Tech Note: Utilizing a Free Web Poll

In an earlier blog on online survey software, I emphasized my own interest in free and low-cost survey options. It's not time to update that list yet but this free offer from Snap Surveys deserves a mention:

SnapShot Poll is a "free web poll" from Snap. It may be the shortest free survey you can run on the web. It's exactly one item long. (See the rest of the web site for information about software for sale. A colleague reports that the software is worth the price in the low thousands.)

Here's a link to an example of the one-item survey. (On some web pages the code embeds the graphic nicely; on this blog, it did not but Snap provides the linking code, too.) Set-up takes about 3 minutes. Snap does not limit the number of polls you create.
