Get Respondents For Any Platform Using Pollfish Third Party Surveys

Pollfish is proud of the fact that we have combined the process of building a questionnaire and getting a targeted sample of respondents into one easy-to-use platform.

But some researchers have a questionnaire they like and just want to get a new sample. As not all sample providers are created equal, we wanted to make this process as simple as possible.

That’s why researchers have the option of using Pollfish Third-Party Surveys as a plan perk on Elite accounts.

What is a 3rd Party Survey?

Using Pollfish as 3rd Party Survey distributor, you could access the highest quality data, instantly and anywhere across the globe. You can buy survey respondents from a massive mobile app network, while still using any survey platform you like.

In order to create a 3rd party survey with Pollfish, you must collect a minimum of 400 responses on an Elite account.

Keep in mind that we partner with 140K+ mobile apps distributed throughout the App Store and Google Play Store. Our unique partnership model and audience size means we can offer access to real mobile consumers at a massive scale and provide sample for any size survey. We are talking to everyday people like you and me, not professional panelists.

What survey platforms are supported?

You can use a third-party link to connect to our audience from many top survey tools.

There are a few things you should know about working with the above platforms:

  • Google Surveys are not supported at this time.
  • If you’d like to run a 3rd party survey through Typeform, you need to become a Pro user on Typeform. Typeform states “Redirect on completion is a PRO+ feature that loads a new web address when a form is submitted, no matter what someone responded”
  • If you are running a 3rd party survey through QuestionPro and you want to redirect to other pages at the end of the survey, you will need to have an upgraded account.

A note about 3rd party demographic data

With Pollfish 3rd party surveys, you can target users based on demographics but Pollfish won’t share any demographic data. If you want to collect demographic data, you need to add related demographic questions within the 3rd party survey.

Happy results!
