Your content is boring, and not engaging…

At least, your customers and clients think so. Quite a bold assumption I know. Simply writing blog posts and creating run of the mill landing pages isn’t enough to make your message stand out from the crowd and engage your customer. Newsfeeds are full of noise, email is just noise, paid ads – more noise. The days of simply blogging are over, your competitors have reached the next level in content creation in order to cut through and grab attention, so should you.

Why will interactive content help you engage, influence & convert your customers?

In the past two years, the number of interactive posts has increased by 33 percent according to buzzsumo.com. Interactive content gives you a higher engagement rate, with more brand loyalty, the ability to capture more relevant data, an increase in your search presence, more backlinks, more likes, more leads and ultimately a better brand experience. All great stuff right?

Interactive digital content can be anything from quizzes and surveys, games, video, motion graphics, assessments, infographics, calculators and tools, interactive emails – literally anything you can interact with.
