Using Google Docs Forms
Skip dedicated plugins and paid accounts, Google Docs is the fastest easiest way to poll your community!
Whether you need an embedded form for your blog or a hosted form to share on Twitter or Facebook, Google Docs Forms have you covered!
How to Set Up and Use Google Docs Forms
As you can see, Google Docs Forms offer a range of flexibility including emailed forms, embedded forms and even hosted forms all available for free!
Simply visit Google Docs and click create and select form. Now give your form a name and description. Enter your questions one at a time and delete the sample question. Be sure to click save. Once you have entered your questions, click on “Theme: plain” to change the theme. Select a new theme and click apply. Save. Now you can (select) email, embed or copy the link location (from the bottom of the page) for use as needed. Easy-Peasy!
This solves 98% of the poll/survey form needs most marketers will encounter. However, for advanced form needs (such as custom forms or forms with deep level WordPress integration) be sure to check out Gravity Forms (aff) & Formidable Pro (aff).
