No Shame Series: The Story Behind Thrive Quiz Builder

Remember the day when you got your hands on your first cellphone?

You could call or text anyone any time you wanted, even if you were at the airport, in your car or on the beach. No more missed calls, just pure freedom.

You could even play Snake when you were waiting for the metro! Because there’s no way you didn’t have a Nokia..


Now, look at the cell phone you have today. Or should I call it:

  • Your calendar
  • Your fitness coach
  • Your notebook
  • Your 4K camera
  • Your media player
  • Your e-reader
  • Your inbox...

Oh, and by the way, you can also make calls with it.

Now, should Nokia be embarrassed of that old brick phone?

Absolutely not! Even though you probably wouldn’t give up your smartphone for your first cell, it was a perfect fit at the time.

The important thing to realize is that even Nokia had to go through the learning curve to be able to improve.

The Nokia of Quiz Builders

Long before we created Thrive Themes, we had an idea to build a quiz builder for WordPress. It’s a fun, easy way to get people engaged, segment them and turn them into leads.

So we did. We were working day and night with a handful of people. Then one day, Viral Quiz Builder was born.

It was the shining star among all the quiz builders: easy customization, different outcomes, opt-in gates, social sharing options...anything you need!

Well, needed, at the time.

The more WordPress plugins we created and the more we learnt about them, the more obvious it was that Viral Quiz Builder wouldn’t fit into the Thrive Themes family.

It was too much of an outsider: it didn’t reflect the level we were aiming for.

So even though the plugin was still getting sales, we decided to stop selling it for good.

What's Going on Now?

It’s time to get rid of your ancients cell phones and get a smartphone finally.

So here it is, the reincarnation of Viral Quiz Builder, the new kid on the block: Thrive Quiz Builder!

It’s not just the name we changed to make it fit the Thrive Themes brand. We kept the basic concept and took everything else to the next level.

Important Note for Viral Quiz Builder Customers

If back in the day you purchased Viral Quiz Buider from us, make sure you check your inbox. We have a little treat for our loyal customers!

Without Viral Quiz Builder, we couldn’t have made this happen. We needed the experience and all the feedback we got from you to be able to grow and make real improvements happen.

Let me just point out a few things...

No More Guessing

They say once you’ve flown first class, it’s hard to go back. Which is how I felt when I tried to go back to Viral Quiz Builder..

I’m so used to using a front-end editor that, when I was testing Viral Quiz Builder at the writing of this post, I felt like being kicked out from first class and sent back to economy. No visuals, no drag and drop and not even close to WYSIWYG?

In Viral Quiz Builder you create a quiz keeping your fingers crossed that it will look the way you imagine in your head.

Nobody wants to waste their time with guessing. It should be clear what’s going on.

For example, this is how you would build your opt-in gate with Viral Quiz Builder:

All the quiz building happened in the back-end WordPress dashboard

All the quiz building happened in the back-end WordPress dashboard

The editor was back-end, and you had to save and preview every time to know what your opt-in gate looked like.

Most WordPress plugins worked like that at the time, but it was a good start - you could still create quizzes.

However, as front-end editors became a thing and we developed Thrive Content Builder, we knew it was possible to implement a live, drag-and-drop, what-you-see-is-what-you-get editor.

The result is this front-end, live, easy to use platform:


Thrive Content Builder and Thrive Landing pages have been replaced by Thrive Architect, which now has 271 pre-designed page templates and you can preview them all in our landing pages gallery. I need to say more?

It's More Realistic

What’s your favorite season: summer or winter? It doesn’t matter which one you choose, because in the next question, we’re gonna ask you about skiing regardless.

See how stupid that is?

But it’s true - in Viral Quiz Builder, one question followed the other, no matter what the answer was. Therefore the questions could easily feel out of place.

Don’t worry, we’re learning from our mistakes.

Questions don’t have to be linear anymore. You can add different questions after every answer and it will all look like a fun and colorful mind map.

So no more nonsense like this:

Now you can combine questions and answers in any way you fancy!

Look how nice! Hopefully your quiz will make more sense than mine, too...

The Best Variation

If you’ve used our products before, you already know what’s coming. Yep, A/B testing!

