ClassicRead's Digital Outreach
Digital Marketing
Content Monetization
Value Proposition
Solve
Despite recently modernizing their website for e-commerce, ClassicRead Publishers, esteemed for their classic literature, struggle to resonate with the younger audience. The following insights have been noted:

1. Customer Segmentation Data: While 60% of their audience is aged 40 and above, there's an untapped 30% aged 20-35, consuming content mainly digitally.
2. Market Analysis: E-books and audiobooks, especially via subscription models like Audible, are on the rise.
3. Brand USP: ClassicRead’s editions shine with scholarly annotations, an edge not offered by generic free versions or mainstream platforms like Audible.
4. Digital Presence: Their modern website, though enriched, isn't pulling in the younger crowd. Their social media traction is also modest.
5. ROI Concerns: Further digital endeavors must promise solid ROI, considering the fierce digital content competition.

Desiring to magnetize younger readers and maximize their annotation USP, which strategy should ClassicRead champion next?
A: Introduce a referral program on their website for annotated e-books, incentivizing youth to share and purchase.
B: Join forces with leading e-book platforms, but make annotated versions solely available through a ClassicRead app, which is actively promoted on platforms popular among the youth.
C: Design a ClassicRead app that offers e-books and audiobooks with a feature highlighting and sharing favorite annotations, backed by partnerships with popular online book clubs.
D: Organize periodic online webinars with literature enthusiasts analyzing book annotations, with exclusive e-book offers for attendees.
E: Develop virtual reality experiences of classic literature settings, where annotations are discussed in an immersive environment.
F: Collaborate with schools and universities to integrate ClassicRead's annotated e-books into the curriculum, thereby targeting the youth directly.

Customer Segmentation
Solve
ShopElite Fashions has recently expanded its e-commerce platform, while still operating its flagship physical stores. The brand is eager to unify customer experiences across channels. Here are the current challenges and insights:

1. Channel Preferences: The brand's physical stores are popular for the older clientele due to tactile buying experiences and personal customer service. In contrast, younger customers lean heavily on e-commerce due to its convenience.
2. Purchase Behavior: The in-store shopping experience leads to infrequent, but high-ticket purchases. E-commerce witnesses frequent but lower-ticket transactions.
3. Feedback: Both segments feel the rewards and incentives are skewed towards the other group.
4. Communication Channels: Email campaigns have a high open rate among older clientele, whereas younger customers engage more with the brand on social media.
5. Cross-channel engagement: Only 10% of customers have shopped on both channels.

In light of the above, as ShopElite's CMO, which of the following would be MOST important part of a strategy to harmonize the omni-channel experience?
A: Introduce in-store tech experiences, such as augmented reality mirrors, targeting younger clientele to give them a taste of both online and offline world.
B: Diversify communication channels
C: Roll out a tiered loyalty program, where points can be accrued from both online and offline purchases, and benefits increase with cross-channel shopping behaviors, encouraging integration.
D: Launch a series of promotional campaigns, offering heavy discounts online to attract the older clientele and in-store events for the younger audience.
E: Rebalance the product offerings, focusing on exclusive online-only and in-store-only ranges to compel customers to engage with both channels.

Have questions about the Digital Marketing Hiring Test?

How does pricing work?

You can check out our pricing plans.

Can I customize the test?

Yes, absolutely. Custom assessments are set up within 48 hours based on your job description, and will include questions on all must-have skills you specify. Here's a quick guide on how you can request a custom test. You can also customize a test by uploading your own questions.

Can I combine multiple skills into one test?

Yes, absolutely. Custom assessments are set up based on your job description, and will include questions on all must-have skills you specify. Here's a quick guide on how you can request a custom test.

What roles can I use the Digital Marketing Assessment Test for?

Here are few roles for which we recommend this test:

  • Digital Marketing Specialist
  • Content Marketer
  • SEO Specialist
  • Social Media Manager
  • Email Marketing Specialist
  • Digital Marketing Analyst
  • E-commerce Manager
  • Digital Advertising Specialist
  • Marketing Manager
  • Marketing Coordinator
  • Facebook Marketing Specialist
Can I see a sample test, or do you have a free trial?

Yes!

The free trial includes one sample technical test (Java/ JavaScript) and one sample aptitude test that you will find in your dashboard when you sign up. You can use it to review the quality of questions and the candidate experience of giving a test on Adaface.

You can preview any of the 500+ tests and see the sample questions to decide if it would be a good fit for your requirements.

How do I interpret test scores?

The primary thing to keep in mind is that an assessment is an elimination tool, not a selection tool. A skills assessment is optimized to help you eliminate candidates who are not technically qualified for the role, it is not optimized to help you find the best candidate for the role. So the ideal way to use an assessment is to decide a threshold score (typically 55%, we help you benchmark) and invite all candidates who score above the threshold for the next rounds of interview.

I'm a candidate. Can I try a practice test?

No. Unfortunately, we do not support practice tests at the moment. However, you can use our sample questions for practice.
