A survey is statistically based, extracting insight from a few and being able to assert its truth across a wider population.   If it's a survey, you probably don't need to reach as many people as you think you do. And if it's a survey, you are almost certainly going to get skewed answers, because surveying the people who answer surveys is truly different from surveying a statistically valid sample of your audience.

The huge mistake is believing that you need to survey more and more people.
