Do you want to know what your customers are thinking? Many of our clients do.
There are several options available of course and we often help clients choose just the right solution.
At the simple end of the spectrum you can use a third party poll script for the simple data collection. We are not fans for a number of reasons, most significant of which are that you are giving your data to a third party and your site is reliant on their site for performance.
There are also a number of poll softwares, plug-ins and the like that run entirely within your server, for example within wordpress. This is a better solution in our opinion. Need help getting one going? Give us a call.
There are also a number of other options such as Survey Monkey (free version is very limited) and it suffers from the same defects as using a third party poll.
We have a function that we often install for clients called phpESP. We like it a lot for a number of reasons, but it allows you to build surveys and questionnaires on the fly. It will store the information in a mySQL database and it allows you to export the data in csv (comma separated values) or other spread sheet ready formats.
