Many members of Fearless Launching have been asking about quizzes. Today’s show is all about quizzes and how to use them, create them, and incorporate them into a launch. I have recently seen online quizzes and online assessments used as part of some amazing launches, so it will be great to learn more.
Today’s guest is Josh Haynam from the the online quiz platform Interact. I have been taking quizzes as long as I can remember, and they are something that everyone can and should incorporate into their business and their launch or the lead up to their launch. Josh shares how Interact got started, what it is, and how everyone can incorporate quizzes into their online business.
