Have you tried Survey Monkey yet as a means to gather information? The company came up in discussion at the recent Akron Bloggers meeting and one of the participants said that she had hesitated using it because the name of the company sounded . Wrong animal – it is a monkey, not a mouse. hahahaha. Okay, moving on.
I recently have received a couple surveys from companies, primarily educational institutes, looking for feedback from participants that have attended a seminar. From a user perspective, the process was simple and I really liked the little bar across the bottom of each question that lets you know how far you are through the survey.
One of my customers, Don Philabaum of Internet Strategies Group is putting the finishing touches on his next book entitled: Web 2.0 Customer Engagement, Amplifying Word of Mouth & Buzz Marketing using Online Community, Social Networking and Social Media Tools and is using Survey Monkey to gather informational stories for his book.
He's looking for anecdotal information from people who have had experiences with Internet Marketing. He'll be putting 20 of the stories in his book. So if you participate – it's free advertising in his book!
If you are interested in more information or would like to participate in his survey, click here.
If you are looking to gather information for your company; either recapping an event, soliciting ideas for new services, etc – Survey Monkey appears to be an easy, affordable way to go. In fact you can try it for free. You can survey 100 people with 10 questions and it's free.
Has anyone tried it yet? What did you think?
