2- Use a catchy title

Your quiz title is like the bait on the hook. On social networks, it is the title that will need to catch attention of as many quiz takers, and get them to engage the interaction with you. Without a good one, you lose a lot of potential users, and your quiz will fall into the cemetery of forgetfulness that many online content know. Do not panic! There are some proven syntaxes for a quiz title that perform well, and encourage clics:

Are you a _____ expert?

Do you really know _____?

How much do you actually know _____? 

Can you pass the _____ test? 

The use of words like « expert », « really », « actually », « how much », « pass the test », change the context from knowledge test to challenge. And everyone loves to meet challenge.

3- Design your questions

The questions of your quiz are the place where you have the opportunity to start a conversation with the quiz taker and discover more about him. This is where all the magic of quizzes start.

Here are some points that will help you get the most out of this magic:

  • Do not ask too long questions at the risk of quickly annoying the player. For both questions and answers, try to be as brief as possible, with simple formulationsDesigning a question of the quiz
  • Go from the easiest to the most difficult questions. This helps to encourage both amateurs of the subject and experts. This is one of the most difficult parts of creating a quiz because you have to be careful not killing the enthusiasm of pros with too easy questions, while not discouraging fans with too difficult questions.
  • Feel free to be personal, and ask questions that encourage the quiz takers to tell you about themselves (their interests, their needs, their hobbies …).
  • Add images to enrich your questions or even your answers. In a world where images are worth thousands words, illustrate your questions with images allows you to grab more attention and better share emotional message.Enriching the quiz by illustrating a question with images.
