Here is a summary of the workshop with Ole Martin.

We have 3 forms of user reviews:

  1. The customer receives an email/text message with questions about rating the product from 1-5 stars (product review)
  2. The customer receives an email/text message with questions about rating the store experience from 1-5 stars (store review)
  3. The customer receives an email/text message with questions about rating the online store experience from 1-5 stars (service review)

These three forms of user reviews provide large amounts of data, which can be used throughout the organization. Provided it is done correctly. The data set must be large, complete and based on verified buyers for you to be able to trust the data. If not, you get a useless data set.
