Visuals are everything. With images, you can better engage your audience while expressing your brand identity. We have a highly-skilled, amazingly talented design team *humble brag* that make your Enalyzer surveys, quizzes and forms look professional and eye-catching. But we know that not everyone has access to a professional photographer or graphic designer. This is unfair. Everyone should be able to create stunning surveys. So, we fixed it.

We’ve teamed up with leading image provider, Unsplash, to give you access to over 550,000 high-resolution images right inside your Enalyzer account – for free. Did you get that? Adding a stunning background image to your survey is as easy as adding a question.

To give you complete control, we have also added the possibility to stretch the images, so they take up the entire screen regardless of the device. Remember, Enalyzer is 100% responsive, which means it adapts to all screen sizes and now so do your images! You can also fix images positions, so even if the respondent has to scroll through a page of questions, your images will be fixed. Finally, you can select the alignment of images as well as tile them or not.

About Unsplash
Unsplash provides a huge library of free, do-whatever-you-want high-resolution photos. Thousands are added every day by a community of over 90,000 photographers and creators. Unsplash is trusted by tons of businesses, probably some of your favorite ones, such as Squarespace, Trello, Slack and Medium.

Create engaging online order forms with Enalyzer

Online order forms should engage people. They should attempt to imitate an offline experience as much as possible and they are an integral part of a satisfactory customer experience. When customers browse your online store and are ready to purchase your goods or services, they should be met with hospitality and be attracted by your products/services, just as they would in a face-to-face interaction.

Calculate prices

If you’re selling more than one product or service then you need a form that can dynamically add up prices as the customer places their order. Enalyzer’s Calculator feature allows you to easily set these calculations up and merge the total score wherever you want. So, when your customer is done placing their order, you can direct them to an end page showing the total amount to be paid.

Brand everything about your form

Your brand should be part of your online order form. Use Enalyzer design features to add background images, change the font, and add images, videos, and even GIFs. If you’re looking for stock images, we’re glad to tell you that we’ve partnered up with Unsplash to bring over half a million high-res photos to use free of cost as your background image.

With Enalyzer, you can use other question types to further engage customers and elevate their experience. For example, display your products with image choice questions. If you allow users to upload their own designs, for example, printing logos on different merchandise, you can use an image upload question that allows them to upload the design they want to be printed.

Take customers down their own paths

Show custom messages depending on customers’ choices. Maybe an item is sold out, instead of removing it from your form, you can create a condition and show them a page informing them of when the item will be available again or ask for their email so you can inform them of its availability. Another option would be to redirect them to a page recommending other items they might be interested in based on their current basket. There are plenty of options!

Get notified when someone places an order

When a customer places an order, you need to be notified immediately. With Enalyzer, you can tag incoming responses and be notified when they come in. How? Let’s take the Business Card order form as an example, you can create a category for every package you provide and enable notifications. When someone places an order, you will be notified by email and are able to see the entire order.

Send invoices instantly

Just as in physical stores, when customers are ready to pay, they want to do it as fast as possible. Therefore after placing an order, they need an invoice immediately – like super fast!

Don’t freak out, Enalyzer, Zapier and 1000+ apps, aka the holy trinity of productivity, has the solution. By connecting your Enalyzer account to another app via Zapier, your customers will receive an invoice instantly after clicking submit my order.

How does it work? With more than 1000 apps, the possibilities are endless but we have a couple of examples.

Webshop apps.

We know what you’re thinking if I have a webshop, why do I need an online order form? Plenty of reasons! For example, in case you don’t accept online payments or you need to contact your customers before the payment, a webshop checkout process might not be convenient. Instead, they can fill out your order form, you can assess their order and continue to the payment process later. With Zapier, you can connect your webshop, e.g. Shopify, to your Enalyzer account, so when customers place an order via your Enalyzer form, Zapier creates an order in Shopify.

 

Invoice apps.

Maybe you have an independent website and use invoice platforms to manage all your invoices. No problem, we can handle that too. If you’re using an invoice app, such as Xero, Invoice Ninja or Wave you can connect them to Enalyzer and achieve the same result. A customer places an order via your Enalyzer form, Zapier creates an invoice in your app – voila!

 

Even simpler.

Have you heard of Webmerge? They automatically generate PDF and Word DOCX documents merged with data from other web services. Create a simple WebMerge template, sync it up with your Enalyzer account via Zapier. And instant invoices!

Need inspiration?

Online order forms are great. Having a tool that can make your online form feel like an online shop is better. To give you a sense of what you can accomplish, we recommend you have a look at Enalyzer’s order form templates.

Make an impact with images and videos in your surveys and reports

When most people hear “survey”, they imagine a page or series of pages filled with rating scale questions asking them…

When most people hear “survey”, they imagine a page or series of pages filled with rating scale questions asking them if they strongly agree or disagree. And we can’t blame them. Despite the available technology, most surveys are imitations of the good-old paper questionnaire. Now, don’t get us wrong, for many purposes this format works but don’t underestimate the power of videos and images. Multimedia engages an audience and can contribute to a coherent brand that is more likely to be remembered.

Enalyzer offers many ways to add videos and images to your surveys.

Clickable images

To engage respondents with the subject of your survey, you can present questions in a more colorful and interactive way. With Enalyzer, you can add image choice questions which allow you to add images as response options serving as a great alternative to multiple choice questions.

Interactive rating scales

Instead of a basic scale from 1-7, with Enalyzer, you can have a rating scale that features icons such as stars, smileys, and hearts. If you’re asking respondents to rate movies or a restaurant, they might be more inclined and engaged if they can provide a 5-star rating than just clicking on “I really liked it”.

