Well it’s been a few years since we last stuck our probe in the readers’ nether regions to take their temperature, so now would seem like a good time to get some feedback on what makes our beloved readership tick with the 2010 CMG Readers’ Survey.
It should take you no longer than 10 minutes to complete and your answers will give us vital information about our readership so that we can not only choose the best course for the editorial, but also help our ad department zero in on more funding thanks to being able to show off what great readers we have (fingers crossed).
As with everything CMG, when it comes to collecting personal information, at no time will any identifying information (like your
name, email or phone) go outside of CMG. We’re as hateful of spam and
other devious crap as you are (maybe even more so).
This year we’re also launching a new project – the CMG Industry Focus group. What we aim to do is build up a volunteer pool of readers who will make themselves available to answer online questionnaires posed by various motorcycle related companies who want to know what the riding public (you) think of their product.
At the end of the CMG Readers’ Survey you will be asked whether you want to join said pool, and if you do – and if you are selected for a questionnaire – you will also be entered for a
random draw for a chance to win one of five $100 cash prizes!
Hey, if we’re earning some money from this, why not you too? Oh and same privacy of information applies to this pool too.
Okay, that’s enough preamble from me, to go to the survey, please click here – and thanks
in advance for your time, it’s much appreciated.
Good point Doug. I’ve gone in and added the option to add anything else that maybe on someone’s mind regarding CMG.
As for your issue with the fun factor element, I agree that we have erred somewhat away from that, but we do plan to reintroduce some of that element this year (starting with a two-parter on riding in Pakistan from Mr. Seck himself – well, as soon as he gets it finished and sent on to us!).
Ok, did the survey, good luck drumming up some more revenue with the stats.
What wasn’t in the survey was a general comment section so I’ll add it here. What killed my interest (and my subscription) to Cycle Canada was that they were too focused on new bikes, which don’t interest me at all. I’m more interested in the experience, and what can be done with bikes. I miss the lunacy and adventures of the CMG of a couple of years ago, and am still hoping that Costa can bring more of the sense of fun back. Again, good luck in these times…
