If you use a mailing list in SharpSpring to distribute your surveys, we automatically capture subscribers' first & last name and email address information - so you'll know who responded to your survey! You'll be able to filter survey results by these attributes, too. You can also add any attributes to your survey link supported by SharpSpring.

There are two ways to distribute your survey with SharpSpring:

  1. Hide the survey link behind a CTA button, or hyperlink

  2. Embed the first question into SharpSpring email to boost your response rate

Step 1. Create an email survey

Use the Create new survey button, select Email or shareable link survey, and pick whether you'd like to use a ready template or start from scratch. Now, build your survey by adding your questions, and applying survey logic.

❗️Please remember! If you want to embed your survey in an email, the first question of your survey needs to be either a welcome message, a single choice, a smiley scale, a rating scale, or a Net Promoter Score. If you choose any other type of question to the first one, we will only provide you with the link to your survey.

Step 2. Design your survey experience

Customize your survey page in the Design tab by adding your company logo and changing colors. Make your surveys entirely branded as your own!

Step 3. Configure the survey settings

Once you are ready with your survey, head on to the Configure tab and pick SharpSpring as the distribution tool under 'Identify respondents with':

Under the Configure tab, you can enable other options like multiple responses.

Step 4. Set up integrations for your email survey

Enable chosen Integrations to send the responses collected to apps you're using or enable email notifications.