Videos for better feedback

Questions can benefit from a visual component, actually, adding multimedia to your online surveys can improve your response rate, represent your brand, engage your audience, and more! If you think images can convey complex messages, the power of videos will blow your mind. For example, you can add training videos and test your respondents based on those or you can showcase your branding videos and receive feedback from test groups. With Enalyzer, you can add videos and images as independent elements and match them with one question or a series of questions.


Did you know?

One of the many benefits of adding videos to your survey is that it allows participants to stop and rewind so they can give feedback as they go.

… and for better reports

Make your reports more attractive with images and videos. Adding your company’s logo or an introductory picture can take your report from simple to professional in seconds. You can also make them more interactive with videos, for example, if you added a video showing your website when surveying respondents, you can add the same video to your report, so report readers can understand the context of the feedback they’re about to read.

Bonus info: think first impressions

Before respondents read an introduction to your survey or any of your questions, they will see your invitation and survey design. These are just as important as everything else. With Enalyzer, you can create nice, clean and uncluttered survey invitations and reminders. You can also make your surveys look professional and stand out with background images, logos, colors, and fonts. With the design possibilities, you can create professional looking surveys with Enalyzer that make a lasting impression. These will engage your audience from the start, ensuring a higher probability of your respondents completing your survey. Enalyzer is 100% responsive, which means it adapts to any and all screen sizes, this includes your logo and any multimedia you’ve added to your survey.

Stay alert with immediate notifications on incoming responses to your survey

With Enalyzer’s categories and notifications, you can tag responses and receive email notifications when incoming responses match your criteria. This way, you can stay on top of incoming responses and react to them immediately. Does this sound useful but abstract? Well, it doesn’t have to be. To help you make better decisions, we’ve compiled 3 useful examples that you can use as inspiration.

Customer satisfaction score (CSAT)

CSAT is a broad term that encompasses various types of methods and survey questions to assess the satisfaction level customers have of your product/service or interaction with your company. Depending on your goals and objectives, your customer satisfaction survey can range from a single question, a set of questions, or a long survey. Nevertheless, the following question, or a similar one, should always be included:

“How would you describe your overall satisfaction with this product?”

Once you’ve done that, depending on your chosen scale, you can categorize your respondents into supporters, neutrals, and critics. You can activate notifications for the supporter and critic categories and be alerted on the incoming responses that match this criteria. In other words, from then on, you’ll get email notifications whenever a customer is satisfied or dissatisfied with your service/product and contact them instantly.

 

 

Expense reimbursement

When employees spend their own hard earned cash on business-related expenses, they have to be reimbursed. Didn’t you know that? Awkward… Anyway, this can include business travels, lunches and/or transport. Many companies have an Excel template that employees have to use every time they need to be reimbursed, however, with Enalyzer you can make this easier for everyone involved. As the HR responsible, set up a reimbursement survey where you ask about the type of expense, employee details and an expense amount. Once you’ve done this, set up a category based on the expense type to keep a tidy overview. Enable email notifications and you’ll know when someone needs to be reimbursed. No more Excel. You’re welcome.

Répondez s’il vous plaît

You are planning an event, for example, your birthday and you’d like to know who is coming and if they’re bringing +1s, so you naturally set up a quick survey to handle the RSVPs. Divide your guests into three categories, those that are attending, those bringing +1s and those who are not attending. Once you’ve done that, you can enable email notifications on all or some of the categories and keep up with your growing guest list!

Optimize your customer journey touchpoints

Marketing has one job and that is to reach consumers at the moments that most influence their decisions, these are…

Marketing has one job and that is to reach consumers at the moments that most influence their decisions, these are known as touchpoints. Touchpoints are anytime a potential or existing customer comes in contact with your brand, before, during or after their purchase. Touchpoints can include your website, retail stores, and social media. Every single touchpoint presents a valuable opportunity to engage with your customers, listen to what they have to say and use their feedback in order to optimize your customer journey.

The number of touchpoints can be endless but it doesn’t have to feel endless. Actually, by automatizing work processes with Enalyzer and Zapier, you can optimize your entire customer journey and deliver better customer experience. It will also make your job as a marketer easier – what’s not to like?

The perfect combo: Enalyzer + Zapier

You can’t improve your customer journey if you don’t have a holistic idea of how your customers are experiencing your brand at every touchpoint. With Enalyzer, you can collect and analyze customer feedback, helping you know better and make better decisions to improve customer experience.

Zapier is a web automation tool that connects Enalyzer with 1000+ apps. This means you can connect Enalyzer with the apps you use every day to connect with your customers. Use Enalyzer and Zapier to automize your customer touchpoints.

The consumer decision journey

The customer decision journey can help you identify your touchpoints. This is the first step towards ensuring your customers are satisfied every step of the way. To break it down and ensure you don’t miss anything, you can use the 5 stages of the model:

1. Initial consideration: the consumer considers an initial set of brands based on brand perceptions and exposure to recent touch points.

2. Active evaluation: the consumer participates in active evaluation where they add or subtract brands as they evaluate what they want.

3. Brand selection: involves the moment of purchase where the consumer selects a brand.

4. Post-purchase experience: the consumer evaluates their post-purchase experience, the consumer builds expectations base on experience to inform the next decision journey.

5. Loyalty loop: if the post-purchase experience is positive there is a high probability for the consumers to enter the loyalty loop. Once loyalty is achieved, the consumer enters the circular model and goes straight to stage 3 – the moment of purchase.


Did you know?

As with everything else, marketing has developed, advanced and become more complex. One of the strengths of the consumer decision journey is that it tailors to any geographic market that has different kinds of media, internet access, and wide product choice.

