Survey gauges pulse of B.C. north

Readers of Black Press B.C. North community newspapers reaching from Ashcroft to Prince Rupert will have a chance to win a cool $1,000.

Readers of Black Press B.C. North community newspapers reaching from Ashcroft to Prince Rupert will have a chance to win a cool $1,000 for completing an online survey that will help local businesses better understand customers in their community.

Black Press has partnered with respected research company Pulse Research to bring the Pulse of B.C. North survey to readers, which looks at the shopping plans and priorities of our readers and their media reading habits.

Reader answers will help guage the current consumer climate to help local businesses craft new and better ways to serve their clients and customers.

Responses will be kept confidential; reader contact information will only be gathered in order to enter the name into a prize draw for one of two, $1,000 cash prizes to be given away across the Black Press B.C. North region.  Readers who submit the survey before February 3rd will also have their name entered into the early bird draw with a chance to win one of 10 $50 grocery gift cards.

The online survey will take about 35 to 40 minutes, erasing the need for readers to spend long periods of time on the phone answering questions.

“We are very excited to be a part of this service to the business community,” says Black Press B.C. North president Lorie Williston.  “We are pleased to be able to offer this information and are certain it will be beneficial to both our readers and local businesses.”

The Pulse Research survey has already been successful for businesses.  In fact, one client took the results of the research to the bank and was able to secure a loan to expand their business, on the strength of the research.

Among the benefits of the study is allowing businesses to identify niche areas of their business, including showing potential areas for growth or expansion.

Pulse Research was founded in 1985 to provide publishing clients with research-based advertising sales and marketing programs designed to get results.  They are able to deliver insight to businesses who are currently faced with an ever-changing mix of products and services, including web, niche, special sections and deals.
