Closing thoughts

Current economic uncertainty will undoubtedly lead to tough financial decisions for your customers . In the coming months, large segments of your customer base will likely be asking themselves, “Where can we cut costs?” and “Do we still need to purchase this product or service?”

As a product manager, how do you keep your customer base together as they cut costs and you work with less resources? 

  1. Commit to continuous learning by seeking out product management resources that focus on resource maximization, product prioritization, and how to put the customer first. 
  2. Continuously listen to your customers, so that you are equipped with the feedback needed  to make product and experience decisions that customers care about. 

If you need assistance collecting customer feedback or acting on it, let us help! Request an Apptentive demo or start your free trial today.
