In a world where online survey response rates are falling and surveys are competing for attention with so many other online stimuli, Breaking Blue’s quantitative researchers, Alison and Danielle, will talk about the techniques that clients and agencies can use to get more out of online surveys, improve data quality and engage participants.

Whether on a smart device or on a traditional PC/laptop, we’ll talk about the key challenges to online surveys and why it’s important to make use of engagement techniques. We will also set out some easy ‘takeaway’ hints and tips for all types of digital survey.
