Tips for Creating a Mailchimp Poll or Survey:
Follow these steps to make your polls and surveys shine.
Start by thinking about your audience, who they are, and what information you would like to get from them. If you are unsure you know who your audience is, start by asking that!
Make Your Mailchimp Poll Short
Remember that the fewer questions you ask, the more responses you will get. Try to select short & simple questions and answers so it’s easy to understand the questions and quickly answer.
Make It Easy to Participate
Verify that the answers to a question cover all the options and that they do not overlap. When needed, offer users to add their own answers.
Select Appealing Questions
Try to make your questions juicy, a boring question will get fewer responses than a “lively” one.
Make Your Mailchimp Poll Visual
Integrate inside the poll or survey images to boost engagement. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. Images can also add context to the questions and answers.
Customize The Look & Feel
Select a theme that fits your brand or site. You can customize the colors and select a font, or use CSS override to set all look & feel.
Polls & surveys offer a great opportunity to gather leads since the contact information gathered is associated with the poll/survey answers.
