Social Media Marketing Quizzes & Trivia

Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Social media is email’s "secret weapon."

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Actually, email is social media’s "secret weapon" because it's the foundation layer for building audience and response.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Email subscribers have been conditioned through the years to only want discounts and freebies.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Many subscribers do opt in to receive discounts and freebies, but that isn't the only reason. For example, some still like email for receiving information and entertainment--so long as that’s what they think they signed up for. The key lies in setting the right expectations from the start.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Incentivized subscribers are less responsive over time than non-incentivized subscribers.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Incentives may get you more subscribers, but those short-term results won’t do you much good down the road when those same subscribers stop paying attention to your messaging. If you’re going to offer incentives, also determine ways to clearly and repeatedly prove your email program’s value to these subscribers beyond the incentive, so they have a reason to continue engaging and responding.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Email drives purchases in all channels.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Now that more email is being consumed via mobile devices such as smartphones, we're realizing email’s broad influence on both online and offline purchasing activity.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The free whitepaper a company offers on its homepage is also a good incentive to use for motivating new subscribers to opt in to the company’s email program.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Subscribers expect something of value in return for giving you their email addresses, but that value needs to be exclusive to your subscriber base. There’s little incentive to subscribe if it’s something anyone can get on your homepage (or elsewhere).

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Email recipients expect marketing messages to be personalized.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True

    Subscribers know that companies can leverage their personal data to provide them with more relevant content--because they see other marketers already doing it.
