FluidSurveys can be used to design online forms and questionnaires. This can be done for marketing surveys, to ask questions of a web site's readership, to help design new products and more. The app allows users to design surveys that change as the reader fills them out. In other words, certain types of answers in the first few questions of the survey will have an impact on the type of questions posed later of the reader. It is a great app for surveying readers on complex issues.Show more screenshots »
FluidSurveys, founded in 2008 with headquarters in both Canada and the United States, is gaining popularity as one of the easiest to use survey tools out there. It is run by Eli Fathi and Aydin Mirzaee as co-chief executive officers. FluidSurveys is widely used in North America by universities, government agencies, hospitals, banks and other organizations. The FluidSurveys Donation Program is also helping the app spread by giving charitable organizations free use of it.
FluidSurveys delivers a complex app in a very easy-to-use manner. The survey functions allow for a complex range of answers. Users of the app can design a survey so that it changes in real time based on the answers of the survey takers. For example, a "no" answer early on in the survey can be explored at greater depth in later questions whereas a "yes" answer that doesn't need clarification wouldn't face those questions.
The app is surprisingly simple to use. Creating survey is done by typing questions in boxes and then clicking an array of options. A question in the survey can be expanded on, depending on the answer. Survey can be multiple choice, yes or no, or a variety of other forms. To change the format, the user simply click an option in the left-hand menu. A series of tabs help users learn of the options. Combined with a drag and drop interface, users can create surveys in little time and with virtually no experience with the software.
To register, click on the Sign Up link at the top of the app's home page. From there, you will be asked to write in a Nickname, along with your real name, an e-mail address and a password. You will then be sent an e-mail. You must click on the link in the e-mail to confirm your e-mail address. From there, you can immediately begin creating a survey. It also allows you to import surveys from Zoomerang and Survey Monkey.
FluidSurveys comes in a free version that allows as many as 20 questions per survey and up to 150 responses. The least expensive paid version costs $19 a month and allows unlimited responses. It also allows for more complex surveys. The Ultra package costs $59 a month and allows advanced questions, branching, data analysis and more. FluidSurveys also offers an Enterprise package although users must contact the company for custom pricing details.
The app is highly recommended for users seeking to collect readership responses, customer feedback, marketing information and more. For limited surveys, users have the free option. For broader responses, more complex questions and survey analysis, the paid versions work exceedingly well.
