10 customer satisfaction survey questions to include

You have to be on top of your customer service—always. But to start improving, you need to know where to begin.

Send out a customer satisfaction survey to see where you stand with your CSAT. Turn detractors into your biggest fans by showing them that you can do better—but don’t forget to reward your brand’s fan club too.

Okay, not everyone is going to become a promoter for your brand. But at least by opening a conversation, you’re doing everything you possibly can to discover and improve your Net Promoter Score®.

Use these top customer satisfaction survey questions to find out what your customers are really thinking:

  1. How often do you use our product?
  2. What do you use us for the most?
  3. What’s your favorite thing about our service?
  4. If you could change one thing, what would it be?
  5. How likely are you to recommend us to a friend?
  6. What should we do next to make you smile?
  7. Was there anything that nearly stopped you signing up?
  8. If our product dissapeared tomorrow—how would you feel?
  9. How easy was it to use/buy our product?
  10. Do you have any other comments to add? Or a joke?

How to write great customer satisfaction survey questions

Sure, you can use the most popular questions above. But sometimes, you need to go a little deeper. And if you do, here’s some tips on how to succeed with the right questions—without being biased or offending anyone.

Let people skip questions

Sometimes people just don’t know—and that’s absolutely fine. How can Katy answer the question “how did our store smell today?”, when she was completely blocked up with a cold and only dashed in for some lemon and honey?

When people are presented with questions they don’t know the answer to, they usually desert the online survey completely. We’ve all done it.

Avoid this by letting people skip a question if they don’t want to fill it in, or by adding a simple “I don’t know” response. Your customer satisfaction survey isn’t a test and by putting customer experience first, you’ll only improve your CSAT.

Avoid influencing people

We’ve all filled out cheesy customer survey questions which are completely biased towards the company.

“How were our amazing customer success team today?”—Actually not so great, Dave hung up on me.

“Was it easy to find things in our organized aisles?”—No, it looked like someone had let a few bears loose.

“Who made your visit extra special today?”—I’d say it was Karen, she smashed my eggs while scanning them.

If you’re asking questions like these, you’re going to be left with a load of useless answers—and a few replies from trolls.

Instead of asking “How were our superstar team today?”, sack the superlatives and ask, “did our team resolve your problem?”

Let every customer tell their own story, and listen very carefully.

Remember that timing is crucial

Generally, the sooner you send the survey, the better. Are you going to strike while when the order form has been processed or wait till the product lands in their hands?

Segmenting your users is essential before sending out your customer satisfaction survey—and timing is all.

Ask how people’s shopping experience was within 24 hours and it will still be fresh in their minds. Any later and they’ll probably have forgotten, unless it was awful—looking at you Karen, put those eggs away.

Likewise, find out how the shipping process was after the package has hit the doormat, and not a minute earlier.

Never forget your goal

You want to find out how happy your customers are. You’re not trying to do market research for a new product just yet, so don’t be tempted to veer off course.

Every survey you send out should have a clear goal. Before you even start putting the blocks of your typeform together, think:

  1. Who are these customer survey questions for?

  2. What are we actually asking?

  3. How are we going to use this information?

If you can’t answer these questions, take a breather and rethink your customer satisfaction survey plan. Go for a walk, catch-up with your dog—or start planning how to build a barception.

Talk like, well, a human

Robots haven’t taken over our jobs yet, so don’t start acting like one. Engage people by creating a customer feedback survey that mirrors a conversation.

Turn “users” into people. Ask questions as you would if you were speaking—ditch any jargon or formalities. Say hello, ask their name, and why not add a Thank You screen with a discount code on their next purchase? They’re doing you a big favor.

It’s the little things that make the difference and will take your business from meh to YEH.

Don’t create questions to reach a “limit”

As long as you’re writing a customer satisfaction survey that will give you the information you need, don’t get too worked up over the number of questions.

Some people say 10 questions is the optimum number. Others warn you not to go over 20 questions. Sometimes, even one Likert scale question can do the job. It really depends—but as a rule of thumb, the shorter a customer satisfaction survey is, the better.

52% of people said they wouldn’t complete a survey if it took them over 3 minutes. We close more surveys than we complete, so keep it short and sweet.

Make it simple for people to whizz through your customer satisfaction survey and you’ll end up with a higher response rate. And that means you can really start concentrating on how to give the best service ever and increase your customer loyalty.

No other software makes it so easy for marketing teams to run surveys with customers—it’s intuitive and simple to use

How to measure customer satisfaction

It’s a weird thing, isn’t it? Measuring how happy your customers are.

A customer satisfaction survey is the best way to get real, honest feedback into your inbox about your business. But there are other methods you should be using too to complement your CSAT online survey.

  • Keep an eye on social media and make use of online listening tools that are available
  • Talk to your customers—invite them in for a coffee or lunch and discover how your product/service helps them
  • Send out regular satisfaction surveys—alternate between longer surveys and ‘on-the-pulse’ one question polls
  • Set up Net Promoter Score® tracking—then share it with your team weekly so everyone knows what your CSAT is looking like
  • Analyze your survey responses and findings all the time—can you see anything that comes up over and over again? Remember to follow-up with your users too