This is another HUGE addition to the plugin.

Want to see if more people start your quiz when you add an image? You can do that. Or test if more people opt-in after taking your quiz depending on the answer snippet? You can do that too...

Don’t leave anything to chance - these quizzes are more than just a fun way to let your visitors figure out which character they are from The Lord of the Rings.

It’s your way to get highly targeted, quality subscribers and customers.

This is why we added the A/B testing feature to Thrive Quiz Builder so that you find the best possible way to generate real quality, accurately targeted leads.

Advanced User Experience

Let’s face it: Viral Quiz Builder worked, but it definitely wasn’t pretty.

Sure, looking good is not the only important thing (would you marry a pretty girl who is dumb as hell?) but paying a bit of attention to it doesn’t hurt anyone.

Good user experience is not just about design.

The whole experience is visual, colorful, easy to understand and, well, visually pleasing! From the first moment to the last, you’re guided through the whole plugin without having to guess which button does what and what the next step is.

We’re confident that the experience of using Thrive Quiz Builder is so good that you don’t even need to look up tutorials. But, in case you need them, you’ll find dozens of concise video tutorials right in the editor.

But who am I to judge? Compare these two quiz structures:

1. Regular WordPress dashboard with no visuals and all menu items look the same.

2. Colorful, visual items with illustrations and enough space to avoid overwhelm.

Or these social sharing result badges:

1.A simple rectangle with some text written in the same font size, font color, font style. No visuals, just plain text.

2. A badge with good background image resolution and endless possibilities for content.

I let you figure out which screenshot belongs to which plugin...

When Will You Start?

A lot has changed and improved between Viral Quiz Build and Thrive Quiz Builder. The new plugin is a new level of experience and after using it, you would never go back to Viral Quiz Builder.

But there is an important thing. You see, if we had waited until we can come up with the perfect product, you still wouldn’t have heard about us.

Our most important takeaway from this last few years of experience is this: 

Perfect doesn’t exist so you might as well start today.

Click to Tweet

Instead of getting stuck in the learning process and worrying about the start, the best thing you can do is to learn from your mistakes, and don't be afraid to get started with a phone that only has polyphonic ringtones.

What do you think? Have you had a similar experience? Would you launch a product before you feel like it’s just as good as it’s in your head?

We’d love to hear your thoughts and questions in the comments section.

  • Jason says:

    Is the quiz builder going to be offered as part of Thrive membership or only as a stand alone purchase?

    • Hanne says:

      Hi Jason,
      If you’re a member you already have access to the plugin! Check out your members area :)

      • Jason says:

        You guys ROCK! Just when you think you can’t make things any better… BAM! Another addition to the Thrive family.

      • David Foster says:

        I did not realize this, and I purchased it. Whoops.

  • Derek Seymour says:

    I remember asking for this to happen months ago so I’m thrilled that Thrive did just that!

    Above and beyond guys :D

    Now lets get Content Builder 2 rolled out!!! ;)

    • Alexandra Kozma says:

      Thanks Derek! Yes, that’s the plan! :)

  • Sarah A says:

    I loved the first quiz builder, and I love the new one. I can’t wait to be able to use it properly to build lists <3. I have a dozen quizzes mapped out already. Quizzes are clearly the new black ;)

    • Alexandra Kozma says:

      Hi Sarah, thanks for your comment! Let us know how it works out for you.

  • Rick Daniel says:

    I purchased Viral Quiz Builder – Developer License on April 26, 2012 and discovered it was “out of print” a few months ago while reviewing my pluggins list. The notice indicated the pluggin was being revamped and here it is!

    Now, for some reason I am not able to login to the members area using my login details. The message says: Could not connect: The server requested authentication method unknown to the client.

    How do I get to the new pluggin?


    • Alexandra Kozma says:

      Hi Rick! Unfortunately we’re experiencing a minor database error at the moment. But you should have received the offer by email (on the email you used to sign up for Viral Quiz Builder) If you can not find the message, please contact the support forum.

  • Ayomide A says:

    I saw the need to have quizzes on my website a few years ago, and a search online led me to a number of options with Viral Quiz Builder being my top pick and the one I ended up buying. This was before I even knew about Thrive Themes — so I definitely needed no persuasion to jump on the new one!

