Unlocking the Secrets to Effective Quiz Ads

Where do you start when launching an ad for your quiz?

When beginning to launch an ad for your quiz, the first crucial step is creating a quiz! My friends at Interact have hundreds of conversion focused quiz templates and they’ve recently launched InteractAI which, you guessed it, creates a quiz for you in a matter of minutes.

If you have your quiz already, then the next step is creating your own landing page for each quiz result so you can add pixels and tracking to monitor ad performance. It’s essential to double-check that your tagging is accurately integrated with your service provider so you can successfully email quiz leads from your ad with the right recommendations and follow-up emails that you want them to get.

Once you’ve got your quiz set up and published, test the funnel a few times to ensure its functionality. This step is paramount as there are various components within the funnel that must operate accurately.

Key Takeaway: When launching an ad for your quiz, it’s crucial to ensure proper setup of result pages, accurate tagging integration, and rigorous testing of the quiz funnel to confirm functionality.

Is there a way to determine if your ad isn’t performing?

Firstly, ensure that your optimization settings are configured correctly. When setting up an ad campaign within your chosen platform (such as Meta), consider your ultimate objective. If your goal is to drive traffic to a quiz, your aim should be to prompt quiz takers to take further action—leaving the ad and providing additional information, essentially becoming a lead.

The primary focus is on converting as many clicks or viewers from your page as possible, aligning with the appropriate campaign objective. If your aim is to generate leads, opt for a lead campaign objective. One effective method to validate your ad’s effectiveness is to ensure that it’s not merely driving traffic but attracting individuals who are genuinely interested in opting in after taking your quiz and providing their name and email.

It’s crucial to analyze the number of link clicks your ad receives. This metric can indicate potential issues with your quiz title or suggest that your quiz requires more detailed information. Moreover, it helps assess whether your content resonates with your target audience. People are unlikely to click on your quiz if they don’t perceive the benefits it offers—they need to anticipate a tangible outcome after taking the quiz.

Monitoring the click-through rate (CTR) provides valuable insights. This metric encompasses everyone who views the ad, clicks to learn more, expands the ad, and examines the comments. The goal here is to interrupt the scroll and capture their interest. Additionally, the link click-through rate is crucial as it measures how many users actually click through the ad to access the quiz.

Key Takeaway: If your ad isn’t yielding the desired results, it’s time to reassess your ad campaign strategy. Keep a close eye on the number of link clicks you receive (the click-through rate) to gauge the effectiveness of your ad.

Is there a distinction in desired audience size or reach between someone offering online services globally online services versus a photographer constrained to a specific area?

I’ve observed both types of businesses successfully engaging large audiences, ranging from one to five million plus. However, the effectiveness depends on factors such as industry niche and quiz title. It’s crucial to craft a quiz title that sparks curiosity and drives users to eagerly anticipate their results.

Ultimately, the key consideration is whether your audience size is substantial enough to reach at least a thousand people daily. An Ads manager can provide guidance on audience size requirements. If your audience is too small, your ad campaign may not effectively utilize your budget.

For local photographers, Google ads might be a more suitable option. Identifying the geographical location of your potential audience is vital—whether it spans across the US or is confined to a specific area due to the nature of your service. Your advertising budget allocation should align with the type of services you offer.

Key Takeaway: The effectiveness of engaging audiences with quizzes depends on factors such as industry niche, quiz title, and audience size, with local businesses like photographers needing to consider geographical targeting and budget allocation.

If your ad is performing well, how can you determine if you’re generating quality leads?

Typically, the leads generated from a quiz are predominantly cold leads—they’re often entirely new to your company. Attempting to immediately pitch to these leads might result in lower conversion rates due to various factors.

For products priced below $45, such as low-ticket offers, you could experiment with offering them as a tripwire after they complete the quiz. However, if you’re aiming to convert them into high-ticket offers, such as a $3,000 photographer event, it’s essential to guide them through a nurture sequence post-quiz. This approach can effectively encourage these leads to schedule a call with you to explore your services further.

Key Takeaway: nurturing leads post-quiz is crucial for converting them into high-ticket offers, requiring a strategic approach tailored to the product pricing and customer journey.

What are the best strategies for individuals lacking significant organic traffic?

There are several marketing avenues to explore in this scenario. One effective approach is to participate in virtual summits and utilize your quiz as a lead-generation tool. Virtual summits can potentially yield 200 to 300 leads who may opt-in to your lead magnet. Additionally, sharing your quiz within relevant Facebook groups can expand your reach.

For those without a substantial organic following, tapping into other people’s audiences is a valuable tactic. There are numerous avenues beyond paid advertising to drive traffic—consider innovative methods to maximize your reach without relying solely on paid strategies.

Key Takeaway: Utilize virtual summits, Facebook groups, and other innovative methods to expand reach for individuals lacking significant organic traffic.

Would you recommend using a quiz to attract more people for those with low organic traffic?

Absolutely, the effectiveness largely hinges on the quiz itself. It’s crucial to select the most suitable type of quiz for your industry and craft a well-thought-out set of questions. Basic and uninspiring questions are unlikely to yield any meaningful conversion metrics.

Additionally, many people overlook the potential of the quiz results page. Failing to provide takers with further information about their results is a missed opportunity to offer solutions to their problems. Leveraging your email sequence presents numerous opportunities to engage with quiz takers and further pitch your offerings.

When it comes to funnels and quizzes, various factors influence conversion rates. A helpful tip is to keep your quiz concise, with fewer than eight questions—especially when utilizing paid traffic. Given people’s short attention spans, minimizing the number of questions can help maintain engagement throughout the quiz.

Key Takeaway: Quizzes can effectively attract more people, even with low organic traffic, if carefully crafted and tailored to the audience, emphasizing valuable results and utilizing email sequences for engagement.

When does the cost per click become relevant?

The cost per click (CPC) becomes significant when analyzing the effectiveness of your advertising efforts. It is influenced by the creatives you’re testing. By examining the click-through rate (CTR) and link CTR, you can gauge if your ads are generating a high percentage of clicks. Typically, this helps in optimizing the cost per click.

It’s also beneficial to assess the cost per lead—how much it costs to acquire a person’s name or address. Often overlooked, optimizing your ads can contribute significantly to reducing costs.

To lower the cost per click, focus on maximizing various metrics and driving traffic to the landing page. Ensuring that as many users as possible start the quiz upon reaching the landing page can ultimately lead to a decrease in the cost per click.

Key Takeaway: The cost per click (CPC) is important for evaluating ad effectiveness, affected by factors like creatives and click-through rates (CTR). Lowering CPC involves optimizing ads and driving traffic to the landing page.

Using GA4 Tracking

If you’re seeking additional tracking capabilities beyond the meta ads manager, consider integrating your quiz with GA4. This serves as a valuable backup measure, particularly when significant investments are involved. The additional tracking functionality provided by GA4 can offer valuable insights into the performance of your quiz.

Having experimented with various third-party software tracking platforms, I’ve found that they’re not always the most accurate. Therefore, relying on GA4 for tracking purposes can provide more reliable data and ensure better-informed decision-making.

Key Takeaway: Integrating your quiz with GA4 tracking provides reliable data beyond ad manager metrics, offering valuable insights for better decision-making.
