Let's say you run a company called Brute Bars. You make protein bars for post-workouts. They're delicious.
Why'd I bother mocking this up? I was probably putting off doing something more important.
Now let’s say it’s Halloween, and you want to tweet something with a coupon code. You draft two tweets, but recognize that one will almost certainly lead to more sales than the other.
You could just guess which is better, but if you want to make an informed decision, here’s what you can do:
1. Put in some context so that your options will make sense, and then enter your options.
2. Decide if you want to pay for responses or work for them. If you want to pay for them, purchase some credits, pick how many responses you want, then skip to step 6. Otherwise, proceed, my fellow broke-ass entrepreneur.
3. Take other users’ polls. Use the comments field to explain your reasoning or offer suggestions. Keep taking polls until you get the desired number of responses to your poll. You can leave the site and come back if needed. Some responses may still trickle in while you’re gone, but you’ll get the most responses if you’re actively taking polls on the site.
4. Click on Active Poll to keep track of responses coming in
5. Click the blue arrow for a complete look at responses (also accessible through My Polls)
6. Click on the Comments tab to review comments.
7. If you’re satisfied with the number of respones, go tweet the best damn Halloween-themed Brute Bar message ever. Otherwise, you can purchase additional responses, or earn them by taking more polls.
