Inbound marketers have to do more than write compelling blog articles or create simple videos if they want to compete. They have to create content that stands out. And it has to be more than just useful — it has to delight.

The answer is interactive content.

 

What is interactive content?

 

Interactive content is website content that requires site visitors’ active engagement beyond simply watching or reading. In exchange for interacting with the content, the site visitors receive real-time value in the form of hyper-relevant information.

The benefits of interactive content include:
  • Increase conversion rate
  • Better audience segmentation
  • Decrease bounce rate
  • More shares & backlinks
Some examples of interactive content could be:
  • Calculators
  • Quizzes
  • Assessments
  • Recommendations
  • Polls

 

How do you create interactive content? 

 

For the longest time creating interactive content required a substantial amount of time, money, and expertise to develop. It was something that only large companies with big budgets could do.

But that’s changed.

Now there are tools inbound marketers on any budget can use to create the type of remarkable content Google will reward with a top spot. Coding and cost are no longer constraints, only your creativity.
