And completing would give you typically anywhere between 0.5-2. All surveys initially start with a few boring routine questions, which make you pissed off.

PS

PRAVEEN S.

The company's take on my dilemma was - "Pay for it" and you'll get the information you need. In my opinion they shouldn't bother having a free version of this software if it functions that poorly.

There should be more protection factors when approving registrations and preventing fraud.

Powerful, easy to use surveys

Reviewed 2 years ago

Collecting customer feedback, or employee surveys is quick and easy and sharing the insights with the team is also a snap. It does exactly what it needs to.

Pros

We use survey monkey a few times a year. Their reporting functions are great and make it easy to share the results with the team. Building and sharing the surveys is simple as well. Really, it does everything that is says on the tin and doesn't make it too complicated. Well worth using if you need to collect some feedback

Cons

Visually, it could be nicer. When looking at it next to Typeform, for instance, it starts to look a little outdated.

SurveyMonkey

One of the best survey creation software

Reviewed 3 years ago
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.

Does exactly what you need from a survey software

Reviewed 8 months ago

As a Service Designer, conducting user research is a key part of my job, and this includes surveys. I haven't yet settled on one provider I prefer to do this.

Pros

Easy to set up surveys, share and get feedback, and then extract the results at the end to manage as I please.

Cons

On the survey taker end, even though there is some personalization of the interface available, it looks a bit outdated (compared to TypeForm, which is a little more fun)

Powerful and ubiquitous

Reviewed 2 years ago

Great for analyzing people's responses with a powerful dashboard. It's my second favourite.

Pros

It's got some great features, all sorts of kind of questions, a nice UI and great result analysis tools. Way better than Google Forms, as it's more customizable.

Cons

The UI is nice but could be better (and perhaps more customizable); perhaps they could learn a bit from Typeform. Also, I honestly think it's a bit too pricey.

SurveyMonkey

Good, but visually unappealing

Reviewed 2 years ago

As a communications professional, Survey Monkey has come in handy many times for sourcing feedback and input from my team and colleagues. It allows you to build relatively complex surveys that skip time consuming conversations and meetings, and lets people feel involved in projects via feedback surveys.

Pros

Survey monkey makes it quick and relatively easy to collect info from the people in your organization, and your wider supporters. Compared to some of the other options out there, survey monkey has more features readily available, and at lower price points. This allows you to make some more logically complex surveys, which can be useful in collecting more accurate information.

Cons

Compared to other options (like Typeform) Survey Monkey really lags behind in the visual design department. With the proliferation of things like Canva, Typeform, SquareSpace, etc - services that put aesthetics at the forefront - there's really no excuse to not have a greater focus on how the surveys look. It's not a huge drawback, because the data collection is good, but from a user experience side the visuals just aren't as nice as other options.

Solid, reliable online survey tool

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

It's a trusted, long-time veteran of this space, designing a survey on this site is intuitive and straightforward. Offers useful features like logic for more complex questionnaires. Complex enough to handle both student projects and more complicated corporate survey efforts.

Cons

If you need mobile-friendly forms (i.e. if you expect participants to mostly complete the form via mobile device), I would be tempted to use a specialty platform like Typeform instead.

Easiest survey product on the market

Reviewed a year ago

Overall this is a great product and the easiest and most intuitive to use on the market. Although it may be the easiest, it may not be the best. Better end user experience TypeForm. Better ease of use and analytics: SurveyMonkey.

Pros

So easy to use, and track results. Create a survey in a matter of minutes and get informative insights from those who complete the survey. The system is well organized and analytics are easy to find and analyze.

Cons

Not as engaging user experience as some others on the market (TypeForm). Customers who fill out a lot of the same survey may be turned off by a lack of creativity SurveyMonkey offers.

Powerful online survey and forms platform

Reviewed 2 years ago

SurveyMonkey provides businesses with everything I need to collect data from customers and leads, with an industry-leading number of integrations and a well-designed dashboard.

Pros

Survey Monkey's user interface is a model of transparency and ease of use. The dashboard incorporates onboarding, knowledge sharing, and easy access to user surveys. It looks good; it works well. I found the HootSuite integration to be particularly helpful and interesting.

Cons

SurveyMonkey seems to be missing an opportunity here by not offering conversational forms and competing directly with TypeForm. The free plan is kind of useless, especially compared to Google Forms. Unlimited surveys don't mean much if you can't do anything with the data.

Easy to use, lots of functionality

Reviewed 3 years ago

We use this and it is affordable for our company and achieves our survey-taking goals!

