Twitter recently added a new poll feature to the social networking platform. These Twitter polls are designed to allow users to weigh in on all the topics they care about in just a couple of taps.
Twitter has long been a place where, if you want the general public’s opinion on anything from who will win the Premier League to which election candidate’s people are most likely to vote for. For poll creators, it’s a new way to engage with Twitter’s massive audience and understand exactly what people think. For those participating, it’s a very easy way to make your voice heard.
How do Twitter polls work?
In the past, Twitter users have conducted makeshift polls along the lines of: ‘RT for X or favourite for Y.’ Now, however, people will have the ability to create a two-button poll within the compose box that will remain live for 24 hours. Voting is anonymous, and there is no restriction on what polls users can participate in. Twitter has been rolling out the feature over the past number of days on iOS, Android, and desktop. Keep an eye out for the poll icon, which looks like a pie chart, in the compose box.
Here is an example of the new Twitter polls in practice –
At FCDM, we have always found asking questions has always been an effective way to boost engagement on Twitter, and these polls provide an easy way for our clients to do this. Consumers will also get a huge benefit from these new Twitter polls as they are more likely to engage with the polls than a straightforward question. This might be because it only requires a simple click or touch, but also because of their anonymous nature, allowing consumers to give feedback on products or services quickly and easily.
The lingering question is will this prove to be nothing more than a gimmick that will be quickly forgotten or have Twitter now added a feature that will be significant enough to kick start their renaissance? With constant Facebook updates, Twitter need to use the new Twitter polls as a launch pad to improving their current offering so as to boost their current offering.
At FCDM, we specialise in all areas of digital marketing including social media. Digital strategy lays a rock solid foundation on which all other digital marketing activities must be built on. Creating high performing digital strategies involves immense effort, critical thinking, research, analysis and some tough questions.

Many studies have been done, and many articles have been written, about how you can improve your Google ranking for your website in 2015. Google’s search engine uses a variety of methods, to determine which pages are displayed first in web users search results. It is of high importance to be one of the first results on Google, as web users don’t normally look past the first page.
Members of the FCDM team have undergone rigorous testing by Google and hold the prestigious title of being “Google Certified Partners” meaning that our team understand the inner workings of Google products and understand how to get the best Google ranking for our clients.
Tips to improving your Google rankingKeyword Phrases
A keyword phrase is, generally speaking, the words you think someone is most likely to put into a search engine to find your website.
If you were searching for your own website, what keyword phrase would you type into Google for each page?
Let’s look at an Independent oil company in Louth for example;
As it is an Independent company potential customers may not already be aware of them so they won’t be searching their name on Google. It is more likely that the potential customer will be searching a term phrase like ‘Order Oil in Louth’. If this keyword phrase has been added to the Independent oil company’s website they will show up in the Google ranking.
When creating your keywords it is important to think about what you would search yourself when looking for a similar product to your own. Google’s keyword planner
in AdWords will also give you suggestions of what keywords are being searched.
Optimize your titles, URL and Meta descriptions
This is probably the oldest tip in improving your Google ranking, but it is still one of the most important. When you are uploading a new page or article to your website you need to ask yourself the following questions;
Can I make it more descriptive?
Is it clear and easy to read?
Does it give an indication of what we do and offer without clicking on the website?
Is there a call to action?
Does it contain my keyword?
Examine your website using this way of thinking and if there is room for improvement in your titles and descriptions, this is your first priority and a great first step for getting better rankings. Without having these correct, the content you have spent your time writing will not be found as much organically on Google as you would like.
Test and measure
One of the easiest ways to improve your website is to monitor performance over time and refine your efforts accordingly based on what kind of content and strategies are working best for you. Using tools like Google Analytics to review how visitors are interacting with your website is of high importance. By recording visitor statistics after publishing new content, you can assess which topics, subjects and keywords are proving more popular, which posts get the most likes and how many leads they have generated.
Over time, these kinds of performance indicators can prove to be extremely useful. It will give you a clear indication of what route to go down when posting content and help your website improve its Google ranking.
Links, links, links
Building high quality backlinks from your own website is very important. Linking your blog posts with other content on your web is essential to help search engines like Google navigate around your website. It also helps the reader by offering them a user-friendly way to browse through your website and provide them with additional, relevant information.
It is worth noting however, you must keep things relevant and choose your anchor text wisely. There is no point putting in links to different parts of your website if it is not going to add to the blog you are writing. It is also very important that you share the link to the new blog or page on your social media platforms to encourage more people to view your website.
These tips won’t improve your Google ranking overnight, but together with hard work you will start to see results.

Follow our top 5 tips for a successful digital marketing strategy to get instant results
1. Make your homepage visually appealing
Web users have become increasingly impatient and studies have shown that they decide whether to stay on a site within the first 10 seconds of visiting. Users are no longer going to read through paragraphs of text. This means it is increasingly difficult for businesses to communicate their key messages.
To combat this, many websites are now using a combination of video and images to help them easily and powerfully communicate. Visual communication is powerful as has the potential to transmit large amounts of information and in a much shorter space of time. This is crucial when communication to impatient web users.
Having a visually appealing homepage has proven to decrease bounce rates, increase search rankings and boost online conversions.
In recent months we have launched a number of websites with fantastic home pages including:
2. Make it mobile friendly
The last few years have seen significant increases in the number of people accessing websites on smartphones and tablets. This is showing no signs of stopping meaning businesses can ill afford to ignore it.
Mobile visitors are even more important when you consider the fact that 9 out of 10 smartphone searches end in action. On top of this, since April 21st 2015, websites that are not mobile compatible will now be ranked lower in their search engine.
3. Focus on content
Marketers must now give buyers what they want – information that answers their questions and needs.
The best way to do that as part of a digital marketing strategy is through high quality and fresh content. Content that engages and satisfies what a buyer is looking for will be listened too and will be much more effective.
Fresh content is also an important SEO factor, with many companies now regularly blogging about their work or expert knowledge in their area.
4. Get social
Social media is where your audience are likely to spend a lot of time and interact with many businesses. If it’s not with your business, then it’s likely it will be with your competition.
Social is also an increasingly important SEO factor, so by not implementing an effective social media plan as part of your digital marketing strategy, you risk not only missing out on talking to your target audience, but also a decline in your search rankings on Google.
A powerful and cost effective way to enhance your audience and amplify your message on social media is to use social ads, such as Twitter or Facebook ads. These allow for powerful targeting of your target audience, and when combined with engaging content, can significantly enhance your audience and leads.
5. Use Google AdWords
Google AdWords is paid advertising or pay per click (PPC) advertising on Google. The way it works is simple:
• People use keywords (or search terms) to search for specific products and services
• If the keywords you’ve chosen match what people search for, your paid ad appears next to or above organic Google search results
• When people click on your ad, they’ll go to your website to learn more or buy
Paid advertising is probably the most direct, most effective, yet most complicated, parts to a digital marketing strategy.
