Take Our Reader Survey for a Chance to Win a $250 Amazon Gift Card

Posted on December 11, 2019 by Paul Thurrott in Paul with 22 Comments

We’re now hosting our second annual reader survey and if you participate, you could win a $250 Amazon gift card.

This is similar to the survey we did last year, our first, and to the surveys you may have seen over on Petri.com, our sister site. And as you might expect, we’ve evolved it to address the changes that have occurred in the industry since last year and, frankly, to hit on some topics we missed the first time around.

You can find our second annual Thurrott.com Reader Survey here. It should take 10 to 15 minutes to complete, and it will be available through December 16. The $250 Amazon gift card winner will be contacted via email and announced here on December 31.

    Paul, can you post some aggregate results when the survey ends?

    The survey is not working for me, in Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Edge. It keeps claiming I have not answered questions 6 and 10, when I did pick the applicable number of choices for each.

    If I have no experience with a service, I'm not about to rank it.

    Like the survey, would find interesting a little poll maybe once a month a la "What do you think about Product/Company/Subject X"

    The Monkey coding this survey leads alot to be desired. On a Win7 / IE box the dropdown numerical values did not stick.

    One of the questions has a "Other, please specify" option but no box to actually write down your comments.

    FYI, Q19 has an option for "Other (please specify)" but does not have a text field to provide the additional information.

    So I actually filled this out and hit the NEXT button at the bottom of the form. That brought up a bright red "Please answer at least one question in this section" message for question six. Since I had actually provided 10 answers that rank-ordered things that were important to me, and since I could see them right there on the screen in front of me, I didn't understand what was missing. I hit NEXT again with the same result. And again. Then I just left-arrowed back here to report.

    My broad answer to the poll is, "Just keep on doing what you have been." Not everything interests me equally, but enough does that I am happy to continue as a premium subscriber.

    Please publish the survey results, thanks!

    The only thing missing from the survey was a box for other comments. I only have one...

    Sorry, Brad, but I gotta say I really hope you finish your basement project soon because I'm getting real tired of hearing so much about it on FRD.

    I answered every question, but when I hit submit, it goes back to the top to a message that says "Please choose one answer for this question." There's no question highlighted since I've answered every one of them. I guess I'll have to close the tab and not submit my answers.

    That 20-something choices ranking question was a hot mess on mobile

    I bailed, and usually bail most surveys when the questions get into your annual income and "are you the purchasing decision maker in your household" or your "influence in purchasing decisions in your workplace".

    From the survey monkey privacy policy:

    "The Creators who create and administer surveys, forms, applications, and questionnaires own and control your responses and contact information"

    Paul, what's your privacy policy regarding the demographic data you collect? Hopefully the cost of admission to entering the drawing is not to have your data sold to third parties.
