September 14, 2021 | Browse more articles -->

Being a member of Maru Voice UK means you agree to provide honest and high-quality responses to our surveys. The clients and companies we work with rely on us to provide reliable data, so it’s important that your survey answers are valid and thoughtful. It’s the best way to have your voice heard!

Here are 3 tips to keep in mind while taking our surveys:

1. Pay close attention

Always make sure you’re reading the survey question carefully before answering. Is the question asking about your past experiences or your future plans? Online purchases or in-store shopping? You may find it helpful to complete our surveys in a quiet room with no distractions so you can read the instructions and questions carefully.

2. Answer open-ended questions

We actually read your answers to these questions! Open-end responses allow you to expand on your ideas, experiences, and opinions, which provides us with deeper insights on a specific topic. If you write nonsense, your response may be disqualified, which means you could lose any reward you earned for the survey. An honest response is always best.

3. Take your time

This tip goes hand-in-hand with number one. Rushing through a survey is frequently associated with low quality answers. Make sure you’re setting aside enough time to complete our surveys. We state the amount of time it will take to complete the survey at the beginning or in the survey invitation. Use this as a helpful guide to allocate your time – we rely on your thoughtful and consistent responses! Plus, putting the necessary effort into surveys ensures your authentic voice is heard.

In short: thoughtful and complete responses make for high quality data, which is important for providing reliable and respected insights. As always, we appreciate your time and hard work!
