How to carry out effective user research by Chloe Darke — last modified Mar 22, 2019 11:51 AM
Building a new digital service can be hard. How do you know what features your users will need the most? Or what platform they’ll be most likely to use? Fortunately you don’t need to have all the answers yourself. In fact, you shouldn’t. Because that’s what user research is for.  User research is not the same as market research , and 1:1 interviews will give you more valuable, in-depth insights than surveys and focus groups. The point of user research is to find out about your users’ attitudes, behaviour, goals and challenges. It’s about uncovering how they see the world, and how they behave in it. If you understand this, you can design and build a service that users’ need, not what you think they need. Before starting any user research, think about the people you’re engaging with. Put yourself in their shoes. This will help you decide how best to interview your users and how to make them feel at ease in the session. Anything from cups of tea to ice-breakers can help build rapport and trust. Tips for effective user research

How to Avoid Writing Off Bad Business Debts by Patrick Cole — last modified Mar 21, 2019 02:38 PM
Bad debt is credit, owed by a debtor that is likely to be unpaid. It can be due to a debtor going bankrupt, or their business going into liquidation. Since the debt cannot be recovered, it is meaningless to put it in the books of account. Sometimes, pursuing the debt may prove to be costlier than the debt itself. If this happens, you write it off as a business expense. Bad debts are the worry of many businesses. In the business world, customers always request to pay for services by direct debit or standing order.
