How do I create an insightful product satisfaction survey?

To get the most effective feedback from your users, you need to ask the right questions—and in the right way. To help you get started, here’s some tips and resources for research questions:

1. Use Maze’s 350+ Question Bank. If you’re struggling to find the words or scared of missing a crucial research question, don’t worry—we’ve got your back. Asking the right research questions can be difficult, so that's why we created a Question Bank with 350+ questions for you to use. Get it here.

2. Ask different question types in your survey. Your choice of question types depend on what your research goals are and how much detail you’re looking to collect. Here’s a few examples to help:

  • Multiple choice questions: the most common question type asked in surveys, multiple choice is a great way to yield high response rates as they don’t require too much effort from participants. However, you’ll need to add some qualitative question types to your survey if you’re looking for deeper context.
  • Multi-select questions: similarly to multiple choice questions, multi-select questions yield high response rates—the only difference is participants can (and are encouraged to) select more than one option.
  • Scale questions: also know as ‘Likert scale’, these questions help gauge customer sentiment in an easy, visual way. Just ensure your scale is clearly marked so users understand what to do, and don’t switch options around on different questions—this just causes confusion and will skew your results.
  • Open-ended questions: the best question type for capturing feedback in a user’s own words—you can really tap into the mindset and context of real people to help your research. Although it’s harder to collect responses with open questions, simple tricks like not including required word counts can encourage more people to share their thoughts.
  • Yes/No questions: While a closed-ended question like ‘yes’ or ‘no’ won’t give you much qualitative information, it can be very useful when zooming out to see the bigger picture on your users. Just be careful with your question wording—look out for double-negatives!

When should I run a product satisfaction survey?

If you’re releasing a new product feature or service to your users, it’s worth planning a product satisfaction feedback survey to send them after they’ve had time to use it. For example: your Product team is planning to add a new ‘commenting’ feature to your digital product with the goal of collaboration in mind for your users. With a product satisfaction survey, you want to ensure not only that the feature has accomplished the intended goal and made life easier for your customers, but also that there’s no potential drawbacks that were missed.

While it’s a good practice to send a product satisfaction survey after major updates and releases, we recommend getting into the habit of sending one quarterly survey to keep on top of customer satisfaction trends.
