Want to boost your YouTube channel views, and exposure, and increase your audience engagement?
YouTube polls can turn your regular YouTube videos into helpful subscriber feedback tools!
But, how to make a YouTube poll?
What are YouTube Polls?
Essentially, YouTube polls are online polls created by the YouTuber to share viewers’ opinions and responses. Results can be shown in real-time to the creator and the audience.
Created through the YouTube Community, polls are a great way to gain knowledge and use it to your advantage.
For instance, if you’re running a reaction YouTube channel, you might want to know what your target audience wants you to watch and react to.
So, you can create a poll and ask them exactly that! Here’s an example:
Which show should we watch and react to next?
- Show A
- Show XYZ
- Show B
Whichever one gets the most votes will be what you watch next!
