Go to Tochat.be
The first thing you need to do is to go to https://tochat.be/, which is the website where you can make your polls and surveys with the help of WhatsApp features.
When you go to Tochat.be to be able to make your polls, you first have to create an account, or if you already have one, you need to login. This allows you to keep track of your current and previous polls and surveys, see the results and the stats.
When you have signed in, you will see a couple of different options at the top of your screen. One of them says “polls”, which is the one you want to choose.
You can also explore the other opportunities on the site 🚀
Start creating your poll or survey
As soon as you press on “Polls” and afterwords press “create your own poll now”, you will have access to the tool, that allows you to create your poll or survey. As a matter of fact, you can do even more than just Polls and Surveys! 😮
As you see on the picture above, you can do more that just create polls and surveys. You can also create a quiz, if you want to try something different, be more creative or maybe try to engage your users in a different way, to try and get more people to participate.
There are a couple different and cool options, and to choose between them, simply just press on the one you want. Currently the poll option is chosen, but to change to survey, you just have to press survey. ❓
This way, you can easily choose between the different options available ✅
Start adding questions to your poll
Not you have chosen the form of data collection method you want, you can start adding the questions. Lets say you chose a poll, you can now add questions and following opinions.
In this example we want to find out, what app people are using, to communicate with their friends and family, and chose the following as options
- Facebook Messenger
A little advise: If you are only including 4 options, there might be some options, that are relevant for the users, but you didn’t inculde. Maybe these options are not relevant to you, but nevertheless, you should acknowledge the fact, that they are still an option. An easy way to do this is to add an option called “others” or “i use something else”. This way, you got that covered too.
When you are happy with your questions and options, you can go ahead and press “next step” where you can decide the duration of the poll and add your Company name and URL. You can also choose to hide your results from other users when they participate and add your logo to the survey, which makes for a way better design and user experience!
However, these two are premium features, which can only be used by premium members on Tochat.be. The premium features however are VERY affordable with only $20 a year, and a long range of options, such as creating widgets and payment links.
