Oh!Bento magazine market research

20121103-111235.jpg

I’m sure some of you will have seen my previous post but if not I am currently wanting to write a bento tutorial magazine. I want the magazine to be full of how to’s, reviews, product spotlight etc.

So I’m hoping to hear back from the fans of bento to help me work out the best way to go forward with this project, if you’re willing to help with this market research please copy and fill out this small questionnaire and post in the comments and please let your friends and family know so that they can fill in the form too 🙂
Thankyou 🙂
