Five tips for business surveys

  1. Send out a survey after a specific transaction. Let your customers know you care about every transaction by sending a survey right after you’ve engaged with them. You’ll get great information from a fresh source. Just after a sale is great time to find out your Net Promoter Score.
  2. Follow best practices. How to write a good survey question is more of a science than an art. Choose the types of survey questions that fit your needs, and stay away from questions that might introduce bias.
  3. Offer incentives. Little incentives like a small discount or an entry into a drawing can make the difference between a completed market research survey and a blank one.
  4. Try engaging a different audience. With SurveyMonkey Audience, you’ll can choose the demographic that you wish to target with a survey.
  5. Use the filter tools. Our filtering tools let you look at your data any way you want. Compare your survey response data right in SurveyMonkey or export the data to view it using your favorite software.
