How to get responses to your online survey in less than five-minutes

How long are your patient/carer surveys? Are you getting low response rates? Are you using SurveyMonkey? Have you thought about fielding a micro survey?

A micro survey is a short form of a questionnaire with less than 5 questions taking the respondent a minute or two to answer.

Although the number of questions and the length of a micro survey vary, the common theme is that the survey is extremely short. Short to construct and short to complete for the survey taker.

You can then carry out a more in depth follow-up survey of respondents who have answered in a particular way.

Other benefits of a micro survey include quick turnaround times providing actionable feedback in a timely fashion.

In summary the advantages of a micro survey are:

  • Higher response rate
  • Higher engagement
  • Quicker turnaround time
  • More questions answered.
