How do Surveys and Polls help your business?
Be it a survey or a poll, you will be able to get valuable feedback from your customers via this method than emails and ratings.
Keep yourself in the place of your customer. Will you respond to an email sent by site asking for feedback or will you rather answer a poll that pops up when you are on the site? To be honest, many people don’t even check their emails regularly unless it is highly important. And many emails never make it out of spam.
So, creating a WordPress poll that contains questions tailored to suit your intent is the best way to gauge public opinion.
