At its core, SurveyLegend is a survey tool, but it has so many features now that it’s evolved into an all-in-one form tool.
If you’re looking for a survey tool, you’ll find a few direct competitors for SurveyLegend, but focusing only on survey tools alone can be limiting. There are some great general-purpose form tools out there that stand up pretty well against survey-specific software.
Since SurveyLegend is now more of a general form tool, we’ll showcase both general and survey-specific form tools here to help you decide what might work best for you. Here are a few great options.
Qualtrics offers a massive suite of enterprise-level software. Somewhere in their ocean of offerings, you’ll find their survey software.
The software they offer ties in well with the rest of their products and offers enterprise-level quality. So if your company is already using Qualtrics, this is probably the one you should go with.
If not, signing up for Qualtrics will probably be overkill for individuals and most small to medium-sized businesses.
Conduct your own personalized surveys with Jotform’s free survey maker.
SurveyMonkey is another big fish in the survey software world, but while Qualtrics is all about meeting every business need in the universe, Survey Monkey is all about surveys.
SurveyMonkey successfully navigated the dot-com bubble of the early 2000s and the advent of Web 2.0. It’s been around since 1999, and it’s still innovating.
Where many tools expand and evolve to attract a fresh audience, SurveyMonkey has zeroed in on what they do best — surveys. They offer personal plans, but SurveyMonkey is definitely more focused on serving a business and enterprise crowd.
Jotform falls into the category of general-purpose form tools, but it’s a tool that’s hard to pin down because it does so much. Still, at its core, it’s a form tool.
Since surveys are just a type of form, Jotform has them covered. Jotform has more than 2,000 eye-catching, fully customizable survey templates to choose from to make getting started a snap — or you can build a survey from scratch using its drag-and-drop design interface. It also offers a free plan that lets you explore all of its features.
4. Sogolytics (Formerly SoGoSurvey)
Sogolytics is another tool that’s strongly focused on businesses. However, they’re a little lower on the food chain than Qualtrics.
Sogolytics has a free plan and four additional paid tiers, and each one offers a large selection of features that will benefit users who specifically need survey forms, including conditional logic for survey questions and advanced analytics.
SurveyLab is specifically a survey and market-research tool. It’s a somewhat middle-of-the-road product. It does surveys, and it does them well. It provides survey templates, collects responses, and analyzes the data.
LimeSurvey focuses on providing accessible, versatile surveys. It’s meant to be of service to individuals as well as businesses, and their pricing reflects that focus. It also stands out as a tool oriented toward students, universities, and community groups.
Responster is the last dedicated survey collection solution in our list. Like SurveyLab, they don’t cater to a specific niche.
Responster focuses on being a solid offering that’s easy to use. Their pricing is simple, with only a free plan and a paid plan, and they offer a solid set of services for everyone from individuals to enterprises.
8. Google Forms
Google Forms is a great foundational form tool. All you need to get started is a Google account. Once you have that, this free tool will make creating simple forms quick and easy.
Google Forms ties into Google Sheets, so you’ll have access to a familiar tool to manage your survey response data. And while Forms may lack a lot of the features that the other tools have, there are a ton of add-ons to give it more oomph.
9. Formidable Forms
Formidable Forms is a niche tool that will be useful to certain people. It’s one of the best form plugins for WordPress.
So, if you have a blog and want a way to survey your community, Formidable may be the best choice for you. There are other options for WordPress users, but Formidable is as good as anything else made just for WordPress.
Typeform is another general-purpose form tool. It focuses on aesthetically pleasing, clean designs, and its forms flow very smoothly, thanks to its one-question-per-page format and keyboard shortcuts.
So what does being pretty have to do with being a good survey tool? It’s a matter of follow-through.
When people look at a long, boring form, they often roll their eyes and abandon the process. Typeform’s clean design and user-friendly flow helps retain your audience longer, so you get more completed forms.
