A great way to improve website visitor engagement and get potential business is with quizzes. A quiz does not necessarily need to have academic questions. You can use one to help visitors figure out which product they should buy or books they should read, for example. Quizzes can also be created just for fun or to learn more about your visitors.
We have already created a post which provides a list of the best free WordPress quiz plugins.
However, free plugins are generally lacking in features and don't offer support in case you get stuck. Sometimes, you might also have to be content with the plugin branding that is added to all your quizzes with free plugins. If you are looking for the best premium WordPress plugins, offering a lot of features and free support, this post will help you out.
1. Advisor Quiz
Advisor Quiz is a great plugin which comes with plenty of features like multiple layouts, full customization, and support for ads integration.
You can create regular trivia quizzes where visitors can test their knowledge by answering some questions. Two other types of quizzes called content filter and personality quizzes can also be created in a similar manner. They will allow you to provide users with some additional insight or product recommendation based on their answers.
There is one more quiz type that you can create, and it is called the count quiz. It can be incredibly helpful in certain situations.
Let's say you run a travel-related website where users can find information about vacation destinations. A visitor arrives on the website looking for some recommendations. Now, you can show them a simple quiz where they are shown some famous tourist spots. They can then select all the places that they have already visited. After answering a couple more questions, you will be able to suggest some new places that they can visit based on places they have already visited. The same concept can be applied to recommendations related to anything from food to movies or more.
The plugin comes with powerful analytics that let you track all quiz-related data. For example, you can see how many people started a quiz, successfully submitted their answers, clicked on the products and services you recommended, and so on.
The quizzes can be easily embedded in your posts using simple shortcodes. Don't forget to check out the live preview of the plugin where you can test out all the features.
2. WordPress Viral Quiz
The WordPress Viral Quiz plugin is currently the top-selling WordPress quiz plugin on CodeCanyon. You can use it to create personality or trivia quizzes which have a tendency to go viral. If your quizzes do get shared around by a lot of people, you will get more views and in turn more revenue.
For example, let's say you create a quiz where people answer some trivia questions about a popular movie star or TV show. In the end, the quiz displays their scores and shows them buttons that they can click on to directly share their results as well as the quiz itself with people on social media. You can also create quizzes where you give people an explanation for the answer of each quiz question after they submit their choice.
To increase the chances of more people seeing your quizzes, you can also set up the plugin in so that users only see the result when they share the quiz on social media. Similarly, you can build your email lists by asking users for their email address where you will send them the results of the quiz.
The plugin can be used to create quizzes with either a Buzzfeed theme or a modern flat theme. The questions in the quizzes can be randomized for different people. The quizzes you create are fully responsive and can be extended to multiple pages. The appearance of the quiz itself can be easily customized with your own CSS.
You should definitely check out the demo page of the plugin to see the kind of quizzes that you can create with it.
3. Modal Survey Quiz Plugin
The Modal Survey Quiz plugin allows you to create quizzes in the form of a poll or survey. These quizzes can be embedded directly into the posts or shown as a pop-up in a modal.
You can either show the aggregate results of any poll or survey to visitors on the front-end of the website or you can see the results yourself on the back-end. This should help you make constant improvements to your website and help improve engagement or revenue.
The results of a survey are represented visually in order to make them easier to analyze. This is done with the help of a variety of charts.
The plugin can also be used to create other kinds of quizzes like a trivia or personality test. The trivia quizzes are created in a way that encourages visitors to share them on social media. You can also put a time limit on the quizzes that you create.
There are a lot of settings to customize almost every aspect of the quizzes. This includes font, padding, border, and background color. The plugin also gives you the option to trigger a quiz based on certain events like a user clicking on a link or scrolling to the bottom of the webpage. You then have the option to give users the ability to close the quiz pop-up or force them to answer the questions in order to get back to the content.
Quizzes can also consist of star ratings or images as part of the answer. For example, when asking users how satisfied are they with the delivery time of their orders, you can create a quiz with answers ranging from a one-star rating to a five-star rating. Using images and other graphic elements instead of plain text can help keep things more interesting and increase engagement.
The feature list does not end here. You should definitely check out the plugin description page in order to read about the rest of the features. Also take a look at the demo where polls and surveys are embedded seamlessly into the webpage.
