Polls, Contests and Site Giveaways: Add More, Without Doing More Work - Adding Polls
(Page 2 of 4 )
All of the HTML tutorials in the world won't help you when it comes to creating polls on your pages. Online polls are not created through HTML code but through scripts. Don't know how to write scripts for Internet pages? Don't sign up for the Web coding class just yet; there's a much easier way to put polling fun on your pages. Make sure your site supports scripts before you move forward. Many free sites do allow you to place scripts, so chances are good that you'll have no problems making new poll additions.
If you have an idea for a poll or survey and you want to include it on your site, there's no need for you to learn how to create scripts or even to pay a company to give you polling options. There are many Web sites out there which allow you to easily and quickly place polls within your own pages free of charge (and with very little effort on your part). Some of these sites are detailed below:
When you sign up for free membership with Vizu, you can create polls at your discretion for easy placement on your own site. You create the polls, but Vizu won't create too much work. Just give the site your URL and watch everything easily fall into place.
There's no sign up or registration required with UpMeter. All you have to do is fill out a single online form (which will include the question and answers you want to ask in your poll), place your URL address in the provided blank and you're finished. You're not required to provide your email address to get polls through UpMeter, though you can include this information on your form if you wish.
Opinion Power lets you create simple or complex online polls and full surveys with many different questions. You'll have to provide the URL where you want polls to appear, as well as your own email address, before your polls will be properly placed within your pages. Opinion Power allows you to get very extensive with your questionnaires, though it's probably best to try shorter polls on your site before moving on to large-scale surveys.
When you sign up for a free account with Poll Daddy, you can enjoy all sorts of polling options that will allow your visitors to interact and sound off on your site. Registration is required but free of any fees.
Ace Polls lets you enjoy a ton of options with your polls. You can choose colors, add pictures and truly customize your questionnaires to make them eye-catching and appealing. However, Ace Polls only lets you place your scripts on popular, blog-friendly sites such as MySpace and Live Journal. You will not have the option of choosing your own URL for these poll creations.
When you know how to add polls to your site, you can start learning more about the visitors who find your pages. All you have to do is come up with the questions, place your polls and start enjoying the results (like increased traffic and traffic interaction). Make sure to check your poll results often. Through online polls, you'll have a direct way to learn more about your visitors, and they'll have more reasons for visiting your site. Adding polls means adding traffic, and adding a new way for that traffic to get more from your site.
