Testing can be very rewarding! Guest blogger and tester Ian Douglas explains..

Why getting paid to help people improve their websites can be rewarding.

What Users Do

I was suffering from Writers Block several days ago and, while browsing the internet for inspiration, I came across a website offering quite an interesting service. The company is called What Users Do.

How often have you gone to a website and become so frustrated with it because it is so difficult to use? Perhaps it was an online shop and you found it difficult to find how to add an item to your Shopping Basket, or couldn’t find how to contact their Customer Services Department?

What Users Do offers a service where website owners can hire them to analyze their websites using a panel of home-based Testers.

Helping people improve their websites seemed quite an interesting and rewarding idea so I was pleasantly surprised to discover that they are currently recruiting new Testers for their panel. I signed up and am loving it! If this is something that interests you then why join me and sign up yourself? After completing a simple signup form you are required to pass a simple selection test. After passing the test they will pay you up to £8/€/US$ per test you complete.

You need to install software on your computer (once only) which you use to record your voice and your screen while you examine the clients website following the step-by-step instructions they have given. You don’t need any technical knowledge; just remember to speak your honest, common sense, thoughts and opinions as you follow their instructions. Once you have completed your analysis your comments are automatically uploaded and, if the client is happy with your analysis your account is credited the payment. What Users Do will then pay you by PayPal on the 25th of the following month.

I am loving it! If you feel that you would like to join me in earning money from your own home carrying out interesting tests helping people improve their websites then CLICK HERE.
