Developing online surveys can be time-consuming when you first get started. Check out these online survey shortcuts that will put you on the fast track to success.

  • Survey templates: Most vendors offer survey template libraries pre-designed templates for your survey, whether it’s a customer satisfaction survey, marketing survey or some other survey type. This is a quick alternative to creating custom templates.

  • Question library: Most vendors have a question library that gives you the ability to create a library of questions you can reuse again and again so you don’t have to recreate them each time you launch a new survey.

  • Start with your own templates: Many survey tools let you use an existing survey as a template. Use a basic survey to start, then copy it and customize for each project.

  • Import from a Word or text document: Write your survey in Microsoft Word or a text file, then import the survey into your online survey tool (if supported).
