How To Use Post-It Notes To Prompt Customer Action06.02.2023
Have you ever considered the Post-It Note as a powerful business tool? If your answer is no, you aren’t alone. The Post In Note is not always given enough credit for what it is capable of. If you want to get customers and leads to be a little more responsive to your messages, requests, and solicitation, then you may want to consider using Post-It Notes.
Why Are Post-It Notes So Successful At Prompting Customer Action?
A large study was done to see how people would respond to a request for a survey, and the Post It Note was tested.
To complete this study, the survey was sent in a variety of ways:
- The simple survey, no Post-It Notes, and no handwritten note on the front of the survey
- Handwritten note on the front of the survey
- Standard Post It Notes on front of the survey
- Customized Post It Note with a personalized message on the front of the survey
What was discovered was that the surveys with the Post It Notes on the front had return rates that were 25% or higher than the survey without the Post It Notes. In addition, the surveys with customized or personal notes were even more likely to increase customer interaction.
The Post-It Note helps a customer focus on exactly what they need to focus on. It dials in their attention and makes them feel more connected as if their information is needed and respected.
