Stephanie | Los Angeles
“I found the survey to be an enjoyable experience because I was able to listen to a wide variety of music genres, as well as state my preference. To add to that, I'm so glad that I had the opportunity to take part in this survey and I look forward to doing more in the future.”
Kathrina | London, England

Patrick | Midlands, UK
“I really enjoyed participating in the Music Survey. Rating the music clips was very easy. It was also great knowing that my opinion could potentially impact what was heard on the radio. Overall a great experience!”
Shaun | Jacksonville
"I thought the survey was fun to do. I am a classic rock fan and I was surprised how many songs I knew.
Probably because I am so old and have heard it all!"
Liz, San Antonio
"The UK Music survey was fun to do as I got to hear songs I hadn't heard in a long time, It was easy to complete and interesting too. To be picked as the winner of the Grand Prize was amazing, I have never won such a big prize before it certainly makes me want to do more surveys."
"My experience doing the survey was great. I took the survey honestly because there is one band played by my local station that I dislike and was hoping my ratings would influence them to play them a little less. Being chosen as the winner made it an even better experience."
Shawn, St. Louis
How does a station qualify for the guarantee?
P1 Media Group will discuss with you your objectives, goals, target and available assets (database, social, external panel, cluster) to determine if the CSMT® is right for you.
How do you determine if I’m satisfied or not?
During our initial discussion, we’ll agree on target number of “Votes Per Song” (VPS) which are the equivalent to your target sample. If we don’t meet that criteria, we won’t charge you. Also, if for some other reason, assuming you’ve met your responsibilities, you are not satisfied, we simply won’t charge you.
What are the station’s test execution responsibilities?
In addition to the recruitment P1 Media Group will provide, a successful CSMT® requires the station to complete a 5-step process.
How long will the test run on my station?
Times vary from 1 week to 6 weeks. We’ll agree to a time-frame guideline when discussing your objectives and goals.
