For the past year and a half, the On Tap blog has strived to help you document your experiences and become expert content creators. Our weekly tutorials have covered territory ranging from the perpetually useful (How To Manage your Online Rep) to the downright silly (remember How To Get Your Pet to Pose in a Costume?), and our showcases of user creations have given you an opportunity to practice and show off your new skills.
Now, as we move into 2017, we’d like to introduce two new formats that portray how Crowdtap puts consumer voices at the forefront: Members Weigh In and Tastemaker Feed.
Do you ever wonder about the results of all those polls you answer on Crowdtap? In Members Weigh In, we’ll be closing the loop by giving you the lowdown on what you and other members feel regarding certain hot topics and current events. In the Tastemaker Feed, we’ll be rounding up recent blog and social media posts from the crème de la crème of the Tapper world and showcasing what they’ve been thinking, craving, or creating recently.
As always, both types of content will be aimed at increasing the visibility of real people’s opinions and experiences and making sure brands (and the corporations behind them) are in tune with the needs of those they serve.
Ready to explore what fellow members are saying? Let’s dive into our very first edition of Members Weigh In!
Last week, the Consumer Electronics Show, a long-running annual tradeshow that often acts as the launchpad where next-generation technologies are introduced to the marketplace, took place in Las Vegas. We introduced you to some of the coolest new gadgets premiered at the show, and asked us to tell us what you thought of them.
When it came to the title of “Most Impressive” —
- Male responders made it a tie between the Lego Boost and the Dish AirTV (13% each)
- Female responders made it a tie between the Zera Food Recycler and the Willow Smart Breast Pump (13% each)
General astonishment didn’t always translate to buying probability, however.
While males responders indicated they were the “Most Likely to Buy” the two products they were impressed by (Lego Boost and Dish AirTV at 14% each), female responders indicated they were most likely to purchase the Fisher Price Smart-Cycle (15%.)
We then queried users about their favorite tech purchases of the past few years. As expected, the love affair with Apple gadgets was in full effect. An overwhelming percentage of you called out your gratitude for iPhones, iPads, and Apple TVs. Other commonly cited faves were the Fitbit, Amazon Echo, and various smart TV models.
When it came to dream inventions for CES 2018, you guys got pragmatic. Robot cooks, servants, snow cleaners topped your lists. Also popular were safe (and self) driving technologies, more efficient ways to use solar energy, and more varied tech wearables, such as rings and shirts that connect to smartphones.
What do you think? Were your opinions in line with the rest of the Tapper community or are you marching to the beat of your own drum when it comes to tech tastes? Let us know below.
