I've been using Polldaddy to integrate brief polls into this blog, and some other free tools for similar purposes.
I just added a new Poll on the site here, to get a sense of what types of posts are favored by readers (this has long since been taken down – KW 9/8/12). I've had a few other polls here, and have been using Polldaddy to create the polls and embed them on the site here. This functionality is free from Polldaddy.
Polldaddy also works for creating stand-alone web based surveys. They offer limited functionality for free, and have paid plans providing more extensive functionality. I thought it was worth mentioning here, along with some other free tools I've used for similar purposes.
I am a big a fan of SurveyMonkey – I use it frequently to create top-notch web based surveys for free (I just realized I've never posted about this great tool! I've now added it to my list of future topics). I have also found Doodle to be great for simple polls, especially as a tool for scheduling training sessions (see this post for more on that).
If anyone has any feedback or comments on PollDaddy or any other free polling and survey tools, please drop a comment and share! Thanks.
