Most of the marketing stuff I do as I go, which most of the time means: totally unprepared. I’m sure someone wrote a great post/book about it, but I operate on two states:
Which is exactly how I approached my first survey. Which went great by the way, I got awesome feedback from you. Some lovely souls left cute messages that made my heart warm. But! Of course there’s a but, when you choose to learn on your mistakes, mistakes will happen. There’s one thing I didn’t think of and I wish I had. Don’t worry, it’s coming.
But first! Why I chose Typeform? It’s easy, it was the only survey service I knew, and only because I’ve participated in a survey made via Typeform a half hour earlier. I knew wasting time on Facebook will someday pay off.
This was a first shocker – 40% of you decided to leave a suggestion. I was happy to read all of them and I will put some of them on a list of upcoming freebies. Thank you! Want to know what the funniest was? – Rick and Morty (wut?!) – I actually tried to watch the first episode on Netflix the other day, emphasis on “I tried” 😉
I’ll do my best to create more educational content 🙂
That’s what you call a motivation! Most of you want more content, that’s huge! Also, got some really sweet comments in the “other” section – Thank you! I’ll put those in my rainy day folder 🙂 The most Intriguing thou was: I’d like more content on things no one talks about? – Now, I’m dying to know! And I have no clue – You know why? – I’ll tell you later 😛
And the last one was about the money and we don’t talk about it, cause it’s taboo.
Gotcha! – I’m just kidding!
So I guess I’m in the sweet spot! Or… Am I (wink, wink) You’ll never know. Oh who am I kidding you’ll find out soon enough.
To be honest I’ve asked some of those questions in my newsletters earlier but apart from few lovely conversations I din’t get much response. So the first lesson is: it’s easier to take a quick survey than respond to the email. If I had to guess I’d say: it’s because it takes less time to pick and choose the answers, and leave the occasional comment than to write a message that requires more attention.
And here’s the biggest mistake the missing question I wish I asked:
