  • Set The Questions – This is the most important part of the survey. You need to consider your audience before setting the questions as it should engage them. Also the questions must be defined by your main goal with the survey. As a thumb rule don’t exceed 10-15 questions mark as this makes the survey unnecessarily long and can force users to quit midway.
  • Branch/Skip Logic– Branch and skip logic basically defines the questions that would be displayed in front of your users based on the choices they make with the previous question. Not every survey requires branch logic but if you are adding branch and skip logic you should be extreme careful with it and test your Survey before you publish it.
  • Publish It– Most online Survey makers let you publish a quiz easily on your website or social media handle by merely using a link. Once you have set the question and defined the branch logic you can easily generate a link and simply paste in your website’s CMS or in the message box of your social media handle.
