Survey Time

My mentors are always telling me about the danger of assumptions. So to try and get some real user insights I’ve spent the past couple of days assembling this survey.

It wasn’t nearly as easy as I thought it would be and sitting down with multiple people watching as they filled out the survey was a very beneficial exercise. One of the hardest parts of writing the survey was deciding the objectives and then creating questions which would achieve these objectives. There was a dark period mid way through where I got quite distracted and confused as I tried to ask questions about more general trends, but I managed to pull it back in the end and I’ve already received 80 very insightful responses. The survey is still open for a couple of days, so please send it to all the fashionable girls you know.

I used to create and send this survey and I unreservedly recommend it to anyone who is thinking about sending a survey, much less bloated than SurveyMonkey.
