Types of Quiz Embeds
Now that you know how to create a quiz of your own, the next important step – and the highlight of this blog – is to embed the quiz so that your creation is accessible to your audience. And we didn’t bring you one but 11 ways in which you can showcase your interactive quiz.
At Outgrow, customization is where the spotlight is. Everything can be presented in the way that you like. So, here you can pick and choose the style you prefer the most for your brand. Let’s tell you all about them!
1. Full Page Embed
Full page embed makes your quizzes appear on the entire screen without any distractions. You can still use your header & footer and have the content between the two.
Here’s how it will look on your webpage:
2. In-Page Embed
If you don’t want to go for a quiz-only page, you can opt for an in-page embed that allows you to keep other website elements along with the quiz on the page. All the other elements will stay intact and the content piece will appear on that part of the page where it is embedded.
Here’s how your quiz will look as an in-page embed:
3. Popup Style Embed
Next up, we have something different! You can embed your quiz as a pop-up based on different triggers. There’s a choice with you – you can either time your pop-up or add exit-intent pop-ups. You can not only customize the look of the pop-up but also decide how you want the pop-up to actually “pop up” on the screen. :p
This is the kind of quiz you can use as a pop-up:
6. Chat Messenger Style Embed
You can also present your quiz in the form of a chatbot with a timed pop-up. The content piece will appear as a chat notification at the bottom corner of your webpage that you can easily customize if you want.
7. Custom Embed Functionality
We respect your choices. So, Outgrow lets you have custom embeds based on your requirements. With this option, you can decide the size and dimensions of your embed easily.
8. Floating Rectangle Style Embed
Your quiz can also be embedded as a floating rectangle that can be customized based on your preference. When clicked on, the content piece will open in the rectangle itself.
9. Greet Bar Style Embed
With a greet bar-style embed, you can show the quiz on the top of the webpage. Needless to say, you can customize the appearance of the greet bar as well.
Here’s how it will appear on top of your screen:
10. Sidenote Style Embed
The sidenote embed can be used as a placeholder on either side of the webpage. When clicked on, it’ll open as a pop-up.