 

1. INITIAL CONSIDERATION

Grow your mailing lists

A great way to increase brand awareness is to deliver free content and build a relationship with potential customers. Newsletters and email marketing is a cost-effective way to do this, however, to deliver these you need a way to build and store a contact list. With Enalyzer, you can create a signup form for those interested in your content and have Zapier automatically add them to your email marketing app, such as MailChimp or Sendgrid.

Webinar signup

Webinars are an excellent way to get exposure, deliver quality free content and place your brand as the thought leader in your industry. Create a signup form with Enalyzer, and Zapier can automatically transfer new signups to a webinar app of your choice.

2. ACTIVE EVALUATION

Use feedback to create personalized content

By providing personalized and tailored content, you are letting potential customers know that you have the solutions to their problems and thus enter their evaluation stage. But how? Easy, the second someone enters your mailing list, Zapier sends them your Enalyzer survey. You can report on the feedback continuously and tailor your content to your audience’s interest and behavior.

Evaluate your sales meetings

Feedback from sales meetings will help you identify early warning signs and areas with potential for improvement. By addressing these, you can increase sales while keeping your prospects and leads happy. Use Enalyzer’s Sales Meeting Evaluation template and customize the design to fit your brand. With Zapier, you can automatically transfer the responses to a messaging app or email service in real time!

Optimize your ticketing system

Enalyzer makes it simple to create powerful feedback forms and Zapier can take those responses and send them directly to your ticketing system or email. Now you only have to worry about providing excellent customer support.

3. BRAND SELECTION

Keep your leads in one place

You can create a simple contact form with Enalyzer but instead of creating a database manually, Zapier can automatically store these leads in your preferred CRM system, such as Salesforce or even Google Sheets! Keeping track of potential customers has never been easier.

Make it simple to order online

Make sure that your customers can order online from anywhere by creating an order form with Enalyzer. After setting up this automation, Zapier will automatically create a new order on your webshop, e.g. Shopify or Shipstation.

4. POST-PURCHASE EXPERIENCE

Ask for their post-purchase feedback

It’s important that you understand your customer’s purchase experience in order to improve it and ensure loyalty in the future. Instead of figuring out the best time to send a survey, you can automize this process with Zapier. Create a feedback survey with Enalyzer and Zapier will send your survey after the customer purchase has gone through. To make it even better, you can add a delay step, so customer’s get the survey after they’ve received their purchase.

Track your Net Promoter Score®

The NPS metric is an effective metric to measure customer loyalty. Create an NPS survey using Enalyzer and connect your account with a messaging app via Zapier. This way, you can stay updated in real-time with your customers’ feedback and react immediately. However, don’t forget that with Enalyzer you can track your NPS over time, giving you a holistic idea of your customers’ loyalty development and progression.

5. LOYALTY LOOP

Tweet positive reviews

Once a customer has entered the loyalty loop, they will choose you again and again and even promote your brand to their network. Why not capitalize on that by spreading the good word to Twitter? Create a satisfaction survey with Enalyzer and Zapier will post the positive reviews to Twitter after they’ve been filtered through whatever criteria you define.

Use loyal customer to raise awareness

Social media is powerful but don’t forget about review sites. Create a satisfaction survey with Enalyzer, and Zapier will send your customers an invitation to leave a review on Trustpilot or Feefo. This is an easy way to increase your reviews and improve awareness of your product.

Automize your entire HR process and increase engagement with Enalyzer

What if we told you that with Enalyzer’s surveys and reports you can implement and track your employee experience in a…

What if we told you that with Enalyzer’s surveys and reports you can implement and track your employee experience in a cost-effective way? Before we get into it, let’s talk about why it’s important.

Companies with a strong base of loyal customers have one thing in common: highly engaged employees. If your employees are engaged, they will perform at every level, delivering a better product and customer service to your customers. In short: customer experience is a direct result of your employee experience. That’s it, we just thought you should know that our job here is done. Thank you and goodnight!

Just kidding. Employee engagement is becoming increasingly complex and there’s a need for new tools and processes in order to improve it. Unfortunately, there’s sometimes a discrepancy between employee’s wants and needs and HR objectives. Many HR leaders have not made employee experience a priority and even when they do, they do not have the tools available to execute it. To throw salt on the wound, the job isn’t getting any easier. Organizations are quickly switching to team-based structures, making the employee experience more important but also more complex for HR to monitor and improve.

Sounds complicated but it is far from impossible. Actually, by connecting Enalyzer with the multitude of tools available today, you can create an engaging environment for everyone.

Meet your new allies: Enalyzer and Zapier

Introducing the perfect combo: Enalyzer, Zapier, and 1000+ apps. Enalyzer is an excellent tool for collecting and analyzing data, helping you know better and make better decisions. Your employee experience should meet your employees’ wants and needs and you can’t do that without collecting and analyzing their feedback.

Zapier is a web automation tool that connects Enalyzer with 1000+ apps. This means you can connect Enalyzer with the apps you and your employees use every day and automize everything. Win meet win.

The employee lifecycle

The employee lifecycle (ELC) is one of the most used HR models and can be used to identify the different stages in an employee’s career to help guide management. The stages are attraction, recruitment, onboarding, development, retention, and separation.


Disclaimer

The ELC does not equal employee experience, but rather is part of it. So use it as a template to assess key touchpoints, but always remember that employee experience is the responsibility of leaders and it is always present.

Now that you are equipped with your new powerful allies, you can optimize and automate almost everything about the cycle, making your life and those of your employee’s easier. We’ve broken down the different stages of the ELC and given you some examples for you to get started right away. These are just a few examples of the millions of combinations you can make with Enalyzer, so if you’re app isn’t there, simply head over to Zapier to find more!

