Using Surveys to Generate Leads in 3-Steps

Using surveys to generate leads

One of the best ways that you can generate leads is to have people fill out surveys. This gives you a good idea of what they are looking for, what their age group is, and so on. But there are a few things that should be considered when you are composing surveys.

1. Keep it short

You don’t want to ask too much information of the clients because it may scare them off instead of making them interested in your company or product.

2. Respect their privacy

Assure them that the information that you collect is going to be for your eyes only, and that it won’t be sold to another company. This is something that is important to people and when you make this promise, it shows that you
respect them and their wishes.

3. Offer them a thank you

Let them know that you appreciate the time that they took to do the survey and offer them a thank you present. It doesn’t have to be elaborate or expensive, but people like to know that they are appreciated.

When a survey is done right, and in the right manner, it can be a very useful marketing tool. The thing to remember is that in order to make them work, people have to be willing to fill them out.

Respect their time, respect their privacy, and respect their effort, and you will find that people will give you answers that will be useful and helpful to you and your company.

An easy way to conduct surveys is to do it online. Here is a good and free resource to quickly create online surveys:
