The primary goal of a website is to keep users as much as possible on it. Well, making money is also a leading goal, but this is only achievable if we keep existing users on our websites and attracting more and more. I have the pleasure of presenting you a greatly designed, fully responsive plugin for creating surveys on your website. This way, you can interact with users the way you like, get an idea on their opinion and act upon the information when implementing changes on your website.

Chapter 2: Install the plugin.

Chapter 3: Place the plugin on your website.

You can place the plugin on the front-page of your website. To achieve that, you need to:

The other option allows you to place the plugin on a post that you create on your website. To achieve that, you simply need to enter the following code, wherever you wish on your post:

[powr-survey label=’MY LABEL’]

where you only need to change MY LABEL, depending on your choice.

Chapter 4: Register a POWr account.

Access your website and locate the widget for the plugin on the front-page. You need to click on the gear icon at it’s top-right corner.