 

RECRUITMENT

Optimize the application and hiring process

When it comes to recruitment there are two groups you need to think about, employees in charge of the recruiting process and the new recruits. Did you know that on average, 250 resumes are sent for a corporate application? With Enalyzer, you can have applicants upload their resumes to your survey and have it all in one place. With Zapier, you can transfer their applications to a project management app and use your time selecting the right person for the job. For example, by transferring your applications from Enalyzer to Trello via Zapier, you can create an easy-to-use recruitment board as seen below.

Plan for future recruitment

We’ve all been there, there’s a great applicant but they’re not fit for the position and you make a mental note to write to them once a new position opens… but it never happens. Instead, collect all the emails addresses with Enalyzer and automatically add them to a mailing list using Zapier. Once a new position opens, let them know!

Start off on the right foot

Give them a warm welcome. Enalyzer is more than surveys, you can easily make an interactive welcome message that thanks to Zapier can be automatically sent to new hires once they’re added to your HR administration app.

ONBOARDING

Make introductions less awkward

Employee onboarding should always be a focus, the faster you get them up to speed the quicker they can be a productive member of your organization. Plus, if you don’t have a plan for onboarding, you risk losing new employees. Remember: effective onboarding saves money and builds loyalty.

It’s your first day and you get introduced to the entire office and somehow you’re not only supposed to remember their names and faces but also what they do… no pressure. Collect information from everyone at the office with a quick Enalyzer survey and transfer the information with Zapier to create a company directory that will massively reduce the awkward “what was her name again?” situations. With 76% of new hires feeling socialization is most important, this smart integration can easily increase engagement.

Check the pulse of new hires

How do you know if your onboarding program is working? By asking your employees. Create a pulse survey on the onboarding processes that you can send to new hires, do this at frequent intervals using this Zap, e.g. once every two weeks or once a month. Analyze your results and improve your program using Enalyzer’s reporting tool. Remember to also have face-to-face meetings with them based on the feedback they’ve provided.

 

DEVELOPMENT

Assess your team’s development

Showing your employees that you care and encourage their development can do wonders for their engagement and productivity since it boosts morale while gives them the tools to deliver. Enalyzer makes it easy to assess your team’s knowledge. By sending regular test surveys, you can analyze the data in Enalyzer and identify trends of areas that need improving. With Zapier, you can get an overview of their answers via email or a messaging app and keep a well-organized overview.

RETENTION

Constant feedback through pulse surveys

Losing an employee is bad for business. Research consistently finds that employee retention is the key to maintaining know-how and increasing morale, customer satisfaction, and sales. Constantly measure morale and ask for employee feedback, since they need to know that not because they’re not new anymore they’re not appreciated. Build a pulse survey and analyze the feedback using Enalyzer. Zapier makes it easy to send pulse surveys regularly. Remember that retention needs action, so always follow-up!

 

SEPARATION

Ask why

Employees leave and you have to accept that, but don’t let their knowledge leave with them. They may leave for a multitude of reasons, lack of advancement options, mismanagement, and general job dissatisfaction. Exit surveys give you the feedback you need to ensure current, valuable employees don’t leave. Use this Zap to send automatic exit surveys to those employees that are leaving the company. Use Enalyzer to analyze all the feedback you get and optimize the experience for current employees.

 

ATTRACTION

Attraction is known as the first stage of the ELC, which is silly because the model is a circular process and not a linear one… but I digress. The attraction stage refers to the power your brand has to, funny enough, attract people. It doesn’t matter how great your product or service is, if you can’t attract talent you will fail over time. The attraction stage takes place all the time since it refers to your employer brand, which is being perceived as a great workplace by everyone, current and former employees, stakeholders, your neighbor – you get the picture.

Implementing some, if not all, the aforementioned processes will contribute to your company’s employer brand. It will send an image to those inside and outside your company that you care for employees and their well-being. For example, if someone doesn’t get hired while you’re recruiting but gets a sense that her application was treated properly and professionally and even gets a email with open positions in the future, she will attach good feelings and opinions to your company.

The evolution of employee experience

Generally, HR departments focus on issues such as engagement, career development, rewards, etc. separately. These programs have their own set of tools for measuring, monitoring and assessing. However, these different factors are all part of a bigger concept – employee experience. Employee experience sees all aspects of the employee’s satisfaction, engagement and wellness as being interconnected. But how did we get here?

As with everything, the business world evolves and changes. Today, we are seeing a shift from organizational priorities towards a people-centric approach that puts emphasis on experiences. Decades ago, the relationship between employer and employee was straightforward. Employers needed employees and employees had bills to pay and certain skills to offer. Therefore, the focus was on functionality – the employee needed the adequate tools to carry out her work. Bringing up “out there” ideas such as flexible working arrangements would’ve gotten you laughed out the door. Don’t take our word for it, ask your grandparents.

Employers moved on to focus on productivity, however, once technology came into the picture and started optimizing productivity, employers now found themselves focusing on engagement. This shift made the relationship between employer and employee a two-way street, and employers found themselves emphasizing on what the organizations could do for employers.

Which brings up to today, where the buzz word is employee experience. Employees are unable to compartmentalize their experiences and therefore, their experience with your organization entails everything from culture to physical environments.

It’s all about first impressions: the importance of email copywriting

Looks don’t matter? Try again. First impressions are crucial at job interviews, first dates, meeting the in-laws and when inviting people to answer your survey.

Looks are not the only thing that matters, true, however, all the time you’ve spent crafting your survey invitation and reminder won’t matter if your invitation doesn’t grab people’s attention. Plus, you have crafted a visual identity for your brand that should shine through in everything you produce, including your survey invitations and reminders.

