When you ask tech folks to design or redesign the company website or app, you’ll likely end up with a product that only they will find wonderful.
Smart companies know that if you’re building something for “outsiders” (customers, prospective customers, job seekers, etc.), you need an outside opinion.
To that end, many companies will pay you to use and rate their clients’ apps and sites. Your candid opinion of what you like or don’t is valuable input.
Following, are six sites where you can sign up to review sites, apps, and other products!
Essentially, you’ll need to download an application that will record what you are looking at on your computer screen (their site), and your voice as you navigate their site and voice your opinion of what you see. Some will also capture your image so they can see your reactions to their site in addition to hearing them.
What You’ll Need
Again, each company has their own tech criteria, but generally speaking, you’ll need an up-to-date computer with a microphone, high-speed internet connection, up-to-date version of your browser (Chrome, Safari, Firefox, etc.), and a clear speaking voice.
Pay varies from site to site, with some offering “quick test” options that pay a little less, and others with deeper feedback options that pay more. Read through each site carefully to find the ones you feel are the best fit for you.
Where to Find These Gigs
In their words: Testers who work with us come from all walks of life. Some are software developers or testers, looking to hone their skills or test on new platforms. Others are tech enthusiasts who turn their passion into extra cash. And some are transitioning into a new career, earning while learning. With test IO, they work when, where, and how they want.
Most tests pay by the bug. You earn more money for more critical bugs — up to $50 for the most important bugs. You can also earn guaranteed money by reviewing apps or completing scripted test cases.
In their words: Get paid to use websites and apps and give your honest feedback!
At TryMyUI we help make the web easier for everyone to use by letting designers and coders see the obstacles that real people run into on their sites and apps.
All you have to do as a tester is be yourself: use the test website exactly as you would in a real-life situation, and voice your thoughts and frustrations out loud so the site developers can understand your experience (and others’ like you).
- You will be paid $10 for each test you take. A typical test lasts approximately 20 minutes.
