Do you find yourself in a situation where you can’t meet people in person but still want the show to go on? Have you recently canceled your offline event and moved online?
Chances are you might be stressed and busy planning for the event. You need resources for online events that will make your job easier. One of the challenges faced in online events is to keep the audience engaged. How do you if someone’s listening to you or not? How do you know if you should present better content?
Sensing people’s preferences and reading their minds definitely helps, but the best decisions are made based on the data. And one of the easiest ways to collect data is to create a survey.
