Why Make a Buzzfeed Quiz?

Make a Buzzfeed quiz to reach new people, connect with your audience, learn about them, and much more.

Maximize Engagement & Shares

People love quizzes. In fact, around 80% of people who come across a quiz in their news feed click on it.

Why do they work so well? Because quizzes focus on the audience and their experience.

A quiz, especially a Buzzfeed-style quiz, offers your audience a fun interactive experience. When we enjoy something we are more inclined to share it with others. It’s as simple as that.

Collect Qualified Leads

A lead form that’s connected to a fun quiz can get 5x more leads than a regular lead form. Why? Because people are in the right mindset:

  • They’re already in a type of conversation with you.
  • The form pops up right before they get the results when they’re curious to find out how they did.
  • You gave them a fun experience, which makes you more familiar and trustworthy.

With a lead form connected to a Buzzfeed quiz you won’t only get more email addresses, you’ll also get better leads since their contact details are connected to their quiz answers.

Strengthen Brand Awareness

Show people who you are, teach them about your field, or introduce them to your products/services.

  • Make a personality quiz that teaches people something about themselves.
  • Make a trivia quiz that teaches people about your field of expertise.
  • Customize your quiz to match your brand’s design and messaging.
  • White label your quiz and add your company logo.

This way, when people share your quiz, they’re also sharing your brand and helping you gain more authority.

Increase Traffic to Your Website

Grab your audience’s attention, drive them to your website, and keep them there longer.

  • Fill your quiz with images and fun content to get lots of shares.
  • Put it on your site, and share a link to the quiz page on your social channels.
  • Host it on our site and end it with a redirect or call to action button leading to your site.
  • Optimize your quiz even after it’s live to further increase engagement and traffic.

Learn About Your Audience

Learn about your audience through their quiz behavior and answers. The data is automatically displayed on our friendly analytics dashboard.

  • Compare their answers using visual graphs and charts.
  • Find out if they like your quiz by analyzing a variety of performance reports (views, completions, drop-offs, and more).
  • Receive a detailed response report for every participant.
  • View data on our site or export it to an XLS/CSV file.

Make More Sales

Build a Buzzfeed personality quiz that leads people to products/services that suit them. It’s called a product finder and it works really well because:

  • A product finder offers a personalized experience.
  • It increases confidence in your brand.
  • Makes the selection process much easier for your customers.
  • Gives them additional value whether it’s new information about themselves, your solutions, or both.

Generate Ad Revenue

Buzzfeed-style quizzes get a lot of traffic, engagement, and shares. With a couple of clicks, you can capitalize on these advantages.

Place ads in your quiz to get more views, clicks, and up to 300% more ad revenue.

Ads that are embedded in quizzes get more attention due to their interactive nature. Since people are already involved and clicking they are much more likely to interact with the ad.

How to Make a Buzzfeed Quiz?

Follow these steps to create a real buzz with your Buzzfeed quiz.

1. Define your audience & objective

Before you start building your quiz, take a moment to clearly define your goal. Ask yourself who you are aiming to engage and to what end.

Once you have the answer, deciding on the quiz topic and questions, as well as measuring your quiz’s success will be much easier.

2. Name your quiz

Every successful quiz begins with a great title. Writing a good title is an art as much as it is a skill, but there are a few rules you can follow.

  • Make your title short and clear so users can instantly understand what the quiz is about.
  • Appeal to your specific target audience. For example, if you’re reaching out to a cooking community, asking “What type of foodie are you?” in your quiz title should work nicely.
  • Get your audience curious about their ability to succeed. If you’re targeting college football fans, something like “How well do you know the Michigan Wolverines?” could be a good title.

3. Create result cards

When you make a BuzzFeed quiz, especially a personality quiz, it’s best to start from the end – the result cards.

  • Create 3-5 different result cards, depending on your goal and on the number of questions you plan to ask.
  • Make them as friendly, positive, and encouraging as possible. If you can make them funny – even better.
  • Keep result titles and descriptions short and sweet.
  • Include an eye-catching image that illustrates the content.
  • Don’t forget to add social sharing buttons to maximize sharing potential.
  • Result cards are also a great place to link to your site and configure a call to action.

4. Write questions & answer options

Now that you’re done with your quiz title and results, it’s time to start asking some questions.

  • There are different types of questions you can ask and combine to keep things interesting. For example, you could have a classic multiple-choice question with 3-5 answer options, followed by a true/false question, or a yes/no question.
  • When writing your questions and answer options, ask yourself what would interest and challenge you? What would keep you engaged and make you smile?
  • Make sure your answer options are clear and different from each other (overlapping answers can cause confusion and frustration).
  • If you’re building a personality quiz make sure the answer options cover all possibilities so that none of your participants feel left out.
  • If you’re making a trivia quiz, you can add short pop-up explanations after an answer is selected. Whether your user gives a wrong answer or a correct answer, these little pop-ups are a chance to enrich their knowledge and have some more fun with them.

Check out our quiz templates library as well as our blog for thousands of quiz question ideas.

5. Add bright & beautiful images

Buzzfeed quizzes are super visual. Our online quiz maker offers different visual layouts you can experiment with.

  • Choose a list layout and add one main image to the question.
  • Go for the image layout and add an image to every answer option.
  • In both cases you can also add gifs or videos instead of images if you like.

