How to Make a Survey That Works for You?
Whether you’re doing research for your business, marketing, or school a good survey can go a long way. Follow these steps to make a survey that will get you more and better responses.
Set a Goal & Define an Audience
Before building your survey make sure your objective is crystal clear. What do you want to discover or learn more about? Who are the best people to give you the answers you need?
Defining a goal and sample group in advance will help you design a survey that’s perfect for your audience. And if it’s perfect for them it’s perfect for you because they’ll answer it.
Build a Survey From Scratch or Use a Template
Create a survey using our super-friendly survey creation form. Experiment with different question types. Use open-ended and closed-ended questions. And add visuals to illustrate what you’re asking.
Try to keep it down to 10 questions, 15 max. Otherwise, your respondents may drop off before reaching the end.
If you want to save time, you could also choose one of our pre-designed survey templates and change it to suit your goals and audience.
Add Smart Logic to Offer a Personalized Experience
Once you have a few questions down you can do two little things that’ll make a big difference:
- Add skip logic to make sure you’re taking your respondents down a question path that’s relevant to them. Our survey maker let’s you easily define which question they’ll see next based on their answer to the previous one.
- Use answer piping for an extra personal touch. With answer piping you can use your respondent’s answer to one question in another question. For example, if one question is “what’s your name?” the next question can contain the name they filled in.
Both features are quick and easy to apply and will give your survey a conversational feel that will keep your respondents engaged for longer.
Customize the Look & Feel of Your Survey
What and how you ask is important, but it’s not everything. The way your survey looks will also influence people’s decision to participate as well as the quality of the answers they give.
- Align your survey design with your brand to inspire trust and familiarity.
- Choose fonts, font sizes, and color themes that encourage focus.
- Add visuals that will keep your respondents engaged and entertained.
Share Your Survey With Your Audience
Once your survey is ready you just need to publish it and wait for the results to roll in. An Opinion Stage survey can be shared practically anywhere. Embed it on your site, share it over social media, or send it in an email or messaging app.
Simply ask yourself where and when your sample group would want to receive your survey. It’s important to think about their convenience here because if you reach them in the right place and time they’ll be more likely to cooperate.
Go Where the Data Takes You
To keep track of responses, go to the results page on your survey dashboard. As the answers accumulate you’ll receive data charts and presentations that will help you analyze and visualize answer trends.
You’ll also get performance reports that will help you improve your survey in real-time if needed.

Online Survey – Popular Use Cases
In one sentence – use an online survey when you want to gather high-quality reliable data from a lot of people quickly, efficiently, and delightfully. In more detail:
Collect Useful Feedback
People are three times more likely to give you feedback via an online survey than over the phone.
According to research, more and more customers and clients are choosing written communication when it comes to asking for support and giving feedback.
With a well-built survey and the right targeting, you can reach a whopping 85% response rate, which means tons of valuable actionable feedback from people who care.
Conduct Indepth Research
Whether you’re researching for school, marketing, or product development an online survey can come in handy because:
- It’s faster, especially if you want to reach a lot of people. You can build it quickly, get thousands of responses in a few hours, and process them automatically.
- It’s more accurate because respondents feel it’s private, which makes it easier for them to be honest.
- It costs less – the whole process from creation to analysis requires less work, less time, and less manpower, which means less money too.
- Analysis is easier when the data is autimatically processed and visually organized for you automatically.
- It’s easy to combine qualitative and quntative research by strategically including both open and closed-ended questions.
Evaluate Performance Effectively & Tactfully
There comes a time when you need to evaluate yourself, your employees, your business, or an event. And when that time comes frank constructive answers are crucial.
Online surveys make it easy for people to be honest, clear, and unbiased – a must when you’re looking for a real evaluation.
Whether you wish to measure change over time or broad trends, online surveys are built to facilitate comparison. You can easily see and show growth, identify issues, and more.
Also, since evaluations can be sensitive (especially if you’re evaluating people’s performance) you can easily structure an online evaluation in a way that encourages positive and practical feedback.
Uncover the Why
While analytics tools follow behavior, an onsite survey extracts insights. It’s an unobtrusive way to communicate directly with your audience and learn from them.
Use a friendly survey to ask your users how they heard of you, why they downgraded their plan, what features they need, and where they would like you to improve.
Added value: while you’re collecting these insights you’re also engaging them with your brand and potentially building a valuable relationship.
Show Your Audience That You Care
A survey is a form of listening. It shows your audience that you’re interested in them, that you care.
Think of it this way, your survey is not only an opportunity to learn from your audience it’s also an opportunity for them to teach you.
Many brands take this one step further by sharing survey results and takeaways with their respondents to highlight the importance of their input.
