Consistency is Key When Responding to Customer Satisfaction

Timely response to feedback from customer satisfaction surveys is the key to improving overall customer satisfaction

misinterpret-customer-feedback-survey-resultsThe ability to respond to customer feedback  in a timely manner is one of the main advantages of online and mobile customer satisfaction surveys. When gathering customer feedback, for example, their level of satisfaction with your products & services, a higher level of immediacy should be taken. Reacting to customer feedback immediately has become standard-business-practice for improving customer satisfaction on a respondent-by-respondent basis.

How can you respond immediately to those customers? This is where triggered email alerts come in very handy. Triggered email alerts are come in very useful when you want to receive notifications each time a specific action takes place in a customer satisfaction survey. You can program your survey to send triggered email alerts to specified email addresses when a respondent chooses a particular answer to a question or a set of questions. The person (or persons) in your organization receiving the triggered email alerts is able to immediately respond through a follow-up phone call or email.  Continue reading

Writing for the Small Screen? The Importance of Minimizing Question Length

Survey design can be a challenge when designing questionnaires for small screen sizes

Consider the following open-ended question:

Other than cost or price, if there was one thing that Organization X could do to help you and your business in the future, what would that be?

There isn’t too much wrong with the wording. It’s clear and easily understood. However, there is one thing that can be done to improve it. The question can be made shorter. For example:

Apart from changing prices, what one thing could Organization X do better?

adaptive-questionnairesThe revised wording is considerably shorter but the meaning has been retained. The responses you’d get are unlikely to differ greatly from the original question.

Across all survey methods, from face-to-face to online, shorter questions have always been better. Respondents don’t want to have to read or listen to long lines of text. Shorter questions make surveys feel faster in pace. Respondents feel more involved and provide a better quality of response.  Continue reading

6 Potential Question Issues When Developing Your Feedback Solution

6 Potential Question Issues When Developing Your Feedback Solution

feedbacksolution-survey-softwareMany survey software and feedback solutions providers offer solutions for multi-mode administration of surveys and forms – online, paper, scanning, mobile, kiosk, face-to-face interview, or a combination of research modes. Each mode of research can gather valuable feedback, and has its own advantages and disadvantages. When developing any feedback tool, no matter what mode, you will want to take potential question issues into consideration as you plan your research.

The types of questions that you want to ask respondents, the chosen topics for discussion, and the volume of feedback you can expect will likely determine your mode of survey research.

Consider these 6 important question issues when planning your feedback research.

  1. What types of questions do you plan to ask respondents? The types of questions you ask can have an impact on response rates. Will you ask personal or demographic questions? Do you require very detailed responses? Can you anticipate what the most frequent or important types of responses will be, and develop logical closed-ended questions?
  2. Will your questions be complex? At times, the topic or subject matter can be very involved. The questions you ask will be multifaceted. Consider branching to sub-questions or route respondents to questions that are relevant to them based on answers given in previous questions. Continue reading

Snap Surveys guest blogger, Gary Austin of Austin Research discusses reasons why good questionnaire design isn’t celebrated in his blog post, Why don’t we celebrate good questionnaire design? (below).    Continue reading
