Thinking deeper..you yourself at some point may have had a hard time getting people to do a survey for some reason...whether it was for a family reunion, workplace improvements, activities to have at a BBQ etc. Most people rather find something else to do with there time because time is valuable.

  • To get political viewpoints. and so on..
