    • Participants place web snippet in site pages
    • One in 5 visitors are asked if they will complete the survey
    • They are not asked more than once as a cookie is dropped at that time (unless they delete the cookie!)
    • The survey screen is launched as visitors leave the site / sub domain, if they have agreed to participate
    • There are 16 main questions
    • The process also captures total number of visitors
    • Supporting reporting software provided including correlations, trends and “raw” data
  • New questionnaire from Jan 2011 (1)
    • Minimal change to questions

    • Any further ideas???
    • One subscriber asked if we could offer optional “which page/s do your comments refer to?” – is this a good idea or should we restrict our attention to a) visitor profile and b) overall experience of the visit?
  • Other imminent developments (1)
    • Customer Centric Index (with Gerry McGovern)
    • ... A very useful diagnostic tool that pinpoints what your website visitors think works and does not work - ideal when planning major changes to navigation, search and other key aspects of your website.
