IM Pollster

Have people answer poll's on AOL Instant Messenger

How about an Internet Service that gets people (mostly from a young demographic) to give a website their Screenname, so that an IM bot can send them poll questions maybe once a day, and after answering the question they have the chance of winning some kind of prize. This would generate a lot higher percentage of participation than banner ads, (and if limited to once a day would be less annoying). Also the whole system could be easily automated, with currently existing software.
