Survey Monkey: hosting surveys and selling subscriptions to my surveys

Survey Monkey is affordable enough and feature rich enough to enable me to make the kinds of surveys I will be needing. I plan on starting with NO CRM on day 1 since I need to quickly empower thousands of sales people to start knocking on doors. I want to charge a subscription fee of $10 / month to have continued access to these surveys.

Is this possible with Survey Monkey?

Must the surveys be hosted on Survey Monkey?

Can I host them myself and thereby restrict access?

Is there a way to configure Survey Monkey to block/unblock access to the surveys for a given user?

Suggestions?

The $10/month is a key part of how I will create and update these surveys to make them better, and to offer support to those in need of help.

Thanks.

I suspect you'd need to use the SurveyMonkey API to do this.

Ok, that's a task for another day. Right now I need surveys and I need them fast.

So, my concern is about validating a user has access to the surveys?

My model is there will be may survey "door knockers" armed with smart phones and iPads. The answers will come from the person who answered the door, but entered by the door knocker. I want to restrict access to those who pay the $10/month fee.

I could easily imagine (at first) simply logging into SurveyMonkey to add new access for a specific user, then I would log in again when that user has ended his/her subscription. There is not volume yet, so need for automation.

Does this fit the current model of SurveyMonkey?

Who is paying the fee? The salesperson?

You would theoretically give different salespeople, access to your surveys through "user accounts" which is a "team" feature. You can see the user accounts are only available with the Gold plan:

Activity based intelligence (ABI) requires access to all available sources of data. Recorded Future allows analysts to observe structured data on the open, deep, and dark web.

Yes, I already accepted I would need to part with $300. And to use their terminology, these are the collectors, right?

I would need to add/delete collectors since they would pay the $10/month for this access. This should be easy to handle manually, true?

At a later date, I could automate this as I create my own front end and integrate the SM API you provided.

No. Collectors are a different feature.
