Tips to remember before launching your survey


Not everyone is a survey expert, it’s why we did the hard work for you and created over 50 templates to choose from. But if you do need to tweak it for whatever reason or start from scratch, here are a few tips to keep in mind.

Start with why

What do you hope to achieve with your survey? Asking this will confirm if you’re using the correct template and asking the right questions to the right audience.

Make it easy, attractive and simple

Three well established behavioral approaches will ensure you maximize your responses and collect relevant data. This includes making sure you use the right question types too. Our free survey maker has multiple question options so you shouldn’t feel stuck to one.

Avoid bias in your survey

When launching your survey, make sure you don’t provide too much information or disclose what you want the study to show.

Keep it timely

It’s important to avoid survey respondent fatigue or failure to complete, so make sure your survey isn’t unnecessarily long. Some surveys will need to be longer than others so review the length on a case by case basis.

Pre-test your survey

Before launching your survey, make sure it runs smoothly, questions are easy to understand and design details like mobile-optimization work as intended.

Distribute your survey

Once you’ve acted on feedback from the testing stage, you can confidently launch your survey across multiple channels and watch the responses pour in.

Powerful + personal

Choose up to 8 question types and 15 questions per survey so you can ask the right questions, in the right format, at the right time. Distribute through multiple channels including email and online, to meet respondents where they are.
