Even after building a website with intention, as web designers we can easily become blind to our own work and not know exactly how users will feel about or use a website we have built.
This is where website testing comes in. Website owners and even web designers themselves will pay users to test their website and give them valuable feedback to improve the website.
This feedback results in improved conversion (think more money) for these website owners.
As a web designer you have a lot of knowledge that can be very beneficial to these website designers. Here you'll find 9 websites that pay you to test websites.
