Survey / questionnaire solutions
« on: February 10, 2011, 11:18:52 AM »
Looking for a fast way of getting a vaguelly presentable survey online.  Must be multi-page and support survey lengths over 100 questions.  Must be affordable and pretty quick to set-up.  Not wanting much am I?

Can anyone suggest one that they use, meets the criteria above and isn't utter crap?

Thanks.

I ran LimeSurvey for a customer service survey several years ago. It's open source, so the price is right. The default templates out of the box are quite plain, but it handles an unlimited number of questions. It's a bit crap, but not utter crap.

Cheers bill.  I'll check that out.

I went with fluidsurveys.com in the end.  More of an interrim measure than a final solution.  Pretty good system and the price wasn't bad.  More importantly they weren't treating paid surveys as advertising opportunities for themselves, limiting it to a small credit link that I can live with.  Not a bad solution, but opensource has appeal so I will definitely checkout lime.

Never used they guys, but they sprang to mind from somewhere:

My problem with surveymonkey is that, even on paid options, they plaster their branding over it.  Fair enough on freebie accounts, but seems OTT when you are paying.

Just got an amazon one using this:

They say you can set them up for free, but not looked into it.
