How would you encourage people to do an online survey (5-8 minutes) to help get feedback for a start-up product/service?
True, I would not take a free survey unless I knew it was for charity or an organization that desperately needs it, I value my time so I would choose not to spend ten minutes on a survey that does not reward me.I have received several of those product surveys through private message in Facebook. Honestly, I never responded to any of them because for me, it is a waste of time. My first question for situations like that is - what's in it for me? I had been interviewed once in a supermarket about a product survey. And since I was waiting for someone so I relented. After the interview, the interviewer handed me a bag of goodies as a sort of token. Maybe if the online survey is like that - a treat or something for the benefit of the interviewee - then you have a deal.
