Ooh that was a lot of information! But that’s not all. Here is a quick detour for some of our friends who still need to learn the ropes of interactive content.

What is Interactive Content?

Interactive Content is a content form that requires active participation from the readers. It has been known to generate two times more conversions than passive content. In fact, It has a higher rate of engagement because it adds real value to the customers rather than blatantly selling to them. It is a great way to generate and nurture leads.

Marketers are increasingly turning to interactive content to grow their engagement rates. In fact, major companies like NYT, Buzzfeed, HBO, MOZ use interactive content as a marketing technique.

But don’t be mistaken, not all of those companies use the same content type . In fact, there are various forms of interactive content. You can choose to create a quiz or calculator, a poll or a survey, depending on your requirements. To make things simpler, we have listed out different types of interactive content for you:

Types of Interactive Content

Outcome Quizzes- More like outrun your competitors.

These quizzes can be used for recommending service/products or as personality quizzes by mapping your results to any question.

Calculators- Take the ‘later’ out of Calculators and you have

Instant results calculated in real time. Do people want to know the ROI of your product? Or the cost of building an app?  Or how much they can save on a Eurotrip? Calculate everything and anything. No coding, no fuss.

Product Recommendation- “Outside opinion. Duh!”

A treat for the ecommerce geeks out there. Questions are mapped to products that are linked directly to your ecommerce site.

Graded Quizzes- “Surprise tests were never this fun”

Much like a surprise school test but more fun. Grade customers on your product and attach incentives according to their scores!

Polls and Surveys- “Because the only form your customer service needs is to transform”

Don’t make ‘em fill out long customer satisfaction forms. That’s counterproductive. Create product surveys and customer satisfaction polls or even polls like “how many in favor of a new foosball table at the office”. All’s fair game.

You want to try it, don’t you? Well, you should!
