Features

SurveySparrow

SurveySparrow is an online survey platform that lets you create beautiful, conversational surveys that people love to answer.

You get the ability to add images, GIFs, emoticons, and videos to your surveys to make them more interactive. Couple that with the ability to ask only one question at a time and you make it easier and more enjoyable for your audience to answer your questions.

Also, you can create website chatbots and embed them on your website to conduct chat surveys, which is a great way to collect accurate data and engage your site visitors.

SurveySparrow has a simple-to-use interface and lets you quickly create surveys with pre-built templates. No matter your use case, you’ll find a ready-to-use survey template from its extensive library.

SurveyMonkey

SurveyMonkey is a popular survey tool that lets you create surveys that involve only text.

Although you get access to plenty of templates, the tool doesn’t give you the ability to add images, videos, or any other interactive elements.

Also, currently, you don’t have an option to add custom CSS to your surveys.

SurveySparrow, on the other hand, not only lets you create surveys with images, icons, and videos but also lets you easily customize the appearance of a survey to match your brand.

A few clicks are all it takes to customize the colors, fonts, and media to make it uniquely yours.

While you can use our simple user interface to make your surveys look on-brand, you could also add your own custom CSS and HTML to change the look and feel of your surveys.

Typeform

Typeform is another popular tool that lets you create beautiful surveys. It lets you create interactive surveys similar to the ones you can create using SurveySparrow and offers plenty of pre-built templates.

Yes, Typeform takes a similar approach to that of SurveySparrow—both tools allow you to enhance the aesthetics of your surveys with images and videos and let you serve only one question at a time.

But there are things that Typeform doesn’t offer that you might need and should be aware of.

Typeform doesn’t allow you to set up a custom domain of your choice. All your surveys will be served from their own domain. You can only pick a subdomain of your choice such as business1.typeform.com or business2.typeform.com.

Also, you don’t get the option to add your own custom CSS to your surveys. This means, you can’t make any tweaks or adjustments to the existing CSS styles—or simply put, the survey’s default appearance—if you wanted to.

The big letdown, though, is that Typeform doesn’t give you the ability to create NPS surveys and 360 assessments — two important kinds of surveys that most businesses will need to conduct.

NPS surveys let you gauge the quality of a certain aspect of your business. And 360-degree assessments are important if you want to create a winning team, big or small.

Both SurveySparrow and SurveyMonkey let you create NPS surveys and 360-degree assessments.

Also, both the tools let you conduct offline surveys while Typeform doesn’t.

Among the three tools discussed above, SurveySparrow offers more robust survey reporting and analysis tools. It provides you with real-time reports and an executive dashboard.

You can easily cross-tabulate responses using the compare feature, schedule reports to your inbox at a convenient time, and export data as PDF, Excel, and SPSS.

Qualtrics

Qualtrics is quite different from the aforementioned tools. It’s a survey platform used by enterprise businesses and educational institutions for large research projects.

You’d want to use Qualtrics if you’re looking to gather large amounts of data from a huge sample and need several advanced tools to analyze that data.

It’s unique in that it offers:

  • templates for use cases commonly encountered in large organizations
  • advanced survey analysis tools and reporting options
  • more options to create branches of questions based on logic.

Pricing

SurveySparrow

SurveySparrow has different pricing options for personal and business users. All the personal plans are based on a single user seat. You can, however, add additional users to any pricing plan that it offers.

The basic plan is free and lets you generously collect 1000 responses per month. The 19$ plan provides you access to certain important features such as logic and scoring.

The 49$ plan is the one we recommend. It gives you the ability to collect 10000 responses, add expressions, custom CSS, and HTML, accept payments, and remove the “powered by SurveySparrow” watermark from your surveys.

The 149$ business plan allows you to collect 50K responses/month and includes 2 users.

SurveyMonkey

SurveyMonkey offers a free plan that lets you collect 1000 responses. And similar to SurveySparrow, SurveyMonkey has different prices for personal and business users.

However, SurveyMonkey’s business plans are based on the per-user pricing model, so the cost quickly adds up.

SurveySparrow, on the other hand, has adopted a flat pricing model for its business plans. The business plans come with a set amount of users per plan. Also, the ability to add any number of users to a plan is provided as an add-on.

Typeform

Typeform’s free plan lets you run 3 surveys, ask 10 questions per survey, and collect 100 responses per month. The paid plans start at 35$ per month.

Qualtrics

Qualtrics offers a free plan that allows you to send 1 survey with a maximum of 100 responses.

Its enterprise tier account costs 5000$ per month.

Ease of Use and Set-up

Since Qualtrics offers a ton of advanced functionalities and complex capabilities, it has a steep learning curve and requires training before you can use the software.

Without educating your team on how to use the software, it wouldn’t be possible for them to gather data using it. So you need to be willing to invest time and effort to learn how to use the software.

Both SurveyMonkey and Typeform are comparatively much easier to use than Qualtrics.

Can you guess the tool that’s easiest to use among the aforementioned tools?

Yup, SurveySparrow. Even if you’ve never created a survey before, you’ll find it easy to create one using SurveySparrow.

While SurveySparrow provides you with some advanced functionalities, it does so while keeping the interface easy and intuitive to use.

With SurveySparrow, you just get the right features you’d need to quickly collect actionable insights. No need to navigate through a maze of features you’ll never use.

It’s why SurveySparrow is the highest-rated survey software for ease of use on G2Crowd.

You don’t need to talk to anyone or need any help to take it for a spin. The onboarding is entirely self-guided (with hands-on support if you need it!)

If you found other survey tools quite difficult to use or set up, that’s one more reason for you to give SurveySparrow a shot.

Put an End to Siloed Survey Data

When you use multiple tools to collect survey data, you risk creating the so-called data silos.

When your data is in separate silos, you undermine the quality and credibility of that data.

Here are some disadvantages of data silos:

  • It decreases the accuracy of the data when it comes to decision-making.
  • And it hinders the process of gleaning deep insights from your survey data.

That’s why companies use an all-in-one tool like SurveySparrow.

Silos cease to be a barrier when your survey data is centralized and optimized for analysis.

SurveySparrow helps you remove this barrier so you can get a holistic view of your survey data.

  • Customize your email surveys’ subject line, body, etc.