    I do have a small issue, though. The kind of quizzes I want to create are psychological test type quizzes, which tend to have the same options all through the questions (for example, “agree,” “disagree,” and “neutral,” that kind of thing). And with those kinds of tests, questions can often run as long as 20 or even 50.

    So my question is, can you make it possible for us to be able to duplicate the options across across questions, instead of having to write them out afresh each time?

    I hope you get what I’m asking and will consider this real soon, because it’s kind of held me back (I only created two quizzes, and I had up to 10 in mind). Thanks!

  • Erik H says:

    Hi Hanne! I’m curious: I’ve just built my very first list of 100 folks so far, and I was thinking I could use VQB to figure out “what” to give them next (i.e. are they having troubles building a site, if so Thrive, or coaching etc), but can I do this “without” doing the opt-in form step as these folks are already on the list?

    • Jesus Castello says:

      Yes, you can :)

      Thrive Quiz Builder gives you the option to have 4 sections for your Quiz: Welcome, Questions, Optin-gate, Thank you. (in this order)

      The Welcome & Optin-gate are optional. And you can put anything you want on the Thank you page.

      • Erik H says:

        Thanks Jesus!

      • Leslie says:

        If the results page is going to be completely unmodifiable, as it is for me, then it needs to be completely optional as well. The optin-gate needs to be a viable exit to the sequence with the email sequence going to where you want it to, such as a download freebie sequence. So simple to achieve if you put mind to it.

      • Shane Melaugh says:

        The results page is completely modifiable. You can put as much or little of any content you like as a result.

    • Alexandra Kozma says:

      Hi Erik!

      It’s absolutely optional to add an opt-in gate to the end of the quiz. If your goal with the quiz is not to grow your list, you can skip that step.

      • Erik H says:

        Thanks Alexandra!

  • Rob says:

    Great addition. This is why I am happy to keep giving you guys my money, ’cause you make good stuff, and constantly work to make it all better. Nice one. And interestingly enough, I actually used the thrive themes opt-in builder (can’t remember the specific name right now, but the one that offers various answers) to build my own path – a quiz of sorts – leading to a specific opt-in with follow-up recommendations based on a person’s answers. Works like a charm actually. Check it out here if you want…

    • Alexandra Kozma says:

      Hey Robert! Thanks for sharing your website with us :) Great use of the Multi state feature in Thrive Leads! We’re happy to hear it works out well for you.

  • Tripp M says:

    This is very cool.. I think thrive themes is one of the best solutions for building on online presence out there…Great job.. BTW, still looking for that FULL WIDTH VIDEO background.

    • Alexandra Kozma says:

      Thanks Tripp! Our team is working on adding more and more to our plugins every day :)

  • Lian A says:

    Hi hanne,
    Awe this is so awesome – I’ve been waiting for this :-)
    I have had the Viral Quiz Builder for a long time, but it stopped working with wordpess upgrades.
    * I did not receive any e-mails with ” Alittle treat for our loyal customers!” As you have indicated, when should I expect it? Will it be an e-mail or a message on my Thrive Themes member account?
    Thanks so much for all your amazing stuff, hard work and services – it just keeps getting better and better and better!!! :-)

    • Alexandra Kozma says:

      Thanks Lian :)

      We sent the email directly to your inbox – is it possible that you used a different email address back in the day you puchased Viral Quiz Builder or that the email is in your spam folder?

      • Lian A says:

        Hi Alexandra,

        It’s the same e-mail I’m using now and I checked my spam folder too. There was nothing from Thrive themes.
        Is it possible to re-send me that e-mail?


      • Hanne says:

        Hi Lian,

        I can see you’re a Thrive Themes member, that means you have access to the plugin already!
        Simply login to your members dashboard to download it

  • Lisa R says:

    Will wp sharely undergo a similar metamorphosis? I looked at its functionality last year, but didn’t buy it, and now that I have a need for it, it is no longer available!

    • Alexandra Kozma says:

      Hi Lisa,

      Yes, we’re working on a new and better version of WP Sharely, too! Unfortunately I can’t give you an ETA on that yet, though.

