Tips for Creating a Standout Questionnaire

1

Keep it Simple and Consistent

A guaranteed way to ensure that your questionnaire lies dormant and unused is by having too many confusing questions. When you sit down to write the queries that will make up your online questionnaire questions, be sure to keep your questions simple, pointed, and consistent.

Consider how you would ask the same question to someone in person. Would you ramble on about all the various aspects of your question and the reasons behind asking, or would you save time and simply ask their quick opinion? Keep in mind that real people with limited time are choosing whether or not to fill out your questionnaire based on their first impression.

2

Keep It Short and Sweet

Have you ever been approached on the street and asked to give your opinion - only to discover that the “short survey” is a long list of questions? In our busy day and age, nobody has the extra time to fill out a long and complex questionnaire - especially if there is no incentive to do so.

By keeping your online questionnaire short and simple, you will ensure that customers actually take the time to fill out your form with quality answers. As a rule of thumb, keep most online questionnaires to a five-minute maximum length. This is especially true if you intend on using the mobile-friendly features of AidaForm’s online questionnaire builder.

3

Keep It Strategic and Shareable

Creating a free online questionnaire with AidaForm allows you to quickly and easily share your questionnaire across a variety of today’s most popular online services. However, it’s no help to simply gather a ton of responses that are not related to your business or product. Make sure to develop a strategy for how you will launch and share your online questionnaire so that those who are supposed to fill it out actually see it - and their responses aren’t lost in the deluge of answers.

Take the time to research your business or organization’s demographics and audience to ensure that your form lives in the best locations across the internet. As your form begins to generate responses, analyze the data and see if your current strategy is successful, or if you need to switch things up a bit.

4

Keep It Satisfying and Rewarding

One of the most difficult aspects of any online form or questionnaire is convincing people to actually start the process and complete it! If you have followed the steps above, you already have a form that should be ready for responses. However, if you need to add a bit more push behind your respondents, consider including an incentive for completing the online questionnaire.

What makes a great incentive? Giftcards, giveaways, and discounts are great ways to ensure that responses flow in. Make sure to notify users upfront that their honest, full responses will make them eligible to win - and be sure to follow through on your promises. Consider including phrases such as “Complete to earn exclusive discounts…” or “Enter to win by filling out our questionnaire online!”
