The digital generation is expected to impact every aspect of the car business, but it’s a process that still seems nascent. Younger men are more likely than others to sell their old car online, probably a byproduct of more young buyers being dissatisfied with trade-in offers than other age groups. It follows that young people are the most likely to use mobile devices for research, prioritizing up-to-date dealer inventories and vehicle-history reports. Customer satisfaction survey is given to customers by the business organizations to measure the happiness or satisfaction level of the customers with the company. Satisfaction survey will help you to get the information about the variety of problems that customers are facing or the reasons of low sales. Time frame is an important factor for satisfaction survey and this can be varied according to the type of business. You have to decide which kind of information you are interested to collect from the survey. Enter your email address to receive notifications whenever we add new layouts & templates. Each year building owners and facility managers enter their buildings in the National Energy Barometer Survey (NEBS) to compare how they have improved their energy use against others in a similar industry – hospitals, offices, car dealers, hotels and shopping centers. The National Energy Barometer Survey (NEBS) is an annual benchmarking service which Energy Cybernetics administers to compile an accurate database of building energy use information in the country.
NEBS endeavors to compile an accurate database of building energy use information in the country and is supported by the Central Energy Fund (CEF), the National Energy Efficiency Agency (NEEA), the South African National Energy Development Institute (SANEDI) and the Energy Training Foundation (EnTF). Participants use the service at no charge, and for that they receive their ranking result that indicates where they are in accordance with others in their respective industry. Teamwork makes energy efficiency happen, and it has to happen every day so that the energy savings can make a difference.
The closing date for completing NEBS entries is 1 July 2014, whereafter the data will be analysed and audited upon which all participants will receive an emailed NEBS certificate of their results. NEBS encourages companies to become aware of their energy consumption levels, how their buildings are being operated, and to encourage improvements that will bring economic benefits whilst providing a platform for comparison and learning.

Internet analytics can be roughly broken down into two simple activities – customer acquisition and customer optimization. There are two reasons why customer acquisition alone is a poor place to establish your company’s competitive advantage. The second activity, which I believe should be the obsession of all analytical startups, is customer optimization.
Unfortunately, conversion improvements typically are the aggregate gain of 100 tiny improvements, not one silver bullet. Despite the huge potential for gain, conversion improvements are fleeting for many organizations. If you look across the group you will see impressive increases in operating income, and net income margin percentage.
Furthermore, the larger your company, the more you should increase your focus on conversion. All companies should prioritize customer optimization ahead of scaling customer acquisition. Unless you are fairly certain you have a high conversion rate versus your peer group, you can be at an extreme disadvantage buying high volume advertising.
Benchmark has such conviction about the amazing power of conversion that we have made two investments in the past year in companies whose products help drive material conversion lift for their customers. The second company, Sailthru, uses its unique personalization technology to help their customers improve conversion.
Looking forward, you should expect customer optimization and conversion analysis to move to the forefront of analytical marketing work.
In early companies, the first iteration is a creative endeavor … usually solving a problem that they intuitively know about. You actually need both to be successful: you need to design like you are right and listen like you are wrong. In fact, real change comes from finding and embracing and connecting and amplifying those that are inclined to like you and believe in you.
I get the gist but I would like to mention something amazing about conversions, which you have missed.
But, later I saw straight 2X improvements in conversions by offering customers value that they might want now and not directly offering my product. It’s a good read but problem with digital advertising is that we can measure little too much.
That could be the possible reason why we don’t have many good examples of brands built entirely using digital (mobile) advertising.
I am sure with all the technical expertise, digital advertisement can also measure some other metrics like Brand Recall, Brand Recognition etc. Agree that conversion is critical but is even more complex than described due to the increasing rise of customers shopping across multiple devices. I can bid a higher CPC if I can increase my conversion rate or increase my conversion value. Now just because I can bid more won’t mean I will, but since I am a price taker in this instance and Google sells to a fragmented bunch of customers with no power in this position, I will ultimately ending up bidding more once my competitors figure out how to increase their conversion rates. According to a study by Bain & Company, 80% of companies say they’re customer centric, yet only 8% of customers agree. This is important because according to a study by Monetate, 79% of customers will buy from a company again if the experience is good, but 89% of them would switch to a competitor if the experience wasn’t satisfactory.
Going back to the Bain & Company study, I wonder how so many businesses can be so off the mark when it comes to how their customers perceive them. Reflecting on my own experiences as a customer both on- and offline, I think it’s due to the missed opportunities where they could have asked from my feedback but didn’t.
