45% Improvement Suggestions come via Product’s Guide Page


After a success purchase, most of the customers look for a handbook or guide or knowledge base to learn about using the product. Some of them may have questions related to the basic use of the product but some may have good suggestions. A real user of the product is the best source of input for a product. I am have a pretty good documentation of Documentor WordPress plugin but still people come with questions and even sometimes with eye opener feature request. In last few months, I saw most of the feature requests coming from the suggestion box embedded on the guide page. 5 out of 10 suggestions came from the guide page, rest came via support thread and direct email.

Once the user starts using the product, he starts facing challenges or starts expecting more out of the product. And if he finds certain mentions about the feature in guide, he jumps to the suggestion or feedback form and submit the request (if that kind of form is available). If you have seen the demo of Documentor WordPress plugin, you must have seen the suggestion box at the end of each guide or section. It allows visitors to fill up the form about the guide and ask the admin to either improve the guide page or the product itself.

Once you have the inputs from the visitor or probable customer, you can implement the same in product and get back to the user. Finally that inclusion of the feature will certainly convert a valuable visitor into a loyal customer and will eventually improve the product for existing users as well.

Similar suggestion form is also available in every Google product’s guide. The reason of having such form is same,

  • Improve the product guide page
  • Receive product improvement suggestions

My another site which is having premium WordPress sliders is also having guides created using Documentor plugin. I received many suggestions from existing customers or newbies via the suggestion box and it improved the slider products from all directions. Customers felt that we as a team heard their concerns and suggestion and improved the product.

Timely Inclusion of Customer’s Feedback and Suggestion is one of the main reason of success for Xiaomi, a leading mobile brand.

It becomes very hard to shoot your query at the support each time and then one should wait for the support team to revert on the same. There are times when you are asked to wait in a queue for at least 2 days (approximately 48 hours). During such situations you are forced to delay the work unless the query is sorted. In order to avoid such situations that is affecting the growth of the company, it is always good to have a documentation of the product and all the queries will get sorted very easily by just referring to the documentation.

Types of Product Documentation:

  • Documentation Update – Keep a check on the new features and modification that are added for the product. And accordingly there can be the changes that can be added for the documentation. If the changes for the document is not done than the visitors will keep on referring the old documents and will be confused.

Key Factors to be included for Product Documentation:

  • Installation Process – It is essential to start your documentation with the installation process that will be a great help to the clients.
  • Feedback from Clients – It is good to include the feedback and suggestion place for the visitors where they can suggest an edit for the document. This will help to represent the document in a better way.
  • Offline Reading – For the offline reading of the document, one can generate a PDF for it and can directly share with others for the offline reading.
  • URL for each section – The whole document can be divided into different sections and there can be different URLs for each of the section. Instead of reading the whole doc one can directly refer to the URL of the section and thus it will be time saving.
  • Simplicity – No one likes to read the long documents, one always prefers to have the document which are simple and easy to understand. Also it is good to explain each of the section point wise so that clients will find it easy to understand.
