Here’s a fairly complete list of survey building tools currently available. I’ve included their URLs and some basic comments.
When I went through this list, I was looking for survey tools that met my specific criteria:
- Offer a free account option, not just a free trial.
- Allow unlimited surveys.
- Allow unlimited access to the results.
- Be easy to use and offer little cause for frustration.
The companies with an * met this criteria; you can see a more thorough review of them here.
