Every six months we ask a selection of C_NCENTRATE readers how we are doing to make the next six months better than the last for readers. It's a task we take seriously. With +18,000 readers it's important to understand what's working and what they would like to see changed moving forward. Overall we're doing well with just over 59% of respondents giving C_NCENTRATE an A or an A* but it turns out readers miss the *MUST READ* element (so we'll be adding that back in 2018). Based on prior feedback we dropped the number of links from ten to five but it appears you missed them so we'll be adding a few more. Finally, the new design will be going live in 2018 - it was promised this year but work got in the way - we're excited to show you a fresh and streamlined look.
OTHER FINDINGS/2018 CHANGES:
FOCUS: The top five answers (via categories) were; Emerging Technologies, Strategy, New Tools (new), Consumer Insights and Big Picture Analysis. These will feature more heavily over the next six months.
MISSING: Three elements popped up when asked (unprompted) what C_NCENTRATE was missing; robotics, tweetable links (we’re honoured!) and content that discussed 'purpose'. We will look for content in these areas and add tweetable links to each
BIGGEST ISSUES IN 2018: The areas that readers are finding challenging; strategy, what should I do, Content Marketing, next steps in verticals/tech (social media, Blockchain, advertising) and A.I....A.I. is very much of interest to readers. We overdid Bitcoin/Blockchain, however. Sorry.
MISCELLANEOUS: A few people requested increased frequency which is sadly something we cannot commit to at this time but there is always TNN, #social_lens, 8ight and 15 Minute Executive if you want more of us! Several respondents requested more implications of technologies for the everyday consumer so we'll do our best to include these moving forward.
NOTE: Sample size n=200, optional incentive used (75% entry rate).
