The 6 Best Tools for Creating Interactive Content

NEWS: Digital Marketing

Are you using interactive content as part of your marketing strategy? A survey conducted by Content Marketing Institute found that 53% of marketers are using interactive content and the proof is in the pudding that it’s getting results.

That 53% is also expected to grow. In fact, interactive content is one of the fastest growing go-to strategies for big name brands all over the world.

But what is interactive content?

Interactive content requires your audience to actually engage, instead of passively reading or watching your content. For example, if you’ve ever done an online quiz, then you’ve engaged in interactive content.

For markers, interactive content can help you score the most coveted top spot in Google’s search results since valuable content is the number one way to rank on Google’s first page.

Of course, there are more benefits to interactive content than ranking number one on Google.

  • Increased conversion rates
  • Improved audience segmentation
  • Lower bounce rates
  • Increased shares & more backlinks

And there’s even more good news. For many years creating interactive content meant spending a significant sum of money, and it required a lot of time and expertise. It used to be that only big corporations with hefty marketing budgets could create interactive content. But not anymore!

Now that we’re well into 2019 all that has changed. New tools allow marketers with any budget to create the kind of valuable content Google loves to see. Here are the best tools to use for creating interactive content and reaping all those benefits for your business.
