You’re clear on what your goal is for your quiz. You know what questions to ask and which ones to avoid. You’ve made your quiz short enough that it’ll be do-able, even for busy members of your community.

Now, you just need the right technology to create your quiz. But you’re stumped. You don’t know what to use or how to gather your results. If that describes you, try one of these three tools to design your quiz:

Formidable Forms

Kelly McCausey of Solo Smarts uses this software when she wants feedback from her community. Formidable Forms is a WordPress plugin. There’s a free version that’s suitable for most needs and you can download it here.

Formidable also offers a premium version of this plugin. You can use it to send an automated email response to your quiz participants which is helpful. You can also ask for submitted content in your posts and pages with their custom template options.

Once a person completes your quiz, you want them to be redirected to a ‘thank you’ page which you can design to your benefit. The free version doesn’t have this capability, but it will show a message to let participants know their answers have been received.

The premium options will give you more control over the look and feel of your quiz. They’ll also create a mobile-friendly version of your form so your quiz is responsive. You can learn more about the premium versions by clicking here.

Survey Monkey

This online software lets you design your own quizzes and surveys. Like Formidable, you can choose between the free option and premium versions. With the free option, you can get up to 100 responses in a month.

If you have a large community of several thousand people, then you may be better with a premium option. But if you’re just getting your business started or you only need a small sample of responses, then the free version of Survey Monkey should have everything you need.

Poll Daddy

Poll Daddy lets users create and manage quizzes, surveys, polls, and more. It integrates with WordPress and you can include your own logo for branding purposes. You can also choose between different question styles.

Like Survey Monkey, there are different pricing tiers. If you opt for the free option, you have less control over the look and feel of your quiz.

However, a paid plan lets you fully customize the CSS used to make your form. The paid plan also gives you the option to set custom ‘welcome’ and ‘thank you’ pages, so users are redirected to your website after filling out the quiz.

Don’t get hung up on which tool to use. Pick the one that feels most natural to you and start creating your quiz. Create a free account and if you need to, you can always upgrade to a paid plan later on.
