Listen to your customers and enhance products based on their feedback


Even with the best laid plans, some MVP releases do not hit the mark with customers. There are key features that competitors have, the use cases are not quite properly aligned with reality, or poor assumptions were made during the product management process. The good news is you can recover from these things with effective monitoring and feedback processes. Your customers want the product to be as successful as you do, and when they reach out to you to tell you something is wrong, how you use that information will dictate the success of the product. Drop the feedback in a database for consideration and your competitor gains market share. Communicate the problem and address appropriately and you have another loyal customer.
