One of the first ways I actually made money online was when I saw some resources online regarding a few sites on website-testing. Could you actually make money doing this sort of thing? Well, that’s what I’m going to be talking about in this Whatusersdo Review.
Website testing or user testing as it is sometimes known, are companies that have a database of clients that want feedback on their sites. The type of clients can range from the big ‘well-known’ companies to small businesses.
Typically what these clients are looking for can be for various reasons. Clients may want to know how their site measures up to their competitors, they may want to know about the general user experience (which is sometimes known as UX) of their customers.
Okay, Can You Tell me More?
Sure, WhatUsersDo is a user-testing service that was setup in 2008 and have an office registered in the UK and the site states that they have clients from leading organisations such as Currys, Bt, NPower, Dixons, Tesco, Virgin Atlantic, B&Q, and lots of others.
The site allows users to apply as panel testers from around the globe. The countries listed are the United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and Sweden (It’s mentioned on the site that there are other countries other the ones I’ve mentioned that are eligible for potential testers).
It doesn’t hurt to apply and see if you can be a tester. If you’re not from the above-listed countries, you can try and see if you are accepted, you never know they may already accept applicants from where ever you maybe.
When applying to be a tester, you should see a tab listed as ‘another country’. When clicking that a form should show up for participants fill in and says ‘when we start testing in your country we will notify you’. As long as you speak good English and are good at speaking your thoughts you are good to go.
What do I Need to do to Begin?
Just make sure you have access to the internet with a Mac or Windows computer/laptop. The browsers most suitable are Firefox or Chrome.
As far as I’m aware the site also allows tests on mobile and tablets.
To start testing at WhatUsersDo, you will need to download a screen recorder.
To make sure you are the right fit you must take an audition test that you have to pass. You will be notified if you have passed and then you can begin taking tests.
A typical test will show up details for the type of test, for example, desktop/laptop, task instructions, and reward (payout) details.
Although there is not a limit on the number of tests you can take, please note tests can be taken up quickly. Some tests require you to meet certain criteria.Tests get taken up quickly but I have found if you spend a lot of time on the web anyway then I have the
As I mentioned before tests get taken up rather quick but I have found if you spend a lot of time on the web anyway then I usually have the WhatUsersDo site left open and just surf the web with another tab opened. This way if a new test appears you can go back take any available teats as quick as possible.
Depending on the region where you are from, the payment is 8 dollar/pound sterling/euros per test. The tests can vary anywhere between 5 to 30 minutes.
WhatUsersdo has stated that the completed test payout as of 1/Dec/16 is now 5 £/$/€.
However, the good news is that there are now more desktop and mobile opportunities available.
And so moving to the conclusion of the Whatusersdo review,
It is legitimate ✅ You can apply here
If you know any languages other than English, then this could further increase your chances to take on tests as I have seen tests submitted by companies in foreign (usually European) languages.
To be eligible for the mobile/tablet tests you will be asked to download a software called mobizen. What this software does is ‘mirror’ your device from your tablet device to your pc or mac.
So that is it for now.
So What did you Think of the Whatusersdo Review?
Have you used Whatusersdo before? Perhaps you reside outside from the said countries listed on the site and tried to apply. If so, did you get accepted? Please leave me your feedback.
