The main objective of any trade show exhibit is to engage with attendees, build new relationships, generate a good number of sales leads, and collect business contacts. With the rise in popularity of mobile surveys, surveying trade show attendees just got easier.
Build a Lead Qualification Survey
A trade show lead qualification survey is really nothing more than a customer profiling form. When respondents provide answers to a pre-developed set of qualification questions and contact information, you’re collecting extremely valuable information that is used for the purpose of generating new sales.
When you capture trade show attendee data as part of a lead qualification survey, you’re creating warm leads – customers who have heard or recall something about your company. Warm leads are much easier to convert to the next stage in the sales process (as opposed to cold leads or cold calling). Warm leads are at least willing to have a conversation with you about your products and services. Continue reading →
Why is it important to develop a plan for your online survey?
A survey begins when an individual or organization is challenged with a business problem and the existing data, if accessible, has inadequate data. At this moment, the survey researcher or survey research team will need to consider if the necessary data can be collected by administering a survey, and in what mode: paper survey, online survey, mobile survey, etc. If the requirements include: responses from a number of people; quick turnaround on results; and collect specific information to support a business decision, then an online survey is the most appropriate method of data collection.
A well-planned survey project plan will help focus your plan objectives, map your implementation, and prepare you for data analysis. Proper planning will result in an effective and efficient survey project plan. Gathering the data you need will allow you to focus on implementing well-supported business decisions.
A clearly devised survey project plan will answer the following questions: Continue reading →

The costs of paper, printing, and postage are all on the rise. Recent post office closures and rate hikes confirm that. Given these expense factors, many businesses are considering shifting some, if not all of their surveys to online. The costs savings alone by switching to online surveys are a significant motivator to make the change. For some organization, the decision is a difficult one. Some target populations may not be receptive to strictly online surveys, making the transition a difficult decision. The debate between which is more effective: paper-based surveys or online surveys continues.
How does each mode of survey research fare in your market? Can your research remain valid if you switch to one mode of survey research, but leave the other behind? Take into consideration the following factors. Continue reading →

The overall success of your survey depends greatly on a good quality response rate. The higher the response rate, the more representative the survey will be of the total population. Ideally, a higher than anticipated response rate will bring more assurance and reliability to the survey results. A higher response rate also allows more robust statistical calculations to be performed. In contrast, a response rate that falls short of the anticipated response rate may bring into question the dependability and representativeness of the survey data. Receiving a low response rate from your survey will skew the results due to response bias, as certain types of people are more likely to respond to surveys than others, so certain views may triumph.
By following these simple guidelines, you can considerably increase the number of respondents who complete your survey. Here are some actions you can take to maximize response rates. Continue reading →
If designed and administered properly, employee surveys can provide invaluable feedback to any organization and be an effective performance management tool. Organizations can use employee survey data to create strategies to improve staff retention and increase productivity, as well as provide a benchmark to measure continued improvement.
When developing your survey, whether it’s an online survey, paper survey, kiosk or mobile survey, questions relating to opinions, values, and attitudes require careful consideration. Because these are subjective questions about the thought processes and feelings of a respondent, they are not directly verifiable through external observation. Continue reading →
