How to Use The Answers From the Registration Questions
After you collect all the answers, you’ll need to analyze them. Analyzing the answers will help you determine the following:
Which attendee groups are interested in which topics?
Are there any trends or patterns in the answers?
Can you segment the attendees into groups based on their interests?
You can use the results of analyzing the answers to create content for your next event. Or you can use it to improve the quality of your current event.
You can even use the results of analyzing the answers to identify new opportunities. For example, if you notice that one group of people has a common interest, but another group doesn’t, you may want to add something related to that topic to attract those other attendees.
Or you could focus on a particular type of person who didn’t register before. Maybe you noticed that someone was interested in learning about social media marketing, so you created a workshop focused on social media marketing.
