A well-designed logo can put you far above the competition, especially when paired with a strong marketing program.

Determine what you need to know. For example, what do they like or dislike about your product or service? How do they feel about the way your company handles complaints? Are they repeating customers? Why or why not?
Use one or more survey methods to measure customer satisfaction, such as direct mail, telephone calls, or focus groups (groups of 6-10 people who share their ideas about your product or service).

Have employees keep ongoing written records of customer compliments and complaints. Review these at staff meetings.
Once you know what your customers want, make the adjustments and improvements necessary to keep them coming back.