Wait… does that involve some sort of knowledge in HTML?

Nope, at least not with Enalyzer. We decided to make it as simple as possible for you, without compromising on your ability to make your brand shine. You can easily add your brand’s colors, fonts, and logos for a professional and enticing eye-catching design. This goes for survey invitations and reminders.

As with everything, your invitations and reminders are 100% responsive so your respondents can be wowed regardless of the device they are using. Last but not least, instead of creating new designs from scratch every time you send out a survey, you can reuse your messages.

Pro tip

Include your survey into a workspace and your teammates will have access to its invitation and reminder messages.

Schedule your entire survey

With surveys, timing is everything. Poorly scheduled surveys can lead to a low response rate and render your hard work irrelevant…

With surveys, timing is everything. Poorly scheduled surveys can lead to a low response rate and render your hard work irrelevant so it’s important that you create a timeline for when your survey opens/closes, as well as when to send survey invitations and reminders. Woah – sounds time-consuming, but what if we told you that all of this can be done automatically? With Enalyzer, you can schedule everything and the setup will only take 2 minutes.

Timing is everything

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves, before setting everything up, you need to create a timeline. It’s important that you consider the time when your target group checks their email AND have time to answer your survey. The longer your survey invitation sits in their inbox, the lower the chances are for an answer. Nowadays, thanks to smartphones, people are notified of their incoming emails all the time so you need to think of your respondents’ availability.

Remember to remind

We’ve praised reminders before because they are an effective way of boosting your response rate. Yes, even a well-scheduled survey needs reminders. Reminders are not meant to convince those who don’t want to participate in your survey, but rather to give those people who forgot the chance to participate. Therefore, timing also applies to your reminders.

It wouldn’t make sense to send your reminders the same day of the week as your survey invitations. Humans are creatures of habit so if many of your respondents were too busy to answer on a Wednesday, they will most likely be busy again the following Wednesday. Instead, consider sending your reminder another day of the week.

Pro tip

We recommend you send two reminders, one halfway through the survey process and one a couple of days before the survey ends.

Make your life easier

Now that you have a schedule for your surveys and reminders, you are finally ready to send out your survey. With Enalyzer, you can easily and quickly schedule…

In other words, once you’ve set all of this up, you just have to create your report, sit back and watch your results come in.

We’ve been working non-stop this entire year on new features and updates to make data collection easier and smarter for you. To go out with a bang, we’ve brought you a roundup of features we released in 2017 that you may have missed.

End pages

Thanking your respondents for completing your survey is not something that should be overlooked, that’s why we introduced end pages and these bad boys serve several purposes. Not only can you create customized messages to thank your respondents for taking the time to complete your survey but you can also redirect them to any URL, this could be your website, blog or another survey. You know what else? You can add social media icons to end pages and allow respondents to share your survey with their networks.

Zapier integrations

We were (and still are) really excited about this one! We partnered up with Zapier so you can connect your Enalyzer account with 1000+ apps and automize all your work processes.

Whether you just made a sale on Shopify or you’ve added a new contact to your Google Sheets database, Zapier integrations make follow-up surveys easier and faster. While data is being transferred, you can spend your time analyzing your data as it comes in – all with Enalyzer’s real-time updated reports.

Here are some Zap templates to get you quickly started:

Importing background information

Background variables are excellent for digging into data and working with these shouldn’t be complicated. We added a step to the invitation flow, so now you can easily import a .csv file with all the background information you have on your respondents such as department, seniority, and customer ID. If you’ve already added these to your survey, simply map the .csv fields to the existing survey variables and voilá – all your respondent’s data where it needs to be.

File and image upload

Pretty straightforward, with these question types, your respondents can upload files and images to your survey. Create a job application form, where applicants can upload their CVs or create a feedback form that allows people to upload screenshots and better explain their queries. You’ll get the perfect overview of the uploaded files in your reports and raw data files, as well as the possibility to download them straight to whatever device you’re working on.

Workspaces

Teamwork is slowly becoming the lay of the land, which means that your online tools need to follow suit and accommodate complex teamwork scenarios. With workspaces, you can share surveys and reports with your teammates across accounts. Simply create a workspace, invite your team and start sharing your surveys and reports so everyone in the workspace can edit each other’s work.

Organizations

Many of our users told us they needed a way to protect their data from employee turnover and centralize in one place. We listened and create organizations. Create an organization, invite all your employees and any surveys and reports they make will stay in one place. As the administrator of the organization, you will have access to all the content and workspaces created. The best part is that when employees leave, all the content they’ve created will stay in your organization.

Miscellaneous releases

Some releases aren’t large enough to deserve their own section but they are nonetheless worth a mention.

  • Share your survey on social media. With 1 click, you can now share your survey with different networks on Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, and Twitter. Check it out.
  • Enalyzer is now in German! We’re always looking to expand and make Enalyzer available to as many users as possible. 2017 was the year we added German to our family.
  • Two-factor authentication. It provides an extra layer of security for your Enalyzer account by protecting it with both your password and your phone. Learn more.
  • View individual answers. Click on a respondent in your respondent list and view their answers. Here’s how to do it.
  • Mail your invoices. You can now automatically have your invoices sent to whoever you want, for example, the accounting department. Go go go!

Wait, there’s more…

We’re constantly releasing new features to ensure you have all the tools necessary to make better decisions for your business, employees, and customers. Aligned with this, we’re also looking to improve and update current features and this year was no exception.

