Hello fellow eYeka members,

Last March, we asked you to answer a bunch of questions about you, the opinion you have on eYeka and the things you’d like to see evolve on the platform. Nearly 400 of you made it through the whole questionnaire, and we’d really like to thank you all for that! (of course, we also read and took into consideration the remarks of those who weren’t as patient ;-) ) Here’s a short summary of what you told us and some info about what we are planning to improve in the future!

It was the first time we ran a global survey, and we got responses from all over the world: the United States, China, Indonesia, the United Kingdom and France were among the most represented countries. The answers you gave us were very insightful: While some of you don’t like the concept of private call-for-entries that much, others ask for more selective contests... You should know that we always advise our clients to launch branded and public call-for-entries, but sometimes, for confidentiality reasons, they still prefer to run them anonymously.

Another matter that often came up is that you would like to get much more feedback on your submitted media and on jurys’ selected winners! You’d like to know more about jurys’ rationale and we totally understand your point! You’ve been working hard on a submission and the least that you expect from us is to provide you with timely feedback. We heard your claim and we’re pleased to inform you, this is now one of our top priorities!

But communication should flow both ways and we believe that a one time community survey is not enough to gather all the great ideas you may have about eYeka’s improvement opportunities. We love hearing from you and we’re currently working on finding ways to offer you more efficient tools to have a say in how our platform may evolve.

Also did you notice that the community reached 150.000 members?! To celebrate this new milestone we made an infographic about the state of the community: hopefully you will find it entertaining as well as educative. Draw conclusions from it and later on implement them in your creations to navigate on the shortcut to prize-winning. Knowledge is power, and power is key to success!
