Survey Monkey is one of the most popular tools to create surveys, publish survey, conduct survey and finally even record the participants feedback and analyze the results.
I have tried many tools in the market for the user survey but i feel survey monkey is better in many ways. Let us try to see how survey monkey works.
Survey Monkey is my personal favorite
Components in survey monkey: Survey monkey has basically 3 important sections that once mastered will help you to create and manage user surveys.
1. Design: this section helps in designing of the survey which will be posted to the participants
2. Collect: this section will help in collecting the responses
3. Analyze: this section helps in the analysis of the responses and prepare the survey report.
Account type: In most cases a free account will help you to create, collect and analyze the results. In free account there is restriction for download of the reports.Based on the requirements go ahead and sign up. In most cases i think you can easily work with free account, in case you need higher reporting capability then go for the paid options.
Big Step 1: Creation of a new survey
Creation of new survey is as easy as 1 2 3… see the below image for illustration.
Adding Questions: You can easily add questions, notice the default section that will be shown to you and the “Add Question here” button.
Themes: there are some color full themes that you can use to change the look of the survey questionnaire. See the above yellow color and the green themes.
Once you click on “Add question here” the below overlay will be shown to the user
You can select the type of question and frame your answers. This window allows the users to have questions of the following types
In this way you go on and create the questions. Once you log in the application it is pretty much easy to work with it.
Big Step 2: Collect responses
In this section the user publishes the survey to the users. There are 3 ways in which the responses can be collected. The 3 ways are shown below
Big Step 3 : Analyze results
Once the survey is send to the participants, there responses are collected and the analyzed. For collection we need not worry as Survey monkey has built in tool to collect the responses. The survey results are collected on a auto pilot and you can go forward and analyze the results.
Each questions answers are calculated and based on the responses a graph is created which can be shared with the customers.
Now see how cool it is to use Survey monkey. I would suggest instead of using pen and papers for survey go forward and use online tools this will make the survey easy to manage and in one sense makes the process eco friendly – Go green with Survey Monkey.
