Have you ever taken a personality quiz on Facebook? You know the kind, the one’s that ask what Historic character you are? What Dr. Who Character you are? What your true age is?
They have huge viral impact, people love taking them and love sharing the results.

Creating this sort of quiz can help your business in a couple of ways:
1. It will increase brand awareness. As long as you brand your content so that when it’s shared people know where it’s coming from and as long as it’s relevant to your target market this can be a great way for getting your business in front of people.
2. You can collect email addresses from participants and add them to your email marketing list. This gives you the opportunity to sell to them in the future without relying on Facebook.
A personality quiz won’t suit every business. They are fun and light hearted so make sure that this tone fits your brand personality before you create one.
