You might be wondering why creating a survey would be useful on your blog and truthfully speaking, it might be a HUGE benefit to your blog.

Everybody has something they want….something they are looking to find a solution for, and that’s why they came to your blog in the first place.

The best thing you can do for your readers, potential customers, and visitors is to provide them with what they want.

How can you do this?

Just ask.

That’s pretty much it.

This also gives you a great edge because it let’s people know that you want their opinion and opens up the door to building a better relationship with them. Here’s my recent article on building customer loyalty.

Just to give you some ideas on what you can use surveys for:

1. Product creation– you want to create products based on what people are ready to buy and not what you think they want.

2. Content– Building your content around what your reader’s are interested in will keep them coming back to your blog.

3. Feedback– You might wanna know how they feel about a particular product you already have on the market or need some ideas on how to make it better. It’s always good to get suggestions on how to do better.

4. Be nosy– Find out what people are using and see how you can provide them with something better. You might get some pretty darn cool ideas for how to serve your audience.

In this video I show you how to create a survey on your blog using the Visual Form Builder.

You can ask as many questions as you want (of course), but for the sake of time, I only made up three.

Make sure you fill out your email notifications so that you get the responses sent to your inbox.

In this video I finish up, and show you how to put the survey on a separate page on your blog.

Here is the HTML code for making the font bigger and stand out with a different color:

<p><font size=“6” color=“red”>YOURTEXT</font></p>

Everything in red can be changed to your preference.

For sending subscribers to your survey page via your autoresponder service, I used Madmimi and Mailchimp as examples on how to do this.

1. Log into your Mailchimp account and click on the list name you using for your survey peeps. Then you wanna click on “Signup Forms” and “General Forms.”

2. Then, under “Create Forms” click on the gray box for options.

3. Once you get to “Confirmation thank you page” as seen below, you’ll see the box for you to put in your page url.

4. Save it and you’re done. Your subs will go to that page after they opt in.

Here’s an additional snapshot of where you would put that link in if you use or decide to go with Madmimi like I do:

You would login, click on “Web Form”, go to a web form you want to edit or create a new one by clicking o “Add Web Form”, click on “Advanced” and put in your page url in the confirmation section.

There you have it.

If you have any questions about how to create a survey or what types of questions you should ask, (some people get stuck on that), let me know. I’d love to help ya!