Most don’t even seem to acknowledge they’re using a channel where it’s easier for me to reply than it was for them to send. Wouldn’t this only help you to hone your upsale offers, or collect testimonials, or know what to test next? With the right framework, and a little strategic thinking, you’ll be gathering feedback from all manner of leads & customers. By building feedback experiments, measuring results and extrapolating insights, the goal is to learn something specific about your different visitor, lead & customer segments to improve some other area of your business. For example, if you wanted to form more strategic partnerships, you might automate a survey that goes to the customers who have been buying from you for 6 months.
Hopefully it’s easier to see how really getting specific with who you’re trying to get feedback from can reveal insight for each type of lead & customer. Visitors to your websites can be a great source of feedback, but you don’t have any identifiable information about them (no email, social profiles etc), you have to get the info on the spot. The advantage is that while they are there to mainly help guide visitors to the right resources, you are also constantly learning on what is not clear, what needs improvements, what can be removed and so on – effective feedback loop in action. On-site surveys can be used to direct visitors to the right pages by asking questions related to or feedback on whatever is displayed on the page.
This gives them an opportunity to survey their visitors without asking them to fill anything in.
It is there to help, but at the same time it gives better understanding of what are the reasons that people navigate away. It might look something like this: For Ez Texting, using Olark’s livechat widget on their pricing page helped to increase signups by 31%.
Accounting company CheckMark also saw a 20% increase in new sales within just a few months of implementing live-chat. One of the advantages of live chat is that visitors really get ALL their questions answered by a real person. Using the feedback from non-leads is great, but only if you use it to help improve your actual leadflow.
But what happens when you start building feedback loops into your follow-up communications with leads?
Product was great, list was highly targeted – so just wait for the money to start rolling in, right? The solution wasn’t so much in the action (send a feedback survey) but to whom (segmentation!) the survey was sent. The survey went to people who had opened the email, clicked through but hadn’t bought. The logic was that group of people  showed some interest but in the end didn’t buy. Responses from anyone that was not interested in buying where deleted immediately (can’t help people who don’t want to be helped).Then, sorted the top reasons of people who wanted to buy but didn’t.
Armed with data, they completely redesigned the landing page using the customer’s language & “business type” to provide answers to most pressing fears and concerns. That one survey literally turned the whole product around and from there on in, it sold a lot better and conversions from email campaigns went up as well. But notice how they’re also offering search assistance, document reviews & sample data?
They don’t yet have any experience with you so no matter what happened with previous firsts, this is your chance to start it off right. While there’s nothing inherently wrong with a 1-10 rating survey, something that Jason found off-putting was the sensationalized language. With surveys, it’s important to make sure you’re only asking the most relevant questions – if it takes more than a couple minutes to complete, the survey is probably too long.

Even asking for explanation for why the score was given seems logical and it is more than likely that most customers not only gave the score but also explained for why it was was it was. Sports company Evo-Gear, understood the value of reviews and split-tested 3 different approaches in a single email, which gained them 280 reviews on a single product. If these are the results of a single campaign, imagine what these results might look like were it scaled across all their products? Amazon also makes a game out of reviewing their products, giving a leaderboard for their most helpful reviewers.
If you have frequent or repeat customers, why not introduce them to each other and make a game out of providing quality feedback? They love the the idea of owning your product, but often find themselves afraid of using it because the technology is too “new” for them. The words Amazon Revolutionizes Customer Support was used a quite a lot, because for the first time ever, customers had real time access to tech help that could see what they saw on their devices and if needed, take total control over the device.
For a traditionally less tech-savvy demographic in the consumer market, this feature makes a lot of sense. From an feedback point of view – what Amazon created is about the best example of a feedback loop in action. On the surface, they have a customer support tool, but in the background, they’ve incorporated usability testing that shows their UX designers where people get “stuck”. It’s perfect for the user and the company – users get their problems solved and questions answered. Instead of letting them slip away, build a feedback loop into the end of your email onboarding process to learn why people didn’t convert. This is exactly what Vero did, they sent a simple, personal email one week after the customers trial has expired.
First, Vero gets a great amount of information on why people decided not to use them (huge help when making future product decisions).
Second, The number of people who complete this survey is around 2%, and of those around half will end up giving Vero another try. Those numbers aren’t massive, but then again, getting more people to open the email and take the survey is something that can be tested & improved upon. Tommy Griffith is the face behind ClickMinded, an internet marketing training course focusing on bringing more customers to your site.
