5. Make sure the survey covers all facets of consumer satisfaction

In order to accurately measure consumer satisfaction, a survey should cover all of the following topics:

  • Does the product or service live up to your target audience’s expectations?
  • How likely is your target audience to recommend your organization to a friend?
  • How does your organization compare to the ‘ideal’ organization?
  • How likely is the prospect to become a loyal customer?
  • What are the stakeholder’s affective and cognitive impressions?

6. The rule of three

Measuring consumer satisfactionis best done using 5-point, 7-point or 10-point scales in which zero means ‘utterly dissatisfied’. Each component of satisfaction should be represented in the form of three related questions. For instance, consumer satisfaction concerning an organization’s accessibility can be probed by the following questions:

  1. How satisfied are you with the amount of parking space?
  2. How satisfied are you with the size of the parking spots?
  3. How satisfied are you with travel time?

7. Basic demographics

Last but not least, the survey should include questions related to the stakeholder’s personality and demographics as well in order to support proper market segmentation analysis. Get your survey started today!
