What is a quiz?

Riddle's quiz creator makes it easy to ask a series of questions with a quiz - each with a right or wrong answer.

There's no limit to the number of questions (although we find six to ten to be the engagement 'sweet spot'), and you can choose from single answer, free text, or multiple choice. People love a challenge - use Riddle's quiz maker to educate or entertain your audience.

Why are online quizzes so effective?

As humans, we all love to show off a bit - and prove to our friends how much we know. It doesn't matter the subject - it could be about anything from cats to coding, cars to cooking. Quizzes are proven winners at getting people to click, to stay on site, and to share their results with your friends.

And keeping and growing your audience is just the start.

Quizzes are a perfect marketing tool to grow your business. You can leverage our online quiz creator to include key questions in each quiz - that will qualify each person as a potential lead.

Imagine you're a mortgage broker and you build a "Fact or fiction: Home Buying Myths" quiz. Question #3 could be "It's better to go directly to your bank for a mortgage."

You could then tag anyone who answers 'True' as a hot lead. As part of your quiz maker marketing funnel, they would receive your automatic follow up message showing why your mortgage broker services would be so helpful.
