(1) New feature - Purchase anonymous responses for market research

You may now purchase anonymous survey responses through SurveyShare. Paid survey responses are also a great way to get objective feedback anonymously on a number of subjects. You may conduct market research, test brand awareness, and more. 

When you purchase responses, you have complete control over their demographics. Even more importantly, we will start collecting responses immediately upon purchase. You may expect all responses within a 1 to 5 day period depending how many responses you want and the demographics chosen. However, as we collect responses, you can see them in real time so you can analyze data immediately.  

If you want to get started now, go ahead and create your survey. When you're ready to collect responses, head to the "My Surveys" section, then click on "Collect" for your survey. You'll find the link to purchase responses below the Response Link. 

(2) Attend Webinar on conducting market research - September 6th at 2pm EST

We're holding a web seminar on September 6th at 2pm EST. In this webinar we'll talk about market research and how to purchase paid responses through SurveyShare. If you'd like to join us, you can do so at

(3) Filter your results for better insight

Response filters are one of the best ways to slice your data into distinct sets. You can then examine the differences and similarities between the sets to gain more insight. For example, do women and men differ in their opinion of a course? What differences exist between employees of different roles? 

Two of the most popular ways to divide data are by demographics or by position. For example. you might divide your employees based on their position in the company, between manager, staff, and hourly employee. Or, you might divide your data by a demographic like age to see if there is any difference in how different ages perceive their work environment or your product. 

If you'd like to divide your data into different sets, add a question to your survey that asks the respondents' position, role, gender, or any other useful demographic. Typically, you'll add a "choose one of many" question type. Be sure to mark the question as "must answer" to force a response and you're ready to go. You can then setup filters in the results section.
