Duo On Air: How You Can Use An Interactive Quiz To Grow Your Business

If you are here, listening to this episode or reading through this post, you are likely tired of spending your limited time and effort creating compelling lead magnets? Or maybe you are looking to change the magnet you have now into something more engaging? Why? Because we all know and understand the importance of growing our email list, right!? But why does it have to be so complicated and slow?

The good news, it doesn’t have to be. In fact an interactive quiz might just be the easiest lead magnet you’ve ever built. One of the amazing reasons why we love working with Interact is because the platform helps to easily engage your audience, identify their pain points, and deliver the needed information to get the job done. So let’s dig into exactly how to create an interactive quiz — with a video tutorial!

What is a Lead Magnet?

Lead magnets are free products or services you can offer as an exchange for contact information (aka that shiny email address) from your prospective clients or customers. Whether it’s an ebook or a free PDF, these resources offer your clients something of value. Lead magnets are essential for building a client base, deepening your brand trust and engaging your audience. Building your email list without a lead magnet can be very difficult and slow. By offering your audience an answer to something they’ve been searching for, not only makes you an authority in your field, but it also brings in leads straight to your inbox.

You’ve probably used or seen many different lead magnets to grow your email list. Maybe you’ve even come across some of ours — 4 ways to find SEO keywords (most popular) or our monthly social content calendar with reel ideas and trending audio. They can come in so many different formats from a PDF guide or resource to a checklist or even a simple discount code email. And now one of our favorite types of lead magnets — an interactive quiz. Interactive quizzes are a little different from a typical lead magnet because what they offer is an engaging and insightful way for your audience (and you) to gain more information about what they truly need. 

What Are The Benefits of an Interactive Quiz?

  • With an interactive quiz, you can ask specific questions and offer more personalized solutions. Whereas traditional lead magnets are one-sided. You assume you are delivering the information your audience is looking for.
  • Deeper segmentation with your audience by categorizing their responses.
  • Gather more information about who your audience is.
  • Boost client engagement, especially if you have been hearing crickets lately.
  • More opportunity to showcase your brand personality and voice through a creative outlet with quiz questions and answers that actually sound like you.
  • Increase your email subscriber count organically, because quizzes are more interactive, engaging and just fun!

Overall, an interactive quiz can help increase the likelihood of attracting new clients and customers, addressing pain points, and presenting your content and services in a valuable and entertaining way.
