Tips for creating a poll

1. Randomize Answer Options

Randomizing answer order in polls helps to mitigate response bias that can occur when participants consistently choose the first or last answer options.

2. Keep questions short and simple

When making a poll, you should make sure that questions are short and clear. This will increase response rates and ensure your data is as accurate as possible.

3. Include N/A or don't know answer options

It’s possible that some respondents don’t agree with any of your answer choices. Providing a way to opt out ensures responses are honest and results are accurate.

4. Ask one question at a time

To collect the best quality data, your questions should be short, clear and ask one thing at a time. If a question is too complex, respondents may answer dishonestly.

5. Don't write leading questions

Leading questions are worded in a way that prompts respondents to select an answer. Question wording should be neutral to encourage truthful responses.

6. Balance scales

When writing scale options (e.g. Strongly Disagree – Strongly Agree), make sure you include an equal number of positive and negative options.

Free Online Poll Maker FAQs

What are online polls?

Online polls are single question surveys conducted to gather opinions or preferences from a targeted audience. They  can cover a wide range of topics, including political opinions, consumer preferences, feedback on products or services, market research, and more.

If you haven’t done so already, you’ll need to get started by creating an account. After that you’ll have full access to your dashboard, where you can create, copy, delete and manage all your polls.

With FreeOnlineSurveys, we consider surveys and polls to be the same type of project. So, don’t be confused when you don’t see a poll project type.

Simply create a new survey, add a single question (or more if you want to create a multi-question poll), and you’re ready to collect responses from your audience.

Absolutely! At FreeOnlineSurveys compliance is at the forefront of everything we do. All of our products (including our online poll maker) are fully compliant with the CCPA, GDPR and other data protection laws, meaning your polls are compliant by default.

Simply head to the Send section of your project, scroll to the embed option, and copy the code. From there all you need to do is paste the code into your website and your poll will appear in an iFrame.

If you’re using a CMS like WordPress or Wix, you can paste this code into an HTML block.

It’s super simple to share your polls directly to your social media profiles with FreeOnlineSurveys. Just head to the Send section of your poll and you’ll find a range of social media platforms to share your poll to, including:

Our online poll maker lets you add as many questions as you want, completely for free. On top of that, you can also choose whether to display multiple questions per page or show a single question at a time.

We’ve gone above and beyond for the amount of ways you can add media to your polls. Firstly, you’re able to embed videos from Vimeo or YouTube with a URL, which will display perfectly in your polls regardless of what device your respondents are using.

We’ve also create a multitude of ways you can add images to polls. You can select from a wide range of free background images or upload images from your own device. You’re also able to add images to display side-by-side with your questions, in the question field itself, and also use images as answer options with our picture-choice question types.

As you may have noticed above, our online poll creator supports a feature that allows you to prevent duplicate responses from the same device. This protects your poll from being manipulated by a single respondent.
