Each survey has a unique URL, which you can place on your website or in a newsletter or other e-mail that you send yourself.
Pop-up / Pop-under
You can have a pop-up appear automatically when a visitor comes to your website. The pop-up invites the visitor to participate in the survey. The visitor either clicks ‘yes’ or ‘no’.
There are two options at this point. Either the survey opens in a new window at that moment or you can specify that the survey will only appear when the visitor leaves your website. To minimize annoyance to your visitors, the pop-up will only appear once for each visitor. The design and texts of the pop-up can be personalised.
You can embed your survey right in your website. This standard feature allows you to place your survey on any page of your website. This isn’t just a link to the survey, but the actual survey questions on your website page. Change the surveys formatting to match your website’s font family, size and colour. Then embed the survey in any page on your website using an iFrame. All of your website’s navigation remains visible to the user.
Some survey projects may require an easy to remember URL. For instance if you only have street addresses and no e-mail addresses of your target group, you may want to send them an actual letter asking them to participate. Or maybe you want to hand out flyers at an event. In either instance the Survey URL needs to be short and memorable. You could either link through your site, such as www.yourcompany.com/survey or CheckMarket can assist you in registering a special domain name such as www.oursurvey.com, depending upon availability.
Taking the custom URL example one step further, you may wish to limit access to your survey by using a password, or even be able to identify the respondent by having them enter a respondent ID and password. When visitors go to an easy to type custom survey URL, instead of going straight to the survey, they are presented with a login page. The visitors must first enter their respondent-id and password before being given access to the survey. You can generate mail-merge files that you can use to produce personalised letters that you can send through the mail to your panel.