Use at least one visual in every question to make your quiz bright, colorful, and fun. It’s a great way to put a smile on your quiz-takers’ faces and to keep them with you till the end.

6. Choose a color theme

Once you’ve built your quiz, take a few moments to play with the design until you find a color theme that makes your Buzzfeed quiz pop.

We have a wide selection of themes you can choose from. Take a closer look at them here or simply try them out and preview your quiz until you find the one.

You can also choose fonts and letter sizes, add a logo, create your own color theme, and change the design completely using CSS override.

7. Try it out

Our Buzzfeed quiz maker tool gives you the option to see how your quiz will look and feel on different devices. So, before you share it with your audience try the different preview options.

It may also be a good idea to send a link to a few people for feedback. There may be questions that are clear to you but ambiguous to others or images you love that others hate.

Just make sure the people you send it to are part of your target audience so that you know their feedback is relevant.

8. Add It to your site or host it on ours

Once you’ve created your quiz and published it, you can easily embed it on your site. We recommend selecting a prominent location above the fold to maximize the number of views. You can embed the quiz in an article, post, or content piece, on the sidebar, or in an entry/exit popup.

Our online Buzzfeed quiz maker supports various embed types – javascript, iframe, placements, and more. For WordPress users, we offer a plugin that simplifies the process of creating and embedding quizzes on your WP site.

If you don’t own a website, you can simply run your quiz from an optimized landing page on the Opinion Stage site, and share a link.

9. Share your quiz & drive traffic to it

Now that you know how to make a BuzzFeed quiz and your quiz has a home, it’s time to start sharing it and inviting your audience to play.

Post it on your social media channels. A Facebook quiz can get great response rates, as can a WhatsApp quiz, a LinkedIn quiz, or a quiz on Twitter.

Consider growing the reach of your quiz with social ads, they work really well with quizzes and get great response rates.

With a click of a button, you can also send the quiz to your mailing list to increase its reach.

10. Optimize based on user behavior

Once you start getting quiz responses you can visit the results dashboard to see how things are going.

  • Take a look at the performance report at the top to see what percentage of people who saw the quiz actually started it and how many of them finished it.
  • Scroll down to the drop-off report to see if you lost a high number of users on any specific question.

You can use this data to improve your quiz even after it’s live. Sometimes it’s just a matter of changing the order of your questions or adding a word or two to make things clearer.

Why do people love Buzzfeed quizzes?

In short, people love Buzzfeed quizzes because they’re fun to answer and share.

Buzzfeed quizzes come in different shapes and forms. A Buzzfeed Trivia quiz invites people to test their knowledge. In this case, what makes it fun is the challenge and the competition.

A Buzzfeed personality quiz or outcome quiz leads participants to some sort of statement about themselves based on their answers. Here the joy comes from the curiosity of self-discovery and from the feeling that they are seen and understood.

Here are three more elements that make a Buzzfeed quiz, of any kind, extra lovable:

  • Topic: they usually touch on subjects that we’re all thinking and talking about, popular trends, common challenges, entertainment news, pop culture, etc.
  • Look & feel: they’re always bright, colorful, and full of fun images.
  • Voice & tone: Buzzfeed quizzes are friendly and often humorous.

How can a Buzzfeed style quiz help your business?

A Buzzfeed style quiz can help your business in a number of ways:

  • Marketing purposes: it can help you reach new audiences, get more traffic to your site, start conversations, and spread ideas.
  • Brand awareness and positioning: a Buzzfeed quiz that focuses on your company, your area of expertise, or your offering can help you get attention to your brand or gain authority as an industry leader.
  • Lead generation: if your goal is to get more customers or subscribers, a Buzzfeed quiz is a super effective way to make that initial contact and get the contact details you need to get the ball rolling.
  • Learning about your audience: analyze and compare quiz answers to get a better understanding of your audience, segment them, and learn how to approach them more accurately. You can learn a lot from people’s answers about their needs, interests, and personalities, and reshape future messaging and strategies accordingly.

How many questions should I add to my quiz?

There isn’t a clear set number. Much depends on your topic, your audience, and where you share your quiz.

In general, you should aim to make it long enough to promise a valuable and fun experience, but not too long so as not to take up too much time.

Over the years we have found that if you’re making a trivia quiz it’s best to stick to 7-15 questions, and 5-10 questions if you’re creating a personality quiz.

But the best way to go about it is to try different numbers of questions while keeping an eye on the analytics until you reach the perfect length.

How can I collect leads with quizzes?

Collecting leads is super simple if you’re using our Buzzfeed quiz maker. All you need to do is click on ‘leads’ in the menu and add a lead form. It will appear right after the last question and before the results.

Lead generation quizzes can get 5x more leads than regular lead forms thanks to their interactive nature. People are more likely to give you their details after you’ve given them an entertaining experience, especially when they receive feedback or a score for the quiz they just took in return.

How do I share my Buzzfeed style quiz?

It’s as simple as sharing a link. You can share your quiz on social media, messaging apps, email, and more. This is how:

  • If you want to host your Buzzfeed quiz on our site, click on ’embed & share’, select the ‘share link’ tab, copy the link, and paste it wherever you want to share it.
