Test your survey with a smaller group of people before sending it out to your entire participant list. By doing so, you’ll be able to identify any issues that may exist with your survey or your contact list and fix them before your survey goes out. Doing a pilot test will also give you a general idea of what you can expect to see as an overall response rate from the full list.

Surveys are a powerful and cost-effective way to gather information, identify and diagnose problems, and uncover new and emerging opportunities. However, one of the biggest challenges that many companies face in conducting surveys is getting the right mix of people to take their surveys and also getting a high enough response rate to ensure that their survey results are accurate.

Survey response rates can vary widely depending on whether you are conducting your survey via phone, email, a paper survey, etc., what industry you’re in, and whether your survey is going to customers or employees. Although there is no single way to improve your response rates, the following are some easy steps, identified by Allegiance, Inc., a feedback management company, that you can take that, when combined, will help you improve your survey response rates.
