How to enhance the respondent experience

Respondent-centric surveys

Let’s face it – there are still way too many boring questionnaires around. They can take so long to complete – some make Tolstoy’s War & Peace look like a tweet! These types of surveys can lose a respondent to our industry for months, if not years. We all know this. We see people speaking out about this at every conference and summit, but still we see the tedious surveys.  But we at Askia are not going to give up: so this is another call to arms to apply the advice we provide to our Market Research clients on how to enhance the user experience & how to be more respondent-centric:  Engage with the respondent  Simplify the process  Decrease…

The numbers just don’t add up…

The debrief is going well, the change in direction the end client needs to take is understood, the meeting is coming to a conclusion. Then the quiet one in the room asks you to go back to slide 26 – it’s the slide with one of the key tabulations with the important figures highlighted in green. The bomb is dropped, “The numbers don’t add up”. The numbers in the cells don’t add up. Everyone counts them. She is right. The researchers look at each other. They count again.…

The show must go on

This time of year is traditionally the start of the festival season in Europe and in any normal year, many of the Askia team would be heading off in camper vans to immerse themselves in a collective celebration of art, music, food, drink & humanity. But this is no normal year. The festival and conference industry has been hit particularly hard by the COVID-19 pandemic and our friends in the MR industry that run their conferences are proving that adversity really is the mother of invention. They have…

Askia Design Control Gallery

As most of you know, our Christine is an enormously talented individual. Probably the number one person to go to at Askia when you want to know anything about Askia. She is also very helpful and one example of this is that, without any request to do so, she has created a really nice, new gallery of all the Askia Design Controls (ADCs). So now you can browse through all 47 ADCs and run examples to see if they can be a useful & neat way to make…

Askia extends its 2020 Spring Webinar Series

Askia webinar spring extension

These are unprecedented & challenging times. However one positive trend that does seem to be coming through is that there is currently a thirst for online learning.

The first one was quite a technical session, all about the use of Askia Design Controls & Askia Design Pages (ADCs & ADPs) encompassing our ADX Studio – a unique place to create your own custom question controls and…
