Like on any other social forum, polling helps LinkedIn users to make online discussions by putting questions and knowing other’s opinion on that ( but in a concise way). Through online voting polls, LinkedIn users can conduct online targeted research, know reviews of professionals on a new product or service they are going to launch in the market, or ask people what they would like to have as an offer product.
Due to the significance of polling on LinkedIn, we decided to find some ways to let you create polls on LinkedIn. And here are we, with 5 free ways to tell you how you can create poll on your LinkedIn account.
Let’s have a look on these free ways, one by one.
