For anyone in the user research field, I'm curious of how you recruit participants. Where are they sourced from? What are the ways you advertise for these testing sessions?
When I worked in academia, we recruited participants through school classifieds or we posted posters on bulletin boards around campus. In turn, most of our our participants were college students.
At my current agency, we're looking to dive into UX research and one of the questions we are trying to figure out is where to find people.
Do you simply post on Craigslist and screen for the target participant? Did you already have a participant pool (we also had this in academia but I'm not sure if there is one for our industry)?
Any advice or tips for participant recruitment would be awesome to hear.
