Hey Lumberjocks, here is an online survey for a group of Marketing Students at DePaul University.
I don’t know much about DePaul University, nor where the school is, but I do know that I don’t like them since they beat my Kansas State Wildcats in a BIG basketball tourney some years ago (NIT). I don’t now remember the details, but I do remember that I don’t like DePaul, nor Butler, Gonzaga, Marquette, Louisville, Wisconsin, Houston, UNLV, Syracuse, and a rather long list of other teams that have put my Wildcats out of a Big tourney (NCAA & NIT) over the years, sometimes more than once.
But, I decided to push down my internal feelings of despair to help the Marketing Students at DePaul.
The students are doing some sort of project and they created an online survey to get woodworker’s input on how to market tools to US. One of the students contacted me after reading my Blog here on Lumberjocks, asking me to participate in their survey, and to promote the surveys so they could get 100 respondents by their deadline. She was pleasant in her email and has a cute sounding name, so I decided to try out the survey. Magazine Publishers couldn’t get me to do it, but a nice sounding college girl could get me to take a survey on selling Power Tools to woodworkers.
What better place to get marketing information from real woodworkers, other than Lumberjocks? Nowhere I say, so I decided to post this in the Forum, in the hopes that we can find enough responders to help the students finish their project.
If you want to help them out, take the surveys before 2-19-2012.
Here are the links to the two surveys:
If it helps to motivate you to take the survey, they are giving a $100 gift to one random survey taker. I never win anything, but if you want to reduce my chances of winning the gift, you should participate. Now, see, that ought to motivate you…..keep Mark from winning something.
that’s it, thanks for reading, and for helping the students.
