SurveyMonkey Rocks, Plus It’s Super-Easy

SurveyMonkeyYesterday I was in a pinch. Thank the web diva heavens for SurveyMonkey.

Weeks ago I promised to compose an online survey for my church’s Stewardship Committee, but then in the holiday hustle-bustle, not to mention being absent-minded, I forgot all about it.

Last night at 2:00AM the jig was up. I sat down and, with some trepidation, signed up for an account. It turns out that even getting an account is a breeze. You just give them your email address, pick a handle for yourself, and you’re in. Of course, it’s a limited account. You need to pay for bigger projects. But limited (under 100 respondents and under 10 questions) was good enough for our needs.

Next, you add your questions using an intuitive dialog box, and then choose your venue. I selected being assigned a URL to distribute in emails and to link to from our site.

Now all we have to do is distribute said URL. Once responses come in, there’s a handsome and presumably revealing results analysis cumulated for you.

My web diva tool chest just got noticeably richer. And I suspect paying for a larger account would be money well spent.

  1. Tried out Survey Monkey last year when we needed to conduct surveys for our Air Force base web site, and was VERY impressed with how easy it was to use. Great program, and you can’t beat free for a smallish survey!

    P.S.
    Just stumbled on your site today and have been reading many, many of your posts. I am blown away by your knowledge. You’re now firmly planted on my favorites list!
