Hello everyone.

I'm doing some market research for my degree project. I'm creating an online app that will aim to collate musical engagement opportunities for dep musicians/bands.

In order to show it's a viable idea, I need to do some market research.

To that end, could i ask for your help in completing a short survey? (30 seconds max!)

If you could share it around I'd really appreciate it!

The link is https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/8RJ2PV6

ALSO, I know theres some fantastic players on here, it'd be great if you'd let me send you a more detailed questionnaire for you to answer (an online interview).
If you've got the time, I'd really appreciate it!

If I'm in the wrong for asking please delete this topic and give me a slap on the wrists. I was hoping to use this great resource as a primary point of market research.

Thanks very much for your help!

Chris

That's easy, cows have lots of things hanging from their underbellies and provide loads of white liquid, if it only has one you won't get anywhere near as much white liquid. ;) ;) :blush:

I value everybody's opinion...especially when it's the same as mine

Yeah, I need to ensure the product is financially profitable. The ideas so far show that it won't require much maintenance, but this is something I'm still working out.


Guys thank you so much for your response so far. I'm a bit overwhelmed at the support!

Funky Dunky, It'd be great if I could ping you an e mail with more detailed questions and hopefully some detailed responses?

It seems that way, questionnaires aren't my strongpoint.

My angle was more of a based on the questions for this survey, would you sign up?

appreciate the time filling it out :)

Done, but agree with Nicko. The options seem to be paying commission AND a monthly fee, in my mind it should be one or the other but the options did not allow for this.

in that you want to 'show' that it is viable, rather than find if it is viable, and this may bias your interpretation of the survey results accordingly.

Done - well done on creating a good quality survey! Lots of my "professional" colleagues send out surveys that basically invite opinion rather than collecting qualitative data.

Two things to call out for the business plan, if your app is hosting personal data you need to ensure you have very secure hosting, and if you are taking payment card info you need to be compliant to the new legislation, think it's called PCI (not sure if PayPal avoids this issue or if this compliance applies to Paypal being used as a means of sending and receiving funds)
