Let’s talk about the quiz that just popped up in front of you. Did you take it? And did you even sign up to get your results?
Let me tell ya, quizzes are the ultimate tool to grow your email list. As far as I know, I always loved to take quizzes because they are a fun way to get to know yourself better, to check your knowledge and to find the right things for you. In other words, when you create a quiz you can choose between Buzzfeed Quizzes, Personality Quizzes and Multiple Choice quizzes that cover the points I just mentioned.
WHY YOU NEED TO USE QUIZZES TO GROW YOUR EMAIL LIST
From first hand experience you probably know how tempting quizzes can be. When you find one that arouses your interest, you’re eager to receive your results. Therefore you sign up using your email with the hope to learn more about yourself and what type of ______ you are.
And here you go: quizzes are the ultimate way to generate subscribers! If that’s no good reason to embed them to your site, I don’t know what is. Approximately half of the people who take your quiz will opt in and therefore become email subscribers. No Freebie you offer will ever generate that number of people!Quizzes are the ultimate way to flourish your email list. Click To Tweet
Still not convinced? Well, I have another good reason for you. By sending out the results to your subscribers, you’ll also be able to recommend related posts to their results to them. You can be sure they are honestly interest in the topic and write more content associated to that.

FOLLOW THESE 8. SIMPLE STEPS TO CREATE A QUIZ AND FLOURISH YOUR EMAIL LIST
Before you’re able to start creating your quiz, do a brainstorm or take simple notes. List the main subjects your blog or website is about and in what questions your readers might be interested in. It doesn’t make any sense if you’re writing about lil’ puppy’s and then create a quiz with the lead question: What Type Of Car Suits You. See, doesn’t add up at all. The right question here to ask is: What Type of Dog Are You. I admit, that’s a weird example but hopefully you get what I’m saying. 🐶
1.| SET UP AN ACCOUNT
Let’s start simple. Before you are able to create quizzes to flourish your email list, you have to sign up first. Click here to set up your account or visit the TryInteract website.
2.| TEMPLATE OR FROM SCRATCH
When you’re signed up, you’ll be able to create your quiz. You have the option to choose from pre-made templates related to your site’s topic or to build your own from scratch. I went with the template because I wanted to get a lil’ inspiration before adding my own ideas.
3.| TYPE OF QUIZ
When using Interact, you’re able to choose what type of quiz you’d like to build. Assessment, Personality or Scored. Take a look below to see the specific descriptions. I made a personality quiz because they are the ones I’m most interested in.
4.| CHOOSE QUIZ TEMPLATE
When you previously selected the option to use pre-made templates, Interact shows you the ones related to your niche or topic. Don’t see what you’re looking for? You can always suggest ideas to the Interact team.
A little sidenote: I chose the middle option. Funny thing is that before I started building the quiz, my thoughts formed exactly this question. I was a little disappointed to see I wasn’t the only one coming up with this idea. #thestruggleisreal
5.| START WRITING YOUR QUESTIONS
You can choose to either use the questions suggested to you, or you can type out your own ideas. Mixing up the two things worked out great for me as I was struggling to find questions that fit my voice.
6.| CREATE RESULTS (+ RELATED BLOG POSTS)
Wohoo, you are ready to create your results. When someone finishes your quiz, their results will pop up. Making sure that your results fit your questions should be your number one priority. Otherwise your readers will be disappointed and most likely leave your site.
In case you’re struggling to come up with your results, don’t feel bad if you write a first draft and come back later on to complete them. That’s what I did! In addition to that, you’re able to link to related blog posts you’ve published to let the reader know more about their results.
7.| EDIT RESULT CONCLUSIONS
Now it is time to link the answers with the results. What happens when a person clicks on one point and what effect will it have on the result? Here is an example of my correlations. As you can see, you’re able to connect multiple points to the same result. Looks a little confusing but it is pretty easy.
8.| EMAIL INTEGRATION + PUBLISH
Probably the most difficult step of the whole quiz building process. No worries, it is not that hard!
Last but not least you connect your Interact account to your email provider, choose what emails your subscriber gets and tadaaa. You’re created your first quiz. Congrats! 🥂 Now you are able to flourish your email list with the use of quizzes!
After all, have you taken a quiz (or mine) before and signed up to get your results? Me: Guilty as charged!
Embed quizzes to your blog in order to flourish your email list and get honest subscribers that are interested in learning more. Hope you enjoyed this post.
