Why you should choose SmokeSurveys?

Is it really free?
The free version is exactly that, FREE. You will be able to create, distribute and analyse surveys at no cost. However, additional branding, volume and other benefits are derived from the Enterprise and Corporate contracts. 

Who can use this service? 
The service is available to everyone. For example businesses often use it to conduct employee satisfaction surveys, receive customer/product feedback, or book people into events. Student and academics use the service to collect a wide range of data on every topic you can imagine. 

How do I create and distribute my survey?
This is the beauty of SmokeSurveys, it is so easy, once you've registered you simply start a new questionnaire and enter the questions you want answered. If you already know what you want to ask then this will only take a few minutes to complete.


After you have constructed the questions and you personal look and feel for the questionnaire just click the launch button and the service will provide you with a standard web link to your survey which you can add to your website, it will also provide you with banner coding for your website and a "button" in the form of your logo to e-mail off to possible respondents. We can also provide you with some 'popup' window code to add to your website, or you can upload a list of e-mail addresses (OPT-IN SUBSCRIBERS OR EMPLOYEES ONLY) and send them an invitation to take your survey. 

How are the results collected and analysed? 
We collect and store the results data for you. The data will appear in your analysis page instantly. 
Our results page will analyse the data for you and display various charts showing the totals and averages for each question. 

If you are a paying customer then you can view the completed surveys individually or download them as a spreadsheet. In addition the individual results can be emailed to you as soon as they are collected which can be handy if you are using the questionnaire as a sales or contact form.

What happens if I exceed the limits of the Free account? 
Your surveys will continue to work and the results will still be collected for a time. You will not however, be able to view the results unless you upgrade the account.

Can I download to SPSS?

Please ensure that you only cancel when you are finished with your results, as your account will revert to the free status one month after cancelation notice has been received and you will no longer have access to your results.
