Surveys are SO much fun! I have created surveys for my team and my customers for a few years now. And I always have great success with them.

So WHY would you want to create a survey?

You can reach a ton of people this way

You can ask all the right questions

You can get everyone’s updated email and address

You can ask your booking and recruiting questions

You can ask specific questions targeted to something you’re working on

My latest survey was made for my new Birthday Club:

I asked:


2. Birthday month

3. Email address

4. ever thought about doing a catalog show

5. What month would you like to do that (with 3 months to choose from)

6. ever thought about doing a home show

7. What month would you like to do that (with 3 months to choose from)

8. ever thought about doing a fundraiser

9. ever thought about becoming a consultant

Now, I have used for probably 3 years. I recently tried Google  Forms and I think I may be making the switch. I have had a couple people send it my way in the last couple years. Meaghean Farrington sent it my way about a year ago. And then Missy Nelson sent it my way just recently. So, when  I had a second, I decided to play with the Google Forms.

Here is what I like about Google Forms vs. Survey Monkey:

~Google Forms does not have a cut off # for responses. Survey monkey cuts you off at 100 responses before you have to PAY to view them

~Google Forms allows you to view the responses right from your screen in some kind of excel looking document (I’m no expert, that description is as expert as it gets. lo!)

~Google Forms has a much “cleaner” feel to it. The survey just looks nicer in my opinion

In Direct sales, it’s so important to always keep things fresh for your customers. A survey can help you do that. You want to know what they’re THINKING!  You can ask them the booking and recruiting questions in a “non-threatening” way. You could also ask them a question about something you were working on (party themes is one I’ve done).  So check out this quick tutorial on how to set up your own survey:
