And the survey says…
Remember the Family Feud show? Way back when, Richard Dawson would point to the big lit up answer board and yell, “Survey says!” And then the contestants would find out if their answer was there or not. But who did they survey for those answers? And why did it even matter? Well, of course, it was for the sake of a fun game show. But it also showed how groups of people think.
Have you ever found out what a survey says about your business?
A client of mine told me she didn’t “have a clue” what her customers wanted from her next. So, I suggested she take a survey.
“Take a survey? That sounds complicated” she said.
But I showed her how it doesn’t have to be. Here’s what I told her. And you can do this, too. It’s especially easy if you’re a member of the RondaReady business coach CRM system. Because a lot of the work is already set up for you there.
Come up with some questions you’d like answered. And if you’re unsure which survey software you’ll want to use, don’t let that be an obstacle. Create your questions anyway. And save them in a word document (or Pages if you’re on a Mac) named 90 -day Action Plan Survey Questions. Make it more creative if you like. But you get the idea. Keep the font red to remind you it’s not complete yet.
Then go to your task calendar. Create a task named Research Online Survey Software. And set it for a day you’ve time-blocked to work on your business. When you decide which service to use, create the survey. And then come back to the manual to update it and change the red font. And don’t let next steps be an obstacle for getting first steps done.
I hope you’re starting to realize how progress means way more than perfection.
And besides, perfection is impossible. It’s just a disguise for hesitation and procrastination. Now, this is a simple process, but it’s not easy. And if it was easy? That’s right…everyone would be doing it. And you know as well as I do, they’re not…which makes you the exception. So, be proud of yourself. And keep this in mind, too…
People like to help other people. So, all you have to do is ask.