When he was just coming out with his product and after some initial success on Udemy with selling his course, he decided to also try and sell it through AppSumo.
Turned out that every single negative review wasn’t actually complaining about the quality of the course itself, no.
That was something that the team had warned Tommy about but at the time he decided to ignore it. After dropping the price, refunding everyone had at bought it at the original price and re-sending the offer later in the week, more positive reviews started coming in, and the initial negative reviewers were slowly starting to change their reviews after some additional hand holding. Be it getting product reviews, as a question and answer tool with on-site feedback, turning around failing products or simply getting back past customers who have tried your product but for whatever reason did not go forward with using it after the trial ended.
Building feedback loops into your products is good for everyone: for customers it shows that the company actually cares about it’s products, services and the people using it.
For companies it’s a great tool to use in your in understanding how people are using your products, what they like about it, don’t like about.
In the end, the approach that hinted at community converted around the same as the control, and the contest approach’s initial conversion rate was 5.6% – roughly double the amount as the control. When you test a current page vs a treatment (new variation), then the current page is referred to as Control. In the early days of our business, above anything else, this was probably the biggest hurdle to overcome.
While this is only a small segment the great thing is that when you contact them they are delighted that you even acknowledged them let alone offer them a solution (refund, exchange etc.) and can end up going from a bitter, passive customer to a very happy one. One of the most important ways of getting feedback from your customers is getting on the phone with them or even handling customer service for a couple of days.
Improve your conversion rates and drive more revenue growth with expert training and actionable insights from the latest CRO research. We as journalists subscribe to the opposite view, but conducting a reader ­survey falls in between.
When asked if they were satisfied with the dealer’s offer, 81 percent of enthusiasts said “Yes” compared with only 74 percent of non-enthusiasts.
Predictably, our survey shows that car buyers aged 18 to 34 are more likely to have recently purchased their first car than other age groups and are more likely to buy used. Despite the stereotype of youthful impatience, men aged 18 to 34 are more likely than others to take more than a year researching their purchase. This survey typically includes different questions about the products, services and sales representatives of the organization. For instance, it will help you to learn about the customer dissatisfaction about particular products. For instance, if you have a car dealership then it is necessary to do survey right away to get current views from the fresh memories of customer. You may want to get satisfaction with funding, pricing, benefits, permanence, reliability and functions. You can also multiple choice questions and ask the customers if they are “Satisfied, Very Satisfied, Dissatisfied, Very Dissatisfied”.
It will be good to keep questions brief and focused to maintain the interests of customers. For the 4th consecutive year, Energy Cybernetics has made its locally developed Energy Barometer tool available to building owners and facility managers to participate in NEBS.
The results help them track their energy efficiency performance, they can see when energy savings investments have made a difference, and if there is potential for more savings – because if others in their industry have done better, it means there is opportunity for improvement.
NEBS helps to reward this teamwork by making the top performing buildings visible – and the staff know they made a difference. All data received through NEBS is treated with utmost confidentiality and results are only made public for participants who agree to allow publication of their ranking. No other metric so holistically captures as many critical aspects of a web site – user design, usability, performance, convenience, ad effectiveness, net promoter score, customer satisfaction – all in a single measurement. Nearly every Internet company on the planet has invested in some form of the first activity, customer acquisition. First, the sheer intensity of the competition for effective AdWord inventory reduces the likelihood of a sustainably high ROI. Think of this as understanding how to optimize the performance of the customers you already have. In its most simplistic form, it is the ratio of customers that achieve some desired action or activity divided by the total number of visitors to your web site.
In 2013, we are in the midst of a critical platform transition from the browser-based Internet to mobile applications platforms like iOS and Android. Rarely will you find one single change that is going to have a 5% lift in conversion (you might if you have never tried, but this type of win will go away quickly).
Because improving conversion, even a little bit, can produce insane economic leverage for your business. With a large customer base, you are able to leverage any improvement against a much broader audience. Think about customer acquisition as buying fuel, and customer optimization as measuring the fuel efficiency of your engine. More specifically, clients aggregate all of their customer data points under one roof to provide truly personalized experiences across all platforms and devices (specifically including mobile). We are likely moving into an “age of enlightenment” where the scientific method is available to all, and ideas win (and are tested) on their empirical results. Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO) is the new retail merchandizing, topped with much better data than retail merchandizing had. What you presented was a very strong and compelling case to shift more of the focus on a website’s conversion rate. That’s why I started WiderFunnel in 2007 to focus on finding the best methods to radically lift conversion rates and revenue for companies in all industries. You already have my contact info, you know exactly what I bought – why not use that info and ask me for feedback about the product you just sold me?
