There are a variety of options for inviting respondents to take your survey. Each survey has a unique link identifying it's location at SurveyConsole. This link can be added to an email, placed on a website, posted on social networking sites, printed on postcard invitations, etc. A combination of any of the above methods may also be used to invite survey participants. All of the data is still collected under one single survey.
Some ways to invite respondents are as follows:
- Survey Link: Each survey has a unique URL (link) which you can post on multiple websites / pages. Link to the survey from your web site / page / blog. By clicking the link, the respondent is presented with a survey that is hosted by our system, yet it contains your company logo and appears as if it were another one of your web pages.
- Email: Sending out survey via email using SurveyConsole email management system or download Email Batches for distribution using external Email Clients. Refer to links below for more information on Email / Export Batch feature.
