Poll Factory - A New Approach to an Old Technique

Remember that ebook I wrote? That simple method to use email submits and polls to make money? I’ve found an easier way to create those poll pages. My ebook calls for hard coding the page, which works just fine, but what if you want to churn out 10+ pages an hour? Wouldn’t it be easier to just put your information into a script and have it auto-gen you a site? Well, one of my nice readers sent me a script that does just that: Poll Factory.

It’s just plain easy

Take a look at the admin panel. A three year old could navigate that interface. You just fill in a few fields, supply some keywords, copy the output, and you’re done. Here’s an example of a completed page. That one took me about five minutes to create, and that was the first time I’d ever used the software.

Installation is incredibly easy, just copy the files to your server and click ‘install’ (although I’d recommend reading the user’s manual first). After that, you’re good to go. The template is already there (and it comes in four colors), so you don’t have to do any real editing. Of course, if you’d like to edit the template, you can do that too (instructions are in the manual).

Features that I like

  • All pages come prepackaged with ‘About’ and ‘Privacy’ pages. That just oozes credibility.
  • The default template is pretty nice.
  • You can import RSS feeds to display under your question (helps your Quality Score).
  • You can specify meta tags and such during page creation.
  • The menu keeps all of your polls in one place, so you can add/change/remove them quickly and easily.
  • Keyword tracking!

Overall, I’d say it’s worth the $49 fee. I’ve always gotten a good conversion % with poll pages, and at ~$1.30 per email submitted, it won’t take long to pay for itself. If you know where to get your traffic, you can easily get $0.03-$0.05 clicks, so it’s possible to make a ridiculous amount of money with this method.

To buy or not to buy?

If you’re a coding master, or your don’t want to create a million poll pages, this product is not for you. However, if you need these pages in bulk, or don’t want to waste your time mucking around with HTML, I would definitely recommend this product.
