Hey how's it going?

I have an online survey that I'm doing for my entrepreneurial studies class and would appreciate anyone taking it. I need to do background research on my idea to see if what I'm trying to fix is really a problem for people or not

The aim of survey is find current buying habits and see if there are any problems in terms of finding products that you want to buy.

If you don't mind taking it, thanks in advance ... if you do mind taking it, no hard feelings, thanks anyways!

Also your service would only be helpful if it could list where to find a product and compare prices as well.

EDIT: Looking at your other posts, it's clear that you keep doing surveys like this and not much more. I feel a bit spammed =(.

Hey Metro and Jet, thank you for the feedback ...

also, just curious, but why would you feel spammed?

if I can prove this is a need then I could possibly get funding to get this app built ... I promise you I wouldn't be doing this if I didn't think it would actually be beneficial to people; however, I don't personally have the money lying around to pay people to have this done ...

oh and I wouldn't expect people to pay to use a search engine, so it's not like i'm looking to make money off of people using this service either ...

anyways, hope you don't feel spammed and again thank you for your feedback

p.s. - the reason my other surveys are similar is because I have to keep refining them for the group of people I'm presenting the info to :-/

oh and in regards to price, i'm not sure if it'll actually list prices because i'm focusing on independent retailers as opposed to big box retailers/large chain stores ... if the independent retailers start competing on prices (which they would have to if prices were listed) then they'd probably go out of business

also, most of the time the independents are the same price as the other places ... but again, if price becomes the determining factor then their products become a commodity and their business is over ... i'm a fan of the independent retailers (boutiques) so I don't want to see them go
