How To Plan User Testing

User testing is a process in which real users are asked to use a product or service to assess its usability. It is typically conducted by UX researchers or designers to gather feedback which can be used to improve user experience. Although there are many methods for conducting user testing, the ultimate goal of each will be to gain feedback from real users in a naturalistic setting. However, this does not mean that user testing should be used as a marketing tool or as a way to sell products. Rather, it should be seen as an opportunity to learn about how users interact with a product or service, and as a means of making improvements based on that feedback.

By getting feedback from real users early on, startups can avoid costly mistakes and ensure their products are designed with users' needs in mind.
