I am a fitness professional as well as a PhD student. I would like to conduct some research on social media marketing in the fitness industry, however, I have not had much luck getting participants to fill out the survey. I have tried to partner with gym owners, but have received little response from attempts. Does anyone have any connections or ideas about how to get this survey out there? I appreciate any thoughts!
Try reaching out to your network first, and then ask them to reach out to theirs. If that doesn’t work, try offering incentives for being a participant. I think people will be more inclined to participate in research if they get something in return. Try using infousa.com to get some email and contact information for the fitness industry and sending out some emails.
Hope this helps,
