A Quick-Start Guide to User Research Recruiting [Template Inside]

Train your UX research team to recruit the right participants, the right way, with this customizable template.

Recruiting unqualified participants can at best, inconvenience you, and at worst, invalidate your entire study. As a research leader, it’s important that you’re able to explain the importance of effective recruiting and train your team to get it right. 

We’ve created a templated quick-start guide to recruiting for user research to help you set your team up for success. Feel free to download and adapt the guide to fit the specific needs and use cases of your organization. 

This templated quick-start guide to UX research recruiting includes: 

  • What is User Interviews?*
  • When and how to plan a study
  • How to recruit participants for research
  • User research tips and best practices
  • More about how to use User Interviews for recruiting*

✍️ * User Interviews (that’s us 👋) is a user research recruiting and panel management platform. That’s all we do, and we do it better than any alternative method, so we’ve included information about us in the template for our customers and prospects. If you’re not a UI customer, you’re welcome to swap out our documentation for whatever recruiting tool or method you use—but of course, we’d be stoked if you give us a try. :)
