PollCart simplifies e-commerce shopping polls, extending functionality to URL and referral links

PollCart simplifies e-commerce shopping polls with the new feature of automatic poll creation from any referring URL or a URL added to link.pollcart.com. Here are some use cases.

The “referrer” link use case (easiest)

Your e-commerce website has a number of pages, probably at least one for each item. You use includes like headers and footers for the navigation, but each page also has unique content.

PollCart’s past versions would require custom javascript to create a unique poll for each page. Now you simply add a link to your page for “https://link.pollcart.com” that might say, “Use PollCart to ask others” or “Ask one friend now with PollCart.” Any page with a link to “link.pollcart.com” becomes the subject of a PollCart poll when the user clicks on your item’s page and follows the link to PollCart.

While our competitors are thinking of more complicated ways to confuse your developers, we’re giving you permission to fire them. Don’t though, we’re developers, too 🙂

The “URL” link use case (easy)

Here’s the second new piece, a little more complex, but equally cool. If you want to add a PollCart link pointing to a particular item page somewhere besides that item page, like on Twitter or Facebook, you can simply add the item URL to the end of the “https://link.pollcart.com” URL. Like this, if you’re selling CBD oil for dogs:

Source Organic CBD Oil – 200 MG

You might have a URL like “https://market.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/products/cbd-oil-200-mg” – and say, no idea how to JavaScript or TypeScript or generallyScript a PollCart poll, all you have to do is this:

Add “https://market.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/products/cbd-oil-200-mg”

to “https://link.pollcart.com”

like this:

“https://link.pollcart.com/https://market.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/products/cbd-oil-200-mg”

So the final link might look like this. Close your eyes if you can’t stand the site of late 90s HTML.

<a href=”https://link.pollcart.com/https://market.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/products/cbd-oil-200-mg”>Ask others about Source Organic CBD Oil, poll your friends now</a>

Okay, the code part is done for now. No WordPress plugin required. No anyScript of anyKind. (Capitalization humor)

And if that URL thing is too much (believe me I can relate) then just put a link to “https://link.pollcart.com” in an included part of your websites like the header or footer and it will turn every page into a poll conversion waiting to happen.

Some details about how it works

To use the new functionality, simply add a link to https://link.pollcart.com on any page and PollCart will detect the referrer, creating a poll for that page. To get more specific, you can add a slash and the URL address of the desired product to the URL of the current page:

E.g. “https://link.pollcart.com/https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FMLZCR5″

Pretty cool, huh? You just add the entire URL completely unedited after a slash.

Try both links to see how effective adding PollCart’s referrer link or PollCart’s URL link to your e-commerce page.