  • Steve W says:

    love the text! and the plugin of course ;)

    • Alexandra Kozma says:

      Thanks Steve :)

  • Mike C says:

    As a member, I jumped into Quiz Builder quickly and it IS as good as you say. I love it and I now need to see if my audience loves my quiz!

    So… my request for a blog would be good practices for promotional copy to get people keen on doing the quiz.

    • Alexandra Kozma says:

      Hey Mike, thanks for your comment! We’re happy the plugin works out for you.

      Thanks for the idea, I’ll log your request.

  • Nick Liberati says:

    in my opinion, in line with your analogy, Thrive’s survey product went from a Nokia brick phone to a flip phone; however it’s not yet an iPhone or Samsung smart phone. Not being able to tag folks in my CRM (Active Campaign) based upon how they answer questions, significantly reduces the utility that this tool will have for me. Maybe I’m in the minority? Thank you for putting the work in to make it better, I hope to see further improvements that will make it something I want to use.

    • Hanne says:

      Hi Nick,

      Have you looked into the dynamic content possibilities?
      This allows you to show different content depending on the different results your visitor gets.
      So lets say you have a categories quiz to determine if somebody is “beginner”, “intermediate” or “advanced”. When finished answering the quiz you can either:
      1. Show them an opt-in gate with dynamic content so based on the results you can show a different opt-in form with different tags applied.
      2. Show them a results page with an optional opt-in form again based on their results so that you can tag them.

      Is this what you’re looking to accomplish or did you have something else in mind?

      • kate d says:

        Hey Hanne,
        I tried doing that myself. Adding a dynamic content box then embedding the custom HTLM for an embed form from active campaign form. It crashes the plugin every time.

        Any other ideas?
        I purchased this plug because you claimed in your VSL it can segment, clearly. it can’t.

  • Sasha Pustam says:

    I’m happy to see this development! I have had some problems with the support for Viral Quiz Builder and sadly, haven’t been able to use it as much as I’d have liked. Maybe I missed something? It was good at the time though.

    • Alexandra Kozma says:

      Hello Sasha,

      Thanks for your comment! If you purchased Viral Quiz Builder back in the day, please check your inbox – we sent a special offer to you! Ever since VQB, we significantly improved the quality of the support we provide, too.

  • Henrik G says:

    I am confused. Quizes seams to me as being something from yesterday’s marketing social share toolbox.

    I can’t see the value in taking a quiz. I do not find them funny and a badge is really not worth anything for me as the user.

    If I sign up for a free eBook I get value, but completing a star wars quiz and get signed up in the process, is that really a conversion you would want?

    Thrive themes have created great plugins all about bringing value to the users in return for a conversion.

    Don’t get me wrong, I am not being pessimistic about this, I simply don’t get the value, and to me it simply reminds me of a get rich quick marketing scam to have a quiz on your website.

    Please show me an example quiz on that gives me as a thrivethemes user value, a quiz suitable for your (thrivethemes) target audience.

    Kind regards


    • Alexandra Kozma says:

      Hello Henrik,

      I recommend watching ‘our introductory video here where we explain in greater detail why quizzer are so effective to get more targeter leads and boost sales.

  • Leo says:

    Every blog post of mine has a quiz or poll. Your quiz builder can create more sophisticated quizzes. I’m going to purchase it in the morning. By the way, my bounce rates are close to zero.

    • Alexandra Kozma says:

      Hello Leo,
      Thanks for your comment, we’re happy to hear this!

  • Nick Meissner says:

    I’ve tried it out your Quiz Builder and it’s a great idea except that there is no capability for tagging in ActiveCampaign/Infusionsoft/etc) based on the contact’s answers. That is a fatal flaw that makes this all but unusable for many many of us. Add that functionality and you’ll have a real winner like Thrive Leads.

    • Hanne says:

      Hi Nick,

      I think we’ve got you covered…
      Have you looked into the dynamic content possibilities?

      This allows you to show different content depending on the different results your visitor gets.

      So lets say you have a categories quiz to determine if somebody is “beginner”, “intermediate” or “advanced”. When finished answering the quiz you can either:
      1. Show them an opt-in gate with dynamic content so based on the results you can show a different opt-in form with different tags applied.
      2. Show them a results page with an optional opt-in form again based on their results so that you can tag them.

      This will allow you to segment your list based on the quiz results which is I’m guessing what you’re looking for. Or did you have something else in mind?

      • Nick Meissner says:

        Hi Hanne,

        Thanks for your reply. I did play around with the dynamic content, but only allows for different signups forms based on the ending page, correct?

        What I and many of us are looking for is something that can tag based on each of the visitors answers, so that we can get a good idea of each of the categories they are interested in. Is there any way to do that?

        Also, is there a way to use your API integration with ActiveCampaign to insert a signup form and tag right from the Quiz Builder, or do we have to manually generate an HTML form in AC for each and every “Answers” page and insert is there?

        Thanks for following up on this with me.

      • Hanne says:

        Hi Nick,
        Thanks for explaining.
        I can see how this can be useful (and I can see how this could be a huge mess of tags also ;-) ) So we’ll need to look into that to make sure not to create a time bomb.
        And as for your question, yes you can simply insert through API (no need to copy paste HTML :) )
        If you need instructions, you can find them here

      • Steve D says:

        Hi Hanne – I’m with Nick on this one. Your quiz builder looks fantastic and I would really like to use it, but without being able to record tags for every possible answer (multiple choice & radio buttons) then this is unusable for me too.

        Additionally, I would need it to record freeform (text/paragraph) answers in the note field of the corresponding AC contact record.

        Having the ability to tag the final result doesn’t give me the segmentation power I need.

      • Hanne says:

        Hi Steve,

        Can you give an example of the “record freeform answers”?
        Just to be clear, the quiz builder is made for quizzes, it is not a survey tool to ask open ended questions to people :)

      • Nick Liberati says:

        Thank you for the reply, Hanne. I did watch that video. It allows me to tag folks at the end, as you describe. However, I want to tag them based upon the answer to each question.

        from your example above, if someone answers the quiz and ends up at the end being tagged “intermediate”, that’s good to know, but I also want to know how they answered each question that in turn would categorize them as “intermediate”.

        I figure this could be done by having different branches of the quiz based upon each answer, but that becomes a cumbersome build-out. there’s gotta be a way to make it easier on us who want to do this.

      • Hanne says:

        Hi Nick,
        Yes so indeed for now the only way would be with branches, but I can see how that would quickly become complicated (depending on the number of possible answers/questions)

  • Ed F says:

    I was an owner of the old tool but didn’t get an email. I am curious now what the offer was. Anyway I can get that?

  • Congrats on your new plugin. I looked at many quiz plugins recently and this one just blows them all out of the water. Well done.

    • Alexandra Kozma says:

      Thanks Carl, we’re glad to hear this :)

  • Michael D says:

    Segmentation With Quiz Builder

    Shane, I am on my 5th quiz builder plugin as you are releasing this. Thank you!

    Very soon I will be able to keep all of my page building functions in ThriveThemes.

    Question: Do you have plans to be able to assign autoresponder platform tags based on answers to questions?

    Several of the plugin solutions out there offer this.

    Right now, I’m able to use a single form to pass this kind of info:

    Over 40
    Into Square-dancing
    Lower back pain

    All with a single optin form.

    But I would love to retire what I’m using now for Thrive Quiz Builder, because your support is stellar and your products are all so robust.

    • Alexandra Kozma says:

      Hi Michael,

      If I understand correctly you would like to have every answer parsed on to the email provider?

      For the moment you could make this, depending on how you branch your quiz. But it’s not automatic. You would have to add the tags to the opt-in form depending on the branch.

      Could you share what solution you’re using currently so that we can have a look?


  • Nic says:

    Here’s the crazy thing. I bought viral quiz builder years ago and had no idea you guys were the developers. It clashed with other plugins I had and so I had to stop using it. And now, hey presto, I’ve got the reincarnation and it’s awesome.

    The other thing is that I specialise in using quizzes and surveys to segment my list in order to customise sales messages. I was just recently looking at a similar piece of software that costs a few thousand bucks a year … and yet hey presto, Thrive Quiz Builder shows up and blows me away.

    All I can say is that you guys impress me yet again. My entire system is built on your platform and I am grateful.

    • Alexandra Kozma says:

      Thanks for your commend Nic, we’re glad to hear that you’re happy with the service :)

  • Jon CP says:

    +1 for being able to add AC tags to questions. Big difference between, “what is your profession”.. doctor, retail worker, coal miner, etc. If that was taggable, I would have the data I want just from one question (while the person is still getting converted on the quiz part). Is there a way to do this with thrive leads maybe? If so, link please.

  • Pooja says:

    I’m going to purchase it!! Loved it

    • Alexandra Kozma says:

      Thanks Pooja, we hope you’re going to love the new plugin, too :)

  • Gerald S says:

    Looks cool. I also did check a video on youtube and this gave me an aidea.
    Maybe I could use this for a pre-qualifying scenario to filter my prospects, by making several questions and lead them to different answers right ?

  • Nikki says:

    I know that there is video of example quizzes on the sales page, but are there any actual demos that we can take a look at? AKA example quizzes we can click through to see how it works as an end-user?

  • Niya says:

    This looks amazing! I’d love to see a course in Thrive University on how to utilize the power of quizzes in lead segmentation…just a thought!

  • melodie says:

    Thrilled about this! I am viral builder customer and thrive member, can’t wait to give this a test drive.

    Timelines on a/b testing ?

    • Hanne says:

      Hi Melodie,

      A/B testing of the results page, splash page and opt-in gate is already available in Thrive Quiz Builder.

  • Jaime R says:


    I was very excited when I read that there was a gift from the customers, but in my inbox there is only the sales email …

    What is the gift?

  • Tudor M says:

    I’ve bought it but I’m pretty dissapointed. This product doesn’t go up to the thrivethemes standards, design and usabillity. We have just one type of question (with buttons or images)… very dissapointing.

    Look at Wp-Pro-Quiz which offers a lots of options and is free. I bough ThriveQuizzes for speed and simplicity, but it is too simple, and the design quite ugly and old looking.

    I can change the design… but this raises a question “what happened? going from premium to low quality products….”

    I’ve hoped from something a lot better!

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      I honestly can’t tell whether you’re joking or not. You can’t seriously be suggesting that Wp pro quiz compares favorably to Thrive Quiz Builder regarding design and user interface…

      Thrive Quiz Builder is made for marketing, whereas the other plugin seems to be made for evaluations/tests in a teaching context. If that’s the context you want to use quizzes for, then I don’t recommend TQB for you. But claiming that this product is not up to our standards? Come on, man.

  • Tudor M says:

    I’m sorry if the comparation is not quite exactly,but the main points remain. I’ve bought it because I believed in thrive theme quality, attention at details, design and all other stuff that makes you great. This plugin doesn’t seem to fit in the picture. Maybe I had to higher expectation… Maybe you will come with feature updates that will make it great. I’m sorry for this expectation but this is thrive themes for me… Really great marketing plugins, with great design and attention to details… This plugin still needs to evolve (how other users already said that).

    Let me reformulate. I don’t say it’s not OK, it’s good, it’s fine it’s nice, BUT this is not what I’ve expected from thrive themes. I’ve expected something much better ( design, options, segmentation, features). You’ve raised the expectations with all the great products with great design… Now look at this product and let’s be honest… Is this your design, your usability ? Just compare the tqb badges with thrive themes, leads, templates etc… They are ugly.Your default templates are stunning, beautiful, have impact… this TQB has a 90s design. Anyway just my feedback. I will use it, and hope to see some engaged users and results…

  • David Foster says:

    Do you have plans to add a blank field where people can type in an answer? We have a quiz that does very well, and want to build it on your platform, however the place where we get the most info from our clients is in the final question where they have to type in a response. I sure hope this is coming :)

    • Hanne says:

      Hi David,

      No this is not on the development timeline.

  • Nick says:

    I’m also hoping for an open-ended text box.

    Open-ended responses inform possible segmentation for later multiple choice answers. Without these, it’s a complete shot in the dark.

