Who are the members? - Survey Results

Updated on October 6, 2020

Thank you to all the members who took the survey I posted last week!

Even though only a small number of the members filled out the survey (a little over 500 people responded), I still think this gives me a good idea of who my audience is.

Survey Results

As you can see from the results above, I have four main groups of people: prosumers, aspiring videographers, business people, and hobbyists.

This is great news for me because I feel like I know what these people want from video training. How do I know? I was there myself. I started as a hobbyist, then became a prosumer, used video in my business, and was an aspiring videographer -- all of this before becoming someone who does video production for a living. It's a common progression I see.

Based on what I learned from this survey, I have LOTS of ideas for 2011 tutorials!

One thing surprised me.

I never would have guessed that such a small percentage of the paid members are aspiring filmmakers. I thought it was higher. I'm not sure why I thought that - maybe because of emails I received - but I was surprised to see that less than 5% fit this description.

Conclusion

I have more questions for you, but I'll get to those in future surveys maybe. For now, I'm just glad to have a clear idea of who I'm talking to, and the kinds of things you're likely looking for.
