The iSurvey plugin is designed to help you list build virally, and yes it’s mobile friendly / responsive.  😉

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?

Active Survey Plugin

Offer Closed


List Building With Surveys

The Active Survey plugin is designed to let you set up surveys on your WordPress driven sites that gradually lead the visitor down a path to wherever it is you want to lead them.  😉

Demo Page Here

This could be just to gain some information, deliver a loaded freebie that will generate revenue, generate a new subscriber or even all of the above at the same time.

Yep. It’s a VERY flexible plugin and there are enough options in there to satisfy most people I reckon.

It works by allowing you to create multiple choice questions, so it’s nice and easy for the visitor to complete.

Here’s my philosophy on this.

You want the visitor to take a pre-determined target action. Let’s say this is simply to give you an idea of what would be a good colour choice to base your new web design around. (And also to subscribe to one of your mailing lists. Why not? Two birds, one stone.)

The last thing you want to do is to make their life difficult and have them abandon the survey and so not give you the information you’re after.

So you give them some nice and easy multiple choice questions that they can enjoy, and so ensure they complete the survey. You can make it so that all the questions  are designed to give you information only, or you could throw in a bit of fun.

I think it’s probably a good idea to throw some fun questions in and make people chuckle.

If they’ve enjoyed it, then there’s a good chance they might want to share it with their friends, so Active Survey has a built in social sharing aspect to it and allows people to FB Like or Share it, Tweet, G+, and Linked In too. If you don’t like the way this works, you can just disable it and add your own sharing plugin.

Active Survey also has a comprehensive bonus system built in too.

So you can set up multiple bonus packages in advance and then select one of them from a drop-down when you create the survey.

You can also do things like hide the bonuses so that only WP subscribers (members) get to see them. And you can optionally require that people have to subscribe to your WP blog before they can even take the survey.

You might want to do this if you’re giving away something very desirable in order to list build, and want to change the site flow around a little. There’s that flexiblity again.  😉

Active Survey will generate its own pages, but you can also add them to existing pages with a short code.

It goes on sale at 6.00pm GMT (1.00pm EST) Friday 20th June at just $10.

During this sale only, a full developer (client / flipper) licence is included and also RESALE RIGHTs is included too – you can sell it, but your buyers can’t.
