SurveyMonkey is a tool that people can use to create surveys, solicit feedback, analyze the current market, plan events and more. Typically, creating a survey could be a time-consuming and complicated task. However, SurveyMonkey has made it quite easy for anyone to create, customize and evaluate opinions in an effective and professional manner. SurveyMonkey supports all of the traditional surveying features such as drop down answers, radio buttons, comment boxes and more. Once a survey has been created on SurveyMonkey, the host just needs to send out or publish the link on their site. Recipients can then access the survey and complete it as needed. Individuals completing the survey will not necessarily realize that this is a SurveyMonkey site rather than the directing company, since the survey can be customized with the host's logo. SurveyMonkey also has an invitation manager built into its product so companies can manage the timeframe and manner that the surveys are communicated to their audience. Finally, SurveyMonkey supports a number of different languages so it is accessible to many different people and organizations worldwide.
