We recently started to run a few Twitter polls and were astounded by the results!
Usually, we get a quite a few likes or retweets in the day, but then even content that worked for you previously may not work the week after and that’s why we found the so useful!
So here are some quick tips on how to create a Twitter poll!
First of all, go to the trending topics of the day and try to find something that may work in your niche. We’re looking for trending topics as these are what are currently being talked about and can give you a much bigger reach, however you can simply create one without using a trending hashtag.
So in the above post, we can see that the Grammys is currently trending. Now the trick is to work this around your niche. So maybe you work in fashion or beauty and you can link this trending hashtag to your brand. A good example would be, ‘what’s your favourite brand of red lipstick, MAC, Rimmel etc.’
So remember to add;
- Emojis – We all know imaged can double our engagement but in this case, we cannot use one so try using a couple of fun emojis to make your poll standout!
- Remember to add the trending hashtag!
- Also, add hashtags for the brands themselves and also other fan pages. It is likely fan pages will retweet your post and this could lead to much more engagement!
- Make it fun! Topics on popular culture and T.V shows seem to do the best so use your wit to twist this to work for you and your brand!
Ok guys, this was just a quick post on how well polls have worked for us. Good luck and enjoy!
