Best practices

  • Combine specific contributors with new contributors you recruit from the UserTesting Contributor Network if you want a mix of people who are seeing the design for the first time and people who have seen your design before.
  • To ensure your test fills quickly, add a few contributors from the UserTesting Contributor Network in case your specific contributors aren't available.
  • If you have a group of specific contributors you want to test with regularly, consider creating a Favorite contributors network.
