In June BtoB Online asked their webcast audience the question “How does your organization evaluate unstructured comments from customers?”
72% We review each one manually
21% We collect but don’t analyze it
6% We use text mining tools
1% We have an individual code the responses
Now you must interpret the results from any webinar poll understanding that the audience was not randomly selected and may not be statistically significant, but if this makes you think for a moment about how your using your viewer feedback than this is a good exercise!
The intelligent use of polls and surveys is an effective method for gathering feedback, but also for discovering your target audience needs and concerns. We have used polls effectively to uncover new or related applications for products and services. So give those polls and surveys some thought, use them during during your webinar, and then listen to what your audience is really telling you.
