For those who’ve been in the eCommerce game for a while, it’s no secret that quizzes are a popular strategy.
If you’re fairly new to the world of eCommerce, I can tell you from experience (as well as many other marketers that read this who will agree), that quizzes are one of the best and most efficient data collection initiatives for customer acquisition.
There’s a very good chance you’ve engaged with a quiz yourself as part of a brand’s marketing funnel. So, it’s fair to say that you probably have a good idea of what they are and, hopefully, can see the power of what quiz funnels can do (assuming the brand you interacted with has done a good job with their marketing).
I’ll summarise the benefits as to why I think they’re powerful, and you’ll no doubt see throughout the breakdowns of how these stores leverage quizzes for their benefit.
Great for data collection - you can collect more information from your customer, rather than just the standard opt-in strategies that most brands use, such as newsletters, etc.
It’s a smart way of capturing leads (for segmentation and personalisation) - you can guide new visitors who are new to the brand down the right customer journey path, with information and results that makes most sense to their needs. Remember, visitors and consumers can get confused, or even overwhelmed, with the amount of products/items on offer. So, setting up a quiz can help provide clarity.
Find out more about your target customer - by asking the right questions, you’ll can collect the data and see trends of what types of consumers are interacting with your brand, as well as common patterns of needs/requirements they’re looking for.
Great way to engage new visitors (especially if you’re in a competitive category) - As mentioned already, it provides a better-personalised experience for new visitors. I see it as a good tactic against competitors, especially if you can provide a custom result.
Quiz takers usually result in higher conversion rates - taking all the beneficial reasons into account above, it’s no surprise that they are better-qualified audiences. From my experience working with brands who have quizzes, especially when set up and nicely designed, they typically result in improved conversion rates compared to the rest of the visitors who browse and buy.
Okay, so we know the benefits of online quizzes for brands, but having your own quiz doesn’t guarantee success. It needs to be incorporated as part of your overall strategy, and the design and quiz flow needs to be executed really well for it to perform.
What are the key features and attributes that go into a quiz landing page? And what goes into an experience that leads visitors to complete (and be engaged with) your quiz?
Here are some questions and a mini-checklist of items to use as a baseline when exploring both the quiz landing pages, as well as how the quiz flows work.
First, here are some of the key features to look out for when going through these amazing examples when it comes to an awesome quiz landing page:
Is the page optimised for mobile? Remember, most visitors are going to come through mobile, whether it be via paid ads or even organic.
Is it a custom code, or are they using a tool that embeds on the page? Does this render properly?
Do they have a great headline and supporting copy explaining the purpose of the quiz, and why people should complete it? Additionally, is time emphasised? How do they go about explaining why it’s worth doing it?
What’s the positioning of the navigation? Is it included when going through the questions?
Do they have a pop-up for those who may leave the page? What’s the CTA or offer?
What social proof elements do they include? Video or reviews?
What makes the page ‘more fun’ compared to other pages? What makes it ‘pop’ and what elements do they use to get visitors excited to get started?
Then, what are the primary things to look out for when it comes to the flow of questions when visitors are engaging with it?
Again, having an optimised mobile experience is pivotal - the quiz experience needs to be super slick.
How do they collect email addresses? Do they ask for an email at the start, halfway through, or potentially at the end and ask for visitors to exchange an email to see results?
Do they use different messages as support to guide users through it?
What are the various question types used these quizzes use? (i.e. multiple choice questions, dropdowns, etc.).
At the end, with the results or final score, is there a social shares option for people to share their scores or responses?
All of these factors and checklist items to look out for isn’t by any means an exhaustive list, however, it’s a great baseline to cross-check and use as an evaluation tool to compare your existing quiz funnel or perhaps use as a guide for when you’re about to create your own.
Alrighty, let’s jump into these awesome quiz examples.
1. Good Pair Days
Good Pair Days is a wine gift company that has a very straightforward mission: to match people with the best wine that would fit their taste. Such an awesome concept as a business, and I love what these guys are all about.
The main concept is around match-making, so the quiz flow plays a major role in terms of the acquisition of new consumers. By taking their palate quiz, users are then recommended wines that are perfectly curated and customised to their taste preferences.
There are a lot of good learnings from what Good Pair Days have done, in fact, I give it a 10/10 experience. So definitely pay attention if you’re refining your quiz funnel.
Here are some things I like about how they’ve gone about the design:
First, you see the screen above. Once you enter your name, you get a nice personalised welcome that features your name (such a small touch but goes a long way to getting me excited to get answering the questions).
After entering your name, you get automatically redirected to the first question. The quiz is designed to narrow down and segment the participant's wine taste and their wine ‘experience’. Big fan of the copy, as well as the illustrations, which makes it fun and engaging.
