Comments: Survey Monkey has benefited the company that I work for because it allows us to quickly create surveys that are professional and that make it easy for people to respond. The feature that allows you to filter responses has been one of the most beneficial for my company as it helps us to ensure the people that respond to our surveys are the intended audience. For example, if we want to survey supervisors, Survey Monkey allows us to have the first question of a survey ask if the respondent is a supervisor. If the respondent answers no, that they aren't a supervisor, we can immediately have them directed to a thank you page that explains how we appreciate them taking the time for the survey but that at this time we are only seeking responses from current supervisors. It has been a feature that has helped increase survey response accuracy and save the time of those people who are responding because if they aren't the audience we are looking to survey, we immediately filter them out with the first question so they aren't wasting their time responding and so that we aren't wasting time sorting responses that aren't valid four our purposes.

Pros: The thing about Survey Monkey that I like best are its survey templates. Survey Monkey has so many templates of surveys that are professionally built and designed. The questions that are in the templates are diverse, educated and are all designed with the purpose of the survey in mind. Each question in the templates have its own purpose and is important for the bottom line. I like that if you want to use a template but don't want a specific question or you want to add an additional question or edit an existing question - you can. Survey Monkey's templates are fully customizable.

Cons: I do not like that the Survey Monkey logo and branding appear on all surveys that you create with Survey Monkey. The branding even appears in most of the paid versions of Survey Monkey. I think that - especially if you are paying for an account, that you should be able to opt-out of having the Survey Monkey advertising or branding on your surveys. This is important because when you distribute a survey, you do so with the intention of getting as many responses to the survey as possible. In order for people to participate in surveys - especially electronic surveys, they must trust the source. I have found that many people are concerned when responding to electronic surveys that their answers or personal information will be shared. With the Survey Monkey branding - especially for people that are not familiar with Survey Monkey, it could decrease the likelihood of people trusting the source and responding. I think that all versions of Survey Monkey - even the free account - should have the option to remove the branding. However, I especially think that the paid accounts should have the option to remove the branding.

Pros: The nice thing about survey monkey is that it gives you an easy way to get opinions on various topics through a simple form. Furthermore, rather than having to create the form by hand, Survey Monkey does all the work. Choose your question type, input the question, and *boom*: you've got your first form up and running.

Since Survey Monkey is based on links, it also protects any user from inputting data twice to skew your results. It is not full-proof (the system uses IP addresses so a computer can only be used once. If you use another device, however, you could potentially reuse the link), but is certainly better than nothing.

Lastly, the way it displays the data for the person who created the form is easy to read and simple to comprehend. This makes it a breeze to manipulate your data and use it for whatever you need to use it for.

Cons: While there is a basic plan, Survey Monkey does have paid options. This means the basic plan is severely limited in options. You have a limited number of surveys, questions, and even responses. Customer support is even limited based on whether you pay money or not. While every program needs money to pay for their different employees, the price is certainly steep.

Furthermore, as far as responses go, it would be nice to group responses based on participant. Say you created a survey in which you were asking your employees to rank different staff benefits. If one person was unhappy with the company in general and gave 1 star to everything, it would group the responses for each question. You as the form creator would not be able to look at the results and be able to firmly say that it was only 1 person who was unhappy with everything instead of a few people unhappy with certain things. If you could group responses by the person responding as well, that would make everything a lot easier.

Overall: Survey Monkey is an easy-to-use system which has provided a means by which we are able to better understand how we have succeeded with different customers and where we need to improve. While there is a fee to receive all the benefits with Survey Monkey, it has certainly been worth it.

Pros: We found it so easy to set up any type of survey based on what data we wanted. Competing services do no come close to the survey type options that SurveyMonkey offers for all manner of uses ranging from inter departmental data to customer research.

We didn't even have to read through the documentation before using the services that SurveyMonkey offers, a towering testament to the intuitiveness inherent in the service.

The templates are really helpful for a new term members who don't know how to craft a professional and complete survey. We mostly start with the provided templates and slightly modify them depending on our needs.

Every team member gives the user experience an A+; there's little or nothing to complain about with the user experience

Cons: the very attractive advantage plan is quite expensive for small to medium businesses. It would be nicer if this package was slightly more affordable since it has very important features that the marketing department cant really do without.

There isn't a live chat option that we could use. This means employees from differing time zones can't easily get helped

Pros: It is an ultimate cloud-based software which helps you to create your own surveys with the help of question format templates. Its basic version is free, so you can try it for free. It is very easy to create a survey with a variety of question types. It is very intuitive and user-friendly i.e. can be operated with a short learning curve. It has great reporting capabilities and in addition, it's time complexity is also very low. The combination of data and results are also very good. It allows you to customize your questions. Its uploading and shareability are quite remarkable. It helps you to know whatever they want, through surveys which is also very helpful.

