PopSurvey is a survey creation tool that helps users build eye-catching, functional surveys. The user can select from a variety of survey templates, including speaker feedback, newsletter subscription, team member feedback, job interview and customer satisfaction surveys. Formats range from basic check boxes to colorful smiley faces that allow the survey taker to quickly choose their response. Templates are sorted by category, including product development, customer support, human resources and event surveys. The user can view and interact with the template option prior to using it. The application uses a survey player rather than a long form to make the experience more pleasant. The user can apply background images to go along with their surveys. The survey taker can see how many questions remain as they work through the survey player.
PopSurvey hasn’t received much attention on the web. The application appeared in 2011, founded by CEO Josh Pigford and Advisors Siamak Taghaddos and David Hauser. The application was intended to make surveys more interesting and entertaining to increase the response rate for the user. The current version includes a number of stylish options that allow the user to customize the survey taking experience. The application offers a more visually appealing alternative to the standard form survey.
PopSurvey does the same thing that other survey building applications do, with one main difference. The application allows the user to create a beautiful, smooth and streamlined survey interface that will entice others to respond. Rather than working through a plain form, the user jumps from one screen to the next on a graceful player. The user can customize the survey visually and add questions that suit their needs.
The look of PopSurvey is one of the strongest characteristics the application possesses. The survey taker utilizes a player which shows each question in a box on top of a background image. The responses look far more modern than a plain form with data entry fiends and dropdown boxes. The user can apply simple check boxes, colorful smiley faces, radio buttons and comments fields. The survey pages slide by as the taker works through each question.
A new user can get started by clicking the pink “Sign Up for Free” arrow button along the right side of the PopSurvey homepage. The registration form on the following page asks for a first and last name, email address and password. After completing the form and submitting it, the user is automatically logged in and can begin building surveys and exploring template options.
New users are automatically given a basic plan which costs nothing and includes access for one user, two surveys and up to 100 survey responses per month. Three paid memberships are also available. The Plus plan costs $12 per month and includes up to five surveys, 1,000 monthly responses and access for two users as well as premium background images. The Premium plan costs $24 per month and includes unlimited surveys, up to 10,000 responses per month, access for four users, custom thank you slides and embedding options. The Max plan costs $48 per month and includes unlimited monthly responses and unlimited users.
PopSurvey is a valuable resource for anyone that needs to build a functional survey. The application is very easy to use and includes just enough customization options to give the user what they need without becoming overwhelming. The appearance and style of the application is preferable to the many alternative survey builders available on the web today. Users can also choose between one free or three paid membership plans that meet just about any budget.
