Jennifer Maldonado of Activision Podcast InterviewIs this new “Anti-Yelp” company starting a revolution in gathering customer feedback?

Adam and Jeannie talk about Goodsnitch, a new company that allows businesses to gather honest customer feedback on a private basis.

Would customers rather contact you directly than “light you up” on Yelp or other public channels? Goodsnitch could make the difference for customers seeking real solutions instead of retribution, and for business owners who want a fair chance to make things right.

Jennifer Maldonado, Sr. Business Analyst & Voice of the Gamer program owner at Activision

Jennifer discusses how she implemented her Voice of the Customer expertise in the new Voice of the Gamer program at Activision. Is the approach to customer experience different in the video game industry?

Jennifer stresses the importance and benefits of handling customer issues in-channel as opposed to the traditional model of sending the customer to another channel, like a web page or phone number, or even another company, to solve an issue.

Jennifer also explains new ways to request customer feedback, and how rewording survey questions can make a huge difference when generating Customer Effort Scores.
