  • A good online screener can serve two key goals; It can tell you which customers fit the criteria and which customers an easily articulate themselves. This screener should consist of multiple choice questions and open-ended questions. You don’t want to go over 10 questions, so be thoughtful with what you ask upfront.
  • Your open-ended questions are a good resource to help you understand how the participants articulate themself.
  • Ask simple open-ended questions like; tell me a bit about yourself (hobbies, work, interests), tell me a bit about how you use [insert your product]. Using the first few questions in the research script is a good idea to give you sense of what it would look like when they are in the session.

This is an interesting idea. A resource that helps you to visually communicate your strengths.

PDF links often have file size next to them. Sadly, I think many regular page links should show this on mobile sites. #performance

    • Let People Know They Helped


      It is a seemingly small tip, but it can have great results – once you’ve conducted a study and figured out that you can introduce good improvements based on the feedback, let your users know about that, for two good reasons:

      • Firstly, they will feel acknowledged and appreciated as they learn that their input was actually valuable.
      • Secondly, they will be actually curious to see how they influenced the changes, so they will be eager to return, even if just for a look.

      And who knows, maybe the improvement you made is so crucial to their satisfaction that they might change their mind and join your service after all.
