Polls Are Old News

To poll the audience has become almost cliché at conferences. Here we take a look at how to breathe life into this common activity.

Polls have an undeniable utility. In addition to providing you with valuable feedback and insights into your audience, they also help engage the audience at your event. Polls give them a way to interact with you directly.

But are polls losing their effectiveness? In this article, we explore how polls are being used today, what their issues are, and how you can find a solution.

The Current Situation

The majority of conferences today poll the audience to gather opinions on the topics being covered. It’s a good move. Audience interactions have been shown to boost engagement, which can be particularly handy for people who are hosting remote or hybrid events where getting people involved might be something of a challenge. 

The problem is saturation. The more polls are used, the less of an impact they ultimately have. But while this technology has grown a little stale over the years, that’s not to say that it needs to be put to bed entirely. The right polling technology can still excite audiences and add a wow factor to your next event.
