From product recommendations to paid ads, here are 6 ideas for enhancing your marketing with interactive quizzes.

According to DemandGen, interactive content is twice as engaging as static content.

Fortunately for marketers hoping to boost engagement, interactivity doesn’t have to involve complicated, AI-powered immersive experiences or bank-breaking technology. Interactive content can be as simple as asking your site visitors a few questions.

That’s why quizzes are such a powerful marketing tool. Not only do you get visitors involved and engaged, you can also use the data gathered from quizzes to power your marketing efforts.

If you’re looking to introduce quizzes into your marketing plans, you’re in the right place. Here, we’ll list 6 types of quizzes and the benefits you can expect from them.

1) Capture more emails with a lead quiz that puts visitor knowledge to the test.

From quiz shows on TV to trivia board games, people love showing what they know. That makes quizzes a great way to get new site visitors involved right away. Once these visitors engage with your quiz, you can convert them into email subscribers.

These types of lead capture quizzes can work for nearly any industry. For instance, nonprofits & advocacy groups can quiz visitors on issues before inviting them to sign up to stay informed.

Sink your teeth into this: here's a pop-up quiz that puts visitor knowledge of sharks to the test.

If you have a media & publishing site, you can test knowledge of industry news, then ask them if they want to stay up-to-date by subscribing to your newsletter. eCommerce sites with health & wellness products might also quiz visitors on health issues related to those that their products address. Or, if you sell an online course through a platform like Kajabi, you can even use quizzes to provide a preview of what students can expect to learn.

Use a pop-up teaser to promote quizzes to your new site visitors, and you can turn trivia questions into a non-trivial increase in email signups.


2) Collect user preferences to personalize your marketing.

According to Salesforce, 57% of shoppers are willing to share data in exchange for personalized offers. By adding a quick quiz to your email signup forms or SMS opt-in pop-ups, you can collect important first-party data about your new subscribers.

This simple pop-up captures data about style preferences.

Once captured, make sure you put this data to use! With preference data, you can:

  • Segment users into different email or SMS lists to send them more targeted content.
  • Use dynamic content to personalize your emails with recommendations and other content based on declared preferences.
  • Show personalized CTAs on your site to increase chances of conversion.

Let’s say your site sells mattresses. With a preference quiz, you can allow visitors to tell you whether they sleep on their back, side, or stomach. If a user indicates that they sleep on their side, you can use that information to send relevant promotions or personalize their onsite experience with a targeted banner:

Using preference quiz data, you can connect your website visitors with the perfect deal.

As long as you use preference data to provide value, visitors can rest easy about parting with this data.


3) Convert shoppers with product recommendation quizzes.

Product recommendation quizzes are an eCommerce triple threat: they can increase email signups, collect user preferences, and use those preferences to drive sales with an engaging experience.

These quizzes convert both email subscribers and customers by providing value through personalized recommendations.

Instead of having to comb through your site to find a product and purchase blindly, shoppers can be more certain that they’re making the right choice. This makes shoppers more likely to purchase, especially if you sweeten the deal by including a coupon code with their results.

This quiz includes a dynamic field for a one-time-use coupon code. Each visitor sees a unique code, preventing codes from being shared to people who don't take the quiz.

And if they don’t buy right away? You have their email address and valuable preference data, allowing you to nudge them towards the purchase with personalized communication.

There are plenty of apps that make it easy to add a quiz to your Shopify store, or whatever eCommerce platform you use. If you want to create a product quiz for your site, we’ve put together a guide for you. Check out “How to Build an eCommerce Product Quiz.


4) Decrease bounce rates by guiding new visitors to the right part of your site with a quiz.

Even a well-designed site may require visitors to do a bit of digging to find what they need. Unfortunately, many visitors may not have the patience. People expect to find what they need right away, and if they don’t, they’ll simply go elsewhere.

With a marketing quiz, you can engage new visitors immediately, ensuring they see the right content quickly. For instance, this quiz for a medical site collects data about the visitor’s profession to point them to the right email content, but you can just as easily configure the last page of the pop-up quiz to show a CTA that directs them to the right landing pages.

Asking new visitors a couple questions can help you point them towards the content they need.

These quizzes go beyond simply providing a better user experience for your visitors. By helping ensure that users find the content they want, you can improve your site’s bounce rates, sending a good signal to Google and potentially helping your search rankings as well.


5) Use marketing quizzes to prequalify new leads.

Quizzes aren’t just for B2C brands; B2B sites can join in on the fun too! Sure, maybe a sales quiz isn’t quite as fun as a shoppable product quiz, but your sales team might appreciate them!

Instead of collecting demo request information in a single long form, use a multi-step form to capture lead data progressively. This data can inform your sales outreach, help you tailor your product demos to prospect needs, or even just point visitors towards the right content.

With Digioh, you can capture this quiz data, then embed a Calendly widget into the last page of your form to schedule a demo right away.


6) Improve ROAS by promoting marketing quizzes in paid ads.

If you run paid advertising, your eye is on that ever-important return on ad spend (ROAS) number.

Whatever kind of quiz you create, take advantage of their high performance by adding them to a paid advertising campaign. Promoting a quiz in an ad CTA is a great way to get people to click, while engaging them with an interactive quiz makes it more likely that they will convert.

For instance, if you have a product recommendation quiz, create an ad image that invites users to discover what items fit their style or personality.

Instead of simply showing them a few products, quizzes ensure that the products you show them are on point:

Even better, quizzes are more shareable than static content, potentially allowing you to squeeze even more value from a social campaign.

By tapping into the curiosity of users scrolling their social media feed, you might just convert a few new customers!


Marketing Quizzes: Get interactive, and get results.

Whether you have an eCommerce site or a SaaS product, quizzes can help you capture leads, grow your list, and drive sales.

Of course, building a quiz can be easier said than done. There are many quiz solutions that offer easy-to-use quiz capabilities but, drafting the quiz, implementing the logic, and integrating it with your stack can still take time.

That’s why Digioh helps new customers design, build, and launch their first quiz. We’ll consult with you to ensure your quiz is on-brand, seamlessly integrated with your ESP or other martech, and engineered for success.
