“Where's Your Marketing Message” Quiz

Wondering if your marketing message is dancing in the spotlight or is busy cowering by the punch table? Take this quiz and find out.

1. Overall, you would describe your marketing as:

  1. A. Going strong. You consistently get lots of good leads and sales from your marketing efforts.

  3. Flat. Your sales are neither growing nor shrinking.
  4. Don't ask.
  5. You don't do much marketing. Or any marketing for that matter. Customers pretty much find you.

  1. A huge success. It exceeded your expectations.
  2. No complaints. You're pleased with your results.
  3. Not sure. You didn't notice much change with your sales.
  4. A waste of good money.
  5. You can't remember your last campaign. In fact, you don't think you've ever had one.

3. At a Chamber of Commerce meeting, you bump into a woman who you feel would be your ideal customer. Her response after you introduce yourself is:

  1. "I'm so glad I ran into you. I've been meaning to talk to you in more detail about how your business can help me out."
  2. "Oh, I think I remember hearing about you. Tell me more about what you do."

  1. "Oh, that's interesting." And changes the subject.
  2. "Yes, I think I've heard about your business." And changes the subject.
  3. "Yes, I think I saw one of your ads in the paper last week." And changes the subject.
  4. "Oh course. I've been seeing your ads all over the place." And changes the subject.
  5. Changes the subject.

  1. Describes your business perfectly.
  2. Gets it mostly right.
