Best practices and tips for creating a slack poll:

Focus on the audience

Verify you are asking a question that is appealing and relevant to the audience you share it with. Make sure you’re reaching your audience by considering additional platforms to share your quiz on. You could share it on any popular social media platform or messaging app and even on niche ones. For example, make it a Whatsapp poll, a Line poll, or a Discord poll as well as a Slack poll.

Keep it short

Keep the question and answers short so it is easy to quickly comprehend the poll and participate.

Use images

Adding an appealing image to the poll will improve the engagement rate dramatically. You can add an introduction image to the poll and you can also add images to each one of the answers.

Select answers carefully

See that the answers cover all the options and if not offer users to suggest their own answers. Verify there is no overlap between answers.
