Polar, the social polling app, aims to give your audience a voice by launching its free self-service solution for publishers. Polar has rethought opinion polls for the mobile age. The company claims that publishers using Polar get over 100x more contributors than those just using comments.
Like many of us, Polar has noticed that filling out forms online is a pain — especially on mobile. By adding Polar to your site, you don’t have to count on radio buttons, checkboxes, or text fields to drive engagement on your sites. Polar polls make participation simple, fast, and fun by selecting photos in a poll format in a much more user-friendly experience.
Results in real-time
Polar also collect insights from your readers and lets you watch the results in real-time. You can track votes as they happen around the globe and see how many people engage with Polar polls on your website. Polar polls are responsive, created for many formats. Polls are designed to fit your site — no matter where it’s seen. On mobile, desktop, and beyond we provide your audience with a simple, instant way to tell you what they think. Plus, the polls look beautiful on any device.
According to techcrunch.com, Polar suggests that using its polls can help publishers increase reader engagement exponentially when compared to traditional comments. Leaving comments, after all, tends to take a bit of work, while just clicking a poll is pretty easy. Judging from the data Polar has shown us, the ratio of comments to poll participation is often 1 to 1,000.
