How to use Twitter Polls

- [Voiceover] Hi and welcome to another episode of Weekly Marketing Tips. I'm Brad Batesole, and this week, I'd like to talk about using Twitter polls as a new way to engage with your Twitter followers. If you want your followers' opinion on anything, what to cook for dinner, which of your products is their favorite, what feature you should build next, you can get quick answers by using Twitter's poll feature. It's super easy to get started, from either desktop or mobile. In this movie, I'm going to be setting up a poll using my desktop computer. Now I've already logged into Twitter and I selected the Compose Tweet option, in the upper right hand corner.

You can see that we have the standard box here that we can start typing out our Tweet, and below that, you'll notice that we have a new option to add a poll. I'm going to select this and we can add some choices. Here we can default with two choices, or we can select the plus option down below, which will give us additional choices. So let's start at the top, I'm gonna ask a question. Have you been using Twitter's new poll feature? For the first choice, I'll say, Yes, No, and for the third choice, I'm going to say Wait, Twitter has polls? Now you'll notice that if I type too much, Twitter's going to give me a little red box behind the text and that let's me know that we've typed too much into that space.

So, I'm going to delete some information there and now we meet our Twitter character count. From here, we can select the poll length. Here, the first option is Days. We can select this to say, Two Days. We can also choose Hours and Minutes and, when you're ready, simply choose Tweet. I'll refresh the page and we should be able to see our latest Tweet. And here we can see that my poll has been posted, but I haven't seen any votes. As people interact with this poll, you'll notice the votes number will change, as will the percentages for what people vote on.

Give Twitter polls a try and see if you can collect valuable data from your audience in an interactive and fun way. Thanks for checking in this week, as always, I'd love to hear from you. So let me know what you thought about this week's episode. You can reach me on Twitter, via @bradbatesole or, on email, I'll see you next week.
