Asking for customer feedback is not as time consuming or as complex as it seems, their are many ways to find out information about your guest. Using customer surveys is a simple way to gain valuable information and improve your marketing campaigns. Here are four reasons why you should email customer surveys after your guest has used your service:


Signpost "Customer Satisfaction"


Customer Loyalty
Understanding what your guest likes and dislikes about the service you are providing will attain you loyalty and referrals to other potential consumers. With Kigo´s mailchimp integration your customers can subscribe to your newsletters, receive your latest promotions,discounts and events.

Tip: Once a customer has subscribed to your newsletter use this as an opportunity to start building a relationship with them by directing them to like you on Facebook and follow you on Twitter. Find out here on how social media can support a vacation rental manager.

Customer Satisfaction

Word of mouth is the strongest form of advertising and guests who have used your service are more likely to speak about a negative experience than a positive experience. By surveying your customer you will have the opportunity to recover any issues helping you avoid negative reviews.

Tip: Ask your guests who have given positive feedback about your service to share their experience on Tripadvisor,, Facebook, Twitter or maybe even a video testimonial that you can use on Youtube or for your website!

Recognizing Trends
