How to use Twitter Polls to Increase Twitter Engagement

. 3 min read

Twitter polls are an easy way to interact with your audience, get creative, and understand people’s opinions. Twitter polls will help you discover more about your audience while letting your Twitter account shine. When the poll is over, all participants receive a push notification, which helps to bring them back to your content.

You know the beauty of Twitter polls are that there are no wrong answers. Without the pressure of coming up with something unique on their own, users are more likely to engage as it’s an open question with given possible choices to choose from.

Need a little inspiration on what to ask? Here are few ways to incorporate polls into your strategy:

Ask for Feedback that helps your Business Strategy

Twitter polls are quick and easy. They will help you take business decisions by getting feedback from the audience about any subject you’re pondering upon. You can ask a variety of questions, from which product updates they’d like to see to what type of content they’d like you to Tweet.

Discover Product Preferences

To understand what your crowd’s favourite product is, take a poll.

#ProTip: You can determine the duration of your poll- from a set amount of hours to 7 days. If you’re running a poll for a specific event, select the time frame that coordinates best.

Tap into Trending Topics

Everything happens on Twitter, from breaking global news to local events. Therefore use this to your advantage by engaging with your audience with Twitter polls. Include event hashtags to widen your reach and connect with people chatting about a specific moment.

Take Advantage of Timely Events

One of the best ways to increase your Twitter Engagement is through using polls for timely events- holidays, sports events, news stories, viral hashtags and so on.

Because Twitter users are already tweeting about these types of events organically, using polls to entertain them or add to the conversation is a strong strategy.

To show you in action, here is an example of Domino’s that newsjacked an event by  using polls:

During one of presidential debates, Domino’s decided to tap into the conversation by posting the following poll:

By using a timely event, Domino’s effectively tied the conversation around the debate back to the brand to entertain its followers.

Product Feedback

Twitter polls give you a quick snapshot view on your own offering, be it software or food.

Ask your customers to help you with comments with their vote for some extra insight. It will be great if you go back to their comments after implementing their suggestion.

Final Words:

Polls can spark interesting and entertaining discussions as well, as all the voters debate the answers underneath the tweet. Then you’ve got a perfect chance to interact with your followers directly.

In the end, they’re free to create and don’t take much time. So why not?
