Creative success doesn’t happen in a vacuum - it’s a collaborative effort

Getting author feedback is how writers develop their work with their audiences in order to create a better product.

Even the lone writer gets outside feedback on their work. The work of a professional author often passes through multiple sets of hands before it is put to print: editors, fact-checkers, publishers. 

Authors can save time, money, and headache by choosing to focus test their ideas with a general audience. You always create your best work when you are able to incorporate meaningful, productive critique into your designs.

Types of author feedback questions

Surveys are a unique, flexible tool that offers authors a chance to get the data they need to fully develop their creative aspirations.

At Helpfull, we take a carefully curated approach when it comes to developing our survey platform. We’ve tried and tested a variety of surveying solutions made for authors (by authors) to figure out how best writers can utilize these techniques to better their work. 

After viewing what we felt were the most commonly experienced grievances inside of the writing community, we developed a series of feedback questions authors should be asking themselves when developing their research survey:

Which elements of my novel am I prepared to test?
Story Endings
Who are my audiences?
What are their demographics (age, gender, income level)?
What do their reading habits look like?
Where are people going to be reading my work?
Will you be selling your novel in brick & mortar stores?
Will your work be available digitally?
On what online platforms are readers able to find your work?
Am I ready to publish?
Is my work free of mistakes?
Does my title do an acceptable job of selling my work?
(If writing nonfiction) Does my work include any historical or factual inaccuracies?
Am I prepared to market my novel?
What channels (social media, news outlets) will you be using?
Do you have the proper marketing budget set aside?
Which platform has the largest overlap with my target audience?

These questions can be used to guide your decision making throughout the course of your literary development. From first draft to final copy, the feedback you receive from 1000's of Helpfull pollsters is going to have a major positive impact on how you work.
