Do you ever sit at night wondering about what your customers are thinking when it comes to your business? Or maybe it’s not your customers, but the people within your company. Perhaps you’re gathering information about a new market, or product. Well, surveys are a great way to collect this information!

Two great tools to use for surveying are SurveyMonkey Advantage and Gravity Forms Survey Add-Ons. In this blog, we will go through some key differences not only between the two tools, but also between what each of their plans offers.


SurveyMonkey is a platform that allows you to create surveys and review the collected data. We have broken down their 3 plans into a few charts, comparing prices and features.

The most notable difference between the 3 plans is the Standard plan only allowing 1000 responses per month. However, if you aren’t surveying a large group, then the standard size should suffice.
