Easy way to create survey using SocialEngine

Why use Surveys?

A survey is a data collection tool used to gather information about individuals. Surveys are commonly used to collect self-report data from study participants. A survey may focus on factual information about individuals, or it might aim to obtain the opinions of the survey takers.

Why are surveys important?

Surveys are a fantastic way to quickly collect feedback from readers. The results help you gauge what you’re doing well and what you can improve, which ultimately leads to better content. Because let’s face it. You’re not a mind reader! The best way to find out exactly what your readers want to see is to simply ask them. Show your readers you value their opinion and their thoughts have value.