Pros

SurveyMonkey was the best of its kind from the beginning and it has continuously grown over the years. I have used this software for many years (and even trained people on how to use it) and it has stayed ahead of the survey game for a very long time. I think it's main competitor is TypeForm right now and it is doing a great job.

Cons

I think the creation or "design" area of the interface has become a bit clunky while it tries to anticipate what kind of question you are choosing, but that is pretty minor. I do miss the old over-simplified interface with three sections - DESIGN, COLLECT, and SHARE. (Or something like that!) It's a little less obvious at a glance, but still overall a very easy software.

Survey tool on steroids

Reviewed 2 years ago

It helped us make use of surveys, which other tools weren't capable of.

Pros

Typeform can be used in various ways, but I mostly use it as a survey tool. What's amazing about the survey tool is that it allows to save the data from the surveyed person as an "attribute", which then can be exported via Zapier to other tools, such as DMPs. Once the survey data is saved in a DMP it can then be further used to re-target or for other purposes.

Cons

Overall pretty intuitive, but design templates lack in my opinion. More templates would allow to become more mass appeal of this product. Surveymonkey and others still are more basic tools, but therefore attract a bigger audience.

Easy to use, attractive interface, well worth any marketer's time.

Reviewed 4 years ago

We can create a more interactive experience for our site visitors and gather information with ease.

Pros

Typeform is very, very easy to use. We don't need help from the design team to make good-looking surveys and forms. I like that we can embed the tool right into our existing landing pages, rather than sending them to an external site so we can control the user experience 100%. I also really like the personalized aspect of it, where we can pull in the user's answers for later questions - that is something that we've found lacking in other, more expensive software systems of a similar type. And it's very cost-effective which is the cherry on top.

Cons

I don't love the 'results' view. I would really like to see more data analysis features/aggregated results rather than having them all listed individually. There is the option to export to Excel and do it yourself, but I'd really be happiest to have analytics tools (like in SurveyMonkey) right in the browser and easily usable/accessible.

Simple. Fast.

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

* Typeform forms are SO. FAST. to create. * The ability to personalize forms. Collect info like user name, then use that same information later on in the form. * Logic and branching. * We've used Typeform to create light surveys -- while the analytic tools aren't nearly as robust as, say, SurveyMonkey or Qualtrics, it does provide for a smooth, enjoyable experience for those answering the questions. * We haven't used this feature yet, but the ability to embed a rating-scale question right into an email is pretty sweet. * The graphical display of answers to questions is very useful. We've used this feature to create instant polls and it's worked like a charm.

Cons

* It's always very easy to tell when I'm using a form that was created with Typeform. More visual customization options, please! * I wish the calculator function was a little more robust.

Free plan is awesome!

Reviewed 8 years ago

I had been a SurveyMonkey user, but I happily made the switch to Typefrom when I saw its free version offers no restrictions. Plus, you can design really nice-looking forms with it! And there are other small things that make the difference. For example, whereas the end screen of forms made in SM is a hard selling page for them (this annoyed me a lot), in Typeform they're fully customizable (colors, text, images, social icons... and even a CTA button whose text and hyperlink you can edit). The forms you build do have have some "powered by" branding, but it's MUCH more subtle.

Pros

Design & branding flexibility, mobile experience, free plan is unlimited

Cons

Multiple choice questions options - you can set "choose as many as you want" or just "choose just one option" but you can't set "choose X options". They'll fix this soon though (the founder himself answered to my support ticket, how awesome is that?)

Disappointed; significant number of results lost

Reviewed 7 years ago

Typeform don't make it obvious, but they do NOT store partial or incomplete results. In my survey over 120 people started the survey, only 55 completed it. Partial responses would still have been hugely valuable to me, but they're not available with Typeform. They ARE available with SurveyMonkey. I wrote to TypeForm with feedback. Their response "About the issue with not-saved responses, it's the kind of confusion we try to avoid, asking users to test carefully their typeforms before using them..... we are not looking to implement this feature in the near future" So a warning to people: If any response (partial or full) is valuable to you in a survey, please be aware that TypeForm doesn't store the results until the final page where the person clicks "Submit".

Pros

Beautiful looking surveys, easy to setup, fantastic analysis tools.

Cons

Doesn't save partial responses. Some concern, as 3 seperate people reported not being able to submit at the end.

Vendor response

Hi there, Thank you for your feedback. There is an issue around the legality (and morality) about storing answers a respondent gives before submitting. In paginated surveys such as those built with SM, the respondent needs to click on a "Next" button to go to the next page of questions. And in case the survey only has one page and the respondent does not click "Done", SM does not save the answers...