Time series and counter charts

Time series allow you to follow the development of a variable throughout time so you can identify trends and effects of decisions. For example, you can follow your customer satisfaction score over time and see what changes affect it, e.g. more support agents lead to quicker response time and thus more satisfied customers – this will be reflected in your time series charts. Sounds great, right? Well, this is all possible now because time series are applicable to all relevant question types so you can track anything you want! We’ve done the same with counter charts, so now you can count anything you want, for example, your detractors, passives, and promoters when measuring your NPS®.

Reminders

Some people, when they first see your survey invitation have all the intention to answer it but are unable to do so right away and then simply forget. Reminders give them a second chance to participate in your survey. This powerful feature is now also available for anonymous surveys!

Did you know?

Hard works pays off cause we made it into Capterra’s Top 20+ Most Affordable Survey Software. Here’s what Liann Mosier, Product Report Specialist at Capterra had to say:

We published a report that highlights the top 20 survey software based on affordability. Our affordability score is determined by an algorithm that includes features offered, cost of those features, and actual customer reviews which are compiled from across all Gartner Digital Markets (including GetApp, SoftwareAdvice, and Capterra). Enalyzer offered all 15 features that we identified crucial to survey software which helped them rank in the top 10.”

If you agree with Liann or have something to add, help us spread the word and leave a review.

We’ve got tons of new features planned for 2018 and our Dev team is already busy designing and building them – stay tuned.

Get the Enalyzer app without downloading it

Did you know you can get Enalyzer on your phone’s home screen next to your other apps? Go to enalyzer.com and save a shortcut on your phone, so accessing your Enalyzer account is even easier.

You might be wondering why you can’t get Enalyzer on the App Store or Google Play, well that’s because it’s not a native app. Enalyzer is a responsive web app that adapts to any and all screen sizes, making it accessible to survey administrators, report readers, and respondents at any time.

Stop and rewind, responsive who?

  • Responsive web apps are websites that feel like applications. They are accessible through a browser and built to change their appearance based on the device being used. In other words, responsive web apps will adapt to any screen size.
  • Native apps are those you find on Google Play or the Apple Store. They are developed specifically for one platform and can take full advantage of all the device features, such as camera and GPS.

Responsive web apps vs native apps are the Britney Spears vs Christina Aguilera of the software development world. Everyone has an opinion and very dedicated fandoms, however, when it comes to choosing one, it boils down to preference and needs. When looking at our product and audience, the answer was clear – responsiveness was the way to go.

Why responsive?

More than half the world’s population uses a smartphone and more than half of the world’s web traffic now comes from mobile phones, which means that if you have a business today you have to have an online presence and that presence has to be responsive.

Many companies have both – think Facebook and Youtube – but since they are developed for a specific platform – think iOS or Android – the UX/UI and functionality from web to app is different and, in some cases, limited. We don’t compromise on functionality, so we chose to develop a 100% responsive web app.

What do you mean by 100% responsive?

That it adapts to every single screen size that interacts with Enalyzer, covering everyone from survey administrators to respondents. As a survey administrator, you don’t have to get used to a new way of doing things by downloading an app, instead, you can log into your account using whatever device you have at hand and edit your surveys, send them out, check up on reports – anything you need whenever you need it.

We’re not advocating for working on weekends… but what if you just want to take a quick look at your customer satisfaction report to prepare for your Monday meeting? Instead of having to be bound to a desktop all weekend, you can go ahead with whatever plans you had and access your reports on your tablet or smartphone. Your charts will adapt to any screen size and still be easy to understand.

Respondents are the key to any survey. Their time is valuable and therefore it is vital that answering a survey doesn’t seem like a task or a struggle. Enalyzer’s responsive design will automatically adjust to the respondents’ device which increases response rates and rubs off on your brand.

Nowadays, it’s impossible to not be part of a team. According to Deloitte, 90% of companies are redesigning their organizations to be more team-centered, and honestly, why wouldn’t you want to be part of a team? Teamwork combines different skills, approaches, and ways of thinking. With the organization and workspace features, Enalyzer is a great platform for teamwork to flourish – but more on those later.

Goodbye hierarchies and hello networks

We are familiar with conventional hierarchies – you belong to a team that is overlooked by a manager, and everyone is assigned different goals and tasks that are based on goals set by top management. With the changing nature of societies, this structure is slowly disappearing from businesses worldwide. Today, high-performing companies set up teams and assign them a task, once accomplished the team members move on to new projects and possibly new teams. In other words, companies are now a network of teams that encourage a company culture of information sharing and transparency.

   
This is all great and good; however, while a network of teams increases flexibility and innovation, it also increases the need for better coordination and communication. To reap the benefits of team-centric work, you need to make sure the tools your employees have available cater to highly flexible work structures, while at the same time keeping your company’s data safe. Enalyzer’s Organizations and Workspaces were developed with all of this in mind.

Easier and better collaboration

We wanted to create a space that was flexible and could accommodate a multitude of scenarios, while at the same time not infringing on ownership → at the end of the day you own your stuff. We came up with workspaces, a place where you can collaborate with your team on surveys and reports.

Are you part of several teams? No problem, with one account, you can be a member of several workspaces. As a workspace administrator, you can invite your entire team and start collaborating. Since teams change all the time, members can easily leave or be removed whenever it is no longer relevant for them to be part of the workspace.

 

To work together, workspace members simply have to include their surveys and reports and get cracking. Your graphic designer doesn’t have to wait until you’re done setting up the questions to personalize your survey’s look. Instead, you can get your work done at the same time. Workspace members can edit anything about your surveys and reports, however, all the items you own can only be deleted by you and you can exclude them from the workspace at any time. So far, so good, right?

