Introduce Slido to your audience

Introducing Slido is very important for getting your attendees on board and having them use the tool during your event. Firstly, make sure your participants know the Wi-Fi login details. 


Introduce Slido at the start

Let your participants know how to join the conversation by following these three simple steps:

  1. Ask people to open their browsers
  2. Navigate them to slido.com
  3. Tell them to enter the #eventcode of your event

 

Run a warm-up poll

Run a warm-up poll to give people a reason to join right from the start. It’s a great way to help them get familiar with Slido and use it for the rest of the event. From our experience, the most popular type of poll for this purpose is a multiple choice poll with 3 to 5 options. Also, a nice word cloud can make a big impression. 

Here is a great example of how to introduce Slido at a live event using a warm-up poll: 


You can also use the following introduction script and print it out for your moderators or chairs. Simply download the PDF here.
