San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 18, 2010
More than 450 businesses and organizations tuned-in to learn tips and tricks for building and distributing surveys with the aim of generating media interest and buzz for a company, topic or product. The webinar, Top Tips to Boost Buzz with Survey Findings, hosted Wednesday by Zoomerang, a leading online survey and polling tool, and PRWeb, the leader in online news distribution, is now available on-demand.
Surveys are often used within a company or organization to gauge customer and/or employee satisfaction. However, today’s online survey is far more flexible than the earlier pen and paper predecessor, enabling results to be gathered and delivered to media in near real-time.
Businesses or organizations that integrate social media as a regular practice can use these tools to generate buzz, as well complement other marketing and communications efforts, including as search engine optimization (SEO).
Zoomerang’s offered the following best practices for creating a survey:
- Clearly define the purpose of the survey
- Keep the survey short and focused
- Use closed-ended questions whenever possible
- Keep rating scale questions consistent
- Pre-test, pre-test, pre-test!
When drafting a release PRWeb recommends the following:
- Create a compelling headline
- Use visual aids
- Provide a snapshot of the research
- Hyperlink to relevant materials
- Use search friendly language
