Feedback gives you insights into your business you would not otherwise have and highlights what actions you need to take to make sure your business stays on track. Surveys are great ways to get feedback from your customers in fact, from anyone who is a stakeholder in your business. In this article, we take a look at the different types of market research survey and how you can use them for your business.

Brand Awareness

A brand awareness survey creates a relative position for your brand among your competitors. It can determine:

  1. How many of your target audience have heard of your brand
  2. Where people have heard about your brand
  3. The perception people have of your brand
  4. How many of your target audience intend to purchase from you (versus from your competitors)
  5. How many of your target audience have used or engaged with your brand, thus helping you to gauge market share

Customer Satisfaction Levels

There are various ways to measure customer satisfaction levels. One of these is the Net Promoter Score (NPS), which is an index that measures the willingness of customers to recommend a company’s products or services to others, and can be correlated with revenue growth.

Before conducting a customer satisfaction survey make sure you take account of the following:

  1. Target Audience. Ensure you are surveying the right segment of your audience e.g. people who have bought a certain product or live in a certain area.
  2. Timing. Offer the survey as soon after the purchase as possible. This will help to increase your response rate and will give more accurate results.
  3. Perceived Benefit. Assure respondents that their feedback is relevant and that it will be acted on and make sure you act on it!

Customer Attitudes and Expectations

This type of survey determines what your customers’ expectations are about an experience with your product or service, and is useful for helping you to create a more impactful customer satisfaction survey, as well as giving you a heads up about any changes you need to make your brand.

Attitude and expectation surveys will also give you an insight, among other things, into your website’s performance and customer service levels.

An attitude and expectation survey can also be used to track employee attitudes and can help you to keep your best employees.

And finally!

Be careful not to survey your customers (staff and other stakeholders) too frequently, as survey fatigue can set in, the response rate will decrease and otherwise good relationships can suffer.
