate. So, she sends another. Then another. On the fourth try, she writes, “Do you like coffee? My treat!” She says that she gets a response to that almost every time. Her question to me was, “Is this a form of bribery, ...

Would You Please Leave a Review About Your Experience?
Shep Hyken | July 8, 2020
By Shep Hyken Getting customers to review their experience with you is powerful. Before they make a purchase, go to a restaurant, stay at a hotel and more, many customers do online research, which leads them to reviews that help form their opinion of products or services they want to buy—or even the company they want to buy it from. Nothing new there. How do you get reviews? Well, the easy way is to ask for them. By the way, I recently interviewed Rupesh Patel on Amazing Business Radio, and he shared the “secret sauce” on how he gets amazing guest reviews for his hotels—and his recipe can work for any business. I suggest gi...
