Two objectives were established: to determine the impact of the survey approach on product feedback and the significance of the monitoring strategy on product feedback. Seventy-seven responses were collected and authenticated from the registered participants, all of whom were Dangote flour consumers. Chi-Square statistical method was used to test the hypothesis (spss).
1.1Background of the study
Companies create, design, and implement diverse strategies to achieve a set of organizational goals and objectives. These may be corporate, business, or functional strategies. Marketing strategies are one of the functional strategies that modern businesses can employ to boost performance. Marketing has been described and imagined differently depending on the background, interest, and education of the author. For instance, marketing can be viewed as a matrix of business activities organized to plan, create, price, promote, distribute, and sell goods, services, and ideas in order to satisfy relevant customers and clients. Marketing strategy is essential to the success of any business, whether service- or product-based. A marketing strategy is a method used to attract customers by a company aiming to reach its target market. The corporation concentrates its limited resources on the largest prospects to expand sales and build a sustained competitive advantage based on market research (Nymous, 2006). Quantifying the return on investment from marketing expenditure on activities such as advertising, promotion, and distribution is one of the most complex issues facing decision makers. However, the marketing strategy must concentrate on delivering greater value to customers and the company at a lower cost.
Feedback marketing is the marketing department's practice of allowing customers to provide honest information about their experiences with a product or service. Companies that adopt customer feedback programs are attuned to their customers' needs. They establish customer loyalty to their products and companies. And when customers believe they have a voice, they are more loyal.
A corporation might become paralyzed by ignoring client input. Companies that are paralyzed are oblivious of client sentiments and upcoming developments. Therefore, it is vital that businesses develop ways for receiving customer feedback. Small businesses rely heavily on customer feedback. It informs you of what your consumers think of your products and services and gives a framework for improving any company flaws that effect customer happiness. A customer feedback plan consists of two primary components: collecting customer input and acting on that feedback. (https://smallbusiness.chron.com)
Create a plan that demonstrates to customers that you value their input. Provide an easy-to-use feedback system, such as a simple form on your website or a card that customers can mail for free. Offer clients an incentive, such as free entry into a prize draw, to provide feedback. Publish customer input on a product or service review page.
It is no secret that publishing customer testimonials on your website may be a tremendous asset to your organization. According to a Nielsen report, 70% of respondents trust online suggestions from complete strangers. This increases their likelihood of engaging with your brand further and becoming a potential customer. (Nielsen, 2011)
Customers who are already in the market are 90% more inclined to purchase a product after reading evaluations from past purchasers. If your marketing approach does not include any sort of consumer feedback, you are missing out on the powerful psychological factor of social proof. In light of this, the researcher wishes to explore how product feedback affects marketing strategy.
