Lessons from an online survey taker

Robert Bain of Research recently decided to spend a month taking online surveys. Through is month adventure, he faced many challenges, from being kicked out of surveys and failing to qualify for many. In the end, the experiment received 150 email invitations, clicked through to 99 surveys, started 73, got kicked out of 39, completed 30, crashed out of three and gave up on one.

What were some of the take aways he gathered from 73 surveys in 31 days?
-Note the design of your surveys, focusing specifically on creativity and quality
-Be honest with your survey taker. If they do not qualify, let them know why.
-Surveys don’t provide enough answers. Give your respondents enough room to tell the truth in the survey.
