Broker Survey and Weekend Reading – May 22, 2009

Discount Brokerage Survey

A reader, who is currently trying to complete his Ph. D, requires some data on website characteristics and  their effect on customer loyalty to an online broker.  He created a survey geared towards those who trade online with a discount brokerage which should take 5-10 minutes to complete.  If you have the time, you can help someone in obtaining their Ph.D!  He has also thrown in an incentive –  all completed surveys will be randomly drawn for a $500 prize.  Note that MDJ is not affiliated with this survey.

    I did see his subscriber base, and my first thought was that you were on fire with the blog business.

    Keep the case study work comming, i think it’s a great way to get readers involved.

    Tucker, yes, it would be very challenging to maintain two blogs that post often along with a full time job. Heck, it’s challenging with one blog! :)
