For a cost-effective online survey solution, LimeSurvey is excellent. While it cannot compete with high-end, expensive software like Qualtrics, it does a great job.

SurveySparrow
Well getting surveys from clients is a hectic job (as a user we all ignore surveys all the time ) SurveySparrow comes to the rescue and provides links to forward your survey on WhatsApp, email, and so many options. You can create a copy of the survey which you created and that is very time efficient. Suppose you have 3 clients and you give them the same service you can add a variable that will simply change the name of the client and the rest of the survey stays the same no need to create a different survey, mega time saver.

SurveySparrow
  • Creating and sending surveys is very easy and intuitive, no instructions needed. The interface is clean and inviting.
  • The mobile-first interface greatly increases response rates form my experience. Filling out a survey is like text messaging on your phone.
  • Surveys are more conversational in tone rather than an answer to the question style of the survey most other companies offer.
  • The feature set is not as robust as some other survey software but its simplicity makes it easy to use all around.
  • Customer support is very responsive.

Alternatives Considered
LimeSurvey
LimeSurvey was much cheaper than Qualtrics but certainly less powerful. From a survey standpoint, it has more capabilities than SurveyMonkey and Zoho. LimeSurvey has no reporting or analytic capabilities.

We originally used Survey Monkey but found customer support to be unresponsive when we needed it and also the style of surveys you could create were bland and boring, leading to lower response rates. We chose Survey Sparrow for their mobile-first and chat-style survey interface because we have a mobile audience and have found they prefer this style of survey better.
