Commentary: Survey will help us meet the needs of the Verde Valley

Pam Miller

Dear Readers,

What newspapers do you read? What websites do you visit? Where do you shop? How do you use our newspaper and our website? Answers to these and other lifestyle and shopping questions not only help Verde Valley Newspapers give you the information you need and want, but could also land you a terrific prize! Look inside today's paper for your survey and return it by mail no later than Aug. 6, 2014, or drop it off at one of our offices-283 Third St., Camp Verde, or 116 S. Main St., Cottonwood.

Verde Valley Newspapers has partnered with Pulse Research, an independent, respected, research company, in conducting this study on our behalf. This survey should take approximately 20 minutes to complete. We are living in uncertain economic times and are hoping this research will provide insight into the economic climate of the communities we serve and enable us to strengthen the community bonds we share.

Verde Valley Newspapers has an obligation to its readers and website users to be proactive within the communities we serve, this is not an obligation we take lightly. With a better understanding of your spending and purchasing plans we will be able to show local businesses that our readers are in the market for the products and services they offer and regardless of the economy, there is a demand. This poses an opportunity for local businesses as well as our readers and visitors. In showing local businesses that they need to advertise so our readers can bring shopping dollars their way, our local economy will be strengthened.

The more local ads we run, the more local dollars stay in our communities. We are in the unique position of being able to positively affect our readers, local businesses and ourselves, but we cannot do it without you! This survey takes a little time to complete, but rest assured it is time well spent. Your information will be kept confidential and used for this survey's purposes only. You will not receive any solicitations as a result of completing this survey. I thank you in advance for your participation in helping make our local economy stronger.

If you really wanted everyone's opinion, why not put it on your website! First, I don't want to mail or drop off a survey. Out of my way, too passe'.
Second, I read your on line edition and your ads everyday. Even days just to see nothing new happened.

I notice the online advertisers. I talk about your online advertisers particularly when one has changed names recently.
I haven't purchased a physical paper in over a year. I don't need the physical paper and I have a hard time reading the font.

Keep publishing! You serve an important function in our community. I just happen to prefer on line news to the old paper.
