Surveys are powerful tools used to collect feedback from your customers. They can provide insights on what your customers are thinking about after completing a transaction with your company, or how they feel about your brand. This type of qualitative information explains the behavior and motivations of your customers and complements the quantitative and transactional data you collect.
