A while ago I posted my questionaire for Nature based-tourism preferences of UK holidaymakers in Canary Islands. I tried various other methods, including student emails, and so far it is going slowly (very much so) but steady. Due to nature of my research, I already have some trouble fining people from UK who went to Canary Islands, enjoyed the nature there AND are willing to complete the questionaire. However, because I am student myself and can distribute the questionaires to other students, this wouldn't be so much of the problem.
Except, I am also looking for responses from people, between 34 and 65 years old or older and this is particularly tricky part, especially since I am doing the whole distribution online. The most convieniet forums, such as Trip Advisor (where tourists post their experiences) take out the posts with questionaires immediately (I was banned from there too) and in many cases, admins from Facebook groups either have to appove the post, or take it out as soon as they notice. It makes it so much difficult to collect even small number of responses. Maybe some of you experienced simmiliar situation with your questionaire collection, and I would appreciate a lot for any advices or ideas how to overcome this.
Sorry for a long post :/
