It takes real effort to create a PowerPoint presentation that is outstanding and represents something unique for your audience. Happily, we have a great solution for you: Embed real-time polls in your presentation with the help of the innovative live polling app Swift Polling. We can show you what you can do with it and how it works.
Here are some tips that will help you become a real PowerPoint polling pro:
In order to engage your audience, you need to pull people into your topic. That’s why it is beneficial to create some polls and embed them right in the first slides of your presentation in PowerPoint online. All you need to do is to create a question about your topic, provide some options, and let your audience choose the one that seems right for them. You have an option to show them the correct answer (if there is one) after they vote. This will be a great start for your presentation.
There are cases when audience members just want to freely express their thoughts about a topic. For this case, it is better to use open-ended questions. Swift Polling allows you to create a question and enable the audience to send responses through their smartphones with a text poll. The texts will appear in on your PowerPoint slides in real time and everybody will be able to see the messages sent by other participants. You can also use open-ended questions to collect feedback from the audience at the end of your presentation.
Word Cloud Embed
This is one of the most unique ways to present your audience’s feedback. The participants send their answers in a text. In that very moment, a word cloud appears on a slide showing the words from their feedback, with the size of each word indicating its frequency or importance. The larger and the bolder the word in a word cloud, the more times it was mentioned by the audience. Word cloud embed will make your live audience polling much more interesting and colorful.
