Same boat! But I try to get decided in between Podtrac and Kiptronic!
1/ As far as kiptronic, they were mostly down yesterday. I noticed
that you can get the results the day after (from the surveys taken the
day before). Also, and it is just a supposition, maybe out of those 13
people, just 9 of them gave their zip code (which will not appear on
the geographical untill you reach 10 ?).
2/ I try to ask some questions to the folks (if they have some deal
and stuff like that) - No answers yet.
The CEO of Podtrac calls me evry now and then - even if they are hard
to get in touch with, they are mostly scared of loosing a good media
(that is just my opinion).
Also, the issue with podtrac, is that their survey is really long!
Besides that, and as you know, as Libsyners, we can not re edit the
I guess both of them are in their first steps.
What I come up with today, is that I will use the Kiptronic survey for
a good month - and we'll see the results.
If their data are not reliable, I will take my dispositions (I was
thinking making my own survey, using the service of Perseus, and
including more questions related to the podcast)
Sorry for thatlong reply, I am trying to include more question in it :)