Cons: Let's talk about some negative aspects of SurveyMonkey. Sometimes it hides some important information while doing surveys and other times snags are being caught that resulted in the improper implementation of surveys. It is also having the problem of creating duplicate entries. You cannot change font type, cannot export data in free version, doesn't allow collaborations, limited survey responses, inability to include video or graphics into the survey, etc. are some of the other problems of this application. Although, its time complexity is good but does not work well with more complex surveys and complicated skip patterns. However, you must have to learn to know how to analyze the results on the more advanced level. And lastly, if you want to use it to the fullest, you must pay higher for it.

Pros: We were working on some business logic enhancements for our client who is an online shop.

As we run out of free version capabilities really quick, we ended up on Advantage yearly subscription. While our client was excited about ability to perform segmentation of his clients, client also wanted to share some of survey results with his end users in real-time. Part of client end-users were excited to feel influencing on online shop design and assortment, so, I believe, we also earned an additional points of our end users loyalty. The client itself is really successful, they increase sales something like 3x over pas year, and the role of surveys in that is undoubted.

Cons: Sometimes there's lack of options to provide enough options to create flexible enough survey.

In particular we were unable to fin an easy option to switch users to another flow of survey based on segment they qualify based on first 3 questions. Survey results are not ordered by time that participants took it.

Overall: Client increased sales 3x times!

Pros: I rated customer support although I've never spoken to them and never had a need to. I didn't want to give them a low or average rating, so I gave them the benefit of the doubt with a 4-star :) Truly, this is software that you can set up with little to no management on a regular basis. When you are ready, you can pull the data you've collected and do some fancy filtering when your team needs further insight into one aspect of your data collection. It's a no brainer to add this to your business process.

Cons: For the most part, I don't have any! Plus they have a monkey in their logo... who doesn't love that? If I must say one thing, then I'm unable to send out a general survey link while at the same time automating the collection of responses into separate categories.

Overall: We are able to maintain a high standard meeting and exceeding guest expectations because we use this tool as a tool for quality control. We are constantly monitoring whether our guests receive the experience that they are promised when they first become a customer.

Pros: Its free version is very convenient or with a small investments of money, a very versatile tool is available for surveying. The response tabulations are made immediately and it is easy to send the interviews to the respondents.

The questions can be reordered in a simple way, after the questionnaire has been elaborated, facilitating the restructuring and design of the survey.

It does not occupy space on my hard drive, which makes it available anytime, anywhere.

The program tabulates and graphs the results, as it is answered (real time), which contributes to saving time in this activity.

The software highlights the highest values in each item, which contributes to the rapid interpretation of the results.

It indicates through the use of the highlighter who has answered the survey, which facilitates locating the missing persons by filling it out.

Cons: When questions are asked with multiple answers and require clarification in the order of the response, there may be a problem. Also when questions related to knowledge are asked and you want to discriminate the first mention (Top of mind) of the rest of the mentions.

There may also be problems with open questions, their quantity and how to analyze them

Overall: This software is a tool that I have used and I would recommend it with confidence to my colleagues. Several types of questions can be made but what I like the most is the ease of delivering the survey and the immediacy with which we have the data already processed and graphed.

As the name states, this is an easy survey builder but it can be used for a lot more.

Pros: This software has a very straight forward user interface both for the admin and the end users. It is very easy to build any kind of survey with many different question types using just a few logical clicks. Each question you make can be customized in any way you could need. Since this is basically a form builder, you can use it to make all kinds of forms that don't necessarily have to be considered "surveys". The reports it generates are well laid out and it is easy to get different graphs or details out of the data you collect.

Cons: It's almost too simple. Some more customization ability regarding the look would make it better to me. It's a little too obvious you are using a SurveyMonkey form when you see one and having more brand separation would give users a more non-generic feel. No document upload feature limits the abilities but most surveys probably don't need that feature.

Overall: It really couldn't be much faster or easier to build a simple form when ever you need one with SurveyMonkey. As long as you don't need to collect something like files or payment from the end user, you can and probably should use SurveyMonkey to build your forms. It's a big time saver when you can copy older but similar surveys you often use and the interface is more intuitive than anything else I've used when building from scratch.

Pros: Setting up surveys is quick and they look good when you send them out there. If one has planned the survey well, the results can be very effective in motivating for changes in the business plan or strategy. Respondents find the surveys easy to complete quickly. The data sets that are gathered can be filtered and additional features are available for which one has to pay. Even so, when the results of the survey save the company money, one can easily justify the expenditure on R&D.

Cons: No real problems were experienced while using Survey Monkey. To stay ahead in the field, picture survey might need to be included, and also the possibility for updated feedback, or timed responses. For example if I want the respondent to be reminded to respond on a particular question again some time later, to measure a change in circumstances, it would be useful to tag a "sub survey" onto the main survey, without having to set up all the questions again in a second survey. Setting Survey monkey up to be like a "Random Comments and Criticism Help Desk" is being tested by using the original survey and submitting it to a smaller weekly group of customers, but the amount of extra effort is being outweighed by the "norm" of currently "adequate" in-house customer support function.