Everything under one online roof

Workspaces are great but they don’t solve everything. Picture this, a team member leaves the company and she forgets to hand over all the important material, one of those things being certain employee surveys and reports your team is working on. What does that normally mean? Well, you need to ask IT to give you access to her email inbox, do a password reset, and transfer everything from her account to a new one. Jesus, just writing this example is exhausting.

Today, companies are set up by various types of employees, such as students, freelancers, part-time and full-time employees. Which calls for a flexible set up that can make transferal of data easy, while at the same time keeping everything secure. So, we thought what if the company is the owner of the surveys and reports and employees can simply administrate? Organizations were born.

With an organization, you can ensure that all data and content related to your company is in one place and not distributed throughout individual employee accounts. Everything created within the organization will always stay there and can never be transferred out, since leaving an organization means leaving all the work you’ve created behind. In short: organizations keep your company’s data in one place and protects it from employee turnover. Since we do everything with style, the organization’s design can be customized to fit your brand with a profile picture, watermark and colors.

Want to hear more good news? You can create workspaces within organizations and drastically increase your employees’ productivity. Together, they’ll be able to make better decisions and work faster on setting up surveys and reports, without having to spend time in long meetings and being afraid of creating duplicate work. With organizations and workspaces, you can have HR and Sales teams work under one online roof.

The ultimate guide to survey incentives

Traditionally, incentives are given when trying to survey “non-responders”, aka people that don’t answer surveys, such as doctors. I mean,…

Traditionally, incentives are given when trying to survey “non-responders”, aka people that don’t answer surveys, such as doctors. I mean, they’re busy – like really busy – and your survey just doesn’t seem to be worth their while, unless they get something in return. By providing an incentive, you’re giving them a reason to find time in their (very busy) schedule to complete your survey.

Rule of thumb: If people have emotional ties to your product, service, or whatever you’re surveying on, they’ll share their feedback. If not, you’ll likely need an incentive to get the highest response rate.

Survey incentives can increase your response rate but they can also attract the wrong respondents or eat up your budget. There are several factors to consider when choosing an incentive and we’ve listed them for you. Thank us later.

Did you know?

According to a study, respondents who are offered cash incentives are more likely to complete your survey and they feel obligated to take their time to give you their feedback

Budget

Always start by look at your budget. It will determine the type of incentive and whether it will be promised or prepaid (more on that later). For example, instead of giving all your respondents two movie tickets, you can make a lottery where only three receive two movie tickets plus popcorn and refreshments.

Who gets your incentive

There are three methods; you can give the incentive to everyone, the first respondents, or do a lottery system.

A lottery system is simple and you’ve probably seen it before. It’s when respondents automatically enter a draw to win something before or after answering the survey. Items could be anything from a gift card to an iPad.

Anonymity

Not all surveys are anonymous but those that are, should remain that way – incentive or not. We recommend you redirect respondents to another survey once they’ve submitted their answers, where they can provide their contact information. This way you can’t link their responses to their personal information.

Your target audience

Remember that you’re offering incentives to increase your response rate, therefore whatever incentive you choose has to resonate with your target audience. You want to offer items that are valuable and easily accessible.

Let’s say that you’re conducting a satisfaction survey for your training courses. To increase the response rate, you decide to give one lucky winner a free spot for the next course. You might risk only encouraging those who enjoyed the course and would really like to participate in the next one, while those who are not interested will not share their opinion with you. Instead, you could provide free technical support, since anyone can benefit from this regardless of his or her attitude towards the course.

It’s vital that you think about the value the incentive generates for your target audience because choosing the wrong incentive might give you a biased group of respondents and thus unusable data or it might not increase your response rate at all.

Types of incentives

Incentives can be broadly divided into two groups: monetary and non-monetary. Monetary incentives are, you guessed it, money and it can come in the form of cash, checks, gift cards, and vouchers. Non-monetary incentives have value but it is not money, such as a T-shirt or notebook, or a charity donation in the respondent’s name.

To help you navigate the world of incentives, here are some ideas:

Cash
This is one of the most common and successful types of incentives. Research shows that cold, hard cash boost rates more than other incentives. Keep in mind that cash is not always practical when it comes to online surveys.

Value and worth are different things; different amounts can have the same value to different people. Let’s say your target population is lawyers, the cash amount should be higher than if the audience was students. Why? Because lawyers are busier than students, therefore the amount needs to be high enough to make taking your survey worth their while. Students, on the other hand, can find the same value with a lower amount.

Free sample or discount
While cash yields the best results, free samples and discounts could be enough for your survey. Consider offering a discount on their next purchase or a free sample of a new product.

Donation to a charity
Pick a charity that aligns with your company’s values and gives respondents the chance to donate to it. Just make sure you clearly communicate the amount you’re giving per completed survey. Apart from benefiting others, you’re also creating positive connotations with your brand.

Giveaways
This could be anything, cups, jackets, pens or key chains. Another option is gift cards and vouchers to online stores, e.g. Amazon. Online items are easier to redeem since online shops are not bound to a geographic location. Giveaways give you a chance to send some branded merch with your company’s logo.

Promised vs. prepaid incentives

Research shows that prepaid incentives, which is when you provide the incentive before the survey is completed, are most effective at increasing response rates. However, this method is more expensive and harder to implement for online surveys since you are rewarding everyone before they take the survey. Conversely, promised incentives are easier since you don’t have to reward everyone and those you do reward have completed your survey.

Did you know?

Research shows that prepaid incentives yield higher response rates than promised incentives.

Quality Control

Sharing your survey on social media or any public platform gives you access to more respondents than other methods. But you have to make sure your incentive is going to the right people.

