Our new e-book "The Startup’s Guide to Customer Service" is here

Do you ever wonder why some startups are wildly successful but other, equally promising ones, fail spectacularly? A great concept, capital, passionate employees, and a private chef can only get you so far. Sometimes the difference between killing it and dying on the vine comes down to something really simple. Like fast, helpful customer service. “To be successful in today’s marketplace, it’s essential that you have awesome customer service,” says Kraig Swensrud, founder of GetFeedback, which makes engaging, mobile-ready online surveys.
