Welcome back. This is now module three, where we are diving into the actual tech. Of building out an email list and just seeing how hard can it be to create a quiz, uh, today. And the good news is there are, uh, two really, really good options that I suggest, um, as far as tools to build out a quiz and really bring it to life.
And the two we're going to explore is type, form and interact. So let's look at interact first and interact is a really great and powerful tool because first of all, It has really good templates. Although templates what's true is you should never use them just as they are. Because that is not your quiz or maybe this is just my personal opinion.
Um, I would not use a quiz that is straight off of a template because that's not my work. I want to share my work to then move people towards my paid work. So to me, Although templates are a great starting point. Um, my suggestion is to never actually use a template in its entirety. Um, but the good thing with interact is there have a lot of great templates to get you off to the races that much easier.
And once you are off to the races, Thanks too. It's sort of drag and drop relatively easy to use builder. Um, it's not too hard to make your customizations and really make sure that your quizzes exactly how you want it to be both visually, but also experientially, meaning, you know, customizing questions and different types of questions and all that sort of stuff.
Um, nothing's easy, right? I don't ever want to paint it as that, but the reality is, um, with these drag and drop builders, they just really have made it. Okay. Just infinitely easier. Um, I always laugh when I talk about like back in my day, but. Back in my day, it was not easy to make a quiz, especially a complex one with calculations and scoring and all that.
It was nearly impossible. And now it is far from impossible. It's again, I use the word lightly, but it's easy. Another great thing is it's reasonably priced. Um, the $29 a month plan, um, gets you quite a ways down the line. I think it limits the amount of responses you can get, but. At 5,000 responses I believe a month.
So probably plenty, plenty to get started. And, um, it doesn't allow you to remove the branding, the interact branding at that price. But in general, you could be creating a great quiz. Um, You know, for $29 a month. And again, they do have a free trial as most do. Um, we're just talking about kind of in the end, once you're in the full swing of things, what does it cost and, and interact is relatively reasonably priced.
And one thing that is a good thing and a bad thing, I guess, is that it's singularly focused and basically with interact, all it allows you to do is create quizzes. And we, we talk about the next, um, or I guess I've already told you the other one is typed form. It is not singularly focused. So. For me and our business, that singular focus of interact is less intriguing overall.
Um, just because you can only make quizzes with it. And if you want to say, use it to create other forms or ways for people to register for events, register for webinars, all those sorts of things. It's not the platform for that. Um, and that's a pro and a con, right? If you do one thing and you do it well, that's great.
Um, But for us and our, our business, we have, uh, uh, selected type form because of its flexibility and, uh, moved away from interact. We've never actually used it ourselves. I've played around with it. Um, but it, singular focus just doesn't work for us overall. So when we look at Typeform, Typeform is great because it really is easy to use.
It's very flexible. I also very much appreciate their native integrations, something you'll notice with tools, be it email service providers, these sort of form builders, um, like type, form, and interact. They all, um, Can be connected to other applications. So let's just go with a, a very popular example of going from Typeform to Google sheets.
Okay. So say you would just want almost like a backup data. So every time someone submits a type form, you want to automatically create a backup in a Google sheet. This is great type form allows you to do that natively, meaning you do not need extra tools to make that possible. Whereas, um, interact. I actually need, you have to use an additional service that costs money called Zapier.
And that's not the end of the world. It's not this, this is not a nail in the coffin or anything like that. Um, but that's an additional tool, a little additional costs, additional complexity, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah. Right? Whereas Typeform really has a very robust native integrations, meaning you don't need a service like Zapier to do a lot of the things you'll want to do between moving data between different applications.
Now it's not perfect. It doesn't have everything. Some things you can, um, if you needed to accomplish, you might need sappy or even with type form. But they have a lot more native integrations, which I really, really appreciate. So, and again, the main reason why we like it is its flexibility and its ability to multipurpose it again.
There's if you're in our, one of our programs or have attended one of our webinars or have answered a survey or completed our mindset quiz, all of these things you have interacted with one of our type forms. We really use it for everything. I don't know the exact number of type forms I have, but I bet you it's over a hundred and we've been using it for five years.
I believe. And I just really love it. And it's because of this flexibility that we do suggest you use it because I think you will end up having multiple uses that you can think of using Typeform for, whereas interact. Um, just isn't as flexible again. Great quiz builder. It's just about that. Other use utility around your business.
And ultimately it's not the exact same price Typeform, I think is a little bit more expensive, um, for similar feature sets. However, when you calculate it and then all the other things you can accomplish with type form, I think it's even on par as far as value, even though I believe the equivalent plan is $50 a month compared to 30 for interact.
But again, to me, it's completely justified because of its flexibility. However, with all of that being said, We actually will inside of the quiz, launching lab, be showing you how to do and create the happiness quiz with both type form and interact. And that's just something we hope you appreciate ultimately, um, because we want to serve as many people as possible, and it just depends on where you're at and what you're looking to do.
Um, It's never a one size fits all. So we want to be as helpful as we possibly can inside the quiz launching lab. So we will show him, be showing you how to create the happiness quiz in both type farm, as well as interact from start to finish. So. I do actually encourage you to watch both because there is pros and cons to each.
I do think it's worth the time, even if you, uh, I guess unless you a hundred percent know you want type form, are you a hundred percent know you want to interact? I suppose, but, um, again, the real differentiator is interact is better. If you're only creating one quiz, it's probably actually even cheaper overall, as I was saying, However, I do believe that in the general sense, Typeform really pulls through with all its flexibility, but that might not matter to you today.
And obviously you can always start with one and adapt and move later. This is not set in stone. So I'm excited with quiz launching lab to serve everybody as much as we possibly can by showing you how to use both of these great tools.
