must-ask-questions-post-virtual-event-survey

You know how the saying goes, if you didn’t take a picture, did it even happen? Well, the same goes for virtual events and the post virtual event survey. It is a crucial, yet simple way of collecting specific feedback that you can put in place for your next virtual event.

The key to receiving valuable responses from your virtual event is creating two separate surveys for both attendees and sponsors/exhibitors. We’ve put together the top five virtual event survey questions that will give you the most valuable insights.

To create a successful survey, your survey must follow these tips:

  • Be short and to the point – no need for long-winded questions.
  • Use the active voice.
  • Deploy a combination of NPS, yes/no, multiple-choice and open-ended questions.
  • Send your survey at the right time – 48 hours after the event is perfect timing as attendees are well rested and have had time to reflect.

Virtual Event Survey Questions Types

The most important thing to decide when creating a survey is how you’re going to analyze the information. This is when you decide what type of questions you’re going to asl. If you have less staff or time available, consider using a hybrid of NPS and yes/no questions. To help make your decision, we’ve outlined the different types of questions as well as their advantages and disadvantages.

NPS Questions

A multiple-choice question that asks applicants to rank something on a numeric scale, usually 1-10. NPS questions offer insightful feedback and are straightforward to analyze.

Yes/No Questions

A question that has two options. This question type is simple to analyze and easy for participants to answer.

Multiple-Choice Questions

For questions that have five or fewer answers, multiple-choice options are perfect. Include ‘other’ as an option to ensure you’ve covered everything.

Open-Ended Questions

Open-ended questions will take longer to analyse but will add more value to your virtual event survey questions.
