When I was contacted by Josh, from interact Quizes, I had 57 subscribers to my site. After just 13 days after my quiz went live, I gained over 200 new subscribers! And it is growing exponentially every day. If you are looking for meaningful engagement and new email subscribers for your company or blog, then interact Quizzes might be just what you are looking for.
In this post I will walk you through exactly how you get started and get your first quiz up and running so you can decide if it is right for your site. I will try to answer all the questions I had when I first got started.
What is interact?
Interact is a powerful quiz platform that makes quiz creation and integration easy. You see these kinds of quizzes everywhere; on social media, blogs, and even well known company websites. The reason you see them all over is because people love to take them! Remember when you were a teenager and it was always so fun to see what celebrity was most like you or what kind of House you would live in when you grew up? The quizzes you create for your website can be fun and whimsical or they can give you valuable information about your clients. Not only can you create quizzes with interact, but you can also create giveaways and polls.
Does it integrate with my site?
Yes! Once you have created your quiz you can place it anywhere you want on your site. If you use WordPress, there is an easy to use plugin that makes integration a snap. Or you can copy the code given to you and place it right into the HTML for your page. This is the route I went and it took less than 1 minute. (And I don’t know a lot about code.) I created a blog post to place the quiz in, (you can see that here), but I have also used the quiz on social media to engage with my audience there. The possibilities are limitless. It was so easy to add to my site and had such great returns for me, that I plan to add quizzes to a number of my posts.
Where do the subscribers go?
The great thing about interact is it is already setup to automatically transfer your subscribers right to your email list. Most of the major email providers can be connected with a simple click and Josh has told me they have even more providers joining on in the near future. If your provider isn’t currently connected, it is easy to transfer the data right from your dashboard. Within your private dashboard, you will have access to analytic and leads. Not only will you get an email address, but for each lead, you will learn about their answers to the quiz which will give you valuable information when you try to reach out to them in the future.

What if I don’t know how to use a quiz or what the quiz should be about?
To be totally honest, I struggled with the idea at first. When I was talking to Josh about trying this out, I was wondering what in the world I would make a quiz about. Then, I went through a list of posts I had coming up for my blog and I easily came up with several ideas right off the bat. The other great thing about interact is so many people have already used it, so they have great examples you can look through. And as you create, there are lots of templates you can use so you don’t have to start from scratch if you aren’t ready for that. Of course, if you are ready to roll, you can start your quiz from scratch as well.
Is it hard to create?
Like I said in the previous question, I was a bit nervous at first. When you do something new, there is always a little hesitation to get started. Fear of the unknown I guess. Well, as soon as I sat down and started developing my quiz, it just flowed. The platform is so user friendly and if you get stuck at any point, there are video tutorials to help along the way. I did have a couple questions during the process that I couldn’t find the answer to, but I sent an email and within minutes I had a response from Josh himself. Your dashboard is very self explanatory so each part of your quiz is easy to navigate and create.
How do I get started with my first quiz?
This part is simple. Once you sign up, you can get started immediately. You might want to look through some of the examples or the templates provided or you might already know what you want to create. Either way, you can log into your account and choose from quizzes, polls, or giveaways. You will then be prompted to choose an existing template or choose a blank template. From there, you will be walked through each step so you can customize your quiz exactly the way you want. Once you have developed your results and your questions, added pictures and links, you will be ready to integrate with your mail provider if you choose. And that’s basically it! You can publish your quiz within a blog post or somewhere on your site and watch as people begin to engage with your quiz. It is very exciting when this happens!
So should you try out Interact?
If you have been looking for something a little different to add a personal touch to your website and really start engaging with and getting to know your readers or clients, I highly recommend Interact. They have a free plan that allows you to create as many quizzes, polls, and giveaways as you want. They also have plans as low as $17/month that allow you to capture all those quiz finishers as leads. If you still aren’t sure, check it out and send them an email with any other questions. Or comment below and I will answer any questions I can about my experience to help you decide if it is right for you.
