Looking to grow your audience and qualify potential customers through quizzes? You’ve probably come across the two market leaders – Riddle and Qzzr. Check out our quiz maker comparison – highlighting the key differences between these two platforms.

(Sure, we’ve got a soft spot for Riddle – this is our blog after all – but our feature by feature comparison backs this up.)

Quiz maker comparison: how many quiz types?

Qzzr is a solid quiz platform – with a nice user interface and the published quizzes look great.

However, they’re limited to two types of quizzes – what we call a ‘pop quiz’ with right/wrong answers and a personality test that returns an overall result based on how you answered.

Riddle goes further, offering:

  • Eight different quiz tools
  • Pop quiz and personality test, as well as listicles, ranked lists, two types of polls, and flexible surveys
  • Our unique ‘interactive story‘ – a flexible branching logic quiz where each user sees different questions based on their individual responses.

Quiz maker comparison: branding and customization

Nobody likes a 3rd party quiz widget sitting on their site.

It’s disruptive to the user experience – so both Riddle and Qzzr offer a number of options for seamlessly blending your quiz, list, or poll into your site.

Custom fontsENTERPRISEENTERPRISE

Riddle offers a greater range of options across all of our plans – with even our BASIC option providing full font and color choices. Our PRO is a fully white label option as well – you can remove all Riddle branding and add your own.

By comparison, Qzzr’s BASIC plan limits creators to 8 colors, and their PRO plan still includes Qzzr branding.


Quiz maker comparison: lead generation and data capture

Getting your audience involved and clicking with a quiz is only half the process.

Quizzes, lists, and polls are brilliant ways to gather email address and collect user responses – perfect for:

  • Contests – ex. “Answer 90% or higher in our quiz – be entered to win!”
  • Lead generation – qualify potential customers and send them the right message, based on their responses

Both Qzzr and Riddle let you gather emails and user responses. The key differences lie in:

  1. Pricing – Qzzr only enables these features with their ENTERPRISE option, while they are available on all Riddle plans.
  2. Flexibility – Riddle goes beyond Aweber and MailChimp, and lets you connect your quiz to any data system on the planet with our Zapier and webhook integration options.

Quiz maker comparison: customer service

Creating a great set of quiz tools is just the start. You also need to provide world-class support to all of your customers – both large and small.
