Readers, take our Pulse survey

Readers, help us take the Pulse of your community.

Business is the beating heart of any town, and a new online survey bringing consumers and businesses together is a win-win situation for everybody.

The Pulse Research Online Survey gives businesses an overview of the general public’s shopping habits and purchasing plans for the next 12 months. That helps businesses develop and implement strategies that suit their customers — that suit you! — who have offered their opinions through the survey.

And by taking 20 minutes to complete the survey, you could be eligible to win some serious cash.

Businesses get a clear view of consumer habits in their region, and survey participants will be entered to win one of two $1,000 regional prizes.

So get on online, and head to The survey takes about 20 minutes to complete — dozens of questions covering all aspects of the local business environment, and how you plan to engage with it as consumers. Individual responses are aggregated with hundreds of others, so all answers are completely confidential. Participants must be 18 years old, and a local resident (resident of your region) to participate.

Pulse Research is an independent firm. The contest is sponsored by Black Press newspaper group.
