Consumers need a little motivation to hand over their data to brands sometimes. And there’s no way around it: the absolute best motivation is straight-up cash rewards. Read on for more ways to incentivize a boost in survey response rates.

More than three-quarters of the same respondents said the same about significant discounts or coupons.
The next three additional ways were far more in line with surveying best practices, rather than financial incentives. How else can we boost response rates? Fewer steps in surveys, better survey topic targeting based on their interests/people like them, and regular reminders help too.
