Polls and Surveys
We believe polls and surveys are a great way to gather
information about your users. Users are more likely to
divulge information when your questions are disguised
as a survey or poll. Plus the answers they provide tend to be more
frank and honest using a survey or poll than when you
interact with your users directly.
We have done
many different types of polls and surveys ranging from
simple single-question polls to branched, multi-question
surveys that include multiple-choice, single-choice, and freeform answers.
Often times polls and surveys are added to Web sites but we have also
created them for kiosk and tradeshow applications.
Single-question polls are a great way to get quick feedback
from your users. So much so that we created a huge site
that allows our clients to add simple single-question polls to their own
sites. Sign up for a free pollcard to test drive the system.
While single-question polls can capture useful data, clearly
there are instances where you need more data than you can
get from posing a single question. We have done large-scale
surveys for kiosks, tradeshows and Web sites that span multiple
pages. Some were branched, meaning that follow-up questions
depended on how you answered a prior question. For the tradeshow
surveys we created, we devised a way to generate great-looking
reports by simply importing the results into an Excel spreadsheet
after the show was over.
