Customer feedback can improve products and services

And here are some additional thoughts on this topic…

Not long ago I was reviewing the website of a software developer. His product is used on thousands of websites (including and is considered by many to be the best in its class. (You can count me as one of that “many”.)

As good as this product is, the developer, Chris Pearson, is always improving it. One of the ways he does that is by getting feedback from his customers. Here’s an example that tells the story well:

“Figure 2 is especially interesting because Bruce, who is very technically savvy, was unhappy with the way his site ran on Thesis 1.4.2. In fact, his discontent was the primary reason why I set out to make Thesis 1.5 a model of efficiency. Since Bruce is a trusted friend (and also the very first Thesis customer!), I couldn’t help but deliver on this one, and now the entire theme is better thanks to his feedback. (Emphasis added.)

The last line tells it all. This top quality product, praised by experts across the Internet was made better by feedback from a trusted customers.

Who are your trusted customers? How often do you ask them for feedback that can improve your service or product? Can you do more?
