Survey Results On Personal Development Content
Recently, I did a small survey on what my readers and viewers wanted in terms of overall direction for my future articles and videos (including future episodes of Motivational WebTV). Here are the general results by each main question regarding topic.
Health & Fitness Related
Less Content = 2.9%
Same Amount As Now = 47.1%
More Content = 50.0%
These results indicate that half of you want more content in health and fitness related topics. This is not surprising since health is a major issue and many people find it a challenge to motivate themselves to do the right things for their health. So increasing the content with more health and fitness related content will be quite easy for me since I live and breathe health and fitness.
Wealth Building And Money Related
Less Content = 26.5%
Same Amount As Now = 35.3%
More Content = 38.2%
I have to admit that I was quite surprised about the results for this category. I would have thought that especially in this recession period, there would have been an overwhelming cry for more content related to wealth and money. But in this case, there is roughly equal amounts of readers in each response choice. Since there is about 2/3 of you who are happy with the current level or want more content, I’ll just increase the money content slightly but not too much.
General Motivation And Personal Development
Less Content = 0%
Same Amount As Now = 44.1%
More Content = 55.9%
Although I was surprised that nobody wanted less general motivational content, I suppose I should not be since the overall premise of my work is motivational in nature. This category also had the highest numbers in terms of where I should focus my future content. So I’ll keep full steam ahead in terms of bringing you more general motivational and personal development content. I’ll also try to write about the other topics so that there is still a motivational slant to them.
Diversity And Cultural Related
Less Content = 15.2%
Same Amount As Now = 54.5%
More Content = 30.3%
As a diversity speaker, I’ve already come to expect such survey results for this category. In my observations, diversity is a topic that is more important for organizations rather than individuals, especially when compared to other topics. Over half of you are quite happy with the current amount of content here. So I’ll perhaps only increase more diversity and cultural content a touch.
Entrepreneurship And Business Sales Related
Less Content = 34.4%
Same Amount As Now = 25.0%
More Content = 40.6%
This category had the most polarized results with approximately equal numbers wanting less content and wanting more content. So the wisest thing for me to do given such results is keep the status quo for business and sales topics as they seem to be for just a niche audience (even though I do have a new keynote for business audiences). This means that I’ll have only the occasional article or video on this topic area but when I do, I’ll make sure that there is a motivational element in there.
Work And Career Related
Less Content = 14.7%
Same Amount As Now = 55.9%
More Content = 29.4%
The results for this last category are similar to those I had for the diversity category. Therefore, I’ll only increase the content by a bit and only on occasion.
Many thanks to those of you who took the time to complete this recent survey!
