Brands spend money to build apps, acquiring consumers and developing relationships. And most brands will seek to understand customer satisfaction some point. However, the fact that mobile offers a good opportunity for consumer feedback beyond the app is often overlooked. For businesses, the push notification survey is the perfect platform to collect data, analyse it, and react to the consumer’s feedback in real-time.
Here are a few tips on how to deliver a successful mobile survey campaign:
- Mobile native experience
In mobile, it’s not just about asking the right question but also about the format and the context. The experience needs to be simple, quick and visual to mirror how the consumers utilise their phone on a daily basis. It needs to capitalise on the moment and be effortless, as we are less incline to complete a 10-minute survey these days.
- Ask a question: How was your experience in-store today?
- Use visual(s): Have you tried this product before?
- Or simply go for multiple-choice question(s): What does matter to you the most: a) product, b) experience, c) price…
- Triggered, timely and personal
You also need to make sure your survey question is targeted to what you want to know from your consumers. With mobile you can pin point your audience or create a panel based on very specific criteria – including active and passive data. So for example, you could target a user in real-time based on his location giving a brand the opportunity to gather feedback on in-store or event experience.
And these messages can also be triggered based on specific scenarios so you don’t have to cover all aspects of your business in one questionnaire, but can drip feed questions or tailor them based on customers’ answers.
The beauty of it all, is that it gives the business the opportunity to address the customer’s feedback at a very short notice e.g. calling an unsatisfied customer if necessary, giving them an offer on his next purchase.
Because of all the above factors, and the fact that push messages are often read immediately, the engagement rate with mobile surveys are very high (over 20% depending on industry sectors). And as mobile is a relatively low cost channel, it delivers great ROI too. Does that mean mobile survey could revolutionise the market research industry?
