Easy and Cost Effective

Overall, I highly recommend Survey Monkey for quick and easy survey creation. Even at the free version level, there are a variety of quality features that will make this program very useful for both collecting and analyzing data. The interface is incredibly user friendly, and when used in tandem with the mobile app, this product is very convenient and effective for basic survey needs.

Pros

The Survey Monkey platform gives you a variety of ways to customize your surveys, including multiple choice, short answer, and true/false. It also allows you to easily duplicate previous surveys so that you are not re-creating templates you wish to use regularly. The platform also provides excellent analytics for reviewing responses and trends so that you can better understand and track the results of your surveys. The option to make surveys anonymous is also extremely beneficial for more sensitive topics. The best part is, all of this functionality is available through the free version of the platform. The mobile app is also incredible accessible and easy to use.

Cons

The ability to truly customize your survey (logs, fonts, footers, etc.) is strictly reserved to paid subscriptions. The free version of the application gives you up to a maximum of 10 questions, so unless you want to pay the monthly fee, your surveys need to be very concise. For business use, a monthly subscription requires a minimum of three users at $25 per user. This cost adds up quickly, so unless you are implementing surveys very regularly, you may not see the full value.

Reasons for Choosing SurveyMonkey

The free version had a majority of the features we need to periodic use.

The original easy to use tool, now with a ton more features and functionality.

Overall SurveyMonkey is still our go-to tool for measuring employee experience and receiving feedback, while the simple visualizations of our data has proven to be a big bonus in analyzing the data to make decisions around which actions to take to action the data.

Pros

The SurveyMonkey tool has evolved from its original format to grow exponentially in the number of features it offers, but has maintained its core value proposition which has always been ease of use. Understanding the layout and how to build surveys is easy and straightforward, and a quick search of the help materials can explain more intricate functionality that you may want (such as customization and survey logic.) From there SurveyMonkey has evolved to include excellent dashboards to visually display and share the live survey results with others. This feature is especially useful for providing senior leaders insight into the data without having to send around static documents that may change as more responses are received.

Cons

The licensing and pricing structure can initially be confusing and the way individual user data is stored makes it difficult to move from multiple small accounts to a large enterprise account without a lot of consolidation work.

Reasons for Choosing SurveyMonkey

Ease of Use. Dashboard Visualizations. Variety of options to send surveys. How customizable it is.

One of the best in survey builder

Pros

SurveyMonkey manage to offer a quite easy workflow process in building and distributing survey form to the targeted audience of our survey objective. The analytics report that generated after the the survey reach its date maturity is quite extensive and has all the critical data field that we need to improve our marketing campaign.

Cons

There are some of the things that i like least with SurveyMonkey, one of them is the customization on the survey builder is less than other survey software on the market. We have to satisfied with the build-in template form the template library, with not many things that can be altered with it.

Unsure Who To Blame ...

The idea behind digital survey taking is incredible, tech does soooo much for the modern world, but when it comes to surveying, marketing, or attempting to do any type of consumer data collection for means of attaining any type of accurate analysis, I dont know if we will ever have a model for selecting candidates that actually benefits and represents a person or company in the totality which we are seeking. The human psyche is astronomical, our decision making process is based on so many different factors that often contradict, none the less its still right, and sometimes wrong. In saying that, the ease of use is incredible, implementation and all things office & "paperwork" are a breeze, however I don't know if it would have been worth it financially to keep it around. Also the time it takes our staff to sort through the data and try to create a system for receiving more accurate results based on the information we seek is outstanding. Most people do not have the time that it takes to complete an in depth questionnaire without some sort of compensation. It will take a while to create a system that returns the results we seek, and that is assuming the survey taker is HONEST!!! Truly incredible. A huge task if you use the software for anything other than entertainment.

Pros

Ease of use, functionality for simple tasks or very basic data collection. Price. Easy to understand dashboard, mostly user friendly.

Cons

Results were not quite what we were seeking, and it wasn't until we used the software on our own did we find out the complexity behind receiving accurate data. We were being phased out when we shouldn't have been and took some time to figure out that maybe the problem lies behind what we are geared towards, the data we seek, and the problems we try to solve for people. Data collection dependent on societies psyche or judgement forming depends on so much, mostly their ideas and experiences in their reality, which may be wildly different than others, based on the same or different factors. So long story short our results were not what we were seeking and its extremely time consuming creating a model for accurate questioning.

Reasons for Choosing SurveyMonkey

Popularity; a few other products were selected but I was on the team that worked with this software. It seemed like it had been around long enough publicly to trust getting accurate results. You will find that a lot of people still shy away from marketing or data collection. They want to be alone in their worlds, free of computers and information seekers lol. Some, very funny people. Its a huge project that maybe someone will master one day. How incredible would that be??? Its unimaginable. Truly.

Not difficult to learn, and gives quick results

Survey monkey is a very user friendly and effective software for designing surveys and conducting polls. The features are very easy to understand and even easier to apply to your forms when building your questionnaire. Also, for the price, it’s compares very favorably with other alternatives. So I have been able to use it for my personal projects as well.

Pros

Survey Monkey has very useful template options that are ready to be used and quickly finalized. They also offer enough question types to keep surveys refreshing and of high quality to keep Survey fillers engaged throughout.

Cons

It doesn’t offer enough advanced options for preloading data and piping. That would have improved the quality of surveys even more .

Reasons for Choosing SurveyMonkey

Survey Monkey was cheaper

Reasons for Switching to SurveyMonkey

Survey Legend had too many restrictions on the free and basic subscription packages.
