Online survey tool: SurveyMonkey

Posted: January 27th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: research tools | Comments Off on Online survey tool: SurveyMonkey

If you are looking for a comprehensive, easy-to-use tool for running an online survey, I recommend SurveyMonkey.  SurveyMonkey makes it easy for you to set up and launch a survey, as well as collect, monitor, and process the results.  If you are doing a small scale survey (10 questions or less, 100 respondents or less) you can even use it for free.  For larger surveys you can purchase a monthly membership, of which there are three reasonably priced levels.

If your respondents don’t have Internet access, I believe there are easy options to print out pdf versions of your survey, which you can then distribute.

What are your favorite survey tools?
