Petersfield-based company, Feefo was originated after it became evident that feedback was a vital ingredient in companies’ success. It was quickly realised that any business with an online presence could benefit from collecting customer feedback. In 2010, Feefo Holdings Limited was born, and has quickly become an award-winning technology player, with global recognition.
Co-founded by Andrew Mabbutt and Matt Eames, Feefo is a self-funded success story, which has collected over 25million reviews to-date, and provides reliable and verified customer insights for over 3,000 brands, including Expedia, AXA, The White Company, Moss Bros, Notonthehighstreet.com & Tepilo.
The company works with its clients to invite people who have engaged with a brand to leave feedback on a product or service, ensuring all data is genuine and real. It is this invitation only model that makes Feefo unique in the market and has enabled the company to become the trusted global brand it is today.
More and more businesses are starting to understand the importance of customer reviews. Feefo research has found that 75% of consumers are influenced by good feedback, and 85% of UK consumers will always check out online reviews before making a purchase.
Companies taking advantage of this include Monarch who saw a 3.01% uplift in revenue per visitor, and 2.94% increase in total flight bookings after placing the Feefo widget on the site. Additionally, The Fragrance Shop saw total sales increase by 9.4%, and website traffic increased by 38% after implementing Feefo reviews on product pages.
