Why to opt for Interactive Content

The Internet is crowded with white papers, webinars, ebooks, and infographics, but nobody has the time to download these ebooks or go through the whitepapers or attend webinars to learn more about a brand or it's offerings. In today's world, your audiences want to feel engaged rather than just reading or watching some content online. Content Marketing is no longer about showing content as we know it. This is where Interactive Content comes in. Interactive Content is a digital experience designed for engaging your audience. It is intended to be a two-way exchange and often includes a feedback loop in which the outcome of the experience is directly impacted by the interaction of the user with the content itself.

We at Outgrow have worked with a lot of clients over the years and one thing that we have learnt is that a good landing page will get you a low conversion, usually in the range of 0-12% (with an average of about 2.35%). To get to the higher end of that band, it requires a lot of “conversion hacking” which sometimes takes your user experience over to the dark side. Interactive content built using Outgrow on the other hand enjoy conversion rates that are almost a magnitude higher. We have seen conversion rates of almost 40%. This completely transforms marketing ROI!
