Customised themes

How to get started:

Step 1: Visit
Step 2: Click ‘Join now for free!
Step 3: Complete form to register and click create a new account

Start creating your free online survey – it is easy to use!

There are 15 different types of question formats to choose from including multiple choice and rating scales. SurveyMonkey provides examples of the question types.

The only disadvantages of the basic account (free) is that it does not allow any customisation as the Monthly or Annual subscriptions do, for example, you can’t add a company logo.

You do not have to subscribe straight away – you can upgrade from the free basic account at any time.

After you have created your suvey, send it to those taking part:
Click on My Surveys
Click the ‘Collect’ icon
‘Add New Collector’
‘Create a link to send in your own email message or to place on a webpage’
Copy and paste the link into an email and send to those taking part.

When surveys are completed, the results can be viewed in the Analyze section of My Surveys.
