Use Tablet Functionalities and Gamified Elements for Better Data Collection

Contests and incentives certainly aren’t new tools to entice people to offer up their contact information. The prospect of winning is certainly a motivator, and is a proven way to increase the interaction of event attendees with your data collection survey.

Play name that tune, and invite people to guess what song you’re playing on the tablet, with a chance to win. Insert a digital scratch card or a slot machine to incentivize the respondent. Have a video of a prototype you want feedback on? Load it into your survey and have people rate it, or name it, or tell you what they’d pay for it. If this sounds new and different to you, it certainly will feel the same way to attendees, and spark the face-to-face engagement your data collection depends on.

Incentive Slot machine

Don’t restrict yourself to your booth area! You can literally walk alongside someone who is late for a breakout session, and input their responses to questions on the way. You can take these tools outside and collect data from people on their smoke breaks. The same goes for the vending area. If data collection is what you want, a mobile questionnaire on a tablet is the professional’s tool of choice!

And if the venue doesn’t have wireless connectivity, or loses it during the show, you can keep collecting sales leads and customer data offline. The next time the tablet gets a connection, all data collected offline will instantly sync with the central system where you other survey data resides.

And don’t forget, every tablet has a high-quality camera in it. Put it to use as another unique way to collect customer or prospect data. Take a picture of respondents to include as part of their answers to one of the survey questions. Use the camera to capture the information on business cards at an event. Take photos, or shoot video of respondents experiencing specific features of your product, or undertaking a fun challenge that becomes yet another draw to your booth.

Use a Mobile Data Collection Survey to:

  • Efficiently gather necessary info from customers and prospects while you focus on personal interaction
  • Get higher quality feedback by surveying your respondent during or right after the encounter with your product or service
  • Collect your data even when there is no internet connection! Store your results locally and have them automatically uploaded as soon as you’re connected
  • Increase your response rates by adding gamified and multi-media aspects: Everything from gifs, videos, to a digital scratch card or slot machine will brighten an often ‘dry’ survey and help you get the answers you need

4 Tips to Perfect Your Mobile Data Collection Surveys

Whatever your business or industry, when putting together your data collection survey, remember to have a goal for the survey. Remembering the four Cs of survey design will increase your chances of getting your audience to respond to future efforts, too.

  1. Be Clear by telling the respondent exactly why you’re asking what you’re asking. They’ll appreciate being asked when they know how their information is going to be used.
  2. Be Clever and have a little fun. Be conversational. Use your customers’ language. Make them smile by adding audio and video into your survey. Ask them to rate things with our star, emoticons and sliders. It’ll all add up to a more engaged person willing to share more with you.
  3. Be Concise with short, well-worded questions. Use skip logic to limit the number of questions you have to ask a particular person, in that particular situation.
  4. Be Conscious of the person’s time. Don’t try to overdo it. Get the specific information you need, thank them and be done.
