Over the past couple of weeks we've been asking our members and newsletter readers to give us some feedback as to what they currently use on the site, what they think of it and what they want from it going forward.
With well over 2,000 responses the feedback has been truly amazing.
This sort of feedback and response will drive forward our development campaign as we head into 2011.
Therefore, THANK YOU to everyone who took the time to complete the survey. We really do appreciate everyone's input.
As promised we have selected three people to win a copy of the "Bitten by Spain" book. These are:
- Arlene Gemmell
- William Naylor
- John Adlam
Well done to you three, we'll be in touch with you today regarding your prizes.
Now, we'd like to share with you some of the findings from the survey, just in case you're interested .
Of all of the respondents.....
87% are in the 46+ age group, with the highest group being the 56 - 65 at 42%.
48% already own a property in Spain, with 23% already living in Spain.
12% are looking to move to Spain.
52% prefer a weekly newsletter instead of bi-weekly or monthly.
Main topics of interest are "Spanish property market", "Life and culture in Spain", "Latest news" and "Legal information".
Most desired new facilities for EOS are "Ask the experts", "Events in Spain", "Offers and vouchers" and "Meet-up faciilty".
The biggest furstrations with the site are "Too many ads", "Loads too slowly" and "The forums are lacking too many features".
27% would like to have the option to pay an annual subscription to remove the ads and receive other benefits.
Although we never explicitly asked it in the survey, an astonishing amount of people stated that they really miss The Siesta Show videos. We were quite surprised by this....so maybe watch this space.
In the comments in the survey many people have asked us questions and left messages for us. Over the next few days I WILL be responding to everyone who asked us a question in the survey. It's only fair I return the favour.
I hope you found this data interesting.
As always, your comments are welcome and you can leave them below.
Thanks again to you all!
