Your website has been up and running for a while now, but do you know what your audience thinks of it? If you find yourself constantly wondering whether your visitors are enjoying the content that you put out on a regular basis, a polling plugin can work to your benefit.
Here are 11 poll plugins that will help you understand your audience better.
This fully customisable plugin lets you gather your data and then prompts your visitors to share the results with their own networks (which will hopefully bring you even more visitors). Since each poll can have related polls that link to other articles, this plugin provides you with a fantastic way to promote your content.
