Collecting surveys from your users or potential users is one of the best ways to gauge how and why they’re interested in your product. Sometimes you may be surprised by what you learn, but more often, surveys are a great way to identify your strongest advocates and highlight their happiness.

While developers can easily build forms to capture customer responses, it’s usually much faster to use an off-the-shelf product or service. Below we’ve collected some of our favorite options.
