Quizzes – great for engagement & lead generation

Are you new to using quizzes for marketing? Let’s give some crucial back story before diving into a more detailed comparison of Survey Anyplace vs Riddle.

Marketers often turn to quizzes for two goals – boosting engagement and/or collecting more qualified leads. And each quiz maker has its own philosophy about what to focus on. To tackle engagement, the developers for each quiz builder create their own mix of quizzes and interactive formats. Some stay laser-focused around a few types – while others cast a wider net, and develop a broad range of content types for their community.

Catching your audience’s attention is one thing – but quizzes also excel at generating viral traffic. Each quiz maker also makes different calculations about how many social networks to support – from Facebook to WhatsApp, Linkedin to Twitter, Messenger, and beyond.

On the lead generation side, quizzes are a seamless fit – catching users’ interest and getting them clicking and interacting. You’ll see up to 40% of all users opting to give their email address and other information.
Most quiz creators will let you add an optional lead generation form – the perfect opportunity to present targeted offers, contest entries, or ask them to receive a free consultation, e-book, or other marketing campaigns.

Okay – with that out of the way, let’s start with a high level overview of each quiz creator.

Survey Anyplace – overview

Founded in 2012, Survey Anyplace is a Dutch company that has focused their development resources into a range of mobile-friendly surveys and quizzes. Their tagline is “Interactive questionnaires without the hassle of a custom-built solution”.

One their key USPs? Unlike some others in the market, Survey Anyplace has added a module with their top plans – allowing personalized downloadable PDF reports.
However this focus on surveys and the reporting side of things comes at a cost – limiting Survey Anyplace to basic customization and data collection.

Survey Anyplace integrations

Survey Anyplace has decided against building their own native integrations to popular marketing software – such as MailChimp, AWeber, or Google Sheets. Instead, they rely entirely on Zapier – which, while flexible, often requires an additional paid subscription from their customers.
This approach also means Survey Anyplace doesn’t offer the breadth in interactive formats as many other quiz makers. For example, comparing Survey Anyplace vs. Riddle, they offer only surveys, plus a basic quiz and personality test – Riddle offers 15.

Survey Anyplace pricing and limitations

Survey Anyplace has four plans, starting at $29 a month. The plus side is that their initial pricing seems competitive; however Survey Anyplace put caps on how many responses you can get – which means you might get charged more if your quiz goes viral.
They are also unclear about their top-tier pricing – generally, we’ve found ‘ask us’ pricing for subscription SaaS services = $500 a month and up.

By comparison – all of Riddle’s pricing plans are completely unlimited. You just pick the features you want – we don’t put limits on how many quizzes you create, quiz takers, or leads you collect. One simple price per plan – simple.

Survey Anyplace: NOT GDPR-compliant

Be very wary of using Survey Anyplace – sure, they say the right things about GDPR-compliance.
But take a look their cookie list, for example – it’s insane. All this data collection by Survey Anyplace does not provide a great deal of confidence that they’re a truly compliant quiz maker.
