We’ve designed Riddle’s online quiz maker to make it easy to collect emails from your quiz takers. 

And the best part? No coding is required – it’s super easy for anyone to get started.

The ‘Collect emails’ step

Let’s dive into the nitty-gritty:

  • Create or edit an online quiz, personality test, or any of Riddle’s 15 types of interactive formats
  • Go to the ‘Collect emails’ step
  • Create your form
  • Drag/drop the fields for each user to complete (name, email, etc.)
  • Connect it to your email marketing tools such as ActiveCampaign, MailChimp, Google Sheets, and many more.

Collect emails – best practices

Some key points about using lead generation to collect emails in your quiz:

  • Keep forms optional – Riddle forms can be required or skippable.
    • We recommend keeping the skip option – you’ll get fewer, but higher quality leads.
    • Mandatory forms just encourage people to give fake details so they can proceed to their results.
  • Give a ‘can’t miss’ call to action – go beyond the ‘sign up for our newsletter’. That never works well.
    • Provide a compelling reason for each user to give their information.
    • Some good examples: ‘Sign up for a free 15 minute Skype consultation of your results’ or ‘Enter your details to get 25% off your first three months’.
  • The fewer fields, the better – we’ve found 3-5 fields work best. With each field, you will see a drop in people filling it out. Typing on smartphones in particular  can be a pain, so only ask for the most important information you need.

Lead generation overview and video walkthrough

Now that’s a very brief overview of how to collect emails with Riddle’s quiz builder.

For more information – check out our blog post about using quiz lead generation with Riddle.

(Random factoid: A good quiz with a good call to action should get 35-45% opt-in rates.

The best forms offer a good incentive for the users like ‘Free 15 minute online consultation’ or ‘Win two tickets to X’.
