How To Make People Complete Your Online Survey

  • 14/06/2012

I was once offered a chance to win 50 Euros to filling out a survey which I ended up not filling and did not win the money of course. Most of us would agree that filling out a survey can seem like a very tidious task. Despite the fact that I did not win the price money for filling out that survey, offering money or some kind of incentive is actually a very good idea. But sometimes it has to be combined with some other best practices for it to work even marketing survey research

I made a little research in other to figure out how one can make people fill out a surveys even when they don’t really feel like spending too much time doing so and these are what I came up with:


  • Use multiple pages: This might sound like the most trivial thing to do but it really works. if you load up your entire survey question on one page, it looks scary and tedious to most respondents. Breaking your survey questions down into multiple pages can sometimes give the respondent the illusion that he or she doesn’t need to spend too much time filling it out.
  • Use page counters: the use of page counters or progress bars enables the respondent keep track of his or her progress. It can sometimes be comforting for a respondent to be aware of how many pages he or she has left.
  • Use a friendly and simple layout: a friendly and simple layout is easy on the eye. Of course the layout could show features of your company’s house style and colors, but keep it simple.
  •  Use email reminders: If you have the email address of your target group, you can send them a reminder to fill out your survey if they have not already done so.
  • Offer an incentive: like I already mentioned, offering money or some kind of a prize can get a respondent to try as much as possible to complete a survey.

These techniques are not meant for all kinds of respondent. It is for you to understand the kind of people you want to fill out your survey and see which of these tips would work best for you. If you have any other suggestion that might work or worked for you, please add it as a comment on this page. Thank you and happy online surveying!

Im not trying to spam I am just given you guys a alternative site just in case this one doesn't work for you.


What do you mean providing more data? How does degcarmphios play a role in the amount of surveys you get? I've signed up for another survey site a year ago or so, and made $20, but not a sufficient income. I am sure this site has worked for some people in earning a lot of points as I can see in your video. I just want to know if there are tips to get as many points as you do because some people don't get a lot of surveys like you have.

On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
