A questionnaire is a list of a research or survey questions asked to respondents, and designed to extract specific information. It serves four basic purposes: to collect the appropriate data, make data comparable and amenable to analysis, minimize bais in formulating and asking question, and to make questions engaging and varied.
Now I have finished the first part of my primary research which was to analyze what goes into some popular promotion packages which are of my specific genre and are already on the market, I will now ask my target demographic what there opinions are on the matter and also get a better understanding of who exactly is part of my target demographic.
questionnaires are cheap to manufacture. They are also easy and not time-consuming to produce. They also give a us a great deal of information. On the other hand, questionnaires have a low response rate, without things like incentives, people do not feel obliged to fill them out, feeling they are pointless and a waste of their time. To stop this from happening I will make my questionnaire short and stay with the participant until they have filled it out.
The first set of questions will be directed to basic information which will help me gather general information about my target demographic. The rest of the questions will be directed to specific parts of elements within my promotion packages which will require the opinions of my target demographic so i am able to use conventional elements in my final product which appeal to them.
