How are you getting testers for your product?
Recruiting quality testers for your product isn't always that easy. If you already have a strong network within your target market, then all you have to do is tweet something. Now you've got 100+ people knocking at your door. But what if you don't have that? Maybe you could: - Post to an online group where your target users hang out (Reddit, FB etc) - Direct message people who are posting online about the problem you can solve - Create and share content that brings attention to what you're working on - Start networking from scratch. Make connections, build relationships, and eventually find introductions to testers in your target market. - Take out an ad in Craigslist or pay people on mTurk to test for you. All of these can be effective. But, they also have tradeoffs and risks. - some are slow - some take a lot of time investment - some can bring too much attention before you're ready - some can hurt your reputation if people don't like you posting or contacting them, etc. This can make getting testers even harder for product makers.
