Give People a Voice
Everyone likes to know that their opinion matters, but very little attention is ever given to people’s opinions. Change that by setting up a Text-2-Vote poll. Text-2-Vote polls are surveys sent to customers by text message that allow businesses to gather consumer responses. You can let anyone vote to decide on your next special, variety, or theme. When people know they have a stake in the decision, they’re more likely to feel engaged and support your business.
You can also use Text-2-Vote polls to get feedback in the form of a survey. Wondering how satisfied people are? Want to know how you can improve? You can ask quick survey questions via text to get instant results.
Using SimpleTexting’s Text-2-Vote Feature
After logging in to SimpleTexting, navigate to Apps > Text-2-Vote Contests > Add contest to get started.
Enter a name for your poll and choose which keyword you want to use. Then, fill out the Poll Question and Answer Choices fields, being sure to put each answer on its own line. SimpleTexting will automatically assign a response value (A, B, C, D, etc.) to each of the choices.
Finally, write a follow-up message that people will receive after submitting their answer. You can also send voting results to each participant if you’d like. Click Save, and you’re done.
Note: Text-2-Vote is for adding new subscribers to your SMS list by way of polls/surveys. We have a similar feature called Polling Subscribers, which is designed for people who’ve already joined your list.
