Help us shape the newspaper

The Nelson Star is your community newspaper and now we want to hear from the community about how to make it better.

The Nelson Star is your community newspaper and now we want to hear from the community about how to make it better.

Starting today, the newspaper is asking readers to help shape the future of what you read and how you shop with an online survey.

“It’s absolutely vital that we stay in constant touch with our readers,” says Star publisher Chuck Bennett. “We are always listening to reader feedback and asking people in the community what they want to see us doing to serve them better. But this survey takes it to the next level.”

For the next four weeks the survey will be online at surveymonkey.com/s/63222XTX. You can also head to our website — nelsonstar.com — where you will find a link half way down the home page on the right hand side under “click for a chance to win.”

The survey asks nine questions, takes five minutes to complete and by taking part you have a chance to win an $800 big screen television supported by our partner at Nelson Sears.

“It takes no time at all, but the results will play an important role on the future of this newspaper,” says Bennett.

The survey questions are about the newspaper’s coverage, what readers value most from the product and local purchasing habits.

“We put our readers first,” says Bennett. “Unless readers tell us what they want, we won’t know how to better ourselves.”

You must be 19 or older to participate in the survey and draw.