As you’ll see, they’re asking the right questions to learn more about the customer. It doesn’t feel intrusive, nor does it feel like they’re asking too many questions since, as users, we’re doing this because we want to know our wine ‘match.’ They do a good job of setting expectations from the start.
Below is an example of a focus qualifying question, which asks how much customers usually spend on the likes of wine. It’s a good question tactic for segmentation. For example, Good Pair Days can send tailored emails and offers to these specific segments.
Once you’ve gone through all the questions, a form appears where customers are supposed to enter their email addresses to create an account. This is where users can then unlock what their win match looks like. I’d say they would get a good conversion rate here, as entering an email to find out the results is not a big commitment.
Once you do, you automatically get directed to a custom results cart that includes all of the recommended wines.
Honestly, world-class quiz experience from the very start to the end - huge kudos to the team at Good Pair Days.
2. Honey Pot
Honey Pot is a feminine care brand that uses herbal and plant-derivative ingredients. They’re particularly known for their pads, washes, and wipes, and they also sell supplements.
They have a quiz that recommends the products that are most suitable for their customers:
Given the nature of the brand, they still want to make sure that everyone feels included in what they do. This means servicing people of all genders.
The questions they incorporate help narrow down what kind of product the customer needs and what issue is to be addressed.
At the end, they have a signup form that requires the input of an email address to see results, with a promo code for the additional benefit of reward points (to encourage conversions of emails and, ultimately, sales).
Similar to Good Pair Days, Stompy is a wine company that uses taste-matching technology to recommend curated wine pairings to their customers. They then continue to improve their recommendations over time as customers rate the wines that have been shipped to them.
What makes them different is that they source their wine from top winemakers, and each one has been carefully chosen by their resident Master of Wine.
This is what their quiz flow looks like (which is also really well executed by their team):
Introductory copy that lets people know it won’t take too much of their time to finish the quiz. Also, I love the headline “Taste Mapper”.
As you start, you then see this screen, which highlights the ‘table of contents’ of what users will be going through. Just absolutely awesome work with the design and illustrations.
Here’s an example of a question, which is a rating of all the wine styles they offer.
A different set of answers are available for those who may be unfamiliar with certain wine styles, which helps a certain market feel less ignorant.
The option to rate flavour zones or specific wines, depending on what the customer may be more familiar with.
Once you’ve completed it, you then get asked to simply enter your email and zip code.
After entering the details, you then get taken to a customised cart of the top recommendations based on the choices you picked. Really slick experience overall.
4. Front of the Pack
Front of the Pack is a dog food company that only uses substantial ingredients, without any fillers or additives, to make sure that pets grow up healthy. They also sell health supplements to help ensure the proper nourishment of dogs. Servings and prices will depend on the weight and breed of your dog, so they have a quiz that will help provide users a customised plan according to their needs:
They will first ask for your dog’s name. You can create multiple unique plans if you have multiple dogs.
A question that considers whether or not your dog is spayed, with a note that explains how this affects your dog’s metabolism.
The notes through each of the questions to provide more context, is great for visitors to understand why Front of the Pack needs to collect this information.
A specification of how old the dog is, as this is also important when factoring in its nutritional needs. At all points, owners are reassured that they’re getting something unique to their dogs.
Overall, they use a good mix of question types. They also make sure the “progress bar” is clear, which helps motivate those to finish.
Then at the end, you’re presented with product recommendations.
Blume is a skincare brand that sells products for facial care, body care, and period care. They use natural ingredients and market their brand as a means to be your best natural self - filters unneeded, imperfections embraced.
They have a skin quiz that recommends the best products depending on their customer’s needs:

A show of the issues their products can help address, with the option to choose as many as you need.
They give customers the power to decide how many skin care products they can handle on a daily basis.

Next, you get a personalised set of questions, and you go down on different paths depending on the issue the customer chooses to address.
Statements that are meant to narrow down the source of the customer’s concern.
The UX is awesome, with both the % completion progress, as well as the progress bar. They also do a good job of mixing up the question types, between multiple choice, sliders, and short answer inputs.
The option to get straight into supplements or to get a more specific microbiome test that could help customers discover what they need in depth.
8. Krave Beauty
Krave Beauty is a popular, Korean-inspired skincare brand that adheres to the idea that less is more.

Throughout, visitors get served questions that helps Krave Beauty get to know their customers’ personalities and preferences. Good layout with 50/50 split between images and questions taking up the screen.
An email subscription form with witty copy.
Results are presented like dating profiles, and each product has its own personality.