The question is very specific and allows them to get data on the needs of their potential customers which they can later use throughout the site.
Imagine how much more that could be if they used that data to improve the copy leading to those chat pages? If you sell something technical or your offer raises questions than having live chat capability can help to reduce any friction to buying.
The product had been well received by the initial test group, it was delivering exactly what it promised.
A few days after purchasing a new car from an Audi dealer, Jason got an email from them asking to rate his experience of buying a new car.
How can we make it even better the next time?” They decided to go the other way and overwhelm the user.
But the point is that you have to take the time to craft a valuable customer survey to make it seem like a logical process. Using Live Chat solution O-Lark, Unbounce builds live support right into their app that helps them communicate with customers when they need it most. The very same product had always received at least 4 stars on Yelp and the online class over at Udemy had equally good rating. He has been doing traditional and digital marketing for the past 4 years in Europe and in the Middle East in mainly not-for-profit sector. Only 9 percent of enthusiasts were unsure, while 19 percent of non-enthusiasts said they didn’t know if the price was fair. And young buyers are more inclined to go shopping in search of a safer car or because of a lifestyle change.

And yet, younger buyers are more likely than older ones to make taking delivery of a new car their only trip to a dealer.
There are different types of satisfaction surveys that are designed for the evaluation of employees, products, customers, jobs and health care services. For this purpose, you have to include different functions of the products in the satisfactory survey to know the displeasing factors of customer with the product.
It will be a good choice to adopt funnel approach like start the survey with broad or general questions and then move toward specific questions of your survey. The Energy Barometer is a non-intrusive and cost-effective process to determine the energy consumption stance of a building in relation to others in a similar market and environment. Yet despite the remarkable power of this metric, it is alarming how few companies today truly understand conversion and how to optimize it.
This is the art of conversion: improve your site’s conversion and you simultaneously increase operating leverage AND increase competitive differentiation – a truly powerful combination. Your web site likely has a single overall conversion rate (the table below highlights one firm’s view of industry-by-industry “overall” conversion rates). This transition adds even more complexity to the conversion puzzle, as you now need to track and understand conversion on mobile as well. Compare Amazon’s one-click experience with an e-commerce site that requires five pages of information input in order to affect a sale.
Once again, this is something that needs to be measured all over your site and not just in one place. Rather you will find 30 things on a page that all have a tiny impact, and the overall impact, after months of work might be 5%.
Highly paid designers are employed to create beautiful web pages and mobile applications, and their opinions are coddled as divine wisdom.
The table inserted below looks at five leading consumer Internet companies – Blue Nile, TheKnot, C-Trip, Trip Advisor, and Priceline – and models what would happen if they improved conversion 10%. Even if you only achieved a 5% increase (versus the 10% we modeled), you would still see ROI in the 275%-1940% range. You can see this in the model – bigger companies get a bigger advantage, even when we estimate a 10X larger budget for conversion improvement. Ironically, many more companies focus on buying fuel in volume than they do improving fuel efficiency. If you have 2X the conversion rate on your competitor, than you can spend twice as much and get the same outcome. It’s such a strong value proposition that they have over 4,500 happy customers, including CBS, Disney, Starbucks, and many more. Using Sailthru, companies build 360-degree profiles of each and every user that can then be used to personalize emails, site and in-app experiences, search results, and more. With improved tools and techniques, and innovative products like Optimizely and Sailthru, highly optimized sites will redefine the new fitness level required to stay afloat in online businesses. That said, marketers still have to understand the new science of online conversion analytics. I even liked the companies you mentioned at the bottom of the article, but want to make sure you get a chance to see the next wave of conversion solutions that are about to make a big impact in the world of e-commerce.
I do agree conversion is something really really important but the surrounding factors give a much heavier impact on catching a user.
Or an inflated sense of self-importance that trickles down from the C-Suite that makes you think you know what I want so well that you can’t be bothered to ask me for my feedback. Here’s one: 80 percent of respondents were “very satisfied” or “extremely satisfied” with their dealership experience. Which is what kids have been doing forever—replacing a junker shortly after landing a decent-paying job. When asked if they would purchase a new car over the internet, 56 percent were disinclined to do so, matching the number of respondents over 55 who reject what is expected to someday be the Holy Grail of car commerce. The basic element of a satisfaction survey is its productivity according to the purpose of satisfaction survey.
