A lead magnet is what you offer to your subscribers in exchange to their email or other contact information. They can be free PDF, cheat sheet, eBook, video, etc.

If you listen to the Marketing for Creatives episode with Liz Pineda about how to sell online with the high converting sales funnels, we talked about what type of lead magnets are trending now.

She analyzed many successful sales funnels and built them for other, and shared that the recent statistic shows that it needs to be a quick win for the person. Something like a workbook, swipe files or templates that are easy to assume and get a quick result. If it’s too long and complicated people may not finish it.

I had an Instagram guide before as a lead magnet. One day a friend covered me with the questions about Instagram.

I asked:

  • Did you read the guide that you got when you subscribed to my email list? All the answers are there. I put so much effort to create it in details.
  • Oh, is that the one with the 52 pages? No, when I saw how much I need to read I closed it.

Funny and sad, but it is how it is. The stuff like eBooks and free video courses do not work as well as before. They take a long time to process, and people don’t take the next step in your sales funnel.

Amy Porterfield got into more details about choosing the right lead magnet for your audience. She also mentioned that one of the new and interactive ways to attract people is a quiz as a lead magnet and this is what we will go deep into today.

After trying a few quiz platforms, I stopped at Interact. The platform has a variety of ways to create a quiz as you like, ability to integrate with your email system, detailed statistic, and reasonable price.

The quiz I created is based on the Authority System that I teach for those who want to become an influencer in their niche. Take a quiz here.

It helps you to define what type of influencer you are as an entrepreneur.

The quiz questions are based on the main criteria that help you to position yourself as an authority and scores the results you get.

To create it first, I wrote everything on the paper including:

  • Questions
  • Variations of the answers
  • Scores of the answers
  • Results, based on the score that people get

If you are not sure what to ask your audience, these 50 quiz questions may help you to pick something for your quiz.

Here is how I put together a quiz online using Interact and how you can create yours.

How to integrate Interact quiz with MailChimp

We use Interact quiz as a lead magnet to grow your email list, so after you finish setting up the quiz, integrate it will your email system.

To collect people’s emails, ask them to leave their email at the end of the quiz to see the results.

I’ll use MailChimp as an example.

At the left side enable lead capture and data collection.

The first step of integration is set up the form where people leave an email. Pick what you want to collect and other options you think you need.

Next step is an integration itself. Choose your service. I picked MailChimp.

In the settings remove the mark for double opt-in. If someone is already in your email list then he or she won’t get any confirmation emails and will get results right after he or she filled the email form.

The data in your email system will be automatically updated for the fields that you set up actions to.

On the Fields step pick the fields that you want to update when people complete the email form. Select Email and First Name.

The Quiz Score Value will add the score result of the quiz. I left the field empty as I don’t want to keep the number of points only the result title that people get after they finish the test. We’ve done this at the Result step when we updated the Influencer Quiz merge field.

If you choose to update the Influencer Quiz filed as a Quiz Score Value, then the data from the Result step of the Influencer Quiz filed the will be updated to the score number.
