UserFeel was created by a Greek web design company to provide inexpensive remote testing and feedback for website user experience. They advertise a fast and impressive turnaround time of less than 24 hours.
The company is able to provide this service due to its vast workforce of home-sourced testers. How would you like to earn some money while surfing the Internet? Read on to get the low-down.
You must be at least 18 years old in order to apply as a tester at UserFeel. When registering, you will be asked to provide some personal details and demographic information.
UserFeel has testing capability for many different languages in addition to English. Be sure to let the company know if you are multilingual when applying.
You’ll need some equipment in order to get started. Every tester must have a quality, functioning microphone, home computer setup and Internet connection. UserFeel provides software that allows you to record your screen as well as audio portions for reviews.
Each new tester needs to complete a sample test which includes an audio recording. The sample test enables UserFeel to rate each tester’s ability to provide suitable and helpful user reviews as well as verify their microphone quality.
The sample test shows UserFeel that you can simultaneously speak your thoughts into the microphone while performing tasks. It also shows the company that you have a microphone and are prepared to start work. Based on your sample test, you will receive a rating that will determine if, and how often, you can work.
The time it takes for your sample test to be reviewed will depend on the amount of new testers applying at that time. It can take anywhere from 7 days to 2 months.
Earning money is simple! As a UserFeel tester, you are asked to perform brief 15-minute usability assessments of clients’ websites with spoken and written components.
No two usability tests are alike. This keeps the work fun and interesting!
For each test you are provided with the landing page URL and a description of what you need to do on the site. Simply follow the client’s instructions to accomplish a task using their website.
While doing this task, you will also be speaking your thoughts out loud. Make sure you are speaking loudly and clearly into the microphone. Walk the client through your actions. Explain what and why you are doing what you do on the site. Share any problems, questions or issues which may be preventing you from easily doing what the client asked. This information will be used to improve the website design in the future.
Remember that you are given a rating by each client and your rating determines how much work you will get in the future. Be sure to provide useful comments and be as helpful as you can. Tell the client what confuses you and what attracts your attention. Propose something that would help you perform the required task.
