Kahoot is a super popular quiz maker, but you can't use it for business. This is how you can create a quiz like Kahoot but for your company
Kahoot is a super fun app for making and taking quizzes. It's massively popular and the quizzes built on Kahoot are incredibly fun. However, if you're looking to use Kahoot for business you're out of luck because they only let you make and take quizzes within the app, you can't put them on your own website or social media.
With interact quiz maker you can create the same type of interactive, fun quizzes that you make on Kahoot, but you can use them on your own website and social media, and you can also use them to build your email list and sell products.
What this article will show is how you can create your own interactive quiz and put it on your website using interact quiz maker.

1. Make a free forever interact quiz maker account
Interact quiz maker lets you make a totally free account that never expires, you can click here to get yours.
With your account you can make unlimited quizzes that can be taken by unlimited people. You can use the quizzes on your own website and social media and have people take the quiz.
The reason you'll need an account is so you can access your quizzes at a later date, we don't use your information for anything other than to remember which quizzes you created and let you save all your quizzes in the same place.
Interact is a quiz maker already used by 55,000 companies around the world and the quizzes made on the platform are taken nearly 1 billion times a years so it's a trusted place for creating quizzes.
Anyone can make a free interact quiz maker account and start building quizzes immediately.
2. Choose from a quiz template or start from scratch
Once you've created your free account, the first step is to choose whether you want to start from a template or create a quiz from scratch.
This is one place where interact is much easier than Kahoot, because if you select a template then you can choose from fully-built quizzes that you can use without having to write anything, but you also have the option to make your own totally custom quiz from scratch should you choose to.
If you choose a template you can select your website category to see quiz templates that match your business
See templates from your industry or from similar types of companies. You can browse all the templates to see what other people are doing that is popular and gain inspiration from them.
Interact has quiz templates from all sorts of businesses, so you can find something that's close and start from there. All templates can be fully modified and edited once you choose one so you don't have to worry about finding something that exactly fits what you need.
Kahoot-Type Quizzes Are Called Assessments in Interact
After you select your industry you will choose the type of quiz you want to make. Kahoot-style quizzes are called assessments inside of the interact quiz maker, so that's the one you'll choose.
The reason they are called assessments is that you are assessing someone's knowledge of a subject in the quiz and therfore it's called an assesssment.
3. Customize the cover page of your quiz
You can change the colors, images, and text on the cover page of your quiz. You can also choose your own font to use on the quiz.
This way your quiz can match your website and brand and the quiz will look like part of your website instead of like something from another website.
You can easily change all these things by picking colors, fonts, and styles from right within the interact quiz maker
4. Write your own quiz questions
If you choose a template there will already be questions set up for you, and you can modify any that you want to change.
If you are creating a quiz from scratch you can write your own questions and add them into the quiz.
We recommend having 5-10 questions to make an engaging quiz that people enjoy taking but not so long that your quiz takers start to get bored.
5. Create Correct/Incorrect Screens With Explanations
You can set up screens that show people if they got each question right or wrong right after they answer it.
On each of these pages you can provide an explanation of why the answer is right or wrong, so that people will know why the right answer is the correct one.
This is also an opportunity to make your quiz more interesting because people will want to know why the correct answer is correct.
I recommend having a 2-3 sentence explanation of each answer that you include on these pages so that people get enough of an explanation to be satisfied and happy with your quiz.
6. (Optional) Set up your quiz to grow your email list
With interact you can ask people to enter an email address in your quiz. If they do, we have integrations with all the email marketing programs like Mailchimp, Aweber, and Constant Contact.
If someone opts-in, they'll be added to your email list and you can send out more information that is related to the quiz (or send out more quizzes later).
The example to the right says "Enter your email to see your score!" "And get pokemon updates by email" which makes sense because this is a quiz about Pokemon, and if I'm going to give you my email address you should probably at least send me stuff that's related to Pokemon.
You don't have to turn this on for your quiz and it often isn't the right choice, but sometimes it does make sense to include.
7. Create quiz results and show people an answer key
After someone finishes a quiz, you can show them results in interact as well as an answer key of which questions they got right and wrong.
You can also include a button with a link to learn more or read more about the subject of the quiz, and use that button to link to your website with specific information for each quiz result.
People like seeing an overview of how they did on your quiz, and this is a nice way to provide closure about the outcome of the quiz.
If you're using the quiz for business purposes, the ability to link to your own content in a personalized way based on how well someone does on your quiz is super helpful because personalized content recommendations tend to get people much more interested in your website.
7. Embed your quiz in your website
With interac you can embed your quiz into your own website. This way the quiz looks like it's part of your business and not from somewhere else.
If you don't have a website, you can use a link to your quiz that will open in it's own webpage like this so people can go to your URL and take the quiz.
8. Share your quiz on social media
You can also share your quiz directly to social media so your friends and customers can see it and take it.
When people take your quiz they can share their own results to social media as well, and when that happens a lot quizzes go viral.
9. See analytics of your quiz
You will be able to see how many people have taken your quiz, how they answered the questions, which results they got, and how well they scored.
You can access this information anytime online.
Your quiz will look beautiful on every device
