Continue reading to learn How I Earn $200+ Dollars Cash per Month Testing Websites and Apps from Home…. in my pajamas. 😉
Have you ever wanted to have a say in the design and functionality of your favorite websites or apps? Well, you can–and you get paid CASH for your opinions!
There are several companies that will pay you for 5 to 20 minutes of your time– to provide an honest review about their design and ease-of-use as a website or app tester. The best part? It’s a super easy way to make extra cash from home!
Why is there a need for website testers online?
The main reason for Website Testers aka. User Testers is to improve online experiences for the everyday internet user.
In order to do this, a company will hire real people, like you, to test out new and existing websites and apps so that website owners, coders, and designers can see and fix any obstacles that people experience coming to their site.
As a Website Tester, your job is to make sure websites are very easy to navigate. This is a major struggle for me as a website owner, to make sure my visitors can find the content they are looking for.
When building and designing your own blog, it’s always nice to have a fresh perspective from a new visitor on how your site looks and how easy it is to find what you’re looking for.
What are the requirements for these jobs?
You will need to be fairly internet savvy and speak fluent English. You will also need some basic equipment like a computer with a microphone, high-speed internet connection, and an updated web browser.
Most tests take between 5 – 20 minutes to complete and pay an average of $10 per test.
Pretty good pay for such a short amount of time right?!
No– you’re not going to get rich being a Website Tester… But for a little extra income at the end of the month, this is easy and takes very little of your precious time. 🙂

Is Website Testing the Right Job for You?
Not everyone will enjoy website testing.
The work can be tedious and you have to be meticulous about following instructions so you can complete tests accurately. But, if you’re interested in improving how websites look and work, it can be fun to have a hand in it!
With tests averaging about 15 minutes, the work is extremely flexible to fit in with a variety of schedules. If you want to make some extra money, website testing is an interesting way to do it. And you can make MORE than my $200 a month if you work more often and with multiple companies!
