Forsyth Magazines’ Reader Survey:  You Spoke, We Answered



BY DENISE HEIDEL

In February, we asked our readers to participate in a readers’ survey – something we try to do on at least a semi-annual basis.  The feedback we receive is invaluable to us as we strive to grow and bring the best, most uplifting content to Forsyth County and the surrounding area. To that end, we wanted to share some of the feedback from our survey!  If you’re a reader, you may be curious about what other readers have said…. And if you’re an advertiser (or even a potential advertiser!), you may want to know a bit more about our readership!

Which titles do you read?

Forsyth Woman and Forsyth Family magazines have always enjoyed consistently high dual readership, and this year’s results demonstrated the same.  75% of readers pick up both magazines.

Where do you pick up your magazines?

It’s no secret that COVID has impacted our presence in doctors’ offices and other waiting rooms around the Triad.  However, we learned that over 50% of our readers pick up copies of the magazines at their local grocery store.  Additionally, we were delighted to know that distribution in restaurants and retail locations maintained high scores as well.

Do you read stories online?

Our website traffic has grown over the last year, with 73% of our readers reporting that they read articles online.   Additionally, 59% of our readers said they share our articles on social media and via email.

Do you follow us on social media?

Social Media is a critical platform for all businesses, and Forsyth Magazines is no exception.  70% of our readers follow us on Facebook, and 42% follow us on Instagram.  We also have a presence on Pinterest and Twitter.  If you haven’t liked or followed us on social media, please check out our pages for fresh, engaging content posted daily!

Have you listened to our podcast?

Those who have listened to our podcast gave glowing feedback, but it seems that many of our readers are unfamiliar with our podcast.  Don’t know where to start?  You can find our Podcasts updated weekly on both Forsyth Woman and Forsyth Family websites (look under the About tab).  You can also subscribe to the podcast on Apple, Spotify, or other major podcast streaming platforms.

Are you interested in becoming a newsletter subscriber?

Many of you said yes!  We send a monthly newsletter, and if you’re interested in subscribing, go to our websites (either one) and send us a message through our Contact Us form.

We learned a wealth of other information from you, too!  We are thankful for your feedback about your favorite columns, favorite writers, and suggestions for future content!  It was a great joy to see that our readers are enjoying the magazines, and we plan to utilize your feedback to make them even better.

Forsyth Woman and Forsyth Family Magazines can be found online through our hub, ForsythMags.com.  Be sure to subscribe to our podcast and follow us on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter).  If you are interested in learning more, please contact us through our website, and we’ll be in touch soon!
