Send email invitations via CheckMarket

With the CheckMarket survey tool you can automatically send email invitations to your contacts. It is quick and easy and you will have an overview of who has completely responded to the survey, who has partially responded, whose email address bounced, etc.

Using this channel each contact will receive a unique and personal hyperlink through which the responses can be matched with that contact. Unless you have a recurrence schedule activated, the survey can be filled out completely only once with this link.
