Professional Answer Examples
Answer example

"I like to keep surveys short and sweet, and offer an incentive for completing the survey. Demographic questions are a must, such as age, location, and profession for instance. Then, I will include buying pattern questions such as how long they take to make a buying decision, and how often they shop online. Next, I ask a question or two on what motivates them to make a purchase."

Answer example

"I believe that the most important information to collect in a market research survey includes questions on their demographic, their buying patterns, and what they look for in the features or benefits of a particular product or service."
