You must stay close to your customers, especially now. Back by popular demand, a special year-end offer from Hometown Connections and GreatBlue Research will help your municipal utility learn firsthand what your customers need and expect. Place your order by December 31 and for the incredibly low fee of $3,850, you will receive a link to send to your customers to fill out a brief online survey.
Turn Opinion Into Action
Surveys allow community-owned utilities like yours to view the unfiltered impressions, whether positive or not-so-positive, about the service your customers experience. Survey data also provides the information you need to make important business decisions. Customer opinion data drives improvements to service delivery and ensures you design programs your community will value.
Out-of-the-Box Digital Survey With 20 Questions Ready To Go
This survey link is ready and may be distributed right away. You may use each of your communication methods—email, social media, bill insert, website, and/or text message—to distribute the survey link. Your customers will access a survey web page featuring your logo.
To keep your costs low, this is a one-size-fits-all survey for which GreatBlue has thoughtfully selected questions based on extensive experience in the utility industry. The study will help you factor in customer opinion research when making utility management decisions. In 2020, over 12,000 customers provided their municipal utility with valuable feedback as part of this offering.
The $3,850 ready-to-go customer survey from GreatBlue contains 20 questions and covers:
- Customer satisfaction—gauges overall satisfaction with the utility/customer service/field service reps
- Communication preferences—assesses all types of methods including email, bill insert, website, and social media
- #1 Priority for Utility—measures interest in innovations such as EVs, rooftop solar, microgrids, and time-of-use rates
- Impact of Working From Home—reveals how often customers work from home and on which days, perceptions of changes in energy consumption, and the percentage of customers who have shifted to remote work since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic
- Demographics—age, gender, household income
Web Portal For Reviewing Results
GreatBlue will give you access to a web portal to track the survey results online in real-time. Use the data to drive decisions, take action, and implement plans and initiatives for 2022 and beyond.
To take advantage of this year end special offer for an off-the-shelf digital customer survey at a low price, send an email to email@example.com. We will send you the survey instrument upon request.
