It is pretty hard to serve customers properly unless we are listening to them — and communication is definitely a two-way street.
As Cynthia Clark writes in 1to1 Magazine: “Listening to customers is a must. However, listening isn’t enough.

It’s imperative then for business leaders to establish a robust voice-of-the-customer strategy to manage and respond to the flood of customer feedback and communication.
