I'm going to skip the theatrics as to why you should be creating polls and surveys and jump right into exploring this awesome new feature. In this short demonstration, I will create a new survey from scratch, then show you how the resulting survey appears to the visitor.
When creating the survey, I have the option of showing the survey on a specific page or on any page after a specified number of page views. In this case, I opted to display the survey only on page test2.html. When a visitor visits the page, the survey will be displayed as seen below.
I enabled comments for this survey, which allows the visitor to give customized feedback. This feature is a powerful way to get additional details from customers regarding their choice and/or additional information that you may have not anticipated.
After answering my own test survey, I can go back to Stat Centric and review the results. You may notice that my comments are tied to my original answer, providing a context for both the comment and the answer selected.
Let's face it, our time is valuable and most people are very reluctant to spend 20 minutes answering a 3 page survey even when presented with incentives such as prize drawings, etc. By providing your visitors with a single, concise question, they are much more likely to take 10 seconds and respond. Created surveys appear at the bottom of your website allowing the user to answer, ignore it, or simply close it to opt-out. This provides a minimally intrusive way for users to quickly provide valuable feedback.
