Here are some poll ideas to help you make your team meetings more interactive. Your online audience will thank you for this.

  1. Who do you think is fit for the position?
  2. What process is the hardest to tackle?
  3. This quarter, where should we focus our resources?
  4. How would you rate your performance?
  5. Any new ideas for marketing and sales conversion?

NOTE: When the poll votes are tallied and revealed, always follow up on the results and use them to spark a discussion. Even better if there is a significant difference of opinion. Encourage people to explain why they voted on a specific answer, or to expand on their poll responses. This is where the chat room comes in handy.

Online events and webinars poll ideas

Webinars and online events can be quite impersonal and difficult to interact with audiences. Oftentimes, the presenters don’t even get to see their audience members. Therefore, polls are a great way to connect with your audience and get valuable feedback. You can use polls to ask questions and gauge opinion, or to get ideas for your next presentation. Explore these poll questions for inspiration.
