Demo Page

It enables you to quickly put up simple surveys on your blog so that you can find out what your visitors or customers really want. As well as being able to set up the questions, there are also a ton of options in the admin panel to allow you control over the look and feel of your surveys.

o Select colours, images, borders and other design options
o Optionally upload your own background photos and logos
o Text, textarea, radio and checkbox questions
o All major social sharing buttons at survey completion
o Optional auto URL redirect at survey end
o Fully widgetised – design your own to suit the location
o Add surveys to widgets
o Create multiple widget design with a single survey
o Add widgets to pages and posts as well as sidebars (TinyMCE button)
o Display widgets as popups with optional lightbox effect
o Display different widgets by posts and pages
o Display widgets globally and on the home page
o View individual survey results

There are widget options to enable you to add a widget to a widgetised area if you wish, and you can also add the same widget to pages and posts via a button in the TinyMCE editor.

There’s even a built in popup with an optional lightbox effect.

To support the popup functionality, you can either set global options for the home page and also for every page and post, OR there’s a new admin block in pages and posts to allow you to select the survey popup you want to display to your visitor for that page or post only.

You can create your survey using four essential question types.

#1 – A simple text field for asking for information like name, email address, etc.

#2 – A longer textarea field for more complete information such as “What do you think of…?” types of questions.

#3 – Radio button questions for getting the survey taker to select one of a list.

#4 – Checkbox style questions for asking the user to select all that apply.

And at the end of the survey there’s a full complement of social sharing buttons to help make your survey go viral, or you can optionally auto-redirect them to another URL.

Here’s an example of how you could use it, and make it go viral for you.

You promise to give everyone who completes the survey something you think they want such as a downloadable report or a short video showing them how to do something useful.

When they complete the survey you give them the promised item and tell them that when you have enough people complete the survey, then you’ll give everyone who completed it something even better (you decide what). You then say that to help this happen would they mind sharing the survey using one of the share buttons?

And if your offer is attractive enough, it goes viral. More and more people take the survey and share it and on it goes.

Here’s another example.

If you’re already gathering names and email addresses via paid advertising, then you could even set up a series of surveys as landing pages for your campaigns together with your offer. At the end of the survey you could then either leave the sharing active as described in the previous example, or choose to use the redirect feature to send them to a CPA page or to a product or service you’re promoting.

And one final example.

You could send your existing lists through the surveys you’ve created as part of your autoresponder sequence. You would design each survey to promote interest in the visitor for the type of product you’re promoting. In other words, send them to a survey about list building, and at the end give them a short report about list building with your affiliate links in it, and/or place a link on the final page to take them to the key list building product you’re promoting.

The upshot is, by getting people to fill in short fun surveys you can also make them mentally “change gear” and get them to start thinking about the product you’re promoting at the end of the survey, while also getting valuable information about what it is they want from this kind of product.  😉

Cool eh?

Hi Frank,
Nice plugin, and the back-end is very clean and smart.
First, I’d like to know if the texts of the buttons ‘Start” and ‘No Thanks’ can be changed to our own language ?
Second is there a po file in english that could be used to translste through PoEdit ?
Thank you

Frank Haywood

Hi Patrick,

Thank and yes you can edit the text for the buttons. I know the video was a bit of a whistle-stop tour as the plugin is so large, but under the “Content” option for each survey you can change the text for the buttons, and pretty much everything really.

There isn’t a po file but I think there probably should be and it’s something I’ll think seriously about for future plugins. While looking through the code for this plugin I noticed a lot of PHP “_e” which is WordPress’s way of accessing language files and echoing the content to the screen, so it may not be a big deal to put it in. I can’t promise anything though for this plugin at this stage because I don’t know how much effort it will take to add language functionality.