Usually these types of surveys will help you to gauge the customer satisfaction and you will get high level reward for your best services.
As such, it is time to pound the table again – conversion is by far the most powerful Internet metric of all. Each year, your company will want to grow by a higher absolute dollar amount than the previous year, and as a result you will need to buy even more traffic.
However, in order to truly master conversion you have to understand that there is not just one conversion rate, but numerous conversion rates throughout your site.
The bad news is that the tools for doing mobile conversion measurement are immature at best. You have to be willing to toil in the minutia knowing that the impact on the overall system will be the combined result of many tiny little changes. Measuring the efficacy of their divine wisdom at 100 different places in your customer flow funnel can often prove to be controversial, and it can produce friction between the marketing department, who often owns customer optimization, and product development, which owns design. Just to make this clear, we are talking about moving from say a 6% overall conversion rate to 6.6%, or simply a 60 basis point increase in absolute conversion.
And for a 6% converting site, we are once again talking about a 30 basis point improvement in absolute conversion rate.
Likewise, if you have a poor conversion rate versus your competition, than you are bringing a knife to a gun-fight.
Optimizely’s product should be the fundamental building block for anyone that has any interest in conversion optimization.
Online publishers have seen 10-35% improvements in click through rates that regularly yield 30+% lifts in page views, resulting in substantial incremental ad revenue and profitability. So just to know what will the ratio you will assign with respect to conversion metric with other factors? Each of these questions can lead you to new partnerships & as your customer base grows, you will be provided with a continual source of new insights.
Will have to look at further segmenting the surveys as we only survey all buyers (first time or not) via e-mail and on-site exit surveys of non-buyers. If that contradicts conventional wisdom, it does explain why 68 percent of respondents would not buy or lease a vehicle without visiting a dealership and 84 percent would not buy or lease without a test drive. Key items, lengths and questions of the surveys may vary according to the nature and requirements of the survey. I rarely meet a company that hasn’t experimented with AdWords in some way, and most of those that do understand the basic math around the cost of customer acquisition.
The good news is that if you can master them at this early stage, you will have a significant competitive advantage.
You have to attack performance everywhere. There are also many who believe that site speed positively impacts SEO, and as a result, you have multiple reasons to care about this.
Not all organizations can operate with the proper amount of transparency and self-awareness, or have the patience to try a number of different approaches to produce very small incremental gains. Because conversion improvements impact the customer flow you already have, they lead to a direct increase in revenue, offset solely by the cost of running the conversion improvement effort. You should focus on fuel efficiency first, and when you know that it is solid, then you can start buying fuel in volume. Ever been a room where an entire team all agrees that your competitor must be an idiot because they are spending so much at such high rates on Google? The product is designed with a clear understanding that optimization is about experimentation, and it greatly lowers the cost and complexity of that experimentation. Commerce players have driven 6-10% lifts in average order values, 15%+ improvements in purchase frequency and major improvements in overall customer retention. Indeed, if the bricks-and-mortar dealership system is going to be overthrown, our survey indicates that Silicon Valley might ally with car enthusiasts.
If you are interested to design a satisfaction survey then it is necessary to include all vital contents in it to get accurate results.
If a site is designed to respond to my particular needs, I will obviously be more inclined to transact there.
The companies I have seen that are most successful with optimization are assiduous in their approach. You can build a similar model for your own business, and put in the inputs as you see fit, but you will not find another single area in your business where small improvements will have such a powerful impact.
Yet 90% of the companies I meet are buying and buying customers (acquisition) without any sophistication around understanding conversion (optimization).
The answer may be that they have a much higher conversion rate, and that you are eligible for the role of the idiot. Most importantly, Sailthru makes personalization achievable and scalable; a near-term reality versus a multi-year project that will never see the light of day. While only 34 percent of non-enthusiasts said they would purchase a car over the internet, 54 percent of enthusiasts would be inclined to do so. This is the dream of “big data” – to harness the information you already have to deliver a personalized experience for each user. We’ve highlighted more of these “significant statistical differences” (as our research department calls them) between enthusiasts and non-enthusiasts in the accompanying graphics. Likewise, if you know you have a conversion advantage, you also have an ad buying advantage. To truly understand conversion you need a “conversion matrix” for every path through your site.
