Best practices for creating a Joomla Poll

Focus on your audience

Present a poll question that is interesting and is appealing to your audience

Add an image

A great image helps spice up the poll and attract voter attention to it.  You can add an introduction image to the poll, and also assign an image to each of the answers.

Make it easy to answer

Ask a question that is short and simple. Verify the answers cover all the options and that there is no overlap.

Show result only after voting

Voters will be curious to discover the result and therefore there is a higher chance they will participate.

If you want to ask more than one question in a fun and engaging way consider making a Joomla quiz or a Joomla survey. If you want to ask a series of questions all on one screen you can also create a traditional Joomla form.
