A Marketing Quiz

A Marketing Quiz

Starting the week off with a marketing quiz to get the juices flowing!

How many of you are told that you are lucky to be working at home and how much freedom you have?

Personally when I have been told that, I laugh a lot as the reality is that a lot of work goes into making any kind of living with “internet marketing” or having a home business.

While you may not have to go to the office everyday, without adhering to a fixed schedule and having a good work ethic, I feel it safe to say that you will not have much success.

While there are always going to be those people who are totally focused on making money and then more money, the reality is that internet marketing of any kind means focusing on building a business, learning and applying marketing tactics( getting an education), building relationships and it is going to  take time and effort.

While many of you who are reading this are experienced in marketing .. internet marketing, there will be those of you who are new to this world of business.

Now a days marketing covers many topics from email marketing to social media marketing and everything in between.

I thought it would be fun to create a marketing quiz, that I hope will be fun and  give you some ideas on what you need to think about if you are going to seriously consider working online with affiliate marketing, online business etc.

    • Good morning Chuck.

      Thanks for the feedback and yes you are right about this kind of plugin, Unfortunately I didn’t have access to that kind of plugin at the time I did the post.
      Just so you know there are also sites that will help create quizzes and I had thought of using that means, but confess that it was fairly late when I did this post ( which meant thinking and wording questions etc.) that I was tired.
      When I get the time lol, I may still do this and “edit” this post.
      Knowing your skills and experience I am pretty sure that you got all the questions “right”, but I am wondering, which question might have made you think?
