Our Survey Says!

Rob-Portrait351Last eZine, we attempted our first-ever online survey. I can report back that it was an overall success … both technically (the silly thing actually allowed you to enter your answers and tabulated your responses), and from the point of view of getting some great feedback. Literally thousands of you answered the questions, and I was able to put all of your answers in perspective.

Even more of you would have liked to participate, but we did have a few technical challenges. (We’re working on them.) With that in mind, I have to say, all in all, it worked amazingly well. A couple of readers had a question that I want to be sure to address: they were concerned that, by participating in the survey, they were giving their e-mail address to another company. This is absolutely not the case. Our policy forbids us from sharing your e-mail address with anyone else.

Several more of you have already e-mailed me and suggested topics for future surveys and, as you might expect, I’ve got a few ideas as well. Look for our next online survey in two weeks. I really am looking forward to this new ultra interactive phase of the Zine.

Let’s keep the conversation going!
