Getting customer feedback and integrating that feedback to improve your business is so important. Providing personal service and integrating feedback helps build life-long customer relationships and helps your business attract new customers. Let’s say you’d like to create a follow-up survey and personally greet your customer by first name when they take the survey. This is particularly useful if you’d like to use a survey to follow up after a sales call, or after a customer uses your service.

You can pipe this seeded data into a custom start message. Here’s how to do it. You would first need to append a tag with the customer’s first name into the survey URL and then pass that information into the custom start message.

Then, you would place the [Q1 first_name] tag in your custom start message, like so:

Additionally, seeding Gus’ first name in this manner will pre-populate his first name in question one:

Pretty nifty, no?
