Mobile Survey Response Rates ROCK

With so many new ways of gathering survey information, it can be confusing and risky trying something new.  But when you see the the response rates that Ipsos MORI got on a recent survey for the NHS Review of Children's Congenital Heart Services in England, you'll want to seriously consider trying mobile research surveys.
Over 75,000 responses were gathered over a four month period using a variety of response mechanisms. Using the OnePoint Global solution, a mobile response option was included for the first time in order to encourage a wider range of responses, especially from the younger population.

The results were outstanding. 25,000 text message responses were received from 23,500 unique mobile numbers in reply to a single open question on the proposals.

One important note about this survey is that they offered a MOBILE OPTION on their survey.  The logic was simple; with so many people carrying mobile phones, why not offer the options.  And the response rates proved out how right they were.

Survey Analytics has a mobile survey option over at SurveySwipe.   Try the introductory offer called "Instant Connect"  You can deliver your own surveys directly to your own customer list via smart phone or to targeted panel respondents.

Either way, if you've been putting of doing mobile research, start testing a survey or two on your own and see if you get similar results to the ones that Ipsos got.

Top 5 Infographics of the Week: Cyber Security

Earlier this week, we experienced a power outage with our data center at Internap. During this short period of time, our customers were unable to access the site.

Cyber security is, and always has been, a very important issue for us as we continue to grow and meet the demands of a technology-driven society. Nothing is more paramount than the safety of your valuable data. And apparently we weren't the only ones affected, as LinkedIn was experiencing difficulties on the same day and Internap had 3 massive outages earlier this year.
