Digital Content

GeoPoll has announced the launch of GeoPoll On Demand, an online, self-service portal which allows anyone to create and send surveys through our mobile platform in Africa.

"We're excited to announce the newest product in GeoPoll's lineup: GeoPoll On Demand, an online, self-service portal which allows anyone to create and send surveys through our mobile platform to GeoPoll's database of over 200 million users in Africa and Asia," read an email sent to CIO East Africa by a GeoPoll representative.

"GeoPoll On Demand delivers data in just 1 day and surveys start at only $3.00/respondent, making it faster and cheaper than ever before for anyone, from Universities and NGOs to commercial brands, to conduct SMS surveys in Africa." The email continued.

According to a post published on the official GeoPoll website, GeoPoll On Demand is an online portal that allows you to select a sample, write survey questions, and get data back in just one day.

"GeoPoll On Demand supports many question types and survey routing. You can write as many questions as you like, although we recommend under 15 questions per survey," the post read.

Surveys are sent by SMS and are completely free to the respondent, which ensures any phone can receive our messages, even if it isn't connected to the internet, is turned off, or doesn't have any airtime credit.

Once you submit your survey, the GeoPoll team reviews your questions and may suggest edits to optimize your survey for mobile respondents. We then schedule and send the survey to your selected sample. As results come in, you can see them in real-time in your GeoPoll dashboard, and once we've reached your desired sample size we'll send you an email. Results are automatically loaded into your GeoPoll account as both an interactive dashboard, and a raw data file for download.
