How does PowerReviews Store Experience Feedback work?

Invite existing real-life customers on in-store “missions” – specific assignments of your choosing, be this a typical browse and buy in-store interaction, BOPIS/Curbside/in-store return transaction or whatever process or experience you want to optimize.


As part of the process, you are able to incentivize your customers to complete surveys with coupons or other benefits.


Because these individuals are invested in your brand, they not only have the context to provide you with the most insightful feedback possible but they also want to help you improve. And – what’s more – they typically make a purchase when on a mission.


So not only does PowerReviews Store Experience deliver the most insightful and actionable feedback possible, it also drives revenue.

Store Experience Feedback: In Detail

Store Experience Feedback at Scale

Because our methodology leverages your entire customer base, it enables you to project your program across geographies, territories and use cases in a cost-effective manner. Measure holistically, compare different parts of your entire operation or isolate to specific problem locations.

You do not pay people to complete our “missions”. By leveraging your existing customer base, you tap into a community that is invested in your brand and motivated to help you improve. In contrast to traditional mystery shopping, every customer who participates will make you money rather than cost you.

Capture feedback about store layout, store cleanliness, interaction with associates, product findability, checkout experience, parking lot condition and whatever else you want to know about the in-store experience.

Interactions that blend in-store and digital channels are a must in today’s omnichannel world. Our store experience feedback program enables you to fully understand the effectiveness of your BOPIS, curbside, in-store pick up, store delivery and return processes by selectively engaging customers who routinely use these services.

There are numerous ways to capture feedback from customers who visit your stores and make a purchase. Reaching non-buyers is much harder but also way more valuable (how else are you going to be able to turn them into buyers?). Due to our unique methodology, PowerReviews Store Experience captures significant volumes of insight from this group. Fully understand non-buyer behavior and make appropriate adjustments.

Solicit both subjective and objective feedback across stores. In other words, combine fact-based questions (e.g. “were you met by an associate within two minutes of entering?”) with opinion-based questions (“what made you happy about your visit”?) to get the best of both worlds. Dig deeper to understand not just what is happening in the store, but also what behaviors actually impact customer sentiment.

50% of customers who complete a PowerReviews Store Experience Feedback “mission” also make a purchase, even though it’s not required
99% of consumers asked to by a retailer to participate in a Store Experience Feedback “mission” also opt in to further missions

Strengthen Customer Relationships

Consumers love our store experience feedback program. In fact, 99% of those asked to participate opt in for future missions. That’s because they make customers feel valued and heard, which creates a happy and engaged two-way relationship that strengthens brand advocacy.

Repeat customers typically have a deep, emotional attachment to your brand. Strengthen your relationships with these critical brand advocates by leveraging them as an extension of your own team through invitations to participate in exclusive research opportunities.

Maximize loyalty by becoming truly customer led. Uncover key insights from this critical group and adjust your future strategic direction accordingly.

By encouraging participation with loyalty-based incentives (e.g. discounts and coupons), missions create an even stronger customer attachment. Because they are structured in this way, you also end up increasing traffic and sales while reducing cost-per-mission.

Technology-Enabled Innovation

Run your entire store experience program from our powerful technology platform.

PowerReviews Store Experience allows you to target the appropriate audience from within your existing customer base to get feedback on experiences that matter most to them.

PowerReviews Store Experience Feedback is a mobile-first solution. This means customers are intended to provide their feedback while in the store or immediately after their visit when it’s fresh of mind – all while making the process easy and seamless for your customers direct from their phones.

Dig deep into the data to understand the actionable issues impacting your store experience. Clearly understand what’s working and what isn’t working across your entire network and why. Isolate and identify problems and opportunities and then prioritize action accordingly.

Consolidate your technology vendors by capturing, analyzing and sharing all your store experience feedback (i.e. all post-transaction, non-buyer and mission-driven survey data) from a single enterprise-grade platform.
