I'd use something like this.
Thanks Cliff! Do you mean as someone looking to recruit user testers, or as someone looking to earn rewards for participating in user testing?
Any other feedback you have would be wonderful :)
The site offers rewards, but I think since they are offering actual substance for someone to test, the things being tested are probably of actual value. I think it'd be great to put my experience and knowledge to use by participating in the user testing.
Would love any feedback you have or if it's something you'd be interested in using to recruit people for usability tests or customer interviews with.
I'm just curious. What are the differences between Usertesting.com and Koalatesters.com (other than the pay-out difference)?
Also, how long has Koalatesters.com been up and running? How much beta testing and work was done?
Note: this is not at all meant to be a dig or a why'd-you-build-this type of comment / question.
Thanks for the question(s) Jeremy! I'll answer your easy question first: today is literally the first day of Koala being out in the wild. As such, there is a ton of testing and design work to be done. This is very much the "MVP", and we hope to iterate and improve from here.
As for the difference between UT.com and Koala, UT is all about remote unmoderated testing. You create a series of questions, tell UT.com what kind of participants you want, and you end up getting a bunch of videos of those participants working through the questions you outlined. Koala is for finding participants for any kind of research you're doing. So whether you need people to come into your offices to test out something you've been working on, send someone a link to an invision prototype and get their thoughts on it via the phone, etc etc, Koala is for recruiting those research participants. How you choose to conduct that research is up to you. Make sense?
Great explanation, Griffin. That actually explains everything very well. Koala seems to be a much more "custom" and in-depth experience. Each test seems to be more highly tailored to the clients' precise needs. I like it! Wishing you guys the best of luck. I just signed up to be a tester. Would love to see how everything works!
