Increase Activity in Your Groups & Communities

Tips & Best Practices for Facebook Surveys
Are you ready to take your Facebook surveys to the next level? Here are some tips that will help you get there with ease.
Set a Clear Goal
Before you start, it is important that you understand what information you are trying to collect and how it can lead to actions. Once you know what you want, you can define exactly who you want it from. In other words, define your target audience.
Keep It Short
Respect your audience’s time. To do so, make sure you only ask the questions you really need feedback on. Because the risk is that the more questions you ask, the fewer responses you will get.
Adding images to your questions and answer options can boost engagement and add context to the questions. It’s a good way to increase the number of survey responses you get.
Give extra thought to your cover image, since it will influence the number of people who click on your survey in the first place.
Make It Clear
Keep the survey questions and answer options as short and clear as possible. In other words, everything should be super easy to understand.
In closed-ended questions, verify that the answers cover all the options and that they don’t overlap.
