TIME-STAMPED SHOW NOTES:

  • [00:27] Today’s Topic: The Best Way to Survey Your Audience
  • [00:35] There are two types of data: quantitative and qualitative.
  • [00:45] Google Analytics tracks quantitative.
  • [00:56] Over 95% of your traffic (and maybe more) don’t convert. Why?
  • [01:10] The Google numbers won’t tell you. You have to talk to your customers through phone, email, and text.
  • [01:20] Surveying is qualitative data. When combined with quantitative, you will be able to greatly improve your business.
  • [01:44] Eric was recently reading the blog “Wild Audience”. The site surveyed him.
  • [02:00] The questions he answered were a way to qualify visitors and segment them into the right campaigns.
  • [02:40] Survey Slam was recommended by “Wild Audience”. It’s a WordPress plugin that costs $97 for the developer license.
  • [03:10] You leave money on the table by not putting people into the right classification.
  • [03:18] Don’t ask too many questions at once and make sure they aren’t biased.
  • [03:40] Make sure your questions are open-ended, so you don’t accidentally bias the survey.
  • [04:22] You can use a word cloud to combine your qualitative feedback.
  • [04:29] From there, you can look at what the commonalities are and make decisions based on the insights you gain.
  • [04:49] When people are done with the survey, make sure to show them a Thank You page that will drive a conversion.
  • [05:21] That’s all for today!
