User researchers live in a world of creating hypotheses, testing ideas, and championing their users. User researchers are tasked with two business-critical jobs—leveraging research that brings visibility to users’ needs and areas of friction; and guiding product and business decisions based on those user insights. Use this User Researcher Toolkit to bring more value to your users and your business, and get all your burning questions answered.

How do we address user needs and exceed their expectations?

  • What is causing friction for our users?
  • Which user pain points should we prioritize?
  • What is the optimal product experience?
  • Are these insights representative of our target users?
  • How is our user experience compared to competitors?

How can we empower internal decision makers with user research?

  • What do our internal teams know about our user base?
  • How might we generate the right insights to address business challenges?
  • Can we minimize internal biases and assumptions by leveraging actual user feedback?
  • What are the best ways to effectively communicate user insights?

Here are some common mistakes and best practices on how to avoid them.

Looking for ways to improve your research initiative? Here are some things you can avoid:

Confirming only known or familiar insights while ignoring new or unintuitive learnings will lead to biased insights and decisions.

Get directional learnings and common themes from a small panel, but avoid assuming they can represent all your target users.

Instead, aim for clarity and choose clearly defined and well-understood terms so that you get unbiased responses.

Want to know what user research experts suggest? Check out these tips:

Combat internal assumptions or biases by sharing your user research consistently across your organization.

Not every user’s opinion is equally important. Survey the right audience based on specific business objectives to answer key questions.

A snapshot is good, but understanding longitudinal trends in user behavior will make your product competitive and relevant.
