Get Creative and Use SurveyMonkey for More Than Just Surveys

As you know by now, SurveyMonkey is great at helping you create, send and analyze surveys. But recently, we’ve been noticing that some of you have been getting pretty creative with your surveys! Since SurveyMonkey collects and stores data for you, it can also be used to accomplish a wide variety of tasks and help you make better decisions like keeping track of customer data, planning an event, and one of our favorite examples, creating tournament brackets for your favorite sporting events!

So take a look, and get inspired!

Track and Store Customer Data

Robert Cradle is a master barber and the founder of the non-profit, Rob’s Barbershop Community Foundation (RBCF), which provides grooming services and products for the homeless. Since the organization started in 2000, RBCF has serviced over 6000 clients and uses SurveyMonkey as its primary database, which makes keeping track of clients, generating impact data, and reporting back to the donor base a breeze. Read more about RBCF’s inspiring story.

Plan Your Wedding

Sometimes it seems like planning a wedding, or any event for that matter, requires a PhD in organization! See how Tom & Angie used SurveyMonkey to plan their big day, coordinate with guests from all over the globe and, best of all, share their love story within the survey. Take a look (and don’t forget to RSVP)!

Share a Tournament Bracket

Whether you’ve got Olympic fever or March Madness, we have the cure for you! Harness the spirit of competition by building your own tournament bracket within SurveyMonkey. Let the best man (or in our case, monkey) win! Check out this sweet tournament bracket!

Create Quizzes and Tests

Time for a pop quiz! Don’t be scared, this is an easy one. What’s an easy-to-use, cost effective way to assess how well a group has grasped a concept? And how can this be done without the headache correcting tons of papers? We think you know the answer. But just to be sure, read on to see how one teacher uses SurveyMonkey in the classroom.
