Web Applications Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Something like PollDaddy / SurveyMonkey but they provide the participants. Preferably these participants would have already completed a general purpose survey to determine their demographic. I imagine you would pay per participant they get for you.

What you're looking for is called "market research." Yes, it exists. There is an entire industry dedicated to market research. I would start by searching Google for "online market research."

thanks Joel, I know there are many companies you can engage to do market research but I was wondering if anybody had neatly rolled up PollDaddy / Mturk along with demographic selection. I'm UK based and thus can't sign up for Mturk easily. –  user7070 Dec 31 '10 at 12:36
Like I said ... Google "Online Market Research." I found plenty of credible options, for example Zoomerang offers one –  Joel Spolsky Dec 31 '10 at 20:07

How about Mechanical Turk ? I've only used it as worker (not requester), but it should be possible to require to finish your general survey, before filling out other surveys you have.

Thanks pritaeas, I'm UK based so this is a pain to sign up for, but does appear to be the best option. For anybody who is interested this time I used PollDaddy and a chain email which got me a hundred or so answers quickly but this isn't really repeatable as my friends will start getting pi**ed off. –  user7070 Dec 31 '10 at 12:39
