For everything from fun questions like “What game should I play next?”, to intense ultimatums—“Should I break up with my boyfriend?”—polls are responsible for some of the most engaging content there is. They’re an indispensable tool for creators to involve audiences in the creation of content, instead of just its consumption.
YouChoose, a new Link in Bio app from Koji, takes basic polls to the next level. After the poll ends, YouChoose lets you follow up with a video, and everyone who voted is notified and can watch the result (and sometimes, the fallout) of their choices.
The best part is that all of this happens right on your Link in Bio, so you don’t need to worry about your followers joining some other app and getting distracted by other content. Once they’re done engaging with your poll, they end up right back on your Link in Bio and can explore all your other apps and links. This translates to more time spent engaging with your content and your brand.
YouChoose is a fundamental app, and can be used for many different things. Here are a few ideas to help you make the most of this new app.
Invite your audience to participate in shaping your content. The next time you have a decision to make, use YouChoose to let your audience decide. Few things are more exhilarating for an audience than the opportunity to make an impact in your content and your daily life. The next time you have a decision to make, add YouChoose to your Link in Bio and let your audience decide.
- What game should we play in our next stream?
- Do you dare me to eat the fried crickets or the live octopus sushi?
- Should we fill up a bathtub with Coke & Mentos or Resse’s Puffs & Milk?
2 – Get To Know Me
Let your audience answer questions to see how well they know you—then record a video revealing the correct answer. Not only are you creating content that can be shared in other places (consider later using the results to create a compilation video like, “10 Things You Didn’t Know About Me”), you’re building a closer relationship with the people who care about you.
- Do you think I’m a morning person or a night owl?
- Would I be more likely to order a Steak or Tofu?
- Is my hidden talent burping the alphabet or beatboxing?
- On Sunday mornings, do you think I go for a hike, or sleep in?
You can use the YouChoose App to create an interactive story—Bandersnatch style—where your supporters choose what happens next. Once the event is over, you can use the full video as content for all of your social platforms.
Show part of a clip and let your audience vote on what they think is going to happen next. Then, post the full clip as your video response when the poll ends. This is a fun interactive game—and maybe there’s a bonus if your audience guesses correctly.
5 – Real or Fake?
See if your audience can tell which photo or video option is true. If you like editing photos and videos, this can be a fun format to showcase your skills.
With YouChoose, you’re giving your supporters an interactive format that brings you closer to one another and makes them more connected to the things you do and the content you create. We’re excited to see how you use the app!
