SodaHead Polls

Quickly and easily create free, customized polls for your blog with the best WordPress poll plugin available.

How can I better engage my audience with polls?

Ask high-level questions

Don't make questions too specific. Ask about the broader topic highlighted by a current event. For example, instead of asking "Do you like Kumquats more than Plums?" you may ask "Do you like to eat exotic fruits?"

Don't ask biased questions

Phrase your Poll Question from an objective standpoint so people from all sides of the discussion can participate. For example, you don't want to ask a Poll phrased "Is Red the Best Color Ever?" and give only two answer choices: "(A) I Love Red!" and "(B) I hate colors". Your poll won't do well and you lose out.

Have a daily poll

Create a relationship with your audience so they visit daily. Write about the results of the previous day's poll so they know their votes matter. Voting only takes a few seconds, and your audience will visit everyday just to participate and make their opinions count.
