If they do, how big is it? Does it cover an array of various professional and personal topics? Are you able to upload questions that you may have already typed up? How about customization? Are there pre-made themes to choose from, or full access to CSS?

With QuestionPro, you can do everything above and more!

Distribution

When you're ready to distribute your survey, what sort of options do you have? If you're aware of who you want to send it to, can you create and manage an email list for easy, mass delivery?

Analysis

When your survey is live and you're collecting results, can you see a snapshot like overview of your respondents actions, including how many have started your survey, completed it, and how many dropped out?
