Wepolls.com Aims to Become Top Polling Social Network

Press release from: WEPOLLS.COM

Wepolls is a social polling network. Launched on May 1st, 2011, it has exploded with incrementally increasing traffic, new member registrations, and user generated content.

“Our mission is to find out what people think,” say CEO Robert Vinciguerra. “By asking a question on Wepolls and sharing it with friends, anyone can do just that.”

The focus at Wepolls is for users to create a poll that anyone can vote on. Polls can be shared on any social network, such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. These polls can also be embedded on blogs or websites to accompany an article.

“Competitors in the web polling space don’t quite reach the level of portability” Vinciguerra explains. “You have PollDaddy where anyone can create a poll, but it’s not social. Facebook has ‘Questions,’ but it only exists behind its walled garden. People need to be on Facebook to use it. Our polls can be taken by anyone, anywhere, if they’re a registered member or not.”

Since launching, Wepolls has welcomed over 200,000 unique visitors from 180 different countries. Combined they have generated over 1 million page views, voting on questions about everything from politics, to video games, to science, and everything in between.

Most of the traffic, 70 percent, comes from English speaking countries, the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Australia. However, a full quarter of traffic comes from elsewhere in the world, specifically Germany, France, the Philippines, and Latin America.

The young company has received $10,000 in angel investments. The average visitor votes on ten polls and spends eight minutes on the site.

In addition to creating and taking polls, Wepolls has several other features.

It incorporates a comment system with up and down voting. Members can follow others to get updates about their activities with the built-in newsfeed and via optional email alerts.

If someone follows you and you follow them back, then you become “wepals”; that’s Wepolls’ version of friends.

Registered users can even add their own options to polls if they don’t agree with the existing choices.

The most innovative feature is the “poll roll.” When someone takes a poll the site then suggests another poll right on the same page that it thinks they’ll be interested in. Many visitors spend upwards of two hours at a time answering hundreds of questions in the roll.

There are more features being added all the time. “We’re constantly listening to what our users want,” explains co-founder and CFO Craig Quiter. “Then we engineer their suggestions and requests into real tangible features. Wepolls is in a constant state of growth.”

Wepolls is a cutting edge polling social network with a mission to help you discover what people think.
