What is a website tester?
A website tester is a regular user that provides feedback on website appearance and function. 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 become a website tester?
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.
