To get a feel for how CustomerSure works, and to experience things fom your customers’ perspective, start by making a test survey, mailing it to yourself and filling it in. This first guide walks you through creating a survey and email template, the next guide will show you how to send your survey to yourself.

Step 1: Create a new survey

Don’t worry about fully customising your survey at this stage—there are many more options available once you are editing your survey. We keep survey creation fast and focused on your questions.

  1. Log in to your account (Open the log in page).
  2. Click Surveys on the main menu.
  3. Click the Create a new survey button.
  4. Fill in the form using the inline help. (For this test don’t worry about the precise questions, just select a few examples in the software.)
  5. Click the Create Survey button at the bottom.

You can have as many surveys as you need. Often, our customers find it helpful to create a different survey for each touchpoint in a customer journey. Examples include ‘Post Sale’, ‘Post support call’, ‘Renewal’, ‘Cancellation’ etc. If you would like some help working out the best set up for your business, feel free to get in touch – we’re always keen to help.

Step 2: Set up an email template

You can have as many email designs as you need. You might want different emails for different surveys, or even different looks for each sub-brand you have. Each time you send a survey to customers, you can specify which email template to use.

  2. Click the Create a new email template button.
