How to create an attractive quiz
Planning your quiz think about who your audience is and what solution you offer to them. Take the avatar of your ideal client and craft the result for it.
There are several steps to make your quizzes effective:
Pick a topic that aligns with what you offer
Come up with the questions
Create individual results
Follow up based on the results
To make the quiz work for you, it needs to match your offer. The mistake that some people make is they plan the topic that is interesting but far from what they want to sell later.
Use a quiz as a tool to segment your ideal client to give a more personalized solution.
Plan your questions and answers. They can help you to segment people by their interests, worries, or other data that you may think will be useful.
Make the questions easy to answer, mix them with the images when you can and keep 3-5 answers for one question otherwise people may leave the quiz before finishing.
Organize them into 3-4 types of results that people get in the end. Even if you offer only one kind of services, you can group clients to a few categories.
After taking the quiz, ask the person to leave an email to get the results.
Then you can guide people to your webinars, send them email series, offer the consultation based on the results, etc.
