There has been an increasing trend lately of creating a quiz, survey or poll and sharing on social media.
The idea is not only to create more interaction, but you can also build your list or offer special promotions at the end of the quiz, survey or poll that you create. But What Quiz, Survey or Poll Site is Best for You?
There are several different sites that you can use to create a quiz, survey, poll or even a personality quiz. Some are better than others, some offer more with their free offer, some offer very little, some are user-friendly, others not as much.
If you are looking to create a survey for your site and/or share on social media, to save you some time and help you choose the right survey site, here are a few that I have used and what they offer.
With opinion stage you can easily create awesome interactive content. It's fast and easy. Embed the content on your site or run it from their landing pages.
This site has so many features it's crazy! Create Polls, Surveys, Trivia Quizzes, Personality Quizzes, Slideshows, Create listacles of anything, Forms and create an article using visual & interactive elements. It also integrates with hundreds of other social media platforms
They offer a free basic package for non commercial use, but the pricing and packages they offer are reasonable and offer both monthly and yearly options that range from $19.00/mo. to $249/mo. or $199 yearly, (save up to 34%) for the High Performance Package.
You can view the online version of the poll on the right in a new window from here.
Create your free online surveys with SurveyMonkey , the world's leading questionnaire tool.
The free version of SurveyMonkey allows you to create 10 questions per survey and collect only 100 responses per survey. The paid version starts at $26/mo. This site has tons of options and features when creating your surveys! I highly suggest you at least check this site out for yourself.
You can easily change the embed forms height and width to fit your website, you can also use it as a "pop-up" on your website. You have several options at the end of the quiz including sending people to the survey results or not. With the paid upgrade, you can also use 'Question Skip Logic'. This feature will redirect respondents to another page of your survey based on their answer. One of the embed versions is to the above right and you can only view an online version with a paid upgrade.
Crowd Signal (formerly known as Polldaddy), allows you to create Surveys, Polls, Quizzes.
Another feature for WordPress websites is the Ratings feature that you can add to any or all of your WordPress posts. This allows visitors to rate your articles from 1 to 5 stars.
With the free version you can create unlimited polls, view results. $0 forever. Content contains Crowd Signal links, Basic reports for polls, surveys, & quizzes. Other than that, you get it all. There dashboard is extremely user-friendly, but one of the features I like the most are the settings for what you can do after people take the poll. All of these are options that you can control.
- Repeat voting
- Hide results
- Allow comments
If you own a WordPress site, they have a great plugin that allows you to easily add the forms and the ratings feature to your posts.
QZZR allows you to create either a graded quiz (e.g. "Where is this in the US") or an outcome quiz (e.g. "Which type of Superhero are you"). With the free version, you can collect 5 leads, promote 10 offers and 25 share redirects per quiz. However, you can create unlimited responses and create unlimited quizzes with the free version. The paid version starts at $19.00/mo.
tryinteract allows you to embed quizzes on your website to engage customers and generate leads, but with the free version, you can only create 2. This is a great tool for collecting emails though and if you want to create 1 or 2 just for that, it is worth it with the free version.
Another neat feature is you can direct people to a specific part of the questionnaire based on their answers. e.g. If someone scores a 10 you can send them to a different ending page that someone that scored a 20. Integrates with all the top email marketing and automation programs; Mailchimp, Constant Contact, Marketo, AWeber, Feedburner and Mad Mimi. You can easily share your quiz on social media sites, but the embed code for your website is not as flexible. You cannot adjust the width or height of your quiz, so you can't use it in a widget. The website version of the quiz is below, you can see the online version from here. The starting plan for their paid version is only $29/mo.
Google Forms is a survey administration software included as part of the free, web-based Google Docs Editors suite offered by Google.
The service also includes Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides, Google Drawings, Google Sites, and Google Keep. Google Forms is only available as a web application.
The online version of this forms is https://forms.gle/UDVYybvNiMF9Lmk96

I hope this helps you in choosing the right site to create your Quiz, Survey or Poll! If you can suggest any others that you found, please let me know below in the comments.