Excellent interface and composition.

Comments: SurveyMonkey has benefited me a lot in conducting surveys for my company, previously the opinions we received were not to our liking and since we started using SurveyMonkey, we have noticed a reasonable and excellent change to our response statistics.

Pros: What I like most about SurveyMonkey is the excellent interface it has, for a while SurveyMonkey did not have the same interface, the previous one was ugly and very unpleasant, thus causing discontent for me when conducting surveys. Since the interface was changed, I have now made progress in the comfort of my work and the surveys I do are more appropriate to the opinions I seek.

Cons: Although SurveyMonkey is an excellent software and that helps a lot in the creation of surveys, I have not yet been able to afford the high prices it has in its last memberships, I would like SurveyMonkey to reduce prices considerably, would be a very accessible advance for all.

An outstanding tool to prepare simple surveys.

Pros: The application is easy to use and helps you attain in-depth information from the audience. It's a very straightforward platform where you can just upload and edit your questions. Superb reporting feature is available where analyzing is done by graphs and charts and you can export to spreadsheets or pdf format, and also space is given for writing out detailed responses. The tool is very cost effective. There is this skip option that respondents can use for skipping questions that don't apply. You can send unlimited questionnaires by using the professional version. Great customer service and support team is another plus. You have a variety of ways to collect information from the customers like via mail, sending them a link or facebook. They autosave all your past surveys, making it easy to track those surveys. You can send follow-ups to respondents who have missed to fill up the questionnaire.

Cons: The software supports only a few languages. Including video to a survey is not as easy as other stuffs. Difficult to create complicated surveys with complex skip and quality checks. Attentions check system is not as best as those we see in some other survey apps.

Pros: We use SurveyMonkey for a lot. Any time we need to quickly poll staff or clients - we quickly create and send a SurveyMonkey. We have even built the program into our regular processes - instead of collecting forms from multiple partners or organizations, we use a repeatable SurveyMonkey.

Cons: It is hard to create a budget form on SurveyMonkey - you really can't mix it with excel too well. SurveyMonkey may have to try a little harder to compete with other form software.

Overall: SurveyMonkey simplified a lot of form collection that we used to do. It is also fairly mobile friendly. It has changed how we view and collect information, as well as how we present it. We engage clients and partners easily 2000+ times using SurveyMonkey in a given year and will continue to do so. Without it, reporting data would also be difficult. We have the gold level plan and use it for everything. It is one of the best bang for buck possible.

Comments: SurveyMonkey has benefited me a lot at the business level because I have been able to provide very good opinions for our company, I have been able to provide very well qualified and well-explained opinions that make our work status progress.

Pros: What I like the most about SurveyMonkey is the ease with which the baselines are created, so that various things can be inserted into the survey, such as videos, images and many other things that supplement the survey and make it have a result of more feasible opinion, the ease with which the surveys are created in SurveyMonkey is unmatched, has a very well formed platform that grows comfort.

Cons: The SurveyMonkey prices are very expensive, I would like SurveyMonkey to reduce the amount of money appropriate to buy the Premier plan, the last one in the list, in order to have a better and easier access to those features and the benefits that this subscription brings . I would also like SurveyMonkey to develop PC software, to get better survey control and better synchronization.

Pros: Easy-to-use | intuitive | fully web-based with no client to install | compatible with nearly every browser and ability to reach respondents even behind complex corporate security without compromising that at all.

Overall: As a sales performance improvement coach, trainer & consultant, I needed a way to automate the often tedious administrative job of sending and collecting the pre-workshop assignments that provide much-needed input to shaping the client's workshop and selecting the opportunities on which the group will work during the session.

SurveyMonkey came to the rescue 10 years ago by providing an on-line platform in which totally customised surveys could be quickly designed, deployed + monitored and followed-up easily and effectively. Clients were delighted with the information provided to them as feedback and workshop participants enjoyed comparing their own responses to those of other participants, and in large organisations, normed with other groups.

Over the years, SurveyMonkey has added numerous features and capabilities including excellent graphing and data sorting, as well as response purchase from selected target audiences. This allows for even better reporting and data presentation to clients, enhancing the value of our services to them.

Prices have indeed gone up over the years, but the overall value for money is still very good.

Recommendations to other buyers: Use the free subscription to test the platform for your specific needs.

Pros: The ability to quickly make surveys that are brand appropriate for our customers to collect information. SurveyMonkey has an integration with Hubspot which allows information to flow back into a customer's profile. The questions are simple to make as well as change out to different styles such as dropdown, star rating, fill in the blank, etc. The responses are easy to filter through once you recieve them. There are templates to use for basic surveys or you are able to create your own from scratch. I tend to create my own since we typically want speicifc wording. They make it extremely easy to share on social media as well if you are looking to get responses from a general audience or use it as a prospecting tool.

