I convinced stakeholders to do usability testing and I was wondering about budget since I never done it. I know I want 5 users but how do I decide the budget?
Did you try just offering a yummy breakfast and some useful things of your own merchandising?
Depends if you recruit yourself and use your own lab and whether you want to pay your users.
Own recruitment, own lab. no reward. Cost: ZERO!
Own recruitment, own lab, reward ~ £30 per user minimum Cost: £150 for 5 users
Own recruitment, someone’s lab, reward ~ £500 min for 5 users
Specialist recruitment, someone’s lab, reward ~ £1,000 for 5 users
I plan research sessions often. These are accurate figures.
