What are Questions to Engage your Customers With?
When you think about it, it sounds easy at first but do you really have any concrete idea on the type of questions to engage your customers With? Lets understand that even though not all questions are equal.
I put together this list of effective questions that will make your fans exciting and down to answer anything you ask, which will make you very popular.
Question 1 – Simple
A short and simple question to ask.
What is your favourite ____________?
What would you do if you win the lottery? 1,000?
Remember that these types of questions are basically limited only by your imagination, so start thinking and ask anything you want !
Question 2 – Yes/No
This is a very basic question as well to get your fans engaged.
Do you think _____________ will be a great TV show? Yes or No?
Do you think it will be sunny tomorrow?
You can prompt your fans with the “Yes or No?” question at the end so they know what you are expecting from them. We also think that if they know all they have to do is answer with one word they will be more likely to answer.
Question 3 – Either/Or
We like these types of questions because this gives your fans the ability to have two options, asking which they prefer.