Cons: The only slightly negative thing I have to say is that it took a minute to understand who to create a survey from scratch. Invest in getting to know the product before working to create something under a timeline!

Overall: We have been able to easily put together surveys for events that offer CPE credit, contact updates for our customers, gather information for prospects, get feedback from events, and create surveys for health checks. One of the other great things we have been able to do is create a survey to send to customers before they complete a case study so the marketing department has a great understanding of the company going into the interview.

Pros: I have used SM for about 4 years now, throughout my education, for the purposes of academic research, market research, opinion polls, event organizations and during course evaluations. What I mostly like is that it is very easy to start a survey on your own from scratch, with helpful hints scattered on the page right where you can see them and auto complete functions to save you long and laborious minutes of mundane clicking and typing. For those who would like to use existing survey samples, SurveyMonkey offers a very good variety of templates for every niche field you can think of, with insights explaining the relevance of that particular template.

Once created, you can it share directly via link, via social media, via email and via social media, with even the option of QR code! As for the results, you could filter to see data trends, plot graphs, view individual answers, view summaries and suppose you could not reach the user base you wanted in numbers, for a small fee you can get more test takers off the website itself.

To conclude, here is a small survey I created in the last 30 seconds to show how easy the entire process is.

Cons: No negative comments from my side after 4 years of use, nor do I have any constructive criticism to offer.

Overall: Easy to use, intuitive for new users, comfortable for old users, wide variety of templates, auto-complete features, analyze results in different formats, find people to take your survey from the website itself and much more!

Pros: We use this software for many different things - internal and external constituent satisfaction surveys, research for new products and other areas where we want to collect anonymous information.

The surveys are very simple and intuitive to set up and contain almost unlimited ways in which to pose questions and receive feedback. Reporting is very easy and you can 'slice and dice' the data in many different ways, set up filters, export to pdf and excel quickly and easily. You can also add your own branding to the surveys, home pages etc.. to make them more customized.

I also like that you have the option to embed a link to the survey in your own communication or have the software send and track open rates for you.

Cons: We use this software quite extensively for an organization of our size (about 100 surveys every three months) and my only drawback is that it seems fairly difficult to organize and find old surveys. You can set up folders but the home screen still shows all of the surveys in a long list that you have to scroll through.

Overall: Simple to use and appreciated the discounts for non-profit users.

Pros: SurveyMonkey is easy to use for basic data collection. If you want to create and administer a quick survey that has up to 10 questions, then it will do the job for you. It's free and you can get about 100 responses at the most for the basic plan. However, if you are looking to collect more robust information from your clients or an audience, then you will need to pay for a better plan that can give you a lot more concrete data.

Cons: The free edition is so basic that it is not worth it for those of us who want to build robust surveys and collect meaningful data out of participant responses. It would be great it the basic edition had more options, such as access to logo additions and URL links without an extra added fee for what is considered to be a basic survey. The platform itself is easy to use but the functionality of moving questions up and down can be somewhat inconvenient at times.

Overall: SurveyMonkey is a great platform if you are not looking for too many free options. Overall, it is easy to use and gets the job done. I would highly recommend paying for a plan to get most out of the software. Depending on your needs, it might be worth it to pay for it.

Pros: In higher education, we are always looking for student, faculty, and alumni feedback to try to better the services we have in our facility. With SurveyMonkey, we can create multiple surveys to canvas many of our needs.

For example: set a student with a laptop and free coffee up in the lobby and ask students/faculty/staff to fill out a "building satisfaction survey." Another great use: sending a follow-up survey to clients after they have held an event in our facility. SurveyMonkey gives us great feedback either way, which we can then use in our annual reports.

SurveyMonkey makes it easy with lots of templates, so even the lesser-tech-savvy employees can get a general grasp on what's going on. The ability to alter the templates to suit specific needs is ideal.

Cons: Budget is a growing concern at our institution. Although there is a basic package, the advanced options can certainly take a chunk out of our dwindling budgets.

Although SurveyMonkey accomplishes exactly what you need it to do, more (or at least easier) integration with other programs would go a long way.

Overall: SurveyMonkey is an easy to use and easy-to-distribute way to get much needed information from our student/faculty/and staff. This information is imperative to our end-of-year reports, which then inform the college's entire strategic plan.

Pros: This software platform compared to its competitors like Qualtrics and SoGoSurvey offers a better User Interface and a smooth end-to-end product flow.

It is really simple to create surveys and assessments in this platform and distribute and generate reports based on the data collected from participants.

The overall usability is also pretty well thought off!

I would love to appreciate this tool for its simplicity and it's user-centric focus as it keeps the most important features used by the public in mind.

If you wish to purchase this, there are various packaging options too and it's a real value for money based on the features the package provides and based on your requirements.

For an Indian, I would definitely recommend this tool.

