It’s a fact that monitoring or managing customer reviews is not among the top 10 priorities for email marketers to improve the deliverability of their emails. This is a really frustrating situation, as comment management allows email marketers to improve the most important quality of email, which is to provide a direct interface between customers and email marketers.
When a factor as important as this disables readers and makes your program vulnerable to threats like spam reports and leaves you with a list containing many invalid or dead addresses. Many email marketers forget that relevancy is critical to improving email deliverability, resulting in a missed opportunity to make email campaigns more relevant and relevant to subscribers.
Even if some email marketers are under the impression that they are doing an excellent job of receiving and responding to people’s comments and questions through means such as letters, phones, or websites. Email marketers sometimes overlook the few customers who put “do not reply” to their emails in the subject line because no one will see it or the email is being carefully monitored.
While the very thought of ending customer contact brings pain to the heart of many email marketers, there are some good email marketers who take both negative and positive feedback right and try to improve. It has been observed that a good email program always asks for feedback at the end with a link to a feedback or customer service form, or provides customer support phone numbers. Again, good managers tend to pay attention to feedback, no matter what channel it comes from.
Even though the email clearly says not to reply, it is a fact that some customers will always reply to an email. So restricting customers to only certain channels kills the relationship you’re trying to build in the long run. It also affects deliverability. Think of it this way: when you try to shut down a communication channel, you lose a channel for customer information that could help you improve your efforts.
Effective feedback management does not stop there. simply responding to customer comments, complaints, or questions you receive in response to your email, purchases, or any other interaction you have had with a customer. But effective feedback management involves extra effort and extra effort to reach customers who solicit feedback and surveys from your customers through offers, newsletters, web links, and email transactions.
When you search for testimonials or customer reviews, you get valuable information that can not only help you reach your market goals, but at the same time also address emails that cause customer dissatisfaction and affect your delivery ability. But you need to be careful not to overdo it with customer surveys. Rather, email marketers should pay attention to the 4 main touchpoints where they are most likely to receive valuable feedback. First, when customers subscribe to your email program. The second point of interaction is two or three months later when you need to contact your client to draw their attention to the email program, which may have been different from the email program. The third and very important moment of interaction is when customers contact you with complaints, regardless of the means of interaction. The fourth point of interaction is when customers contact you due to a sudden increase in spam emails; You can use this as an opportunity to survey clients.
Last but not least, an effective key to better feedback management is collaborating across departments in your company to share data and improve your email program overall.
