Hi all, I'm trying to setup a guerrilla style research process at my compnay and I'm trying to figure out the best way to recruit participants for the various research methods I'll be using. So, I have a few questinos I hope you can help me with...
How do you recruit for participants?
How do you screen for the right participants? What sorts of things do you look for?
How do you determine how much you'll pay them?
Is it based on the study methodology type, length of time it will take, the difficulty of the study method, whether they're a professional or non-professional, onsite versus remote, etc.?
How do you pay participants (cash, gift card, nothing)?
How do you schedule participants?
What do you do about now shows?
Do you ever have participants who aren't who they said they were during the screening process? How do you deal with that?
I know that's a lot to be asking for, but I'm hoping to get some insights on at least some of this. I really appreciate the assistance.
