Text messaging has changed the game. Research shows that 85% of people over the age of 15 carry their cell phone with them at all times. That means that businesses large or small can do mobile surveys in real time and get instant results. You're no longer restricted to direct mail, email, or the telephone.

SMS Web Surveys

Surveys allow you to send out a set of related questions. This can be designed to gather information about your customers' experience in your business, or their preferences. We can set up several different mobile survey campaigns:

  1. Mobile web survey, where participants fill out the answers on their mobile browsers.
  2. Text Message Survey Software, all questions require text message response. Based on answers, certain questions can be skipped.
  3. Mixed – SMS & Mobile web survey – where participants can choose which survey to take.
  4. Rating – participants can rate several different questions. This is prefect solution to ask for feedback.
  5. All of our solutions can be bundled with data capture and follow up campaigns, based on clients’ data segmentation.
  6. In addition, at end of campaign, all participants can be automatically entered into a text messaging drip campaign. By creating a SMS or MMS drip campaign, you can run more surveys in the future, ask for feedback or simply send "Thank you messages" to all text message survey participants.

SMS Voting

SMS voting is a little different. It is a message that asks a user to provide feedback or reply with a choice of several options. After the recipients reply with their responses, they can then be further targeted with follow up messages. They can even be segmented into groups based on their choices.

This is an example of SMS voting campaign setup and results:
