We Need Your Help

[Our 2011 reader survey is now closed. Thank you for taking the time fill out our survey. We greatly appreciate it. — Josh Marshall & TPM Staff]

I need your help with something.

As longtime readers know, once a year we do a reader survey. And it’s really important that we get as many responses as possible. If you’ve already heard enough and are ready to give us 4 or 5 minutes of your time, great. We really appreciate it. Please click right here.

If you want to know more, here’s the story: TPM is currently funded 100% through paid advertising. And advertisers want to know just who makes up the TPM audience. So we need that information to sell ads. And those ads bring in the money that keeps the reporters paid and the servers humming. It’s not only about selling ads but also selling higher quality ads and, hopefully over time, fewer and more high-paying ads. So it’s really simple: giving us 4 or 5 minutes of your time today makes a big difference in keeping TPM funded and thriving. We need you.

Some of you may have concerns about privacy. Let me put them to rest. We are not collecting or sharing any information whatsoever about individual people. We are compiling aggregate demographic, occupational and lifestyle data about our audience as a whole. That’s it. Nothing more.

So can you help us? It’ll only take a few minutes, tops. And it’s really a huge help for us. Please click right here to go to the survey page. And if you have any questions about why we’re doing the survey or why it’s important, please drop me a line at our comments email address up at the top right of the page and I’ll do my best to answer your questions.

Thank you.