Cons: The support team is really obnoxious! There are a lot of issues noticed at times and when we try connecting with the support, we don't hear instant feedbacks or resolutions. I personally believe SoGoSurvey does a wonderful job in this regard.

Most of the features are missing as compared to its competitors making this a less preferred tool for k12 schools or other areas.

Overall: Really easy to create share and generate reports and visuals based on the data collected. A great platform to use!

Pros: SurveyMonkey's surveys are very easy to make. With a wide variety in the type of questions you can use, and the sheer number of customization options for surveys, SurveyMonkey's surveys are top notch. The survey interface itself is beautiful. It's sleek and modern, and is easy to navigate, even for first time users.

SurveyMonkey has allowed my company to receive feedback from customers, which has allowed for us to improve our customers' experience. SurveyMonkey played a large role in allowing for this improvement to happen, as it was the software we used to collect data from our customers.

Cons: There are basically no cons to SurveyMonkey. It's very easy to create new surveys, and get them out to customers. The design of the surveys are modern and clean. I recommend SurveyMonkey for any company that wants more insights into their customers.

Several user accounts.

Comments: SurveyMonkey has benefited me a lot within my company, I have been able to apply different opinions for the products we offer, thanks to this software we have known the things that our clients like and do not like.

Pros: I really like the SurveyMonkey login because you can create several user accounts for a single company, it's not like other software that only asks for the company's user name and you must be part of that team, on the other hand, surveymonkey is a very diverse software with its prices and has been able to interpret them in a good way, thus adding several work plans that complement its use.

Cons: I do not like that SurveyMonkey has very little capacity to present pre-made designs in surveys, I would like to add various designs to supplement the creativity of the person who is doing this work to help make the survey much faster and you can get effective success in the survey.

Pros: Survey Monkey offers five different subscription plans for users to select. Survey Monkey is a good way to send general inquiry forms to clients. Survey Monkey interfaces with Google and Facebook to allow users to log into accounts. Survey Monkey allows users to view responses from other users, clients, or customers. Survey Monkey provides a easy to navigate user friendly interface that allows users to build customized surveys.

Cons: Survey Monkey limits the amounts of responses that the administrator can view. Survey Monkey only allows upgrades with more features of survey. Survey Monkey offers limited customer support with the basic plan. Survey Monkey offers 10 questions per survey for the basic plan. Survey Monkey offers limited data export for such files like .csv, .pdf, .ppt, and .xls.

Overall: The benefits of using Survey Monkey include creating unlimited surveys for your clients or customers. Other benefits of using Survey Monkey include being able to select amongst four different types of plans to connect with customers. Additional benefits include 1 user per account to comment or use collaboration tools. More benefits include survey analysis of the surveys submitted as an administrator. Overall, Survey Monkey is a good tool to use to offer customer feedback for your business.

Comments: The use of SurveyMonkey has benefited me in my company because I have managed to create many surveys with different designs or with designs that I can design myself, it is very easy to manage this platform and it generates very good reliability in the answers.

Pros: What I like most about SurveyMonkey is that you can create several collectors for the same survey, for example, one custom for a group of clients, and another general, to hang on the web. It allows to adjust the degree of confidentiality of the answers, being able to register, or not, the origin of each answer.

Cons: I do not like that it works with nominal users, which allows to open several sessions with the same user at the same time, which is very useful. It has 3 basic modules: design, collect and analyze, this is a serious problem because when changing the password, all people are disabled from using the program.

Pros: Just the simplicity of getting actual feedback from just about any size group about a wide range of topics, using a pretty huge array of question types is an amazing aid to decision making. The graphical reports of data are also a major time savings in many cases.

Cons: There are some statistical and data science bad habits that SurveyMonkey enshrines. For instance, the 1-2 coding of yes-no questions is kind of silly when the obvious way to handle it would be 0 for no and 1 for yes. We generally end up converting reports in Excel to show that. Also, the ambiguity in numeric exports of Likert scales as to which is the top end of the scale is a little annoying. Many times I have inadvertently built a question such that 5 turns out being worse than 1; it would help if SurveyMonkey kept me from making that mistake. Also, the constant use of average Likert scores has made people forget how statistically illegitimate that practice really is. You can't average categorical data meaningfully because a 1 isn't 1/5th as good as a 5. But that just goes to the naive use of what is a pretty powerful tool. Maybe SurveyMonkey should offer some guidance on how to use stats without deceiving people.

Overall: While some exports require substantial cleaning, there is still no getting around the huge value added by being able to survey people on a simple, intuitive platform like this. It's an invaluable tool, if an imperfect one.

Pros: I like that there are some ready made templates available if you are in a hurry. I also like that I can create my own survey from scratch by customizing what questions I want to ask and the format for those questions. New surveys are very simple to create because the program walks you through the steps. The program also allows you to add a logo to your survey to make it more professional looking. It automatically inserts our logo when I begin a new survey.

