SimplyCast Highlight: Survey
Surveys are a great tool to gather feedback, assess success, and discover your contacts' interests. Unfortunately, often survey cards and forms are left where they sit and canvassing isn't always the best option.
That's where SimplyCast's Survey tool comes in. This application provides the tools you need to build the survey you want and get it into the hands of the people who need to see it.
Through the application, you can quickly and easily design every facet of a survey, from question types to branding, with the drag-and-drop editor. You can input dropdown menus, checkboxes, radio matrices, contact information, captcha, and more. If you're seeking feedback on specific subjects or topics, create targeted questions through rating matrices, range selections, or checkboxes. If your goal is to receive more open-ended responses, insert text boxes to allow for long, more detailed answers. To guarantee you receive the data you are seeking, you can label critical questions as "required" to ensure the fields are entered before the survey can be submitted.
After completing your questions, design the survey to fit your branding by adding images, changing background, border, text colors, and fonts. Add in social media buttons for Facebook and LinkedIn or provide a sharing button to let your followers help disperse the information.
Interested in taking information from only from a handful of people? Allow only a limited number of form submissions by setting entry caps, blocking multiple entries, and having the form become inaccessible after a certain time and date. If you're interested in organizing in-person meetings or booking appointments for follow-ups, add in a date and time selector so you know when the person will be available.
Surveys are not just a great way to gather feedback, however – you can insert additional fields to gather new information such as names, phone numbers, email, and addresses to add to your contact database. If you've already built a strong repertoire of stakeholders, you can integrate your database and use merge tags to add a personalized tone to catch the eye.
Finally, when the time comes to send it out, skip the printing press and get it into the hands of the people you want to reach. Send your survey out in your next newsletter, email blast, have your contacts respond via text for quick engagement, or circulate the survey on social media.
Watch in real time as a report is generated with the answers in both text and visual data, such as pie charts, depending on the question. Every report generated is exportable with the data itself able to be sorted by date or metadata.
So, why not trade the clipboard and canvassing for an efficient solution that gets the questions you want to be answered in front of your audience?
