$10 for your Thoughts: Online User Testing

In my real job, I am a User Experience designer. Ever feel really frustrated with a website or can’t figure out how to do something? My job is to make sure that never happens, kind of like a superhero. One of the tools we use is Usertesting.com, where we get videos of real people speaking their thoughts as they use websites.

Usertesting.com is great because it connects companies with real life, breathing, complaining users. They do this by screen capturing their curated pool of people using your site! They share their feels and behaviors, whether we like it or not. It is an invaluable tool when decides what sucks on a website.

I am sure you’re asking yourself, why the heck am I talking this, when there was the promise of $10!!

Those people who are talking about our sites are compensated decently. By “decently,” I’m not talking big dollars, but I am talking about $10 for less than 15 minutes of your time. Which, depending on your level of hustling, isn’t bad. What separates this from other side hustles is that anyone qualifies to do it.

It is pretty easy to get started.

You will have to fill out some demographic information, so people using this tool know who is being tested. Then you will complete a sample test to make sure you don’t suck. You’ll also need a computer, an internet connection, a microphone (built in works!), and the ability to download their testing software.

It is a totally simple way to make some extra money to throw at some debt!