Cons: When setting up a question, the screen can be pretty cluttered with all of the choices you need to make. You type your question, then you have to select the format for your answer, and then you need to either type in your multiple choice answers or provide whatever is needed for someone to answer your question. When I first started using Survey Monkey, it was a little tricky to maneuver around all of the items on the screen.

Overall: This software has a free version that works fine for my needs, so that is a huge benefit. It creates a very nice, professional looking survey, which is very important.

Pros: The overall flow from creating a survey to distributing and sharing it with others and obtaining responses and analyzing results based on the data obtained is pretty simple as compared to other competitors. The overall user experience and usability is 4 out of 5 and the UI is 3.5 out of 5.

We are using SurveyMonkey for the last few years and how found it useful only because of the pricing, being the biggest advantage over other competitors.

It generates decent visuals to represent the overall data collected, in different formats efficiently.

Cons: The overall quality of this software is ordinary and not that feature-packed as compared to other competitors especially SoGoSurvey and other top notch companies.

It provides a decent user interface but the enhancements and overall flow is very difficult to understand.

The support team is very poor in responding and does not give impromptu replies (have waited more than a day to hear back from them).

SurveyMonkey evaluates each positive and negative opinion.

Comments: It has benefited me because I have managed to control much more what the client wants to tell me, now in my company we have managed to please the client with what he asks and we have analyzed each opinion to improve day by day.

Pros: SurveyMonkey is one of the best powers in surveys, and what I like most about this platform is basically the platform as such, the design that is currently offering clients and the major commercial powers, better valued survey design and features that encourage you to complete a survey.

Cons: The problem is that SurveyMonkey should exponentially lower prices so that customers see a buying opportunity, prices are very important and surveymonkey is not seeing that, every day new users are lost for such high prices.

Pros: This project streamlined efforts of administrative staff; each survey required 30+ minutes to manually process a results report, now the process is automated. Improved response time to client from 3-5 days to 15 minutes. The SurveyMonkey team gave great assistance during the build phase. Their software plays well with others. I highly recommend SurveyMonkey. fyi...this project uses SurveyMonkey, Zapier, and WebMerge and has been live since Dec 2016. We've used SurveyMonkey as standalone product for about 5 years.

We set up surveys on Survey Monkey about 5 times a month.

Pros: Survey Monkey can be a free account, however because we want full customization and to use it for multiple clients, we have a paid account. The charge for an account is minimal, and worth every penny. We get full customization of each survey, the user interface is incredible easy, and surveys are so streamlined. The best part is they provide tracking/reporting metrics on each survey that is significantly better than survey software that is much more expensive.

Cons: We oftentimes add a gift card as a "carrot" for filling out the survey. Survey monkey has not streamlined the process of issuing a gift card with the survey, so we have to send it out manually. For smaller surveys that works fine, but for much larger surveys we have to use a different system because manual gift cards is not a cost-effective option.

Overall: Ease of use and functionality. Customization and tracking/reporting.

Pros: Survey monkey is great. We use this frequently. Quick and easy surveys over a project to a group of staff to get an honest opinion in a number of situations. We use it to eliminate hurt feelings among stakeholders. It has many uses and features but most importantly it's easy to use and the results are sinple and straight forward.

Cons: What's not to like? I can't think of a negitive. It doesn't have tons of bells and whistle's is the only reason I didn't give it five stars but that is in no way negative. This isn't some advanced technology, it's a fast way to get a public or group opinion and keep it anonymous.

Overall: My business uses it to gauge success of projects, direction of projects, quality of contributors in a discreet and anonymous way that doesn't point anyone out or critique specific ideas in front of the group. This has kept down office drama but kept managers in the loop as the true progress. We've also used it for other things unrelated. Highly recommend

Pros: I have used both the free and banded version of creating Survey Monkey Surveys and it has always fulfilled my expectations.

Creating a survey is quick and easy here and you will be done with a great survey form in minutes for your employees, generic market research, study, etc.

It has the option of response triggered questions which means an extra question might show up or not depending on what the user answered in the previous question.

Survey Monkey also allows you to use to your own HTML creatives.

The survey results are easy to read and pretty intuitive.

I have used their online response team and found them quick and helpful.

Cons: I would love to have an easier way to export/download the data/results to be able to present it in my own way.

Overall: My overall experience with SurveyMonkey has been good and i think its great for start ups and individuals to so their surveys/studies free of cost.

Comments: Despite the poor support that has the user, has provided good benefits in my company due to the functions implemented in the area of surveys, this way has achieved different results than the previous ones and with more valuable opinions.

Pros: I like SurveyMonkey mostly because of the interface that it uses with the client, and it is a comfortable interface where each section of the survey can be organized, any type of content can be organized and made more prominent.

Cons: The problem with SurveyMonkey is the way in which the client is treated, in many occasions I have contacted the support of this platform, and they have given me bad answers or they have told me anything else that does not answer what I ask.

