Tips for Creating an Effective Poll
Knowing how to create polls mechanically is not enough, how to get the audience interested in your polls is essential. Here, we give you some tips to design an ideal poll for any target.
1. Use a simple and friendly voice
Questions should be simple and easy to understand. At the same time, it should also be engaging enough for the audience to want to respond.
For example, If you were asked to develop a feature for a better interactive presentation, what would you choose? Then give 3 options: quiz feature, survey feature, and voting feature.
This will make respondents feel they are part of the decision-making process.
2. Keep the questions neutral
You may not know it yet, but polls should be limited to factual, neutral questions. Questions about personal or more complex opinions, or open-ended questions such as questions about religious views, should be used in the survey form.
3. Limit options
The more options that are presented, the more confused and difficult it will be for your audience to respond. So the number of choices should be limited to no more than four, including options like “Other” or “Do not want to answer”.
4. Avoid misleading questions
The aim is to keep the polls as objective as possible, so you can get the honest opinion of respondents. Avoid asking questions that are comparable to your competitors, or that are meant to belittle the other party.
