Some Fun Facts about Using Quizzes to Grow Your Business

Quizzes are the best new way to generate new subscribers for your business.

By using them, you can grow your email list, expand your reach via social media, and earn more money!

By adding an email capture form to your quiz, about half of the people who take your quiz will opt in to become email subscribers. This will result in an increase in sales for your business. The more subscribers you have, the more you will sell! (This is especially true if you utilize email marketing properly!)

On average, 10% of people who take quizzes share their results on social media, so you’ll have an increased presence on social media. This is great because others are doing your marketing for you! Thus, it will save you some money in advertising. Plus, it’s always great to reach new audiences!

By increasing your reach, you will gain new subscribers and customers, therefore growing your business.

How to Create a Quiz Using Interact

Interact offers a step-by-step process for creating a quiz.

When you first start, you are brought to a screen that says, “Let’s get started! Is this your first time making a quiz?” and it gives you two boxes to choose from: Yes or No.

If you say YES, it says, “We will walk you through the setup process. Would you like to use a pre-made quiz template you can customize? Or make a quiz from scratch?”

Most people will use a template at first. After you are an experienced quiz-maker, you can create a customized one.

Then it says, “Let’s find the right templates for you. What industry are you in?” It then gives you a bunch of options to choose from. Pick your niche and continue. Your options are Automotive, Beauty, Blogging, Business, Career, Coaching, Copywriting, DIY, Entertainment, Family & Parenting, Fashion, Finance, Food & Drink, Health & Fitness, Home & Garden, Marketing, Non-Profit, Photography, Software, Sports, Technology, and Travel.

You can choose whichever category you want, too, even if you are not in that niche! 🙂

The next step is to choose the type of quiz you want to create. Your options are Assessment, Personality, or Scored.

With an Assessment quiz, you test someone’s knowledge in fun ways. Each quiz question will have one correct answer. A sample question you could ask is: How much do you know about (fill in the blank)?

With a Personality quiz, you make your own version of a classic personality quiz. Each quiz-taker will see a personality type that applies to them and can be shared. A sample question you could ask is: What kind of marketing superhero are you?

With a Scored quiz, you make your own version of a scored quiz. Each answer has a score value associated with it and each quiz-taker will see receive a score that corresponds to a unique score range. A sample question you could ask is: What is your marketing IQ?

For my first quiz, I chose the category of blogging. I then chose the template that asked the question, “What Type of Writer Are You?” This is because I often write about writing… such as how to be a master writer, how to overcome writer’s block, etc.

I then played around with the colors and a few other things… and I created this quiz!

I also followed the instructions given to integrate it with MailChimp (my email service provider). I got stuck once and so had to read through this article on integrating Interact with MailChimp. But the problem was that I was using my account email to test it instead of my other email address.

I think this is very cool! Don’t you? It even has my logo in the bottom right-hand corner!

After I created this quiz, I embedded it here. Then I shared the link to my quiz on Facebook… and took my own quiz, to test it out!

Other Tutorials

I was going to do a complete tutorial on the steps I took to create my quiz, but Mindi Rosser already made one.

Plus, Judy Olbrych already made a video that clearly explains it! So did Cheryl Binnie. I have included both videos here.

And Beth Anne Schwamberger made a video that walks you through the Interact dashboard!


Beth also explains how to use quizzes in your blog or business.

How You can use Quizzes in your Blog or Business:

The following points are taken from Beth’s article on quizzes:

-If you sell baby products, create a “What kind of mom are you?” quiz. Then funnel each result into an email sequence that talks about your baby products that this type of mom would just love!

-If you sell jewelry, clothing, or accessories, you could make a “What’s your style?” quiz. Then, lead into an email sequence talking about which of your products is a good fit for them depending on their results

-Is your blog aimed at teachers? Use a quiz to show their “Classroom SuperStar Style.” Then send them to blog posts that match their inner rockstar, and show how your blog makes them better teachers.

-Do you create websites? Quiz potential customers on their brand or style or lack of! Then send them through a series showing how you can create a custom website that fits their needs or how you can create an entire brand for them, etc.

-Are you in direct sales? Find out all the ways someone is sabotaging their health or what their workout style is. Then send them into a relevant sequence that shows how you and your product can help them overcome their problem or discover great new workouts to get them out of a rut.

There are endless possibilities for how to use quizzes in your business. A well-made quiz that sends people to a fabulous email sequence is a great way to set your business apart from the rest.

  3. Hi Lorraine; Feel like I must have been living under a rock. Had no idea of the power of quizzes. Maybe it’s because the ones on face book are never accessible with my screen reader. I tried taking your quiz. I think I missed a couple of the questions because it said I’m not a writer. 🙁 We both know that’s wrong. 🙂 Great post especially the links to other sites. Thanks for sharing, Max

  8. Hi Lorraine,

    What a great description of Interact Quizzes you have done. People love to get involved when it comes to this and I can see how it can build an email list fast. Also how wonderful this is to interact with others on a fun basis. I was thinking how great this can be if it is set up to get information we want to know by a quiz. Something like “Is Facebook your number one social media place to be?” Then we can gather information and know weather or not to advertise on this platform just as an example. This is one great tool to build a brand. Thanks so much for the info!
