3 Fundamental Tips for a Well Designed Survey
Using SurveyTool, businesses can create and launch surveys that are easy-to-use and instantly start collecting results. To help users save on time and money, SurveyTool offers the ability to narrow down respondents by using survey samples. The benefits of using a survey sample is that it saves on time and money by utilizing a pool of respondents that is smaller and efficient, leading to less data to wade through while maintaining a high rate of accuracy.
What is a Survey Sample?
A survey sample is a sample selected from the target market population. Sampling is a cost effective way to measure the preferences and characteristics of the targeted audience by keeping the respondent group small and highly relevant.
Picking a targeted sample allows businesses and researchers to ask a small subset of the total market for their opinions, eliminating the need to ask each and every consumer.
The process saves the user time and money while accurately representing the characteristics of the entire target market.
How Accurate are Survey Samples?
If the survey population's size - the number of people in the target demographic - is 10,000 then only a survey sample of 370 people is needed to have a 95% confidence level and 5% margin of error in the survey results.
Even with a small response group, businesses can use online survey software samples to accurately measure results from a larger demographic which saves the business or researcher who created the survey time and money.
How to Choose the Survey Sample
When selecting a targeted sample it is necessary to first decide what kind of information is desired as a result of the survey. If an online product company is wanting to know which item category is making them the most money, then the target audience is consumers and therefore the survey sample should be chosen from among people categorized as frequent online shoppers.
For example, consumers spent $176 billion online during 2010. The online product company could use a survey sample to get information from this massive group without having to survey thousands of people.
Once they receive responses to their survey from the sample, they can apply the data and perhaps find out which online department should be expanded to capitalize on its popularity.
