How You Can Use Our Poll Maker
Small businesses, brands, publishers, students, and teachers use online polls to connect with their audiences, learn from them, and grow their following. Here are some popular poll use cases to inspire you
Use a Poll to Boost Engagement
Publishers use opinion polls and image polls to interact with their readers and boost engagement on their sites.
People love to share their thoughts on topics they care about, especially when all it requires is one click. Our polling tool is built with engagement in mind.
Gather Leads With a Poll
Brands and publishers use polls as part of their lead-generation strategy.
Adding a lead form immediately after the vote and before showing the results can give you 5 times more leads than a regular lead form.
Get Quick Feedback & Insights
Many of our customers use polls to collect useful insights quickly and easily.
Polls give you instant feedback, require minimum effort from your audience, and provide direct, specific, and reliable information.
All you need to figure out is what to ask.
Use Live Polling for Contests, Votes, & Competitions
Educators and marketers use live polls to create contests and competitions that stand out.
Our voting poll maker includes all the features you need for a challenging and exciting poll competition. Contest-focused layouts, cheat-vote blocking mechanisms, social sharing integrations, random answer displays, and more.
Generate Ad Revenue
Advertisers and marketers generate ad revenue by integrating ads into the interface of their poll. Integrated ads get higher click-through rates and as a result, increase ad revenue by up to 500%. Add a poll to each of your articles to increase your ad revenue.
Use a Poll for Audience Segmentation & Remarketing
Many organizations use our poll maker to segment their audience and then remarket to them.
For example, if you sell sporting equipment, you could ask participants what type of sports they do. Based on their answers you could then send them relevant offers via email or pixel-based retargeting.
With a quick poll, you can maximize conversion by making sure your offer is relevant.
How to Create an Online Poll in Seconds
Creating an effective poll is easy. Follow these simple steps and your poll will be up and running in no time.
Define your objective & target audience
Before building your poll, figure out what you want to achieve and who you would like to engage. Your goal and target audience will influence the question you ask, your answer options, as well as your poll design, settings, and sharing strategy.
Ask one question that counts
Open our simple poll creation form and add your question or poll title. Your poll question or title should be short, clear, and evocative so that it catches your audience’s attention, piques their curiosity, and ensures they understand it at first glance.
Polls are designed to reach a broad audience with a single question. If you have more than one question to ask you may want to create a survey instead.
Add answer options
Now it’s time to set up your answer options:
- Select an answer layout. If you want to make an image poll, a video poll, or a head-to-head go for a multiple image layout. If you want to offer several textual answer options select the standard or thumbnail list form and add a cover image or video to draw attention.
- Define the type of poll. Do you want poll takers to choose a single answer, multiple answers, or add a custom answer option? Select the format that corresponds best with your objective.
Customize anything with our poll maker
Configure the settings that are relevant to you. You could block repeat voting, set a deadline, customize the look & feel, randomize the answers, and redirect to a certain web page.
You could also add a lead form to collect contact details. If you like, you can save your lead form for future polls, integrate it with Mailchimp or Hubspot, and receive email notifications whenever new leads come in.
Share your poll with your audience
That’s it! Your poll is officially ready. The next step is to click on ‘publish’ and go to ’embed & share’, where you will see all the different sharing options you can choose from.
You could embed it on your site, share a poll link on any social channels, or conduct an email poll by sending it to your email lists. Now all you need to do is sit back and watch the responses roll in.
Hundreds of Integrations
Send your email leads to Mailchimp, sync responses with Google Sheets. Get it all done automatically.
