Short survey – Wants needs and fears

Using a short survey to find out topic for your information product.

This is a short survey that I sent out to some of my email list. I just attended an online teleseminar by Tom Buford and he had recommended that as a first step in creating an information product that you ASK your list a simple 1 question — what is your greatest fear want or need.  Then using that information you select the best topic for your information product.

I decided to try this out and made a simple survey with Survey Monkey and sent it out to a sub-set of my mailing list as a test.  I was amazed.  The responses started coming in within seconds of posting the survey.  This is a great idea for anyone to try.
