The most obvious way to collect feedback on your manuscript is to let your readers comment and react directly in the text, but did you know that you can also slip in reader surveys between chapters?

Here’s how you do it:

  1. Go to the Content overview.
  2. Click Add > Add Survey.
  3. Add your questions!
  4. Click Save – your new survey will land after your last chapter.
  5. Move your new survey to the desired place by dragging and dropping it in the Content list.
  6. That’s it! The answers will be collected under the Reports tab.

Best practices when running reader surveys
Our data shows that readers tend to get worn out if you ask them too many questions, too frequently, so the best result is usually achieved by putting one survey at the end of the book, alternatively one at the beginning, and one at the end. To help with what to ask your readers, we asked our authors for their best questions – find the 11 most popular questions here!
