Times conducting survey online

VALDOSTA — The Valdosta Daily Times has partnered with Pulse Research, an independent research company, in conducting a study on our behalf. This survey should take approximately 20 minutes to complete.

We are living in uncertain economic times and are hoping this research will provide insight into the economic climate of the communities we serve and enable us to strengthen the community bonds we share. The Times has an obligation to its readers and website users to be proactive within the communities we serve. This is not an obligation we take lightly. With a better understanding of your spending and purchasing plans, we will be able to show local businesses that the Times readers are in the market for the products and services they offer and regardless of the economy, there is a demand.

This poses an opportunity for local businesses as well as our readers and visitors. In showing local businesses that they need to advertise so our readers can bring shopping dollars their way, our local economy will be strengthened. The more local ads we run, the more local dollars stay in our communities. We are in the unique position of being able to positively affect our readers, local businesses and ourselves, but we cannot do it without you.

The survey can be found on our website, www.valdostadailytimes.com. Your information will be kept confidential and used for this survey’s purpose only. You will not receive any solicitations as a result of completing this survey.

However, as a thank you for taking the time to complete the survey, you will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win one of the following prizes: one $500 Visa card; five $100 Visa cards; five $25 certificates at Smok’n Pig; and five $25 certificates at Mama June’s.
