Introduction

If you are looking for creative ways to earn some supplemental income, you may find a barrage of options and ideas. However, did you know that YOU can earn money online, simply by testing out various websites and apps? I have been doing this on the side for the past two years. The art of testing out websites is within the Usability Experience/ UX arena. The purpose of this field is to provide companies with honest insight on whether their products are working as they should. In this series, I will be highlighting various Usability Testing (UX) websites and will let you know whether they are a legitimate money-making resource, or a plain ol’ scam. Today, I will be giving you my honest review of Userfeel.

What is Userfeel?


One of the first aspects of my honest review of Userfeel is to tell you more about the company. UserFeel is another platform that allows websites and apps to be assessed by everyday users in order to test their design, functionality, or products.

What kind of tests


One of the second aspects of my honest review of Userfeel is to tell you more about the types of tests offered. UserFeel offers various unmoderated testing opportunities. To illustrate, you may be qualified to take a timed test that asks you to perform a certain set of functions. For example, tests may ask you to ‘shop’ for a pair of shoes, or book a hotel stay. Other testing opportunities may require that you evaluate the design and functionality of a website (by pressing certain links or speaking about the aesthetics). The testing opportunities will vary.

Length of tests


The third aspect of my honest review of Userfeel is to tell you more about the testing duration. On average, expect to spend 10-20 minutes on a paid testing opportunity. Sometimes you may spend up to 30 minutes on UX tests. You can either take the tests on their free desktop/laptop application, or through your smartphone.

Testing rate


The fourth aspect of my honest review of Userfeel is regarding the payment. All Userfeel tests pay $10usd per examination. You receive payment after via PayPal or Amazon Gift Cards. Payment is typically distributed approximately one week after a successfully completed test.

Stipulations


The fifth aspect of my honest review of Userfeel is regarding the platforms testing stipulations. First, you must apply and take the (unpaid) qualification test to become an approved paid tester with the platform. The review process takes 7-15 days. Furthermore, all exams get rated. To illustrate, the more thorough you are in your testing review, the higher your ratings will be. It is also important to note that once you do pass the initial qualification test, you will have the optional opportunity to evaluate adult websites.

Advantages


The sixth aspect of my honest review of Userfeel is about the platform’s advantages. One of the first advantages is the flexible schedule I can have. I do not need to commit to a set of weekly or daily hours, to qualify for any paid testing opportunities. Another benefit I have the freedom to work from home or in any other quiet environment. The third advantage is that I can get paid to be as opinionated as I like (this is the perfect platforms for those who like to speak their mind). Plus, the fact that Userfeel pays well is another incentive.

Disadvantages

I cannot state my honest review of Userfeel without addressing its disadvantages. The main setback of the platform are the sporadic testing opportunities. There is no guarantee that you may receive any qualifiable testing opportunities on a daily or weekly basis. The opportunities can appear at any point of the day. Moreso, just because you may see an opportunity appear on your dashboard does not mean you will qualify to assess. What is worse is that low quality tests can result in lower reviews, and therefore fewer paid opportunities. This can all become very frustrating.

Takeaways


The final aspect of my honest review of Userfeel is to share some key takeaways. So far, since joining the platform, I have earned $30. This means, that up to this day, I have successfully completed three tests. While $30 does not make me rich, this extra cash has helped me pay for gas. And hey! I will take it. I want to conclude by sharing some tips:

  • Once you apply and (hopefully pass!) the qualification test, hit the ‘refresh’ tab on the Userfeel app throughout the day-you never know if you will find a test you qualify for!
  • When doing tests, speak ALL your thoughts aloud, positive, or negative.
  • Be diligent in following testing directions. Being meticulous matters.
  • Come into this platform with realistic income expectations-since qualifiable testing opportunities are sporadic, expect that any income revied is strictly supplemental. Hey, you never know, your groceries (or gas money!) could be covered by doing these tests!

If you are applying for testing opportunities with this mindset that Userfeel is best for earning SUPPLEMENTAL income, then yes! I do recommend the platform. In fact, if you want to make more money with usability tests, simultaneously test with other platforms. Go ahead and give Userfeel a try and let me know what you think!
