survey of deal sites for thesis paper

Reply Fri 2 May, 2014 11:26 am

I am about to wind up a paper and submit it next week.

I have devised an survey about the daily deals sites and people's buying habits - which is what i am researching for the paper - I have made many people take the questionnaire - people i know in person - now I thought I will try to throw in some anonymous feedback as well.

Would you please fill out the following survey - you are free also to share the survey with others and post it on your facebook etc. The more feedback the better.

Long time no read Brahmin. Took the survey. Is it for a marketing class?

my thesis is on "how deal of the day sites have disrupted the buying habits of Americans".

Thanks for taking the survey - please pass it along to as many people as you can - maybe facebook post it .

I'm in the middle of taking your survey now, and would like to offer feedback.

This is in the order of my encountering these items on your survey:

Question 1
I think you should add the option of "retired" for your occupation, Maybe also another one that indicates you are at home. I don't think "other" cuts it.
People may be particularly apt to look for deals when they've finished the career part of their life. Also, retired people may have money they would like to spend. People who are at home also are responsible for a lot of purchases, and look for deals.
Just lumping choices into "other" made me feel like a non-person, unproductive member of society. I'm not an "other"

Question 6
Most times when purchasing something, there's no option for bargaining. I can't go in a store and try to bargain a lower price for gas, a cartload of groceries, etc. I can bargain for a car, house and so forth. I really couldn't answer that question in a way that made sense. It certainly didn't rely on the idea that I was buying in bulk or was with a large group. I personally thought it was a strange question.
Would I bargain if I knew there was an opportunity to do so? Yes.

Question 10
Calling it a "referral scheme" makes it sound like something unsavory. Perhaps calling it a "referral program"?

Question ???
The question below is not numbered on the survey
What is your average budget ($) per outing (restuarant, movie, pub etc)?

IN ADDITION: The catagories for the question are too broad. Theres a big difference between having a budget of $10/person and $20/person. That's 100% increase!
How about the following catagories...
over $50/person
Once somone starts spending $30/person, you can start going up $10 a pop. Even then, there's a pretty big difference between $30 and $40.

Question 13
Why are you separating going out with friends or family? (btw, no need to say "family relatives", just "family" will do.
Is there some difference if I and 3 family members went to dinner, as opposed if I went with 3 co-workers, family or friends?
I went to dinner or a movie either alone or with others, I'd spend the same amount if I was with 2 friends, or 2 co-workers, or 2 family members.

Misc. - The "previous page" button doesn't work until you fill in all of the current page. You can't look at the previous page if you are only halfway through the current page.

Hope this helps! Very Happy

it sure helped - i shall keep these points in mind for future surveys. This one may have to stay this way for the sake of consistency. I will be researching this deal deals scene for years before my final phd thesis paper - so I shall have chances to incorporate your advice.

Please spread the link around - email it to someone you know or post on facebook etc.

Other a2k members - please take my anonymous survey - there are no personal questions - thanks a lot.

Hey everyone, please get on there and take the survey.

It only takes a couple of minutes.

There aren't any hooks involved, and it's totally anonymous.
