WATCH: How to Avoid Using Industry Terms in Your Survey Questions

Welcome to the fifth installment of our nine-part video tutorial series on how to write awesome and effective surveys! In the series, our Jumpstart Survey Creation experts at SurveyMonkey Audience discuss the step-by-step process for writing a great survey and share top tips to help you get started. In part four, we covered the pro and cons of writing a Yes/No question.

In the video above, we explain the importance of writing a survey question so it’s easy to understand for everyone. When trying to write clear survey questions, using “industry terms” can sometimes be an issue for respondents. Be careful when including terminology that might only be familiar to you and/or your industry. Creating clear, straightforward survey questions is also best. If you have to leave in a complex or obscure word, provide a definition or some examples of what you’re talking about.

Don’t forget to check back here for even more useful tips to come in our How-To video series.
