Halloween quiz promotions are a great opportunity to learn more about your audience, whether you focus on existing customers or new leads. You can offer your followers some seasonal entertainment, and collect market research for your brand – all with a single app.

Halloween quiz ideas: Why organize Halloween trivia games online

Quizzes are some of the most popular Internet content of all time. They’re quick and entertaining – and they have a completion rate of up to 96%. With the Easypromos applications, you can launch a variety of different Halloween quizzes, such as Personality and Knowledge Quizzes, Product Recommenders, or even Surveys.

Possibly you’re not 100% sure about the reasons for launching a Halloween quiz. Here are our top four:

  • Expand the database. The best thing about running a Halloween quiz is that it allows you to collect new contact details, as participants share their information in order to enter prize draws and see personalized messages.
  • Segment and classify your leads. Apart from growing your mailing list you also learn more about your target audience. You can target your audience better, as you get to know their likes and preferences.
  • Market research. Are you planning to launch a new product? Launch a Halloween quiz to collect market insights.
  • Boost engagement. Users that enter your branded Halloween quiz automatically interact with your brand, boosting engagement and concurrently improving brand and product awareness.

Halloween trivia questions: test your followers’ knowledge and expertise

Let’s start with a Halloween Knowledge Quiz! You can launch it for your social media followers to convert them into leads, newsletter subscribers to reconnect with them, or existing customers to thank them for their loyalty.

You probably want to know how to attract more participants to your Halloween quiz… It’s important to incentivize participation! Throw in an attractive prize that you will raffle among all participants of your Halloween quiz, or simply distribute discount codes or vouchers to all registered participants. Remember, the better the prize, the more participants you attract.

Example of Halloween quiz promotions. The question is, "Where did the first Halloween costume parade take place in 1921?" Users select the correct video clip to answer.

If you wish to add a dash of excitement to your Halloween trivia, a Timed Quiz will do the trick. The Timed Quiz app allows you to add a time limit to answer every question, making it even more exciting and engaging, and giving it a twist of competitiveness.

At Easypromos, we are aware that the most labor-intensive part of creating a Halloween Quiz comes with drafting the questions. So, in our quest to make it Easy for you, we have included a new feature in our app that uses AI to automatically generate the Halloween Trivia questions for you! All you need to do is specify the parameters in the question generator, watch the Abracadabra happen, and choose the ones you want to include in your Halloween Trivia. It is that Easy!

More Halloween quiz examples for your brand

We always want to inspire you! So here are just a few different examples of Halloween quizzes that were launched by a variety of different brands.

Here’s an example of a Halloween quiz promotion from Simply. The brand wanted to know if its audience would be able to survive a zombie apocalypse! The brand asked some simple questions and collected new contact details for their database.

The next example is from a brand associated with Halloween, as Snazaroo is a producer of skin-friendly face and body paint. The organizers wanted to convert social media followers, so they shared a direct link to their Halloween quiz on social media. Interested followers answered questions about Halloween and magic-themed movies for a chance to win some paint right in time for Halloween.

How to create Halloween survey questions

A Halloween survey works in a similar way to Halloween quiz promotions. People go through a quick set of questions, leave their contact details, and have the opportunity to share the promotion with their friends.

But of course, there’s one key difference: there are no right or wrong answers to Halloween survey questions. You’re just trying to find out what people think, feel, and want. You can ask more questions, and in more depth, than with a standard registration form.
