Title: A Little Home Brew Survey
Post by: brewcurious on October 05, 2010, 09:25:18 PM
Hi everyone

I'm an Advertising major doing some market research on Home Brewers and their online habits. If you could be so kind to answer some survey questions I would greatly appreciate it!  I did notice that AHA already did a survey so if you don't want to answer questions you already answered, feel free to jump to question 8.
I won't use any of this information to sell to some big company either.

  b. South
  c. Midwest
  d. West
  e. Other

3). What do you do for a living?

4). How many children do you have?
    a. 0
    b. 2-3
    c. 4-5
    d. 5+

5). How long have you been home brewing?
    a. >1 year
    b. 1-3 years
    c. 4-7 years
    d. 7+ years

6). How much money do you spend on home brewing a year?
    a. >$1000
    b. $1,000-$2,000
    c. $2,000 +

7). How often do you participate in Home Brewing?
    a. Daily
    b. Weekly
    c. Bi-Weekly

8) Why did you begin home brewing?

9) Do you have any home brewing goals?

10).  How many hours per day do you spend online?
    a. >1
    b. 1-2
    c. 3-5
    d. 5+

11) What are the top 10 websites that you visit each day?
