  • Pub quizzes have survived and even thrived during the lockdown.
  • InnQUIZitive, a professional pub quiz experts team in Australia, has transit from offline to virtual pub quiz using AhaSlides technology to combat the Coronavirus and secure their business.
  • Their exploding global popularity has led them to package their quiz questions databank and sell them as premade pub quiz packs.

The Coronavirus has put every aspect of our daily life to a full stop, and drinking pubs are no less a casualty.

We have to settle for a beer at home, and while it does have its perks (the drinks are definitely cheaper), it certainly lacks the rowdy atmosphere of a real pub.

How Can We Be Saved?

Enter Australian pub quiz experts InnQUIZitive

Heeding the calls of locked-down pub-lovers, the InnQUIZitive team move their pub quizzes online and offer us a sense of community in this saddening time.

“We looked around to find an option to allow us to run our popular events online for players to continue to participate,” he goes on. 

That’s when Lamberton came across AhaSlides which he says is “the perfect solution for these sort of events”.

It is Very Important to Move Their Quizzes Online

Lamberton says that, in conjunction with AhaSlides technology, online quizzes have become InnQUIZitive’s sole revenue stream. They are, essentially, keeping the business afloat. Of course, when restrictions are eased this might change. For the time being, however, developing a stronger, more widely available product is the goal.

Participants can join the quiz right from their smartphones. No app installation required.

“We also recognised a growing interest from corporates for team engagement tools, of which online trivia was extremely sought after,” he says.

“We have now established a venue product where they can host their own online events, although we offer hosted options as well.”

InnQUIZitive is Investing in Their Own Future Success after the Restrictions

InnQUIZitive has made it a point not just to save its own business but also to look after its partner venues. 

“We now also do a weekly themed trivia event every Friday where we offer our regular venues the opportunity to become affiliates for us and sell tickets,” Garth says.

“This no-risk model lets them generate revenue simply by sharing their affiliate ticket link with their members or patrons, which also helps keep them engaged.”

Participating venues receive 50% of all ticket sales.

InnQUIZitive’s ability to bounce back after restrictions ease does not only depend on their ability to maintain their presence on the pub quiz scene. It also depends on their partner venues’ ability to bounce back too. Therefore, by providing for their pub partners, they are essentially investing in their own future success.

Exploding Success and Popularity

The popularity of virtual quizzes has exploded around the world and InnQUIZitive’s online pub quizzes have been no exception.

“Our virtual quizzes have been received with overwhelmingly positive feedback,” says Garth.  “Players love the instant, answering, scoring and leader-board updates.” 

Covid-19 has changed the face of the traditional pub quiz and they will never be the same. AhaSlides is both effective online and offline and few quiz masters will be going back to the old powerpoint format.

Interactive quizzes, over a few pints at the pub, or from the comfort of your own living room, are the way of the future. They are really easy to set up and AhaSlides’ platform makes them really easy to implement.

That said, we recognise not everyone has time to put together their own quiz slides and sometimes it’s hard to think of good ideas.
