Getting quality product feedback is essential when building or having just built a new product. This feedback can provide you with critical data that will ultimately drive your product strategy. With this type of feedback, users are not only looking for feedback from customers but also internal teams.
Keep in mind, however, that despite which tool you decide to use, there are a few things to look out for when collecting product feedback. For example, it is important to collect feedback from various sources as well as consistently. A wide range of sources can give you a more complete picture of how the product or feature is received by the customer or team member. Additionally, collecting product feedback consistently will help you quickly spot trends and be able to iterate faster.

Let’s take a look at Mopinion’s top 8 most popular product feedback tools:
The UserVoice is a product feedback tool that is used frequently by marketers to generate and/or vote on ideas for new features of the website or mobile app. A nice thing about this tool is that visitors can submit feedback without having to register beforehand. It also includes a ‘search-as-you-type’ application that enables visitors to see if someone else has experienced the same problem. Users can then vote on feedback and start up discussions about the items. UserVoice provides the option to manage and moderate forums as well.
Pricing: Available upon request.
Intercom serves as a behavioural targeting and intelligence platform. By way of live segmentation (live information on customer behaviour), this product feedback tool provides the user with details such as who is using the product and can send out in-app messages and behaviour-driven emails. Users of this tool can also manage any support requests that come up from any channel via a team inbox.
Pricing: There are a number of different packages that only give access to certain features (e.g. sending targeted messages). The full package is $155/month
