About the Content Strategy test

An exemplary content strategist increases customer engagement and sales by leveraging content to nurture every stage of the customer journey. Search-optimized content is a brand’s first impression with their target audience. Mid-funnel content keeps prospects engaged, building trust and encouraging conversion. At the bottom of the funnel, content can be a valuable tool to enable sales and increase customer retention.

This Content Strategy test evaluates candidates’ abilities to use content for conversion, to increase findability and distribution of content, and to measure and drive performance of content.

This screening test will help you identify content strategists who translate these skills into results you will see firsthand in your business. Candidates who do well on this screening test can approach content strategically to achieve business targets, resonate with the right audience, use search engine optimization (SEO) effectively, build on successes, and pivot after failed experiments.

This test is aimed at candidates with two to three years of experience in content strategy and who can easily strategize to grow qualified traffic that will convert.

Any tool can have functions—bells and whistles. Not every tool comes armed with staff passionate about making the user experience positive.

The TestGorilla team only offers useful insights to user challenges, they engage in conversation.

For instance, I recently asked a question about a Python test I intended to implement. Instead of receiving “oh, that test would work perfectly for your solution,” or, “at this time we’re thinking about implementing a solution that may or may not…” I received a direct and straightforward answer with additional thoughts to help shape the solution.

I hope that TestGorilla realizes the value proposition in their work is not only the platform but the type of support that’s provided.

For a bit of context—I am a diversity recruiter trying to create a platform that removes bias from the hiring process and encourages the discovery of new and unseen talent.
