Quiz Works – Online Quiz Creator

Quiz Works – Online Quiz Creator

Online Quiz Creator is a better than average quiz creation platform which, for a reasonable monthly fee, including a completely free version with limited capability, enables you to build quite respectable online quizzes.

Quiz Works Online Quiz Creator

Since it became better known that quizzes, competitions and surveys were more effective at gaining people’s attention and engagement on Social Media and elsewhere than other types of content, there seems to be an abundance of Quiz making software on the market. Which is good.

Upon closer inspection however, some are better than others and some are quite lame by comparison to the best of breed which, right now, is probably Dialogr.

But what of Online Quiz Creator, what’s on offer there and how does it compare?

Well, the range of quizzes that can be built certainly seems comprehensive and would, I’m sure, meet the needs of most people. those requiring something a bit special, more sophisiticated perhaps, might find it runs out of steam but it’s well worth considering before moving onto more expensive options.

Firstly, Online Quiz Creator lets you create quizzes that can be run on any platform – mobile, tablet or desktop.

Next, it offers a range of variations, as can be seen on the next image:

We’ve tried to build some fairly complex quizzes in this package, so that we can write a meaningful Quiz Works review at some point in the future, and we have been very impressed with the results.

Built In LMS Option.

One of the barriers to delivering online quizzes to customers or, for example, employees within a ompany, has been the need for an LMS – Learning Management System. Historically these have been quite expensive and out of reach for many. Now, Quiz Works have addressed that with Online Quiz Creator which has its own low cost LMS.

A range of plans to suit all types of organisation.

Online Quiz Creator offers a completely free of charge entry level plan (known as the “Tiny Owl” plan) which should be more than adequate for you to evauate the package with. Paid plans, which open up more options, begin at $20/month for the “Smart Owl” pland and go up to the $99/month “Corporate Owl”.

There’s also the option of a free demo – guided by one of their staff, to really show you what the package can do. You will also find a range of sample quizzes for you to try.

This is a major breakthrough in quiz making software that doesn’t cost a fortune or need an IT team to operate. It’s relatively cheap and very easy to use – we recommend it as being at least “worth a look”.

OptinMonster – Pop-Up Forms For Email List Building

Love them or hate them, pop-up forms can often make the difference between losing a potential customer and signing one up for your mailing list – OptinMonster gives you popup power!

Optinmonster is designed to solve a common marketing problem. Getting visitors onto your website takes time and effort, and usually money as well, especially if you are using pay per click ads or something similar to attract people into your marketing funnel.

OptinMonster Gig

That’s why, when you do get a website visitor, it is very important to do everything you can to get some kind of conversion from that lead – even if it doesn’t result in a sale straightaway. Unfortunately, however, all too often the visitor will leave the website without any further interaction – this is what Google calls a “bounce” and it uses this to produce a metric known as “Bounce Rate”. This is a double-hit for website owners. Not only have they paid money to get a visitor on the website as a result of clicking on an ad or as a result of expensive SEO work to their website, but they may also get penalised by Google for having a high Bounce Rate – Google interprets a bounce as being an indicator of the website, your website, being unsuitable for the visitors they are sending to it.

Take a look at your Bounce Rate, you can see it in your Google Analytics reports, which are free of charge, and if it is higher than around 15% it means that far too many people are landing on your website but not exploring beyond the page that they have landed on.

Somehow, some way, you have to try and get the visitor to give you at least some kind of engagement or commitment and by far and a way the most popular and widely used technique is to try and persuade them to sign up for your mailing list – a newsletter, special offers update, money-off voucher, etc.

There are many ways to do that and, for those who are running a WordPress based website, OptinMonster is a WordPress plugin that will open up a wide range of pop-up form options.

The OptinMonster plugin gives you access to a wide range of forms including lightbox popups, floating bars, slide-ins, sidebar forms, and many more. The plugin comes with its own useful analytics reporting facility and there are integrations with many third party packages including Infusionsoft, Aweber, GetResponse, Mailchimp etc.

OptinMonster make particular reference to their “Exit Intent” technology that captures site visitors who display intent to leave the page/site and serve up a popup designed to keep them onboard. As they say, “We detect user behavior and prompt them with a targeted campaign at the precise moment they are about to leave.” All I can say is that this stuff really works, yes it annoys some oeple but i’ve seen signup rates double, triple and even more as a result of exiytt intent popus being fired at the appropriate time.

A/B Testing built in.

OptinMonster Popup Forms A/B Testing Option

This enables you to run multiple popups side by side and find the combination of words, images, placement and timing that produces the best results. Priceless.

