There are many reasons to run a survey: To collect feedback. To validate a new product. To gather market intel. To A/B test different concepts. To quantify qualitative research findings. To recruit participants to a study. To collect data for an academic study. To prioritize the project pipeline. To understand why someone unsubscribed.
The list can go on and on. Yet, no matter the use case, writing a survey can be challenging. Even seasoned experts can face problems with survey design, such as:
We’re excited to announce the launch of the Bellini Slushie Survey Question Bank. This MVP is our first step in addressing some of the problems that plague survey design.
The Bellini Slushie Survey Question Bank is a free, open-source database of survey questions for everyone to use, no matter your experience with research. The question bank is not another survey platform. It’s a living resource you can continuously reference during the survey design stage.
In the first iteration, you can explore the survey questions and submit any changes or additions to the bank.
We’re launching the question bank with a small amount of questions, translations, recommendations, and examples that we’ve both curated and written. We know the initial set of questions doesn’t scratch the surface on the sheer amount of research questions and categories out there. We plan to continuously add to the question bank through collaboration.
We're keeping this open-source and community-oriented, so anyone can add questions, translations, suggestion changes, etc. to the database. Maybe a question is worded weirdly (knowing myself and my writing, it’s 100% possible), you have some kick-ass translations, or you simply want to add in questions you’ve previously used so others can too. Add it to the bank!
In true MVP fashion, we’ll continuously listen to feedback on the bank and make adjustments and improvements along the way. We want this to be a collaborative effort with the users - especially because we count ourselves among them.

Your missing survey design toolkit.
You’re not alone anymore.
