49 Copy & Paste Questions for Qualaroo or Hotjar

  • Save

Here are 49 questions you can ask your website visitors in order to uncover their mindset, what they are looking for, why they might be buying from you, and more importantly why not.

To achieve this, the best tools are Qualaroo and Hotjar. I recommend them both.

First, A Few Quick Tips…

To start with, you should try to extract the BEST answer from your visitors. This means asking open-ended questions so the visitor can speak openly and frankly.

It also helps A LOT to qualify the type of answers you are looking for.

For example, here are a few qualifiers you can add after your question:

[Question] + “Explain in as much detail as possible how it will make your life easier / better.”

[Question] + “Please be as blunt as possible, we can take it.”

[Question] + “You can be brutally honest, we love feedback.”

[Question] + “List as many items as you can think of.”

[Question] + “Don't be shy, we read every single response.”

“Tell us the truth:” + [Question]

So an example of a question would then be:

Is there anything on this page that's preventing your from buying today? Please be as blunt as possible, we can take it.”
