How can we better serve readers? | Our Opinion | Feb. 11

In today’s Bainbridge Island Review, we’re asking you, our readers, to tell us what you want from your hometown newspaper.

And more. The survey will help us shape our product, and understand how our community does business as we partner with local merchants and other advertisers to foster a strong local economy.

Share your views with us, and you will be entered for a $1,000 cash drawing and a $500 gift certificate for Fred Meyer.

“It’s especially important for us to understand our readers’ needs and expectations of us during these difficult economic times,” said Review Publicher Chris Allen Hoch. “The survey information will also help us learn more about our market.”

Partnering with us in our market research is Pulse Research of Portland, Ore., an independent firm that works with media and retailers nationwide.

The survey is on our website at bainbridgereview.com, and will provide valuable feedback to the Bainbridge Island Review staff, including: What do you enjoy about your newspaper? What would you like to see changed? How can we better serve the community?

It will also help Bainbridge Island’s merchants to better market their goods and services.

Questions may include: reader preferences for local news and other media; consumer preferences for local and regional shopping; household purchasing plans for goods and services; your family choices for entertainment and travel; and basic household demographic information.

We ask you to log on to our website to take the survey. All responses will be kept confidential.

“Our staff considers it a privilege to serve a community such as Bainbridge Island,” said Hoch. “Learning what you expect of us and then responding in a positive, productive manner is part of our pact with the community.”
