    I invite you to take a few seconds and answer a short 5 question survey that I created

    This survey will help me and you better understand the way people find business, whether it be online, in newspapers, from referrals or advertisements.

    My goal is to Reach 50 Responses!

    https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/5MW3723

    Once the goal is completed, the results will be published here

    Clearly the best way to find businesses is to search for them online.

    I would definitely agree however, when I shared this through Facebook and LinkedIN the older generation had very different answers.

    Searching online so far has been the most popular but barely compared to asking a friend for a referral

    At 33 Responses! Just need 17 more to reach the goal and will post a screen shot of the results.


    Feel free to use the results to show potential clients where people go to find small businesses.

    There you go. I bet you 99% of the people from here will choose the answer "online" for most. We all basically live online lol.

    Yep, the results of your survey will be biased and skewed. It's like going to the gym and asking the people you see there... "do you ever work out"?

    I think you should try your survey on yahoo answers. The yahoo answers community is alot more diverse.

    Great idea MrCreeper, I will post it on the Yahoo answers community as well!

    The answers might be skewed for asking on an internet marketing forum but if that is truly what you guys would do then I think its a legit answer. Why would your opinion not matter?

    I'm a member of several facebook groups and people always ask the group
    before going to the search engines when looking for a business to use.
