“Tellwut is grateful to its quickly growing and actively engaged community of panel members. It’s a great thing when an online community has reached a size and level of engagement where they have begun to grow and share their opinions organically on the site. Tellwut has proven to be an exceptional outlet for members to “tellwut” they think and also discover what other individuals think of similar topics. We are thrilled to have such an active site with over 3 million page views monthly and users spending an average of 14 minutes per session,” says Matthew Battiste, Director, Marketing & Sales at Tellwut.
Tellwut Corp. has reached a milestone with over 100,000 participants having voted on over 10,000 online surveys. The Tellwut team scanned its archive to find some of the most entertaining, intellectual and controversial topics of interest.
- Tellwut polled their panel members and asked whether they felt that North Korea might launch a nuclear missile attack. 62% of Americans and 52% of Canadians indicated they were concerned that this was a real threat. When asked whether the US should be engaging in nuclear testing, 33% of Americans said yes, while 36% said no and 31% were undecided.
- A Tellwut member wondered how long it took for people to conceive. Over 6,500 people answered this survey. For those who had conceived, the breakdown was as follows: 53% conceived in the first six months, 20% by the end of the first year, 10% during the second year and 17% conceived at 3+ years.
- With the recent mass shooting in Newton, Connecticut a panel member asked whether the US would ever see a statewide ban of guns. The results revealed that only 16% felt that this might become a reality, with an overwhelming 66% saying this would never be the case, while 18% were undecided.
- Tellwut asked its panel members if they felt the charges were fair in the highly publicized trial of the two Steubenville Ohio high school football players convicted of raping a 16 year old girl. One boy received a two year sentence, while the other received a one year sentence. 47% of women in the survey felt the sentencing should have been harsher versus only 40% of males feeling this way. Almost 45% of voters felt that some of the media coverage was biased; at times favoring the boys.
- Tellwutter’s enjoy a good comedic film. According to a survey conducted with almost 9,000 participants, 23% revealed that their favorite movie genre is comedy. Interestingly, 22% of participants stated that their comedy of choice is the Hangover.
- What do Tellwut panel members feel will disappear in the next decade? With almost 11,000 votes cast, the top three items to disappear were said to be the newspaper, people’s privacy, followed by telephone landlines.
- Tellwut’s business community is actively engaged in discussing business related topics on the newly created LinkedIn Group called Tellwut Crowdsourced Market Research. A recent survey conducted on staff meetings found that 78% of meetings are casual, 81% incorporate humor and only 36% are productive. In terms of social interaction, 50% of participants find meetings to be a great way to interact with colleagues. At least morale is positive if the meetings are not productive.
- On a light note, when asked about “shy bladder syndrome” which is a dislike or difficulty in urinating in a public washroom; 20% of Tellwutter’s said that they hate to pee in public facilities, 30% stated that they sometimes have an issue; while 49% have no problem letting loose in the company of others. On another note, when asked whether individuals would have more difficulty giving up the Internet, sex or the phone an overwhelming 54% responded that they could not live without the Internet. Sex came in second place with 29%, followed by the phone at 16%. The Internet has clearly become the “preferred companion” that people need in their lives.
The survey results provided are a small sampling of the surveys that Tellwut panel members let loose about. According to Tellwutters, Tellwut’s online community experience is entertaining, educational and allows individuals to actively engage and debate with others.
