This week we ran our first-ever iPad Insight Site Survey. It’s something I’d been wanting to do for ages – as I really wanted your feedback on what you like and dislike about the site, and your thoughts on how we can improve it for you.
I am very happy to say that we got a great response to the survey – with hundreds of surveys completed and just a mountain of invaluable feedback and some excellent suggestions.
Thanks so, so much to all of you who took time to fill in the the survey! The feedback is incredibly helpful. Our gift card winner, for the $50 Amazon gift card, is Peter K. I’ve already contacted him by email, verified it was a valid account with a real person behind it, and sent off his gift card.
I’ve been watching survey results and responses throughout the week and also spent a couple of hours scanning them this afternoon. I’m going to spend lots of time going going through them thoroughly in days to come, but for now I thought it might be fun to share with you some of the results that are already shining through quite clearly.
Here are just a handful of interesting numbers, key points, and suggestions that have caught my eye in my initial scans of the survey results:
iPad app reviews is the most popular post type, with 81.8% of respondents choosing it, closely followed by iPad tips and tricks, chosen by 73.9% of respondents.
In terms of what you’d like to see more of, app reviews came out on top again, named by 60% of survey takers.
A good number of readers would like to see more accessory reviews, and a very large number would like to see more advanced tips posts.
When it came to sharing thoughts on how to improve the site there were a large number of responses saying we are already doing quite well and ‘keep up the good work’ sort of thing – that’s nice to see of course. There were also a huge number of very useful suggestions on how we can do better and improve the experience – again, these are just priceless and much appreciated. I’ll be devoting a lot of attention and effort to reviewing all the suggestions, comments, and results – and working on implementing some of the best suggestions as well of course.
Thanks again to all who took part – I’m delighted with how well this first site survey went.
