Your actions will have a much higher impact if they fit in a story you live every day.
Your feedback will be taken more seriously if it’s part of a more general attempt to genuinely help move the situation forward.
Your survey will get a better response rate if it’s framed in an ongoing effort to better understand and serve.
Your marketing will be more effective if it’s part of a strategy that aims at generating value for the prospect at every step of their journey.
Your message might actually be heard if it’s the bit of a story your audience has been waiting for and cannot do without.
Of course, for all of this to be possible, you need to spend a considerable amount of time tryin to understand the other(s).
The alternative, though, is to share your opinion every time you do not get things your way, to send out a survey without having set the stage for it in the months before, to run campaign after campaign tweaking for conversion, to forge the message with what we have in mind.
It happens every day, almost everywhere. And it drives us crazy when it is done to us.
