How Behavioural Recruitment for research works

Behavioural Recruitment is a radically different approach to research participant recruitment, powered by live social data on 2 billion people worldwide.

We don’t have a database - we find fresh participants for every project who:

  • Genuinely match your criteria based on demonstrated behaviour
  • Are qualified in a 3-step process
  • Give 47% more data than traditional recruits

We never add people to a database to be contacted about future projects and we never sell on any personal information. We’ve recruited tens of thousands of excellent participants over the last few years. Each has been financially rewarded for sharing their views on subjects that they’re genuinely interested in, for every kind of research project from face-to-face groups, to online surveys, to accompanied shopping trips.

Our clients say…I used Liveminds on a major project for a new client. The quality of the participants was excellent. Spot on recruitment, with talkative people willing to share very personal stories and react constructively. We got great output, the clients were delighted and we would definitely use Liveminds again.Alan Terry, CEO, Vanilla ResearchSource: Liveminds
“Until recently, finding ‘real people’ was a challenge, given the reliance on research panels and networks of relatively seasoned respondents. Liveminds innovative approach to sourcing truly real people based on real life behaviour has given our ‘real life’ angle a major boost. The speed in which we can execute studies adds to the sense of real time research and the quality of output we have received has been second to none: great quality videos from thoughtful and relevant people. We are looking forward to growing our collaboration significantly in 2018.”Richard Owen, Chief Transformation Officer, Hall & Partners
“Our experiences of working with Liveminds are always very positive, from their lightspeed turnaround of cost requests to their consistent ability to achieve unusual audiences we’ve found unreachable through traditional recruitment methods. Liveminds ability to work with our recruitment profiles and ensure that genuine, fresh participants are targeted from the online population means we know we can trust their recruits, and helps to ensure that their participants are enthusiastic and knowledgeable about our clients’ products and competitors. Big thumbs up to the team and many thanks for all of your hard work and effort on our behalves.”James Alliak-Howlett, Senior Project Manager, Quadrangle Research Group 
“The research industry is built on integrity so the quality of participants is vital. Increasingly I've heard clients complain about qual recruitment; they see the same person in different groups and question whether they're professional participants. That's why I'm a big advocate of Behavioural Recruitment. Liveminds finds people based on what they do, not just what they claim. They’ve found me fresh people - which one client said was a big reason for my selection. I've also noticed high participant engagement - they're more likely to be motivated by sharing their views than just the incentive. The team is responsive, full of integrity as well as transparency and I’d recommend them to anyone.”Tom Woodnutt, Founder, Feeling Mutual