What’s then super impressive is the custom product recommendations cart based on what I answered. Seriously amazing work from the Little Company team. It also includes a message from the founder, a custom cart with products, an awesome discount offer with then more social proof and other related products below. Simply awesome all-round.

The second question asked will be solely dependent on what the customer chooses as their main issue.

Their quiz has mainly multiple choices per question, but there is also a section wherein customers can manually type additional information, which truly adds to the customised feel.
People with specific skincare issues can even point out which particular area of the face experience the most trouble.
Once you finish, you’ll get a personalised recommendation.
41. Juiced Bikes
Juiced Bikes is an electric bike brand that offers a good number of options, depending on what their customers need. They are well known in the industry for being one of the first direct-to-consumer e-bikes, as they uphold superior quality at cheaper prices.
They have an e-bike quiz to help customers get started:
The first questions are meant to narrow down the use of the bike and where it will be used most frequently.
Customers can choose the features they want or need the most.
There is a height scale to make sure that the bike will fit its user.
Finally, you’re then presented with the results and recommended bikes. Overall, done a great job of keeping it simple.
Gerber is inarguably one of the most famous baby food brands in the world, forever known for their cute baby logo and healthy infant treats. They now offer a meal planning quiz on their website, to make sure that babies get the optimal nutrients that they need.
Questions that help them identify where the baby is along with his or her development.
I like the design and UX of the quiz on this page, with the static USPs (keeps it top of mind as parents go through it).
Consideration of dietary preferences that parents may have for their baby. They also include “why we ask?” as part of most questions, in case any parents have some doubts/any resistance to what to answer or whether or not they feel comfortable answering.
Customers can choose whether they just want products from the organic line or they’re open to all products.
Once finished, you get a customised menu plan. The team at Gerber have done a magnificent job from start to finish, especially on this plans page.
Aday is a minimal, sustainable clothing brand that focuses on creating capsule pieces that women can use and reuse as often as they’d like. Each item was designed to be versatile, comfortable, and long-lasting, regardless of the style their customers are going for.
They do have a quiz meant to help their customers find the perfect pieces for them.
Questions are developed to help their algorithm understand the go-to style of the customer.
Questions about where the clothes will be worn, for an understanding of how they’re supposed to fit the customer.
The quiz will take customers to a link, which will open a new window showing their clothing results.
Here’s an example of the recommended wardrobe.
44. Three Ships
Three Ships is a beauty company that anchors their brand identity on being natural, safe, and effective. They are best known for their creams and serums at decent prices. Their goal is to have everyone using clinically proven products made from clean ingredients, and they have a skincare quiz to encourage customers to create such a routine.
The call to action button to take the quiz reassures customers that this will only take a minute.
Cute and colourful icons to match the answer options.
The choice of specific products so that recommendations will be narrowed down immediately.
As we’ve already seen with some of the others, you get asked to exchange an email for a 15% off discount code, or you can simply skip.
And here is the results I got, with a description of what my overall ‘skin persona’ is.
Cheers is an alcohol health brand that has been encouraging responsible alcohol consumption since 2017. Their products are 100% science-based and backed, and everything is vegetarian and gluten-free. They are best known for their after-alcohol aid supplement, which helps minimise the negative effects of alcohol on the body. They also have rehydration solutions, liver supplements, and multivitamins.
So, they put up a quiz to help their customers know which product to go with:
Unlike all the other quizzes I’ve spoken about, their questions are not distributed per page or section. All customers need to do is scroll down and answer everything.
Questions that are meant to help narrow down how tolerant the customer is of alcohol in general.
Then, once you go through each of them, you get taken to probably the gold standard of customised cart pages I’ve ever seen. Just look at how much of an awesome job the team at Cheers have done.
Oresta is a marketplace store based in Canada which curates the best organic and cruelty-free gifts. They have a 1-min skin quiz which is an embed from Octane AI (a really awesome tool for creating quizzes on Shopify), which is a great low-cost solution for stores that don’t want to build a custom quiz.
The embed from Octane AI is really smooth - when you test it out, you’ll see how smooth it is.
Based on my selections, I received a custom result with products that could help with my specific skin type and routine, which is awesome.
As you can see, there’s also a video CTA that talks more about the products from Oresta. Smart idea to have this at the end, which can help reinforce trust and the reasons why Oresta is a great option for buying products.
47. Sonday the Label
Sonday is a maternity clothing label made for the modem mum. Similar to many of the other references I’ve talked about in this guide, they use embedded quizzes which make it really easy to create them at scale. And that’s exactly what they’ve done, by using Interact (an app for creating interactive quizzes), they’ve created multiple based on the objectives of what current mothers or mothers-to-be are looking for.
Looking at one of them now, you can see the embed takes up good real estate on the page.
