Results from my 2013 Reader Survey

Results from my 2013 Reader Survey

One of the biggest challenges I've faced since starting the blog and the podcast has been getting to know you.

As a reader and listener, you can help shape what topics I write and talk about. Your interests, challenges, and struggles are my interests, challenges and struggles.

I could say you and I are the same, but we both know that's not true. If it were, I wouldn't have to ask what you're up to.

Last year I launched my 2013 reader survey. I asked some odd questions – questions I thought I should ask instead of questions that would have better helped us both.

With this year's survey I promise to do better.

2013 Reader survey results 700

But before I dive head first into the woulda, coulda, shoulda, here are the results from my 2013 Reader Survey!

Who is my average reader?

I want to introduce you to Jenna. She has been reading for a while now, but her busy schedule at work only allows her to check out the site a few times a week.

Jenna attends church on Sundays and considers herself to be fairly religious. She was born in California but moved to Texas a few years ago.

She enjoys the arts, specifically TV, music and movies. Jenna uses these things as an escape from her day job where she works behind the scenes crunching numbers and working on a computer.

She likes that she can read about success, get motivation and feel empowered from her laptop, because the screen on her iPhone is just a tad too small for her to read. Jenna is in her mid-thirties after all.

Despite working behind the scenes, Jenna makes pretty good money. She doesn't struggle with debt and she's grateful for the education she's received.

Getting her degree was a big deal and she enjoyed learning, but now that she's got a job, she only gets to spend a couple of hours a week on personal development.

Does Jenna sound like you?

And here are the exact comments I received in response to the question, “What would you like to see more of from Empoweringthe80Percent?”

  • You're doing an Amazing Job! Keep it up!
  • Ellory doing more video interviews. Finding your unique voice. How does your blog add value to bunch of other blogs? What's your USP?
  • Continue with the foundation building for successful personal and professional development. The articles are very down to earth and identifiable, which helps with my personal growth.
  • More interviews.
  • Loved the game of thrones articles!
  • Motivational content that stems from aspiring to “people build.” In other words, ideas that assist us to “grow cooperative mindsets” or inspire others to follow our lead. I like your work. Keep up the great job!
