14 best SurveyMonkey alternatives in 2024

14 best SurveyMonkey alternatives in 2024

SurveyMonkey is a well-known SaaS survey platform that was founded back in 1999. The software allows users to create surveys, quizzes, and polls for their audience. Surveys are easy to share, and results are gathered automatically. SurveyMonkey allows you to sign up for free or for paid team plans that start at $25 per month, with a minimum of three users.

However, SurveyMonkey isn’t your only option for creating online surveys, quizzes, and polls.

Reasons you might want a SurveyMonkey alternative

While SurveyMonkey is understandably popular, there are a few reasons why you might want to use another platform instead:

  • Limited free plan: SurveyMonkey offers a basic plan for free, but you’re limited to asking 10 questions and viewing 25 responses for each survey. Several features are also locked behind a paywall. If these aren’t enough for you, upgrading to a paid plan is always an option.
  • Pricing: You might not find SurveyMonkey’s paid plans for individuals affordable. A Standard Monthly plan is $99 per month.
  • Design: SurveyMonkey doesn’t provide much in terms of design customization options. This means that if you’d like your surveys to match your company’s branding, SurveyMonkey might be too limited for you.
  • Logic: Some users note that SurveyMonkey is generally best for simple surveys since the only logic offered is skip logic.

There’s no need to rebuild your online forms from scratch when switching to a new platform. Instead, migrate existing forms and submission data into your Jotform account in one click — so you can collect data without skipping a beat.

Your form can not be migrated.

Please ensure that your form URL is correct and that your form is set to “public” before attempting to migrate it again.

However, if you need conditional logic or lots of design customizations, you may find Google Forms limiting. If that’s the case, you may want to take a look at Google Forms alternatives.
