Survey to gauge Pulse of community

Black Press has partnered with Pulse Research to survey residents of the region.

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

Reader answers will help gauge 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 three, $1,000 cash prizes to be given away across the Black Press BC South region.

Readers who submit the survey before Jan. 31 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 part of this invaluable survey that looks at our readers shopping plans for the upcoming year,” said Black Press BC South president Bruce McAuliffe. “I am confident that gathering this information, will no doubt benefit both our readers and local businesses in all of our communities.”

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.

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.
