One of the best ways to get feedback from your customers is to ask them to participate in a survey. Unless you are living in the dark ages, you probably know that surveys have gone digital. Unfortunately, many services make you pay by the survey or, gulp, the question.
Not so with LimeSurvey. LimeSurvey is an open source survey software that offers unlimited surveys and control over the design and functionality of the questionnaire. Check out the demo. Limesurvey has a many features- here are the highlights:
- unlimited number of questions
- unlimited participants
- open/closed group participants
- 20 different question types, including conditional questions
- picture and video integration
- invitations and reminders
- template editor
- easy import/export of raw data (CVS, PDF, Excel, etc)
LimeSurvey is a free download, but you will need to install the software on a server with PHP 4.2 and a MYSQL database to store all your LimeSurvey information. While it may sound confusing, it is a straight-forward installation for a web developer.
Bottom line, a survey tool like LimeSurvey is an easy source for perspective (and intelligence) on your business relationships. There’s no need to stay in the dark.
