Reader survey offers Free Press readers $5000 cash prize

The Free Press is offering readers the chance to win $5000 cash just for participating in an online reader survey.

The survey questions will help to gauge shopping patterns of our East Kootenay readers over the next year. Your purchasing plans, whether big or small, are of great interest to our local businesses and have a huge impact on the strategies that these businesses will focus on for their customers.

With this important customer data, businesses will be able to focus on what shoppers will be purchasing, which will ultimately help strengthen our local economy. Because of this, your participation in the survey is vital.

We know our readers’ time is valuable, so to show our appreciation for your participation in the Pulse of Black Press Media survey, we’re offering a $5000 cash prize.

It’s as simple as logging on to Thefreepress.ca/contests to get started. At the end of the survey, you will be asked to provide your name and phone number; however, you can be assured that personal information is gathered for contest entry purposes only and will not be provided to any other sources.

“Newspapers have the ability and opportunity to deliver not only informative editorial coverage, but also to get across what our local businesses have to offer through advertising. Businesses trust our community newspaper to reach potential customers,” said Jennifer Cronin, publisher of The Free Press.

“The Pulse of Black Press Media survey will ensure The Free Press has up-to-date information from readers to be able to pass along to the local business community,” she said.
