How to build brand awareness with surveys

Taking every opportunity to build brand awareness.

How many times have you taken a survey and the company soliciting your feedback barely mentions their name on the survey form or thank you page? I bet a lot. In the last week alone, I received three customer feedback surveys from well -known organizations. Aside from the email invitations, I could not see any reference to their brand, except when mentioned in a question.

Branding your firm when surveying your customers should not be taken lightly. The consumer has already interacted with your organization in some fashion. So there is already affinity in the mind of the consumer. You can build on that brand awareness by incorporating your organization’s slogan or tag line in the invitation.

Also, make sure the email invitation is delivered in a timely basis. This ensures the consumer can remember what transpired in that last interaction with an employee of yours.

Build brand awareness during the survey too

Once you get the consumer to the actual survey, display your organization’s logo and use its color schemes to strengthen your brand awareness. Depending on the survey vendor you use, there there’s flexibility designing the survey page from using a variety of colors, multiple font types, images and size parameters. Think of the survey as one part gaining business intelligence and one part marketing for future spends.

After the survey has been submitted, reinforce your brand again on the Thank You page. This page gives you the freedom to position your brand again. It allows you to drive the consumer to a specific page on your website. Or, position a marketing message for a new product just coming to the market place soon.

The overall goal in delivering a strong customer feedback experience is to condition the consumer for purchasing more of your product in the future. And, of course, to tell all their friends they should do the same. So when in doubt, brand yourself.
