Using Vevox in different scenarios
Olivia uses Vevox extensively in various different ways, all of which help her to keep people engaged and ensure that sessions are interactive. Olivia will use Vevox polling during a meeting when she needs to get a quick feel of sentiment towards a certain subject, and she says that it’s super helpful being able to seamlessly run a quick Vevox poll – and feels that attendees themselves also definitely appreciate Vevox polls being used.
Collecting feedback is also made much easier through using Vevox, according to Olivia. She finds it really easy to create surveys and likes how quickly she can set them up. The ability to track who has and hasn’t answered or completed the survey questions is another feature that Olivia greatly appreciates.
Gathering feedback via a Vevox survey is very powerful
Vevox as an icebreaker
Olivia will use Vevox in small groups as an icebreaker, to warm people up at the start of a session or when she is dealing with a group of people who do not know each other – this is really helpful in getting people feeling more comfortable and confident.
Vevox is great at capturing comments and contributions from those who may not feel confident enough to contribute without a polling tool
Olivia believes Vevox provides some comfortability to those who are more shy or reserved, as the anonymity allows people to feel more confident and contribute freely during a group meeting.
