Hi Dave,

I'd be a bit concerned at filling in contact details at the end of your survey, I think perhaps it could be seen as being asked to reveal more than just answers in a marketing questionnare, especially from a parents' point of view.

agree with above...... maybe you would want to make that bit optional.

optional

It might be optional, I filled it in and clicked send without filling in the form and didn't get an error message.

Obviously if it is optional, it should make it clear on the survey.


Best Wishes


Amanda

Hi guys

Thanks to those who filled it in, if there is anyone else out there who can help us we'd really appreciate it!

With regards to the feedback RE: the questions, I have now changed the last field for name/address etc to only be for people wishing to enter the prize draw and have made this clear on this question now. Thanks for the feedback.

If any of you have any suggestions on this I'd realy welcome them, we know a lot about kids parties but not being a parent myself doesnt really help to know from a parents point of view. We are conducting some local surveys shortly too but obviously the more feedback we gather the better our service (& business) can be.

Cheers
Dave

Hi Dave,

From a parent's point of view, security of information is very important. If you make a point of being registered with the Data Protection registrar (I think its around 80 quid per year) and guarantee privacy of information, that ticks a big box.

The other point is as soon as you've done a few successful parties, get some testimonials up there. If you watch BBC's programme on people's feedback on businesses (I can't think of the name of the programme, too early on a Monday ), there are regular features on organisers of children's parties who don't turn up and never return deposits.

The more testimonials and some sort of money back guarantee really add weight to your offering.

Done. My youngest is 12 but I've got loads of nieces/nephews down to a few months so I guess that counts
