Online Surveys & Polls for Business – Samples and Tips

One of the most effective, cost-efficient ways to communicate with customers, employees and more is through online surveys. The beauty of online surveys is that you can quickly create, distribute and get feedback on your survey. And because the responses are collected in real time, the data is automatically recorded, sorted and analyzed to quickly provide meaningful results.

Feedback = Business Improvement

There are three main reasons why CorpNote members send online surveys:

  1. Customer feedback — Companies that offer a product or service will send an online survey to their clients either once a year as a regular touch-point, or after a business transaction.
  2. Employee communications — Whether a company wants to thoroughly evaluate their staff's job satisfaction, or if they simply want to ask them what performer to hire for a holiday party, online surveys make it easy to distribute a questionnaire and tabulate the results.
  3. Communicating with the general public — CorpNote's online surveys provide an easy way to customize, publish and share surveys without the need for a webmaster or any internet experience.

Customer Feedback

It is much easier to maintain a great reputation than to have to rebuild one. Customer feedback surveys provide immediate data about the quality of your company's product or service. Whether you want to send a single survey to all your clients at the end of each year, or if you want to proactively survey your customers after a sale, CorpNote provides you with the tools to create and automate survey templates, so a strong follow-up is always only a few clicks away! Some of the types of questions that you can ask in a customer survey are...

  • Please rate your recent experience with us.
  • Were your inquiries/requests answered promptly?
  • Where did you hear about our company?
  • Would you recommend us to others?
  • Are there products/services you'd like to see us offer in the future?

Employee Communications

Does your company communicate with employees via an online newsletter, internal website, email or social media? CorpNote Online Surveys can be seamlessly shared via your existing communication channels, or you can easily send a survey using CorpNote's eCards.

Here are some examples of how you can improve employee communications using online surveys...

  • Pre-event Questionnaire — With an online survey you can easily get topic suggestions for upcoming seminars, or menu preferences for an upcoming event.
  • After-event follow-up — Great for meetings and seminars, and for any time that you want to evaluate the effectiveness and satisfaction of your company's events.
  • Staff/company Recommendations — Online surveys are a terrific way to poll your employees to find out their interest and ideas on a wide range of topics. This can range from their feedback on company programs like sports or company social events, to ideas for better employee recognition or improving your business' products/services.

Tips for Creating Effective Online Surveys

Online surveys are easy to create with CorpNote and are perfect for customer satisfaction surveys.

Here are some of our tried-and-true recommendations for creating your own highly-effective online surveys:

  • Focus and brevity — Develop targeted survey questions and be brief. Your CorpNote survey can have up to 20 questions; but we see the greatest response rates in surveys that can be completed in under 3 minutes.
  • Customize questions to fit your audience — Too often, people try to create a single one-size-fits-all survey. Since there's no cost per survey or per recipient, you can improve the quality of your survey data by tailoring different versions of your survey to different people. For instance, customer surveys may be divided between new customers that recently did business with you, and long-time customers that you haven't heard from in a while.
  • Selectivity and exclusivity — Send your survey to a few, carefully selected groups of people and let them know they have been uniquely selected for the survey. What you learn from your initial responses might help you refine your survey for when you send it to your next selected group.
  • Reward people for their time — Thank your customers for their time and insight! Consider having an incentive to encourage people to complete your survey. It could be a coupon code good for 15% off their next purchase, or you can tell them they'll be entered in a drawing for a gift for taking the survey in the text of your survey eCard.
