2 types of feedback messages; private and public
As a business owner, you will get feedback. Some will be good, others will be less positive. Either way it is important to always respond. In this short article, we will give some inspiration on how you can respond to feedback.
In general, there are 2 types of messages and feedback, the private and the public ones. For private ones, it is a good idea to set up an automatic “Thank you, we will get back as very soon as possible” response to buy you some extra time, and at the same time manage expectations. For public messages and feedback, you will also find some hands-on examples to help you prepare templates, so it is easy and quick to reply when needed.
