Have you ever used a poll before? If you’ve not, today’s post is perfect for you.
Polls are a good way for bloggers to find answers to questions, try out new things or just feel the pulse of the online tribe.
Here are a few ways you can use polls for your blog.
To try out a new blog segment
Are you thinking of introducing a fresh segment on your blog but you are not sure how your audience will take it? Try taking a poll. You can do a pilot post on your blog and create a simple poll asking your readers to vote for or against the new segment. This is a bit better than asking them to leave a comment because it gives you the results without you having to count manually who is for or against the addition.
Top notch ideas on how to improve the blog
Tired of second guessing or doing it on your own? Ask for help. Ain’t nothing wrong with that! If you need ideas on how to improve your delivery, design or approach you can create a poll to ask your followers. Most of them would gladly chip in a thing or two. Besides your audience’s advice is priceless especially the honest and sincere ones.
What you should remove from your blog
This may be a bit painful especially if you do not agree with some of the suggestions but honest and sincere answers never hurt anyone right? The worst that could happen is that you’d reject the suggestions and move on. On the other hand, you may be getting valuable feedback on how to make your blog more likeable.
Either way, polls are a great way to engage your audience in a fresh way.
