Data collection tips from our experts
“Ensure you’re asking the right questions in both content and question type. Example: Use radio buttons when possible so respondents can see all their choices versus typing or selecting from a drop-down menu. More straightforward forms = higher completion rates and faster time to completion.” —Paul Lazatin, Head of Partnerships
“Thoroughly test your integrations to make sure you catch and resolve any potential errors before going live with your form.” —Katy Lash, Implementation Manager
“Use clear and concise language. People are likely to scan the form fields and instructions rather than read word for word.” —Cedric Savarese, Founder & CEO
We hope these data collection tips are helpful to you! If you’ve joined the giveaway, good luck—we’ll be in touch with our winners throughout the month of December 2020. Don’t forget: For every trial signup during the month of December 2020, we’re giving $5 back to charity! Learn more and sign up at the link below.
