Over the past month I have written quite a bit on Customer Relationship Management (CRM). It’s amazingly easy to rebuke someone else’s CRM practices. But what do you see when you look into the mirror? This.

A reader signed up today for my email subscription service. Upon receiving the notification, I promptly sent out an email that read:

Hello,

Thanks for signing up. I think we haven’t met before although you probably know a lot about me through my blog. Would like to know more about you.

Regards,
Vinaya

I received an equally prompt reply.

Hi Vinaya,

Good to hear frm you (hope this is not a auto-reply). Just started reading thru u’r blog…

- Reader X

Eeeeeks! Auto-reply? No. I typed each and every letter, albeit sounding like a robot.

While I generally pride myself on the CRM activities I do for my blog, today’s experience proved that you cannot be lax, even for a moment. In this particular situation, I might be exaggerating, but hey, in the real world if you’re unlucky, it takes just one bad experience to become an avalanche.

And, that’s the purpose of this post – to measure customer, or more appropriate, reader satisfaction. I’d be delighted if you could answer another quick survey and let me know how good/bad my CRM is. It shouldn’t take you more than a couple of minutes.

I’ll be collating these results with those from my previous survey (where you told me what you would like to read) and plan a road map for GEO 12.97°N 77.56°E.
