Updated over a week ago

You pour your heart into crafting an informative presentation, but is your audience truly absorbing the information? Inject a jolt of engagement with polls! offers a user-friendly way to incorporate polls into your webinar, transforming your session from a one-sided lecture into a dynamic and interactive experience.

Why Use Polls During Webinars?

Polls offer a treasure trove of benefits for both you and your audience:

  • Boost Engagement: Break the monotony of a lecture-style presentation! Polls inject a dose of interactivity, encouraging participation and keeping your audience alert and engaged.

  • Gauge Understanding: Unsure if your message is reaching the right audience? Polls allow you to assess audience comprehension in real-time. Based on the results, adjust your presentation to ensure everyone is on the same page.

  • Generate Discussion: Use poll results as springboards for discussion. Analyze the responses with your audience, fostering a more collaborative learning environment.

      4. Text Field - Use this to collect a single-word or short-sentence response such as name, street address, or city.

    4. Display results during on-demand - Mark this checkbox to include the results from the Live webinar in your On-Demand version.
