Have you ever seen a TV show where one of the characters was a little loopy from a bad product testing experience? The good news is that paid testing is still alive and well online. What’s even better? You won’t have to drink dangerous chemicals or endure extreme physical pain like Homer Simpson did. Instead, you can get paid for testing a website from the comfort of your own home. Pretty sweet, right?
Yep, you read that correctly. You can get paid for recording how you perceive and interact with a company’s website. And you don’t even have to leave home or change out of your pajamas to get started!
Why do companies care about this?
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. As an average Internet user, your behavior and opinion is very important to companies. They want to know why you use the Internet, what you use it for, how you use it, when you use it – everything!
Specifically, user testing allows companies to see how their average visitor interacts with their website design, function and copy. Is the layout too confusing? Are the headlines effective? Are there any bugs or glitches? These are just some of the many questions that user testing answers for companies.
Your answers provide them with the data they need to improve their website. An improved website typically leads to more sales, which is what companies are looking for. Your testing and feedback as the average web surfer is extremely valuable to companies with an online presence.