Pros: This app works similarly to other survey platforms. You create, send, and analyze data from surveys. This one in particular was the first one I have used.

I don't use it too much to justify paying a monthly subscription, so the fact that there is a free version is absolutely critical.

The ease of use is probably this app's strongest pro. Whether viewing data collected from responses on a particular survey, or changing a question from fill in the blank to multiple choice, this app is seemless.

Cons: As I stated before, there are loads of these types of apps out there. While Survey Monkey still ranks highly on that list, it falls victim to competition. Google Forms allows users to do much of the same things at a similar ease-all of this for free. If Survey Monkey wants to compete in this market, they need to offer something that their competitors cannot.

Personally, I find the UI to be a little bland. Google forms has a similar issue. One way Survey Monkey could improve their product is by creating a more visually appealing user interface and visually appealing surveys. This is a huge need.

Overall: I enjoy creating these surveys. They're so easy to use, it actually makes you feel smart using it.

Comments: I have benefited from the use that I give to SurveyMonkey today because I have noticed that the opinions I receive every day about my company, are 'real, are more valid opinions that are worth taking into account.

Pros: I like SurveyMonkey because I have seen that its functions are quite easy to use, and each person has an easy adaptation when using the functions that it presents, I had never felt an ease like this, since I had always used pollsters who had some difficulty to use it.

Cons: I do not like that SurveyMonkey has the bad way to present the application for mobile phones, since in that App, similarly it looks like it is on a desk, and this is annoying because it is disorganized.

Comments: SurveyMonkey has benefited me within my company because I have noticed that the features it provides have helped the products we offer take more life, and in this way, know what customers like.

Pros: The best thing about SurveyMonkey is that it has a very basic design but at the same time, it supplements the comfort of the client, providing colors that in a certain perspective, benefits the client in the long term so that the stay does not become boring.

Cons: The detail that I do not like about SurveyMonkey is poor customer service, it takes approximately 48 hours to answer the customer's question and this is really annoying because the question is not answered immediately.

SurveyMonkey provides excellent progress simply with a good interface.

Comments: SurveyMonkey is a software that is designed to produce and innovate, currently in my company, there are many benefits it has brought, such as a better organization through surveys, a better connection with the consumer to know what they like and what they do not like.

Pros: There are several features that I get the attention of SurveyMonkey, but in spice, there is one that has definitely made me choose it, and it is the interface, it is a very clean interface, with good colors that improve comfort.

Cons: I have no complaints about SurveyMonkey, the truth is that this software has left me impacted with the excellent results and the measures it takes to innovate in the creation of surveys.

Pros: I love all of the options available for response types (multiple choice, checklist, rating, etc.). You can create almost any type of question/answer you want. A tool that I recently used and fell in love with is the comment feature. I often create surveys for other people in my department and I always had to send them a test and have them respond via email with their feedback. But this feature enables them to leave comments on a specific question in the survey so I'll know exactly what question they have an edit, comment, or concern for.

Cons: I have to say that survey monkey is a little bit confusing when you first start to use it. I was lucky because I came to a job where everyone had already been using it and I didn't have to start creating surveys from scratch. I was able to copy their old surveys and start with that so, I saw all of the response options they previously used. If it weren't for that, it would have taken me much longer to understand how to put a survey together. The editing area really should be a bit cleaner and easier to navigate. We probably would have spent more money on a more premium version (we don't have basic, but we don't have the most premium version either). However, we chose not to because we're already having a hard time understanding the features we have now.

Pros: This software offers many useful features that others lack.

One of the best is the fact that you can publish a given survey on different approaches such as e-mail or Facebook at the same time and then be able to compare the results obtained from one line and the other.

In my opinion, one of the best things that the tool offers is that you can also export the results as Excel files, a feature that comes really helpful when you are using multiple channels and wish to compare their outputs.

They can also offer, as an extra service, the possibility to specify a target for your surveys if you don't have the necessary data. They are able to provide this for you so you can target a given audience of your convenience. You pay this service on a completed survey basis.

Cons: On the downside, the interface is not very user-friendly and there are other tools out there, such as Typeform, that have a more intuitive interface.

Pros: I love the ability to customize each and every single survey to minute details. I have spent over 10 hours on creating a single survey for my company. I used this to create a quarterly survey for my employees that correlated with their pay raise. I have also spent no more than 2 minutes to create a quick anonymous survey for my friends. There is so much you can do with Survey Monkey.

Cons: I would love to see more custom settings for the analysis. Before we present the analytics, it would be nice to be able to customize fonts, colors, sizing, format, etc. This is a personal preference and not a huge need, but it would be fun for some business owners like me who enjoy creating things in detail.

Overall: SurveyMonkey is a great tool for companies to use if they need answers or opinions. My employees like it because it gives them a choice to be kept anonymous.

