Thinking about sending surveys in your email newsletters?
Here are some survey writing tips at the MarketingProfs website.
And we highly recommend SurveyMonkey.com (no relation to MailChimp) to build and host your survey. We create our surveys on SurveyMonkey, then it generates links that we place into our MailChimp email newsletters.
They have templates with built-in color schemes and stuff, but if you’re a design-it-yourselfer, and you absolutely positively must customize everything (like me) then you can use HTML to rig the look and feel of your surveys virtually any way you want.
