It's always a good idea to seek feedback from fans but (and this is NOT a condemnation of what you're doing)... asking those questions here is bound to give you a very limited slice of the pie. After all, the people on this board are probably the diehard C*4 fans and, while their support is admirable, they alone can't support you if you just cater to them. (It's a numbers thing - nothing personal fellas.)

Maybe you've done this?... Hand out feedback questionnaires at your events to the fans as they're leaving. Include a link to an online version of same. Maybe make it worth their while to keep long enough to actually carry home & fill out - a coupon for a couple bucks off their next ticket, a fold-able prepaid postage gimmick... something.

The diehards are gonna come anyway unless you drastically change things (which is unlikely) and maybe what they want isn't what the majority want. How're you gonna know if you don't tap into that majority... and they ain't hanging out here.

I heard of a fed that included a link to an online feedback gimmick on the flyer for their next show that they handed out to people as they were leaving (as opposed to just papering the seats prior to that night's show.) As an incentive they shilled (verbally and on the flyer) that filling out the feedback gimmick online gave entry into a draw for a number of prizes - dvds, t-shirts and the grand prize... free admission for 1 year. Of the 300+ flyers they handed out that night they got a whisker under 200 responses to their online feedback gimmick.

Again, not to diminish or otherwise attach any negatives to what you're doing with this thread... just saying there might be other ways to better reach a more representative sampling of your overall fan base.

What do you most like about C*4 that you do not find in other available products?
More ladies action than the other feds.   
What makes you chose to spend money on C*4 events rather than other available products (international or local)?
Better value for my money.
Where do you see room for improvement in terms of our events?
Should be more favour to the local guys.
What do you wish there was more of in C*4?
More championships e.g. tag team championships, woman's championship
What ways do you think we could better spread the word about C*4?
Aquire someone that is strong in sales that will go out and sell lots of tickets, the more new fans that get to see the show, the more you will get by word of mouth.
How did you first become aware of C*4?
A flyer given to me at a PCW show. 
What was your first C*4 show?
The very first one.
What "hooked" you to become a C*4 fan?
I would guess the very first show?

Not to kiss ass but Gordo makes a good point. Gimmick the gimmick.

I understand what Gordo is saying - however, these questions are for the exisiting hardcore fans.  I wanted to see what got them to to the point they are now. 

I think the targeting of casual fans in attendance is something I will be looking into - and probably be doing next season.

I am all in favor of volunteering to take a survey or poll of people for the exiting fans. Ideas, thoughts, Chest sizes, well for the ladies and Anthony LOL

@jason

I have tried handing out posters in malls and suck and each and every time I have been escorted  off the property by saying it is private property and the next time the police would be called. Anyone who doubts that ask my street team about the SCOTIA PLACE incident.
