Based on the queries above we can conclude that there are certain benefits and some disadvantages too of conducting online surveys (Love et al. 2015). The benefits are:

  • The cost of collecting and storing data is very low as the overhead is low.
  • Time taken by these surveys is less as well.
  • The respondents who answer these questions have the convenience of doing it at their leisure time and can stop or start accordingly (Cunningham et al. 2015).

Disadvantages of conducting online surveys:

  • Finding respondents is difficult because there are many people without internet services (Benckendorff, Moacardo & Murphy, 2016).
  • Cooperation can be a problem as people can delete the advances made in the study because of infinite questions.
  • There is no professional interviewer who can generate specific results from the feedbacks which has been provided (Benckendorff, Moacardo & Murphy, 2016).


The online survey helped the company by saving both time and cost.

  • It allowed the company to reach a large and dispersed population identifying expectations and preferences.
  • It reduces loss of data as information gets automatically entered (Dijkman, Sprenkels, Peeters  & Janssen, 2015).
  • It allowed manager to guide respondent with root questions that is easy to track response.
  • Besides being easy tabulation electronic data and less interview bias, it reduces data entry errors adding honest responses to research questions.


In order to promote and reach out to wider audience, it is important to conduct and create survey as per plan and requirements. It is important for respondents to have clear idea about the purpose of the survey. Using close-ended questions and rating scale questions will help in examine responses better. Besides logical ordering, targeted population and sampling and pre-testing survey will enhance responses and survey procedure. It is necessary to avoid two important things that are biased questions and us of grids and matrices for responses as it affects accuracy and responds scales (Petrovčič, Petrič & Manfreda, 2016).
