Before setting up a business in a new region, it is necessary to carry out a market research to determine if it will be a success or a flop. It is better to identify challenges you likely to encounter early to be able to put mechanisms to counter the same. In the era of technological advancement and the rise of social media, the effective way to carry out a market research is using Twitter polls. To gain valuable insights regarding the consumer habits, you should tailor the poll question that will bring out their true self.
From the polls, it is easy to point out what the people are missing, why they despise the current product available to them, what consumers are looking for in the service or product you want to introduce and their preference if any. Such insights from Twitter polls help you test the water and ensure whatever you are introducing will make sense. Always start with a no or yes question to get the general assessment and move to detailed polls to get deeper insights. This is where the four based answer poll is vital now.
