The initial results of our first GoPollGo survey suggest that Pinterest is the popular choice to be added to the HootSuite App Directory next.

Meet Jordan Ng, HootSuite’s Integration Partner Manager. Jordan is a key member of the Business Development team, the highly strategic Owls who champion roll-outs of new apps into the HootSuite App Directory. When I first met with Jordan, it was to learn more about the Directory, but our discussion has given rise to a social survey with one of the most recent additions, GoPollGo.

Always looking ahead, Jordan likes to get feedback from our friends and users on which app HootSuite should integrate with next. “User feedback has a heavy influence on the App Directory release roadmap. If an integration provides end-user value and helps us reach our company goals, we move forward,” says Ng. “We make that choice based on user feedback from many channels, including social media polls, so GoPollGo is a useful addition to the mix.”

Gathering Public Opinion

What better way to test our newest GoPollGo survey app, than by creating a live poll question.

“Which Top Requested App Do You Want to See in the HootSuite App Directory Next?”

We’re asking you to choose your favorite app out of a list of potential suspects: Pinterest, Blogger, WordPress.org, Google Reader, Gmail and Vimeo. Within the first few hours, we had some data coming in, but we are naturally hungry for more. Here’s where our HootSuite Dashboard is able to flex its muscle.

“Bringing in GoPollGo’s poll publisher into the HootSuite dashboard means you can create and distribute your polls to your social networks with less clicks” says Ng. “GoPollGo is a powerful way to gather and track public opinion, quickly.”

Promoting our poll through the HootSuite dashboard (First step: Installing GoPollGo via the App Directory), our poll is significantly amplified at optimal viewing times by scheduling social messages through select channels. After our social messages go out, watch the number of views and votes increase exponentially. What was once an internal discussion between two is now the sounding board of many, and we look forward to hearing your opinion.

Want a say in which app comes out next to the HootSuite App Directory?  Vote in our live poll. We want to know how you’re using GoPollGo. Stay tuned for our next App Wave roll-out.

Pinterest is the single most rapidly growing social media channel we use given the quality of engagement and match do our key demo. When can we expect this to be available on hootsuite?

What I realy don't like about App Directory that all new apps are just streams in HootSuite window not fully integrated in platform. No scheduling, no teams, no fun :(

Hope one day HS will come to Russia with VK.com support, and our overly demanding users won't be dissapointed.
