Reader survey ends Tuesday

The Post Independent online reader survey ends at midnight tomorrow.

“If you haven’t filled out the survey yet, please do so today or on Tuesday,” said Post Independent publisher Jenna Weatherred.

“We have had lots of feedback since launching the survey on March 8. We can tell people are passionate about their community newspapers,” Weatherred said.

To date, 488 Post Independent readers and 255 Aspen Times readers have completed the survey.

Anyone with an interest in either newspaper can take the survey. All those who complete the survey will be entered into a drawing to win a free Apple iPad.

The online survey takes 15-20 minutes to complete, and is hosted by an independent online survey company to ensure the results can be trusted.

“We have made some dramatic changes to the Post Independent over the past couple of years, and we want to make sure that those changes are working for our readers,” she said.

Those changes included combining advertising and some news content with the The Aspen Times to provide better reach for advertisers.

The survey asks readers and advertisers to rate their satisfaction level with the changes, and asks for feedback on other opportunities the paper is pursuing.

Survey questions also ask readers to rate their interests and provide feedback on what type of content the paper should be publishing, such as high school sports, shopping, crime, politics and environmental issues.
