As part of our annual U.S. consumer benchmark study, we asked respondents how they give feedback to organizations following either a very good or very bad experience. We found that customers prefer to contact the company in different ways depending on whether they are reporting about a positive experience or a negative one. 

For example, after a very good experience, 56% of the customers who shared feedback with the company did so by filling out an online survey. After a very bad experience, on the other hand, 53% of customers who contacted the company emailed it directly to give their feedback. 

This consumer benchmark study surveys a representative sample of 10,000 U.S. consumers about their interactions with 342 companies across 21 industries.