Pros: You want multiple pages to your survey? Check. Want different types of questions on your form? Check. Want to make sure that those pages or certain questions only show up conditionally based on previous answers? Check. SurveyMonkey makes it easy to see your options for form/survey building easily, and their support resources are great for anyone to get started right away if intuition alone isn't good enough (which it is).

Cons: Some features are over simplified, but if you dig around enough, you'll find that you can customize some advanced settings in interesting ways. This software seems to focus on making options as easy to understand as possible, so as long as you recognize that advanced features are hidden a level deeper than is convenient (for the sake of not scaring off the less technically-savvy), you should be perfectly fine with using Survey Monkey.

Overall: This has been an easy option for survey and forms when working with a team of various skill levels.

Pros: If you're a part of Marketing, Sales, Research, Customer Service or any department that relies on Information gathering to better your System or to better serve your Customers, Surveys are the key and secret weapon on any successful Businesses. Survey Monkey is your friend when it comes to knowing what you truly need to know to improve your Product or Service.

Survey Monkey has a Free Subscription and it has great features already! So, it's really worth the investment for the paid Subscriptions. Do you need to analyze the responses of your Survey in more Visual way? Survey Monkey got you, customize all you want to analyze the Data to meet your needs.

Cons: Although SurveyMonkey has amazing features on its Free Version, it's still limited. And they have a Paid Version and if you want to learn more about your Customers deeper, I suggest you can upgrade your plan. Free Version has a lot of restriction.

Pros: When I need to collect data, Survey Monkey is an easy-to-use, free platform that allows me to ask a variety of questions, use logic to skip or ask additional questions, and see all my survey responses in the same place. I have used both the free and paid versions for different purposes.

Cons: Sometimes the answers I want to gather are too convoluted for Survey Monkey to handle - although that may be a failing of my question writing and not SM! My main complaint, though, is with the way the responses are exported into a CSV or Excel file. The answer display is great on the website itself, but if I wanted to download and manipulate the data myself, or integrate it with other survey questions or other data that I've gathered, there's a lot of cleanup that I have to do with the Excel file before I can even use that data.

Pros: Survey monkey only comes to mind when I'm backed into a corner or a project has been thrown at me and I know I need something quick. That's not to say it's a bad tool, I just know there's reliability in terms of the functionality and layout. I know I can build a very straightforward questionnaire with a lot of the bells and whistles without too much effort. I've enjoyed reading the results and some of the visualizations are actually alright (overdue for an upgrade).

Cons: I would love a wordpress plugin that works with weighting different answers alongside a per survey price. I realize you guys can't do a per survey price but that would be life changing for the way I would run user surveys and potentially social based quizes. I've used some terrible software instead and obviously paid the price.

Pros: Such a quick tool to create interactive surveys, used most recently with a STEM team I coached (First Lego League) to give teammates quick reviews of concepts as interactive multiple-choice surveys. The interface is very quick, easy to use... and even with the free version, having limited amounts of questions per survey, it was very useful for quick surveys and interactive "quizzes." with scoring!

Cons: With longer formats of 10 questions and headings, the scrolling can be a little cumbersome - inserting a heading or a question within some already formatted pieces can be hard to keep track - moving something up or down in the list. But it's a small price to pay for such flexibility and ease of creation overall.

Overall: Immediate usefulness- no learning curve... quick surveys in minutes.

Pros: - it's very easy to develop a survey - there is a good bank of survey questions to choose from when developing your survey - nice design templates you can choose from - lots of question types (i.e. rating scales, multiple choice, etc.) - you can set it so that if a respondent answers a question a certain way, they will jump to another question (i.e. if "yes" go to question 2, if "no", skip to question 5) - you can easily sort through and analyze the results - there are settings so responses can be made anonymous - there are settings for when the survey will open and close so will happen automatically - very inexpensive

Cons: I don't think there is anything that I have found especially lacking especially given the price to use the product. It has done everything I've needed it to do.

Pros: I love using Survey Monkey at my office. It has helped me save time making all kinds of decisions from where and what to have at an office celebration, to what kind of training staff needs the most. You ask the questions ONE TIME and Survey Monkey does the rest. All of the data is sorted and totaled (if applicable) and it's all there in front of you. So much more efficient than a 30-60 minute meeting!

Cons: The thing I like least about the software is having to remind people to check their email because there is a survey in there that I need them to take. I wish there was a reminder function that would alert recipients that there is a survey that needs their attention.

Overall: It really helps me save time when I want to get input from my staff that really does not require a meeting.

Pros: The most productive features of SurveyMonkey are the following: - Survey interface that really encourages you to complete each of them. - Interface of the platform with a current and very revealing design that supplements the comfort. - Provides stability in the questionnaires and their results.

Cons: The only complaint I would have is regarding the SurveyMonkey prices, I think it is outrageous that this platform has prices per month, I think that prices are the main factor for the customer to have absolute comfort, they should be lowered to fully satisfy people.
