The annual State Of Skate industry surveys have launched and are already working to gather important, helpful data.
In case you’re new to the industry or it’s been a while since you’ve taken the survey, a quick refresher: each year, TransWorld Business takes a comprehensive look at the state of skateboarding through their annual survey. By working closely with IASC and Strategic Market Intelligence their goal is to help gather and provide information on the overall health of the industry.
In addition to their retailer survey, they’ll also be aggregating information from skateboard manufacturers, as well as core skaters, to provide insight that retailers can use in their day-to-day business and marketing strategy. This year, they’ve even teamed up with a third-party research agency, which will elevate the data to a whole new level and provide the industry with deeper analytics.
As we all know, running a business doesn’t offer a whole lot of spare time. That’s why the State of Skate survey is designed to take only 10-15 minutes of your time. The information you provide and the resulting research findings will assist in building an insightful overview that will help develop your short and long term business plan. The more participants, the greater the insights and resulting value will be to your business.
To sweeten the deal, anyone who submits a completed survey will be entered into a drawing to win a free VIP Package to this year’s IASC Summit, May 12-13th, 2016, which includes 3 nights hotel accommodation and one VIP ticket to the Skateboard Hall of Fame. Not bad for 15 minutes that could help your industry and improve our business!
