This means, there’s a big need for more diversified and engaging content – and one way to achieve that, is through interactive content. In this blog post, I’m going to share my favourite 10 tools to help you create interactive content for your website.

What is interactive content – and why would I want it?

Interactive content is content where your audience gets to interact with the content on your website (or social media, etc.). For example, polls, quizzes and games are interactive content.

What makes this type of content great is that it captures readers’ imaginations and makes them want to interact. Well, of course, only so long as you create good content and the subject makes them want to take part.

WebyClip is an amazing tool for those who have an e-commerce shop. It has a lot of awesome features, but the best part is that it helps the customer find the products they want, more easily – and that’s great for businesses, because it means more sales for them.

For example, the Snap & Shop feature uses images of the products your potential customers like online and then looks in your store’s catalogue to see if there are any similar products that would be of interest.

Their image recognition technology lets them figure out colours, shapes, sizes and proportions in order to find the best possible matches for your customers.

Another very cool feature is that you can create videos where users get to participate by clicking on products within the video, seeing related items and more. The tools offered by WebyClip are all designed to not only help you make more sales, but also to make the customer experience more interactive and engaging.

    Great article Lilach, if you want to use interactive content combined with social media and real-time experience check our tools at 4screens.net

    Hi, Lilach!
    Thanks for a huge comprehensive list of tools! I enjoyed your suggested tools.
    Besides, I’d like to add online plagiarism checker to this list. It’s called Unicheck – unicheck.com. This tool makes your content unique.
    I use it in case I want to be sure that my article will not contain a lot of words, similarities that unintentionally borrowed from the other bloggers.
    Also my fav tools in use are SnapApp, Guides.co. And I’m interested in to try Mapme, Qzzr and Ceros. Thanks for recommendations!
    Wish you a lot of subscribers,
    Whitney.

      Thanks Whitney 🙂 Love your suggestions – will definitely check out Unicheck, sounds awesome 🙂

    Thanks Liliach, this was really useful! Never hear of any of them before, but definitely I have to check some of them more closely.

    I noticed that “Boombox is now Qzzr” so I guess they have bought Boombox or something.

    • Lilach Bullock on 2017-08-29 at 12:52 pm

      Hi Vesa, thanks so much for your comment, glad you found the post useful:) Interactive content is a great way of diversifying your content and providing more value to your fans and readers.
      And yes, it looks like Qzzr acquired Boombox, so will have to amend in future articles.
      Thanks again!

    Great list Lilach! I know several tools from your list, and they are actually good. There is also Queezly which is a very easy to use app that helps to create 4 types of interactive contents: quizzes, polls, personality tests and ranking lists. They offer interesting options for lead generation. You can also try Queezly and why not adding it to your awesome list!

      Hi there, many thanks for your comment:) I wasn’t familiar with Queezly, but I will definitely check it out!

    Great overview Lilach! I didn’t know guides.co and some of the other tools, while I am quite familiar with the domain.
    For interactive quizzes and assessment, our tool Survey Anyplace is also well suited, and it is more affordable than some of the other tools – guess this is interesting for the readers 😉

      Thanks Stefan. I’m not familiar with your tool, thanks for the heads up!

    Hi Lilach, very useful article. I was wondering if you tried Sumappz? It is a new product from my startup and as a Content Marketer who tried maaany tools, I highly recommend it 🙂

    Hi Lilach, this is a great list! Would love if you wanted to check out Weld as well. I’d say it’s in the same space as Ceros/SnapApp, but easier to use:
