How Popular are Web Polls in 2020?

In a world where more business is being conducted online than ever in history, web polling is an incredibly useful tool that shouldn’t be overlooked. In fact, as of 2020, web polls are more popular than ever and it’s not hard to see why.

What makes web polls so popular?

One of the reasons web polling is so popular right now is it can be done from anywhere in the world. Because there are so many meetings and events happening virtually, it’s important for the technology to keep up. With live polling software companies like Swift Polling, the demand for those efficient, reliable tools has been met.

How to use web polling

Being able to create web polls or even text polls in just a few clicks is important. Now that you can create these polls in under a minute with the right software, they’re more popular than ever.

For example, here’s how easy it is to create online polls with Swift:

First, you’ll log in and see an empty questions list. Click the "Create your first poll" button in the center or "Create poll" on the left-hand side to create your poll.

Then you’ll see a tab with three question types:

  • Multiple choice (poll)
  • Open-ended (useful for Q&A sessions)
  • Word cloud

Once you select your question type, you’ll type in your question. Next, you can click the "Launch" button to start your poll right away, or click or "Save & New Poll" to create more polls.

How can audiences vote in live polls?

Another thing that makes web polls so popular is how easy it is to take part in them. If your audience has to type in a long link or text a complicated number to participate, your engagement numbers will be low.

It’s important to provide your audience with a number of ways to participate in polls. Whether it’s SMS polling, web polling, Twitter polls, or even PowerPoint polling, Swift gives you all the tools you need to create an excellent experience both for you and for your voters.
