Why your company should write thank you notes

We love getting feedback. Each time someone lets us know why they love or hate our website, it’s like a miniature usability test. We find out about tech issues, learn how members use the website or why someone doesn’t want to sign up for a free account. It also gives us the chance to connect with a Mojo Motors fanatic or detractor.  When detractors let us know they aren’t digging us, we have a unique opportunity to turn them into fanatics. Sometimes this is impossible, but in many cases, simply responding to a detractor is all that it takes. Mostly because detractors aren’t accustomed to actually hearing back from a company. It’s how we are trying to make this whole process of shopping for a car online more personal and hopefully help us become known as the best way to find a used car or truck online.
