There are many ways to gather feedback and information to make your business or organization more successful. The traditional way of collecting this information has been to create a paper survey. However, advancements in technology and growing concerns for the environment have prompted the development of web surveys.
Web surveys are both more efficient and more effective than paper surveys in several ways. Online surveys are easy to design, eco-friendly and cost-effective in addition to being easy to analyze. Create a detailed, professional survey with minimal resources using Cvent's simple 5-step wizard. Eliminate paper waste and postage fees by gathering all business intelligence electronically. Unlike paper surveys, you can increase survey response rates with personalized emails/reminders, and quickly produce colorful charts and graphs of accurate, real-time data.
Cvent offers unlimited questions per survey. You may ask as many questions as necessary to gather the information you need. Our recommendation is to pose 30 questions or fewer.
Cvent's Basic survey license includes two surveys; the Premium, Professional, and Enterprise licenses offer unlimited surveys. Send as many surveys as you wish to various target audiences including clients, association members, employees, website visitors, educational institutions, students, and event attendees.
Avoid asking pointed questions. Instead, ask open-ended questions that will get respondents thinking and willing to provide more relevant information. Pipe respondents' answers into later questions to customize them; this encourages elaboration on these earlier responses. Customize questions based on address book contact information in order to increase response rates.
Questions should be simple, short and direct. They should be written with commonly understood terms in order promote consistent interpretation. For those using scale-based questions, the Cvent Response Library can help create scales that are uniform throughout the survey.
You can also enable colleagues to insert comments on your test surveys so that they can provide feedback that will ensure the questions are not misleading or biased. Cvent's relationship managers are also available to provide assistance in refining your questions and responses and in selecting the appropriate demographic for your survey.
Respondents can be significantly influenced by sending personalized email invitations and reminders. Cvent provides users with over 40 standard and custom personalization tags such as Name, Title and Company. Create custom distribution lists to target messaging, for example, formal messaging for executives and informal messaging for associates. Test messaging effectiveness by sending emails to targeted groups, then modifying subject lines and content accordingly.
In some cases, Cvent clients have also found that offering an incentive for filling out surveys has helped to increase response rates. However, Cvent also realizes that offering an incentive is not a possibility for all surveys.