They use images per question, which is good for breaking up the wording.
When you finish answering, you then get asked for an opt-in to see the results. Personally, mixed feelings about this strategy for opting in. If we compare the examples above with Oresta, I’d say it would be better if they provided a custom cart based on the answers to keep it all within one experience. Having said that, this strategy does work from experience - it all comes down to testing and what’s effective in order to drive purchases.
⚡ Frequently Asked Questions ⚡
Why should eCommerce businesses create quizzes?
One of the best initiatives you can do as an eCommerce store is to create an engaging quiz that can collect leads, educate visitors, and nurtures them until they become a customer. From my personal experience, I’ve seen many clients do extremely well with quiz funnels, and there are a few reasons why. Firstly, it’s a great way to capture lead details that are different to your typical lead magnets. Second, it provides a personalised experience for new audiences to become engaged with a new brand, which can lead to higher conversions. Thirdly, it’s a smart strategy for businesses that have a lot of product options and are in a crowded space. You see this a lot with many beauty and skincare brands (which is a very competitive category), where they have a quiz taker on offer for visitors to take part in. For example, a classic one you’ll see is skincare companies that they’ll try to get new visitors to take a free quiz to find out what their skin type quiz result may be. It’s kind of like doing a personality test, but for your skin. This is a smart way to help users who may be confused by the various product options out there and what’s the right type of product for their skin type. Finally, quizzes are a useful tool for store owners as you can collect some awesome actionable insights, which can help improve your offering, as well as understand more about what your ideal target audience is looking for in products.
What is a good example of a quiz landing page example that you recommend store owners should try out and get inspired by?
It’s hard to nail down one awesome example of a quiz landing page because many of the above I’ve talked about in the guide are really good for their target categories and demographics. I’ll pick one good example which has a great UI and one with the best structure/UX. The best example UI-wise that has done a great job is Feals. Love the colours and branding and the use of high-quality imagery. The 50/50 split between quiz questions and images on the right-hand side is engaging, and it’s also mobile friendly. Then the best example for structure and UX, would have to be ‘The Secret’. The use of illustrations to demonstrate answers (they look on brand), the use of white and spacing to make choices clear, the use of a progress bar, and the overall layout are key things that are executed well.
How do the top eCommerce stores use quiz results to build better personalisation experiences?
One of the benefits of running quizzes for online stores is the data collection opportunity. Depending on the length of your quiz, you can collect insights based on the answers of those participating, whether it be particular attributes, demographics, geo-location, trends and other factors. The primary objective of why quizzes are a great opportunity is that it helps with multiple purposes. In other words, it’s a particular initiative that achieves multiple goals within one. Those objectives include; collecting data on your customer personas and getting insights into what your personas are looking for in terms of features and solutions, and it’s a great way to funnel visitors into segments, where you can then do more personalised targeting for marketing purposes based on their quiz results. In terms of where the data may go, there are multiple ways to do so. For example, you can automatically send the quiz results to a Google sheet, where a data-cruncher or analyst can help you decipher through results and present actionable insights that you can use as takeaways to help improve your marketing.
What are the different types of online quizzes that you can create to generate leads?
I’m confident, regardless of the industry or category you serve in, that there are quiz ideas that can help you collect leads. Here are a few examples to get you inspired (on top of all the amazing references I’ve shared in this guide) to get your creative juices flowing. If you’re an alcoholic beverages company (e.g. a few wine companies do a great job at this), you can create a ‘drinks’ match type quiz to help visitors see which type of drink/beverage matches their personality type. If you’re in the hair care business, you can create a hair type quiz, which helps people pick which products best suits their hair requirements. If you’re in the pet industry, you can create a dog quiz to help dog owners choose products to help better care for their little ones. If you’re an eCommerce marketer or founder reading this, you can see where I’m going with this and the endless possibilities of different types of quizzes you can come up with. I’m hoping just be reading these high-level references, as well as exploring the landing pages I break down, you’ll no doubt come up with some tests that you can run as quizzes.
What are the best Shopify apps to create engaging quizzes and interactive content experiences?
I’ve tried and tested a few Shopify quiz maker apps, and I certainly have a few that I recommend. They all have similar robust features, and they’re user-friendly enough for those who may not have done quizzes before on their store. My recommendations that I encourage you to explore further into are; “Product recommender” by Revenue Hunt, Octane AI, Quiz Kit by Presidio Creative, and Jebbit. They each naturally have some strengths in certain features against one another, including the likes of quiz types, advanced options around personalisation and custom design, as well as conditional logic options, but each of them does provide a great experience when it comes to creating an engaging quiz that helps you generate leads and nurture them for marketing.
