WHY DO COMPANIES NEED ONLINE SURVEYS
So, the question is why do companies need online surveys and why are they willing to pay for it? Well the answer is simple, Customer Feedback / Opinion.
Most companies take customer feedback very seriously as a tool of improvement in its existing products /services, to increase its own sales by acting upon the customer’s experiences of the product/service.
The opinions become even more important when companies want to judge the market viability of a product/service before its launch and to make changes in the product as per the demand of the market.
