How to Write a Customer Feedback Questionnaire
If you own or manage a business, one effective way to get an idea of what your customers think about you and want from your company is to go straight to the source. A customer feedback questionnaire or survey is one of the better ways to do that.
Before you start your customer feedback questionnaire, consider what your actual goal is. Do you want an overall idea of what consumers think of your business, or do you have specific questions about a product or service? Your goal should be clearly defined so that you aren’t asking dozens of open-ended questions that have your customers abandoning the survey in the middle. Create a title that tells consumers what you want to know. If it resonates, they may be more likely to complete the questionnaire.
Determine Your Audience
Making your survey as personal as possible is another way to entice consumers to take it, but you can’t do that without determining your target audience. You can create an optional survey to gather demographic information that pops up every time someone browses or shops on your website. You can send it out to your email list. You can provide a paper questionnaire to visitors to your store. There are several options, and finding out this information can help you determine your goals and lead you in the right direction.
Create Your Questions
The most important part of customer feedback questionnaire creation is determining what you want to ask. Try not to ask more than 10 questions, or your customers might grow bored. Don’t ask confusing or multiple-part questions that are difficult to answer, and always give the customer an option such as “prefer not to answer” so that you don’t lose surveys over one or two questions. Multiple choice questions can be better for gathering information than those that simply leave the customer with a text box where they can write an essay or nothing at all.
Make It User-Friendly
Be sure your survey is as easy for customers to complete. Work out any kinks if you’re offering it online, and make sure it’s mobile device-friendly. Use a template that’s easy to read, and make sure everything is clearly labeled. You never want a cluttered template that’s confusing or makes the questionnaire seem more complicated than it actually is.
Create a Thank You and/or Incentive
Finally, give your customers one more reason to take that survey. A nice thank you page is a good start. This lets your customers know you truly appreciate the time and effort they took to fill out the questionnaire. Some companies even offer an incentive, like a discount code, coupon, free item or something else that’s of value to customers.

Integrating Tourism and Recreation Travel with Transportation Planning and Project Delivery (2004)
Chapter: appendix a - survey questionnaire.

Because it is UNCORRECTED material, please consider the following text as a useful but insufficient proxy for the authoritative book pages.
34 APPENDIX A Survey Questionnaire NATIONAL COOPERATIVE HIGHWAY RESEARCH PROGRAM Project 20-5, Topic 33-11 QUESTIONNAIRE INCLUDING TOURISM AND RECREATION TRAVEL IN METROPOLITAN AND STATEWIDE TRANSPORTATION PLANNING & DECISION-MAKING The logistics and trends for tourism and recreation travel in the United States present a challenge for the transportation system. The success to meeting this challenge will depend on how well transportation agencies, tourism/recreation agencies, and tourism/recreation providers work together to define and implement a process where tourism and recreation travel concerns can be supported through discussion, project design, funding, and implementation. This integration already exists in many states in different forms with varying degrees of success and has influenced several functions within a DOT: â¢ Policy making that explicitly supports interagency collaboration, â¢ Transportation planning that reinforces the tourismâtransportation link, â¢ Data needs and analysis methods modified to identify tourism activity/impacts, and â¢ Project implementation inclusive of relevant tourism stakeholders. This questionnaire seeks to shed light on those issues by documenting the state of practice among transportation, tourism, and recreation agencies and tourism and recreation providers. This survey will revisit some of the recommendations and guidelines defined in an earlier NCHRP study, Tourism Travel and Transportation System Development, to update how the practices have changed and learn more about the transportation issues arising from tourism/recreation travel and the roles of interested stakeholders. The questionnaire should be filled out by persons who are familiar with your agencyâs/organizationâs transportation or tourism planning activities or transportation concerns. Your answers to this are relevant and important regardless of whether or not your agency/organization actively participates in a transportation planning or decision-making process that can influence tourismârecreation travel outcomes. Please return the completed questionnaire and any supporting documents by June 15, 2002 to: Lisa Petraglia Economic Development Research Group 2 Oliver Street, 9th Floor Boston, MA 02109 If you wish, you may fax your response to her at 1.617.338.1174.

TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Synthesis 329: Integrating Tourism and Recreation Travel with Transportation Planning and Project Delivery provides an overview of current practice at transportation agencies, metropolitan planning organizations, state tourism and parks departments, federal land management agencies, and regional planning agencies. Overall, findings reveal that many state departments of transportation (DOTs) are now actively involved in tourism-related planning issues -- either proactively or in building solutions to infrastructure, access, or environmental issues that impinge on the success of tourism in the region.
