Riddle and MailChimp - a winning combination

Why do Riddle quizzes work so well for lead generation with MailChimp?

It's all about human psychology. 

Auto-sync quiz leads and data with MailChimp

Riddle lets you send easily all this quiz data to MailChimp, which you can use to:

  • Add leads to different lists - based on their responses.
  • Send personalized follow ups - for better conversions.

For example, imagine you're running a travel site - and create a quiz called 'What's your dream holiday?':

  • Quiz takers who got 'You ❤ a good city break!' could get a special 'Save $75 on our Paris holidays' offer.
  • Sun lovers that scored 'You ❤ escaping to the beach!' would receive 'Save $100 on our Mexico getaways'.

Why quizzes rock for lead generation with MailChimp

Most folks get sign ups by showing all of their visitors a (rather annoying) pop-up asking them to sign up for their newsletter. 

We're not big fans of this approach. 

It's like rocking up to a party then asking the first person you meet out on a private date. 

Unless you're George Clooney or Shakira - this probably won't work for you.

A slightly better approach is to offer something for signing up - like a free e-book or white paper. 

That's still not ideal. 

Sticking with our party analogy, that's akin to asking out that first person you met for a date - but at least offering to pay for dinner.

Why pop ups don't work for MailChimp lead generation

If you're like most of us, those approaches are irritating.

Enter quizzes, personality tests, and our 12 other interactive formats.

They work so well (up to 40% of quiz takers will fill in your form) - because they get the reader learning more about their most interesting topic: themselves. 

Instead of a pop up, imagine you tried this:

  • You make an online quiz or personality test - based on each user discovering something about themselves.
  • You have 100% of their attention over the course of 8-12 questions over 3-5 minutes.
  • Then you show your lead generation form right before their results - asking for their name and email.

That's a much more natural process.

Wrapping up our party analogy - showing your lead form at the end of a quiz is like asking someone out only after having a deep, meaningful conversation.

Simple? Sure. But, hey, it works.
