Welcome to Sugar Dot Surveys! Every other month or so, I post a survey to gather your input on a specific cookie or business topic. Once the survey ends, I compile the results and write a summary post here on Cookie Connection. (You can read my previous surveys and recaps here.)
There's so much that we can learn from each other!
Let's talk money - a sometimes awkward but very necessary conversation! I speak with a lot of cookie decorators who struggle with how to handle the money side of things with their customers. The answers to this survey will help you to see what others are doing so you can (hopefully) handle your invoicing and payment processing more successfully.
This survey is for those of us in the business of SELLING COOKIES. All questions refer to how you handle the invoicing and payment on your cookie orders. PLEASE DO NOT ANSWER THIS SURVEY IF YOU DO NOT TAKE COOKIE ORDERS.
Please answer each question keeping in mind what you MOST OFTEN do. Of course there are exceptions, but we can learn better when we see how things are handled in a typical situation.
Thank you in advance for participating!
Please share this survey with your cookie friends so that we can get input from as many cookiers as possible! I plan to start compiling results on September 15, so be sure to answer this survey before then.
ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS (PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU TAKE THE SURVEY!)
(1) Open-ended (aka fill-in-the-blank or "Other") responses below are limited to 255 characters. If you run out of space on any question, feel free to elaborate in the comments area under this survey, but please identify the question (by number) to which you're responding.
(2) Unfortunately, our survey software will not allow you to skip questions. You must answer every one, or the system won't accept any of your responses. If a question does not apply to you, simply select "N/A" (not applicable) in multiple choice questions or write "N/A" in fill-in-the-blank questions. Thanks!
Let's get started!
