10 Fun and Interesting Marketing Trivia Questions

Last week, I participated in Career Day at my daughter’s high school. (Yes, I’m that old. Well, I’m 44, which doesn’t feel that old, but some days I definitely feel like I’m 104.) Anyway, I realized I needed to do something cool to engage the students, so I created a marketing trivia game.


This was kind of an odd Career Day set up. Instead of giving a presentation to randomly assigned class, us participants were lined up in the cafeteria, and sophomores could stop by and chat with us.


Apparently, I became known as the Lollipop Lady, because whether or not you got the marketing trivia question correct, you got a lollipop. Some kids came back a few times. There are 600 sophomores in the school, so a lot of kids were walking around with lollipops in their mouths.


The kids had so much fun that I asked my team these questions during our weekly meeting. And my team had so much fun that now I’m sharing them with you. (Answers are at the end.)
