5. Affordable

Conducting usability testing doesn't have to break the bank. With the Lyssna panel, recruiting participants is affordable, at $1.00 per minute of test duration, with no additional fees for demographic targeting.

6. Quick results

Results from your tests typically arrive within just a few hours – if not minutes. This quick turnaround time allows for speedy analysis of the results and facilitates faster design iterations, saving valuable time. 

How to recruit using the Lyssna panel

There are two ways to recruit responses with Lyssna. From your own audience or by ordering responses from the Lyssna panel. We’ll take you through the steps for recruiting from the panel.

  1. Finalize your test in Lyssna and click Save and continue.

  2. This takes you to the Recruit tab for the test, where you make your way to the panel box and click Place an order. You can also access the recruitment page via the Dashboard by clicking the Recruit participants button directly from your test.

  3. Select the number of participants and the demographic targeting you need. We’ll provide an estimate of how long it will take us to provide these responses in real-time as you make your changes. For common demographics, responses should start arriving within a minute or two.

Pro tip: You can order as few as 5 responses and as many as 10,000, giving you the flexibility to scale up or down as needed.
