Should I use Google Docs, Survey Monkey, FB or a combination thereof? Should I survey people I know in the target industries, or post in larger groups? Looking to hear from SMBs and startups concerning b2b services.

Google forms are easy. Email them as a link otherwise folks have to register with Google and some won't. Survey Monkey is great, too and you can email it thru them or post a link thru social media. Survey Monkey has better analytical tools. Google just gives you a spreadsheet with answers.

I've always used Survey Monkey. Fast and intuititve. And the analytics are great.

I'm with everyone else - Survey Monkey is my go-to place for surveys. However, Twitter and Facebook allow you to easily poll friends and fans, so a combo of both is a good idea too.

I am a fan of Survey Monkey myself. You get the first 10 questions free. The additional ones are about $20/mo. It's easy to use and customize since it's drag and drop. I used it in grad school and it was essential in my Marketing MBA.

I've leveraged each in the past. Like other answers, Survey Monkey analytics is better. I would do a survey of your own network within the target industry, and also cast wider nets.

If the budget was there you could hire an agency :) but think SM will work just fine given your focus of SMB & Startups. Cheers, and Godspeed!
