Enroll- A Fun Usability Site

Enroll usability testing review

Enroll is a part of ZURB,  a product design company located in Campbell, California. ZURB uses Enrollapp.com to get feedback from true website users like you and I on their product designs. I signed up with Enroll after being contacted by a team member who informed me they are currently seeking new testers because their "demand for user testers is surpassing the number of testers [they] have".   Money to be Made at Enroll I find it explained best by the EnrollApp Product Marketer himself: Tests are extremely quick, sometimes only take a few seconds to take.User Testers earn 10 cents per test, and there are monetary bonuses for earning badges that range from 50 cents to a dollar. On occasion users will be asked to complete longer tests in the form of a prototype, these testers are rewarded $2.00 per test. How to Cash Out Your Earnings Payments are made using PayPal. Your Enroll balance pays out automatically every month (appears to be around the 10th) for any accounts … [Read more...]

Analysia Website Usability Testing

Analysia

Analysia is a website usability testing company that pays people to test websites. There is not much being said about them around the net, which in a way could be a good thing. If there was something bad to be said it is almost a sure thing someone would say it. So, if you have any experience with Analysia or know someone who does, let us know! That being said, most of this information is from their website.   What Does the Work at Analysia Involve? Website usability testing companies all work a little differently. Analysia is fairly simple from all appearances. Testers are given instructions and expected to read them and then complete the assigned task on the site to be tested. Each session is recorded, and the screen and audio are saved. Testers are emailed with available tasks that they are eligible to accept.   Are There Special Skill or Equipment Requirements? The only equipment needed is a computer with internet access and a microphone. Analysia accepts … [Read more...]

Review of Feedback Army

Feedback-Army

In the past, I have used several different Usability Testing sites to bring in more income. Feedback Army is a lot similar to sites like TryMyUi.com and Userlytics.  This site is a little different because you review websites via Mechanical Turk. If you are not familiar with what Mechanical Turk or Mturk is then visit the recent review Erica Martin posted. Or in short, Mturk  is a place where companies can post web based tasks that can be completed from any remote location with internet access. Usability Testing is generally when you are given a task to visit a website and express your thoughts on the ease of browsing through the site. You are generally expected to give your first impressions by speaking out loud while being recorded using your computer's microphone and for some companies, your webcam.   Is this easy to sign up? Honestly? As I’m looking around Feedback Army’s website it’s not all that clear. To find out more information about becoming a reviewer, you have to … [Read more...]

Make Money Online with What Users Do

What Users Do

In the past I have talked about usability testing sites like What Users Do. These are a quick and fun way to make extra money online. So what is What Users Do? What Users Do is based out of the UK but accept people from other countries, like the US to help gauge the usability of websites. Basically businesses contact usability sites like this to find out what every day users think of their site:: how easy is it to use, what is confusing , appealing or non appealing. If a site is wondering why they are having a lot of visitors but not making sales on their products, hiring What Users Do is a great way to get an insight to the average user experience.   In order to work with Usability Sites you will need high-speed internet and a microphone. The microphone is important because as you browse the site, you will be asked to speak your thoughts aloud. This allows for honest and raw feedback.  Some people feel awkward speaking to a microphone as they visit a site, but … [Read more...]
