How to Create a Facebook Online Poll
Publishing a poll on Facebook is easy peasy. There are already existing poll applications that are user-friendly and trusted. Asking questions and getting answers is really instantaneous using these Apps. You simply need to setup the poll by adding a description, adding a page through which you want to publish the poll, then promote and share.There are three simple ways to make this possible. Read on to find out and try it for yourself.
Step 1. Get a Poll Creator App
There is no need for you to have an IT or programming know-how when it comes to creating polls on Facebook. You just need a poll creator in the form of an App – and most of them are for free. The created poll from these apps can be embedded onto your webpage or you can also embed directly to your Facebook account or page, email, or twitter. Facebook also has its very own poll maker which is easy to use as well. Setting this up is quite easy. Just add a description of what the poll is all about, input the question or set of questions you want to ask your audience, then share away. In order to publish the poll to your page, click on the “Add to Your Page” button and select your page from the dropdown list. You also have to choose a good image and think of a compelling title for your poll.
As mentioned earlier, there are various free poll creating apps. Here are some of them:
- Survey Monkey
- Kwik surveys
- Our poll creator
Step 2. Customize the Poll
You may customize the poll by changing its look and feel. Make sure that the colors and the images are attractive to a certain kind of audience you want to entice. But this can only be possible if you are embedding the poll to your site. If you are making a poll directly from the Facebook app, simply choose the appropriate image but take note of the copyright of the image/s you choose.
Step 3. Get Comments and Responses
Remind your target audience to participate in your poll. Set a schedule for your poll and start promoting approximately a week before to prepare them for what is up and coming. Stir their interests with your pre poll posts.
Do not just focus on Facebook, share away to any social networking sites or any available network or method friendly to you and to your audience, most importantly.