Use disqualifying questions to eliminate respondents who don’t meet your criteria. For example, if your survey seeks to find out attitudes about a podcast, make sure they have listened to it by asking “Have you listened to the Revisionist History podcast?” If they answer no, set up a condition that redirects them to an end page thanking them for their willingness to participate in your survey but unfortunately, they don’t fit the adequate target group. Also, tell them to get on it – it’s brilliant!

3 guidelines for survey invitations to increase response rates

You’ve invited 500 respondents by email to your survey. So far, only 17 people have opened your survey – and…

You’ve invited 500 respondents by email to your survey. So far, only 17 people have opened your survey – and only 12 people have completed your survey, not even a measly 3% of your target group. You keep hitting ‘Refresh’ on your browser, hoping to collect more data from respondents – but as the days pass, you lose all hope. Does this sound familiar to you?

What you’re experiencing is a question all survey managers struggle with – “How do I get people to open my survey invitations?” In today’s day and age, users are overwhelmed with surveys, from their local coffee shop to workplace reviews. This means respondents are experiencing survey fatigue – before they’ve even opened your survey!

Let’s be honest, nobody wants to open unsolicited emails. Your respondents value their time – and you value their opinion. As the creator of a survey, you’re asking respondents for a transaction, where the burden of the cost lies with them, often with little apparent reward.

Understanding this dynamic is critical when trying to convince users to answer your survey. So how do you break through? How do you get respondents to click on an email they might not have opened otherwise, and how do you convince them to open your survey? Keep reading.

1. Personalize

The importance of sender and subject line are often overlooked when writing survey invitations, with deadly consequences. According to a recent study, 33% of email recipients decide whether or not to open an email based on subject line alone. This means getting this one line of text right is absolutely essential for getting your foot in the door.

According to Adestra July 2012 Report, open-rate of email increases by over 22% with personalized subject lines and over 90% of marketers say they don’t spend enough time on subject lines. This is good news! It means that a personal, interesting subject line will outcompete most other emails your respondents are receiving.

Did you know?

Phrase your subject as a question. For example, instead of Answer our Customer Satisfaction Survey, try: Leonora, have you ever felt let down by Pure Digital? You can easily merge in the name of your respondent and company with Enalyzer’s merge field function.

It is also important to think of the sender name and the sender email. Over 43% of email recipients will mark messages as spam based on the ‘from’ address and sender name.

2. Inform

You need to tell your respondents what your survey is all about. I mean, it’s just good manners. Respondents are far more likely to answer if they know beforehand, what they are getting themselves into. So we’ve made a little checklist of information that is shown to increase response rates:

  • What is the purpose of the research
  • How will their feedback be used
  • Any privacy protections and anonymity settings
  • Length of the survey (in minutes and number of questions)
  • A contact person

Did you know?

CSS-heavy emails often get labeled as “Promotion” in tabbed inboxes like Gmail. Sending a plain text survey invitation may increase your response rates by over 200% to users using Gmail according to one study.

3. Motivate

This boils down to our last guideline: motivate your respondents. Because even after they’ve been greeted personally and informed about why you need their responses, they still don’t know why they should care. This is why you must motivate them.

  • Invoke reciprocity (Be nice and give them gifts)
  • Use incentives (Bribe them with rewards)
  • Publish your results (Make them curious)
  • Follow up with reminders

Did you know?

Timing is key. 2-5pm is when most emails are opened and 10pm-9am is the worst time to send emails.

6 things to consider for better feedback forms

As we all know, customer feedback is essential to improving your product and to understand your users. However, every day,…

As we all know, customer feedback is essential to improving your product and to understand your users. However, every day, organizations struggle to collect valuable feedback, that’s why we want to talk about feedback forms.

Feedback forms, when done correctly, are an excellent tool to understand user experience. They’re easy to digest and fill in, which also makes them easy to build and design. Here are 6 things to considering when designing and distributing a feedback form.

→ Check out a simple feedback form

1. Images are powerful feedback

Allowing respondents to upload screenshots straight from their mobiles, tablets, and desktops is a need to have. Not only will it be easier for them to explain themselves but you will also understand their feedback better. With Enalyzer, you’ll get an easy-to-understand overview of the uploaded images in your reports and raw data files.

2. Don’t force them to provide information

If someone is giving you feedback, they should provide you with all the relevant information, right? Yes, but the one deciding what qualifies as “relevant” information is the customer. Remember they’re using their time to help you out, in other words, they’re doing you a favor. If they don’t want to answer all your questions or simply don’t have the time, don’t force them. Nevertheless, if you need more information from them, just contact them and ask, this approach is better and will guarantee a higher response rate.

3. Ensure it works on all devices

Your users can come across your brand anywhere, which means they might be on their phone or tablet. Make your form accessible to them by ensuring its responsive and it resizes to any device it’s viewed on. Enalyzer is 100% responsive, not only for your respondents but for you as the survey administrator and whoever you share your report with, so you and your team can keep up with your feedback anytime and anywhere.

4. Update your form

Your product, service and/or website will always be developing and moving forward, so make sure your form adapts to these changes. Every once in a while, make sure that what you’re asking is still relevant and will provide you with an understanding of your user’s experience.

5. Less will give you more

Users that are going to report a bug, feature request or just general feedback don’t want to use too much time. They’re willing to share their experience with you but it has to be easy. Cluttered forms will turn people away since they look time-consuming, which makes everything worse if the user is filing a bug report. So what do you do? Keep it simple, uncluttered and easy on the eye – this goes for the design and content – and watch the feedback tick in!

6. Location, location, location

Feedback forms are like real estate, location is all that matters. Well, not exactly, but you get where we’re going with this one. Users are not going to spend their time trying to find your form, so make sure it’s in logical places within your app and website.
