Quizzes 
Quizzes are addictive little buckets of fun that can generate leads and social shares 
at pretty amazing rates. People like to compete to win recognition almost as much as 
they love to compete for more tangible prizes. Use early in the buyer’s journey.

Lookbook 
Lookbooks slice straight through the verbal clutter with powerful, attention-grabbing visuals. 
Early in the journey, they provide visually-driven products or concepts with an engaging, 
simple canvas. They can also result in strong social sharing and lead-gen performance. Use 
at all stages of the buyer’s journey
Interactive Infographic 
Interactive infographics turn facts and soundbites into engaging and entertaining fun. Using 
them early in the buyer’s journey generates social sharing. They are also highly measurable 
— revealing which factoids are most compelling for people. 
Use early & mid in the buyer’s journey.

Assessments 
When it’s time to truly engage in a useful dialog, it’s time to put assessments to 
work. They’re strategically designed to identify pains and opportunities while 
providing genuine value and recommendations to buyers. Assessments are great 
for engagement for early stage buyers and for education of a middle stage buyer.

Calculators 
When you want to illustrate potential quantifiable outcomes, calculators are the go-to 
marketing app. They can provide compelling, hard evidence that builds credible 
need in the critical nurture period between attention and action.

understand conceptually what they need. This makes solution builders invaluable in

Configurators 
Configurators are a specific version of solution builders — enabling buyers to match 
their needs to your product, service or solution. This provides immediate feedback to 
marketing and sales to qualify and surface the most qualified prospects. Use late in

eBooks 
Great for longer format content. It’s especially effective as a 'create your own story' 
version where the behavioral feedback loop to sales and marketing illuminates 
pains, opportunities and qualification.
Interactive White Papers 
The ‘snackable’ version of eBooks, can provide snippets of expandable content allowing 
the visitor to determine how deep they want to go. Highly visual, typically including 
several engaging elements including content quizzes, very effective at allowing visitors to 
step through your story. Can surface great behavioral insights to sales.