    That makes blank fields for typed responses make-or-break for me.

    I love math, segmentation & logic – and I already get these and more with eForm.

    But I love the ease-of-use you provide in your other products.

    If you could collect open ended responses (which seems like an easy programming assignment for your developers), I’d buy it in an instant.

      Hi Nick,

      As this is a quiz builder tool and not a survey tool, we will not add the open ended question option into the plugin.

      Thrive Quiz Builder is specifically made to create engaging quizzes for lead generation, increase social shares,… on your website.

      You can use other tools to conduct surveys.

    Does the Thrive Quiz Builder plugin only work with the Thrive theme or will it work with other WordPress themes?

    • Hanne says:

      Hi Julie,
      It will work with any WordPress theme.

  • Joe B says:

    Hello – when will you be able to cusomize the results page – I know you can have a result but you need to be able to have a custom picture and text for each result explaining.

    • Hanne says:

      Hi Joe,
      You are already able to do that! With the dynamic content in the results pages, you can create a complete personalized results page depending on the results someone gets in the quiz. You can find out more about it here.

    • Leslie says:

      YES. THANK YOU. You also need to be able to not display any result at all. Trying to customize the results page in any way at all gives a time stamped blank page that can’t be reverted.

    Hi guys, I just wanted to say how awesome the quiz builder is. I added a one question quiz to my webinar sign up thank you page. I didn’t think anyone would answer – I have had 90 registrations and 86 people answered the question. I now have a breakdown of exactly what step people are at and now can tailor the sales message on the webinar. So freaking exciting!

    • Hanne says:

      Great to hear Melanie! That’s a very smart way to use Thrive Quiz Builder :)

  • Angela says:

    can I use Quiz Builder for surveys, too?

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hello Angela,

      Thrive Quiz Builder is not a survey tool. We created TQB specifically to create highly engaging quizzes that lead to a conversion goal. If you want to increase engagement, get more social shares, get more leads or increase an other conversion goal on your site TQB is a great tool. If you want to run a survey, I recommend using one of the many free surveying tools and services that are available elsewhere.

      • Leslie says:

        Your audience is speaking to you. Listen. You are losing me as a client on multiple fronts due to this recurrent problem. People have different needs for their businesses. Particularly people with service businesses need a little more flexibility in how they do things. Would it be that hard to listen?

      • Shane Melaugh says:

        Your comment implies that building a survey tool (and giving it to existing users for free, no doubt) is nothing other than a decision. And that we refuse to simply say “yes” to this suggestion and make it happen.

        The reality is that developing features costs time and money, both of which are limited. We can build a survey feature in Thrive Quiz Builder, but only at the expense of other things. Building this means we WON’T build something else.

        We listen very carefully to our customers. As a result, we have a clear idea of priorities and features we can build to serve the greatest number of our customers in the best way. Surveys in TQB is nowhere near the top of that list.

  • Cordula says:

    can I connectthe quizbuilder directly to mailchimp, building segments there? Or do I need other plugins to connect to mailchimp?
    I want the people to make the quiz and leave their emailadress to get the results even by mail. Possible?
    Thnaks for your info.

    • Hanne says:

      You don’t need another plugin for that Cordula :) You can simply connect MailChimp and add quiz takers to the correct list or group in MailChimp when you connect MailChimp via API

  • Andres R says:

    Hello can I think of using this tool to sell a variety of quizzes?

    • Alexandra Kozma says:

      Hi Andres!

      Thanks for your comment! I’m not sure I fully understand your question, are you planning on selling paid quizzes made with Thrive Quiz Builder? Or you’d like to sell our plugin?

  • Eddy B says:

    Will have to try this out.

    • Alexandra Kozma says:

      Let us know if you have! :)

  • Mauricio S says:

    is it possible to set different actions depending on the results of the quiz? Ex. If scored 7 or more, building list activated (results sent by email) if scored less, result is shown in the screen, no email required.

    • Hanne says:

      Hi Mauricio,

      You can do this with the dynamic results pages.
      On the page that gets 7 or less, you can simply put the result on the page (or have a download button or something)
      On the results page for more than 7 you can put an opt-in form.
