Some tips from Typeform
Below are some tips from the Official Typeform guide you may find useful:
- First impressions count! Create a nice Welcome Screen to greet your respondents. You can use call-to-action words and add your logo or a welcome video.
- Start with the most important questions and, if possible, don’t make the others required. You may lose your respondents at the very beginning if you start with long (and boring) socio-demographic questions.
- Keep your typeform as short as possible! People’s time is limited, so make sure they don’t quit your survey because it's too long.
- Create a nice ending, inviting respondents to share on social media. Also, give a link to your typeform’s Report. Sharing the results will improve participation in future surveys.
- Always remember the 3S rule: Simple, Specific, Short! Use simple, common words to fit all audiences. Be specific to avoid misunderstandings. And keep your sentences short to make them easier to read.
