Polly vs SurveyMonkey: What's right for me?

Of course we and the people who have sent millions of pollys are biasedthere's a reason we're consistently one of the most popular apps in Slack & Teamsbut here's an honest assessment: both Polly and SurveyMonkey allow you to build surveys, polls, and quizzes using a variety of question types, but they cater to different needs and use cases.

 

 

Why choose Polly over SurveyMonkey?

  • In-app native experiences within Slack, Teams and Zoom reduces context switching. 
  • Improved response rates by 7-10x over traditional surveys, giving you instant in-app & web results to make data-driven decisions.
  • Not just for surveys, Polly can also be used for daily stand-ups, team building with social games, measuring meeting effectiveness and more!
  • Cost: Polly premium plans are significantly cheaper than SurveyMonkey's basic plan.
  • Live chat support from real humans!

 

Where SurveyMonkey might work better for you

  • You want to send out more complex surveys while requiring features like response validation, randomization, branching, skip and conditional logic, and A/B tests.
  • You need help getting more responses using, their paid Audience product.
  • You require multiple users to collaborate on creating your survey. 
  • You want to customize the look and feel of your survey
  • You need a question bank of  1800+ pre-written questions and approx. 200 survey templates.
  • You require advanced analysis & visualisation tools like customizable charts/graphs, filters, comparing rules, and word clouds.

 

The Final Word

  • Polly is the right tool if you’re looking for a dead simple way to collect feedback or build connections with your team. The fact that you can collect responses in-app as well as on the web (from respondents not on the platform) gives a boost to your response limit!

  • However, if you have complex requirements for your survey setup, SurveyMonkey might be a better fit.
