Blogs To Conduct Market Research

We all love to be asked our opinions.  As a business, we like to know (or we should do…) what our customers and users of our products and services think.
Have you thought of using a simple poll on your blog or website to gather information or opinions?
An online poll can be added in seconds from sites such as PollDaddy or Survey Monkey for example. Most online poll sites offer polls which are easy to customise in design and layout. You can show the results as people vote – or hold off for a big reveal.
If you set up a poll you could then promote it across all your Social Network Platforms and then you are generating new, fresh content there.
You can use polls for marketing – find out what your customers think of a new product or what they thought of the products or services that they have had from you. You can use them as a way to build up a community feel for your site – what do your readers think of an issue of the day? You can use them to create a buzz around your site with an end of year awards poll. Use your imagination – you could really have fun with them!
How would you use and promote a poll on your blog or website and how could you make the feedback valuable to your business?
