Polls Do Indeed Offer Accurate Reflection - Feb. 25, 2010
Okay, I'll admit it...wasn't sure about the poll question on the new Web page.
Yes, I've taken the two seconds it takes to vote on a poll here and there on various Web sites. Never been a big fan of the three selections including Yes, No, Unsure.
The unsure thing always had me scratching my head. How could you vote for anything if you weren't sure.
They don't give you that option at polling stations, although...
Having said that, our Web designer gave us the option to put a Web poll on the front page and we did as we're told.
Thing is, it's been pretty accurate.
We went with an easy one to start, asking customers what food they purchase at Animal Essentials.
We had 47 votes, which is pretty good considering the site isn't officially a week old yet, and the reflection of the clicks is almost the exact detail as our food pecking order.
Blue Seal was the runaway winner at 47.8 per cent. Canidae was second at 21.7 per cent. Taste of the Wild was 17.39 and ProSeries was 13. Taste of the Wild has certainly jumped up in popularity, but actually trails ProSeries, but it's a neat indicator. Those on Taste of the Wild are indeed a loyal crew.
Nutro came in last without a vote.
The trials and tribulations of getting Nutro products to the store has been well documented.
Enough said on that.
We will update the poll every 7 to 10 days and we welcome suggestions on what you would like to see.
Just remember...we can't have an Unsure option.
