WebEngage is a feedback tool that helps websites and businesses obtain valuable information from their customers and visitors. The service offers private feedback obtained directly from the user’s audience. The user can begin by creating a basic feedback form with custom categories. The user can add colors to their feedback tab so it blends with their website design. Users can also create surveys that are available to all visitors or specific visitors only. WebEngage surveys can include dropdown boxes, comment boxes, text boxes and other input options. The user can also set rules, such as a rule that displays the survey to users who found the website using Google or users who have been on a specific page for more than 30 seconds.
WebEngage was founded by Avlesh Singh and Ankit Utreja. The application was built on seed funding raised by investors from the Indian Angel Network. The service has been mentioned on the web and has been discussed in a positive light by its users. Many website owners find that WebEngage lets them obtain valuable information directly from their visitors without hindering the visitor’s experience on their site. The service continues to offer a number of ways to customize forms.
The website form is not really a new thing. Many sites host polls, surveys and request feedback from visitors. WebEngage is appealing because it expands on the basic idea of asking visitors questions to get specific answers about their experience. The application lets users customize the look of their forms as well as when the form appears. Rather than show a specific feedback form or survey to all visitors, the user can set guidelines so the form appears before the right visitor.
WebEngage uses a very modern, sleek design which is vital to its success. Website owners do not want to place an outdated, unappealing form on their website. WebEngage provides a simple form that glides smoothly on the site, without throwing itself in front of the visitor. The user chooses colors so the form matches their web pages. The interface is simple to understand and provides an overall positive experience for visitors filing out WebEngage forms.
A new user can create a WebEngage account by clicking the brown “Sign Up” button in the upper, right hand corner of the homepage. The form on the next page asks for a name, email address, password and plan option. The user is advised that a verification email has been sent to their inbox. This must be accessed before the user can sign in and begin using WebEngage for the first time.
WebEngage offers four package options to users. The first is a free plan that includes one administrator, one active survey and up to 30 responses per survey. The Basic plan costs $15 per website per month and includes access for up to three administrators, SSL support, email support, custom fields, up to 10 active surveys and up to 1,000 responses per survey. The standard plan costs $49 per website per month and includes access for up to five administrators, up to 100 surveys and 10,000 responses per survey. The premium plan costs $99 per website per month and includes access for up to 20 administrators, email and phone support, up to 500 active surveys and unlimited survey responses. An assisted plan is offered but requires a custom quote.
WebEngage is a great tool for website owners who are serious about improving their site’s traffic. Users can ask meaningful questions and receive valuable responses from visitors. The application is easy to learn and provides a number of plans that fall into a wide range of budgets. Casual users can set up one survey for free while serious users can try one of the paid plans.
