Many moms may find that they do not have the time for a work at home job or business but many families DO find that they need some extra cash from time to time. Did you know you can get paid for website testing? It is one of several ways that you can learn how to make extra cash from home.
You do not have to be a professional website designer or even have advanced technological skills. The companies are wanting feedback from regular internet users just like you. As long as you have basic internet and computer skills and understand how a basic website should function then this is a great way to earn some extra cash.
What is a website tester?
A website tester is a regular user that provides feedback on website appearance and function. To get paid for website testing you walk through a test of a website using a microphone on your computer providing feedback along the way on your first impressions, website loading speed, impression of website graphics, and general functionality. Website owners are basically paying for your feedback. Sometimes you will be asked to find specific items on the website to test how easily they can be found by a regular user. Most tests take between ten to fifteen minutes. Some of the websites listed below also allow users to provide feedback on apps. Pay for website testing ranges between $8 to $12 per test.
How do I get paid for website testing?
Users must already have their own computer with either a microphone or web cam and have high speed internet access. Most companies only require a simple sign-up to become a tester. A few companies require you to walk through a sample test to see how well you do providing feedback. This will determine if you receive testing opportunities from them. They will usually ask for some demographic information so that they can match website owners with the demographic most closely matched to their users. You will receive emails when you are a match for a website test. Some companies have an abundance of website testers signed up so you may want to consider signing up with many of the companies below to increase how much work you can receive as a website tester.