Speaking of price, what does all this popup wizardry cost? Well, how about $9 for an entry level account for a single site? Yes, just $9 to get some real signup power for your online business. Add more accounts and more functionality with the $19 Plus account for up to 3 sites or go the whole hog at $29 for all the functions and unlimited sites. I think OptinMonster is the bargain of a lifetime. Unfortunately they have decided not to offer a free trial but there is a 14 day money back guarantee – less than the statutory requirement had they been a UK company – but still probably long enough for you to give OptinMonster a test without risking your $9.

DilogR – Create Online Quizzes & Lots More

DilogR is a well established, popular and full-featured quiz building app that will meet the needs of the more sophisticated content marketer.

DilogR Quiz Builder

As quiz builders go, It isn’t cheap, and when you fully understand the scope of what it has to offer, you’ll understand why.

DilogR has the kind of quiz-building capabilities that go far beyond the basic multiple choice question model – although it can, of course, do those as well. When you want to produce something more sophisticated, including what DilogR call “Advanced Persona Quizzes” e.g. “what kind of superhero are you?” where the assesment received by the candidate depends on the combination of answers given, then your options are fewer and DialogR starts to look like very good value.

DilogR Quiz Marketing

DilogR is a platform that lets you unify All Your Content across any kind of device from a single platform. You can generate high-quality leads using quizzes, videos and hyper-targeted offers.

DilogR apps enable you to capture valuable realtime data to improve your campaign analytics.

You can combine, integrate and analyse your customer’s engagement level on social media platforms and elsewhere on the web, across any platform and any device.

DilogR is probably the only platform that enables you to incorporate quizzes, surveys, polls, assessments, interactive images, interactive video, and other media, all in a single location.

DilogR integrates with a number of popular CRMs, email marketing platforms and other packages and services to further expand its usefulness in a sales and marketing environment.

You can send video data with DilogR directly into a marketing automation platform such as Infisionsoft, Active Campaign and Hubspot as well as Email Marketing Systems like Aweber. You can use this data for lead scoring, segmentation, and ROI tracking.  Enhance your marketing efforts by sending highly targeted content to your most engaged leads at just the right time based on their video viewing history.

Pricewise, this is not a service you wolud subscribe to unless you really needed it. Entry level is $99/month rising up in a single step to $299 for the Pro version, which is what most people will need. That’s a lot and I’m not saying it isn’t worth it but, only if you really need it and can get some benefit from it in terms of extra business. There’s a free trial for 14 days so maybe give that a try first.

Wufoo – Website Forms Design Plaform

Every website needs forms – enquiries, surveys, questionaires, applications – you know the kind of thing. Wufoo lets you easily design and implement all of those, and many more, without ever writing a single line of code.

There are lots of forms builders out these and they vary in quality and ease of use but WuFoo is one of the good guys. When I’m told that I can do something, that would usually require  developer, without touching a line of code, I am, to say the least, sceptical.

So it was refreshing to find that Wufoo really does deliver on this promise – you really can create very useful forms without writing code and that is a huge bonus as far as I’m concerned.

Wufoo provides a set of form building and related tools to enable anyone to design, build and manage online forms using an intuitive drag and drop interface.

The theme designer lets you add your logo and brand colours or you can select from a range of professionally-designed colour palettes. There’s also a library of ready-to-use templates to get you started right away.

Wufoo form builder

Just a few of the ready-to-run form templates supplied by Wufoo.

Forms don’t have to be simple – the rule builder opens up the possibility to build dynamic forms that use logic you’ve specified in order to carry out certain actions including showing and hiding fields, skipping pages or emailing specific individuals based on responses and selections made on the form.

Wufoo make hosting your online forms easy – there is a code manager which provides a number of copy and paste code snippets to enable you to embed your form on to your website, your blog, email,  newsletters and Facebook pages.

To keep tabs on what is going on, there are dynamic, customisable form performance reports and form analytics to give you the metrics you need about your forms,including number of submissions, bounce rate, time spent on submissions etc.

You can request form notifications: Wufoo sends you emails or text messages to keep you updated about your online form submissions. They also offer an online payment feature so you can easily process credit cards from your users after gathering information from them via a Wufoo-powered form.

You can rely on Wufoo to look after your form data and keep your submissions safe and secure – full data encryption takes place when you collect data in a Wufoo form.

All of which looks pretty good to me, we haven’t carried out a full WuFoo review yet but we intend to do so.

WuFoo pricing information

Great news on the pricing front too – everyone can sigh up for a “free forever” account with up to 3 forms before any payment is needed so you can really get to know the package before you need to make any financial investment. Too good to miss!
