Market research?

Postby Howie » Sat Jan 22, 2011 5:14 pm

Please don't take any offence but this seems a bit formal to me ie. relating to an established procedure or set of questions.
It generally feels and looks like market research and could put people off answering.
I'm not sure it should be on the forum, how can you get any idea of why people returned and their feelings about it by responding to a set of 1 - 5 answers
Actually having looked back at it again it seems bogus, If it isn't I appologise and only hope you can glean some information from my response.

In response to this comment, I am in fact a student from the University of Wolverhampton studying Spanish and Tourism Management. I am doing a dissertation about why people choose to revisit Butlins and decided to post the questionnaire on here as it seems there are many people on this site who love Butlins and I have actually got answers to my questionnaire from another Butlins memories forums and also from the Butlins fan page on Facebook. It is the next best thing asking people over the internet to fill out a questionnaire because I can not get to Butlins myself and ask people the questions. Instead of posting complaints, it wouldv'e been nice to get a set of answers that actually helped me out with my research.

If it is bogus and market research here is not the place to get an unbiased set of results.

From past experience on this and my time with BM these requests get mainly ignored, as the people requesting information take more than they give to the forum.

I am going to Close this Thread. If you wish to respond please do so by email.
