    Another alternative survey tool is Rational Survey. They have a free version that has a lot of these competitors beat.

    You might add

    It’s like eSurveysPro with unlimited surveys, questions and responses.
    The only differences is
    that there are fewer question types and downloading/exporting responses IS available. Also your survey will not have ads in it.

    Furthermore obsurvey is very very easy and fast to use.

    I’m the creator of obsurvey.

    SurveyGizmo is not free. Cheapest is about $20/month for a personal account. There is a 14-day free trial only. It shouldn’t really be on this list.

    For your consideration: The Survey Project is a group of inspired volunteers willing to spend time and make an effort to create free survey software and share creative experiences along the way.

    I wanted to add to this list of survey tools. Mobosurvey helps you quickly create online surveys that are accessible from any internet capable devices. Your users can access the same survey from their smart phones, tablets, laptops, or desktops at anytime.

    Do you know any survey tools (free or paid) that allow you to create matrix-style questions with numeric data entries and a running total at the bottom of each column not pre-determined by the creator but based on user entries?

  9. Rik says:

    Another free tool you could consider is NETQ ( It’s very easy to use, advanced and has a good reporting section.

    Also, you can make use of loads of templates that you can easily modify.

    Try Eval and GO, we offer you a variety of survey tools including cross tabulations, matrix style questions and so much more. Visit 100% online, no software download.

  11. kage says: is my new fave. Amazing every few months the entire landscape of the internet market changes. If you want free tools for making surveys of any length or size, just as easy to link to facebook, twitter, etc. And the results and demographics download right into excel. This one is up and coming and lets you use free cool tools — what a lot of the others hold back for their premium subscriptions. SurveyBuilder doesn’t have fees or monthly subscription rates.

    I researched several different online surveys. is by far the best, and it’s FREE!

  13. francis says:

    I am looking for a survey tool that i can run on my own website and which allows me to set up, manage and run many custom surveys simultaneously on behalf of clients. I need a simple suite of tools for respondent emailing, reminders etc and i want to be able to store responses on a database.

    what do the experts suggest?
