FREE Alternative To SurveyMonkey

As most learning professionals know, an effective training initiative needs meaningful measurables, and one of the easiest ways to capture these metrics is by one of the many survey sites available today.  One of the leading players in this field is SurveyMonkey, a easy to use SaaS that enables you to create and track surveys to your heart’s content.

However, despite SurveyMonkey’s benefits, their free plan is, well, limiting. 

If you are looking for something that is robust like SurveyMonkey but doesn’t carry the pricetag, then try the free alternative to SurveyMonkey: LimeSurvey.

LimeSurvey has a laundry list of features, and all for the perfect price ($0 :)), so you will have no problem creating a survey to meet your training needs.

  1. Hi Justin,

    LimeSurvey is a great tool, especially with consideration to the features. The downside of course, is that it’s a bit cumbersome to use to quickly and easily create a goodlooking survey.

    We have been working on a project that I’m sure you readers will love:

    We have given all the really cool features such as branding, all question types away on the life time free package (unlike Survey Monkey and the bigger players).

    May be worth a mention 🙂

    Have an awesome day!

      Sadly it looks like the free option on SuperSimpleSurvey has a lot of limits, like only 3 surveys, only 10 questions, only 50 responses etc… Sorry but I disagree to that being a totally free alternative.

      LimeSurvey is actually, totally free, as Justin states.

      Really? When someone says, “Free alternative to x”, you shouldn’t provide a link to a MORE expensive option.

      If I had to choose between SurveyMonkey and SuperSimpleSurvey, if I didn’t have a budget, I’d choose SurveyMonkey.

      If however I wasn’t being an idoit, I’d actually choose google forms. Actually free, simple, and while not super pretty gives you all the features you need without ever asking for a dime.
