What's the best way to distribute a survey about my venture (to maximize responses)?

I recently sent out a survey re:my venture to my social networks but my response rate is super low (only 23 responses after 3 days). And it's a short survey too. Are there any good platforms out there for distributing something like this?

Looking for a few hundred responses at the very least.

We sent out our survey via survey monkey to our email list, and offered laptop stickers to anyone who participated. We also shared the survey on Facebook and Twitter. Even sharing it to a few different places, we needed to remind people 3-4 times before they participated. Keep sending it via email, and make sure you have a small incentive to encourage participation. Good luck!

Though many of today's platforms, such as SurveyMonkey and AYTM, have good demographic targeting, you can end up getting biased data because it's a specific set of people who opt into answering surveys for tiny bits of money or charity. For example, what subset of people will answer a 40 question survey for 50 cents to charity (SurveyMonkey)? 

Shameless plug, but I'd take a look at HelloToken -- we're able to distribute survey questions to people in the right context (e.g. a reader of a technology article) by getting users to answer a question for access to an article. In this fashion, we can get people who don't normally answer surveys to answer your questions as well as contextually target your surveys to people who are interested in the space in which you work (optional). We have millions of respondents and can get thousands of responses within hours.

What is the value you offering people for their opinion?  People are willing to share if they feel it is a win / win.
