Tech Tip Tuesday - #078

Tech Tip Tuesday – #078 – Getting FREE User Feedback Using Google Forms


Welcome back to Tech Tip Tuesday!

This is your ultra-fast, easy dose of the latest tech that can help your life as a REALTOR®.  Whether it’s using the MLS, Mobile Apps, or surfing around, we’ll give you the tools you need each Tuesday.

Tech Tip Tuesday – #078 – Getting FREE Feedback from People Using Google Forms

Today’s Tip:

Today’s Tech Tip Tuesday, we’ll be talking about how to collect feedback from your clients using Google Forms for free.  Click here to try it out!

When you’re working with a large list of people, and want to get their feedback on something…It’s sometimes useful to create an online form for them to share their thoughts. That way, you can get a feel for the collective opinions of others without talking to each of them. You can also use Google Forms to register people for events.

So, let’s make a form and get a better idea of how this works! First, if you don’t already have a Google account, you’ll need to sign up for one. The process is super-easy. Then, you head to, and click on the plus sign.

There’s a few things to notice on this new page. First, the two tabs at the top called Questions (the side your viewers will see) and Responses (only you and other people who have been specified can see).

So lets say we want some feedback from people. We’ll set up the name. Add an email so we can write them back if we need to. And a few questions.

Each of these questions can be set up with the question type that suits you best.
