That does sound cool, right?
Participating in usability tests, in general, will not generate an income you can live from. It is, however, a fun and easy side gig that will get you extra pocket money.
And besides being able to speak your thoughts out loud, mostly in English, there are no extra skills required.
IntelliZoom has a very friendly and easy registration process. Sign up with your e-mail address, confirm it, and complete some basic profile questions.
You do need to be at least 18 years old and will have to pass a qualifying test after signing up before you can start participating.
It is not hard and actually, it is more of a guide on how to take tests after you get approved.
How tests and reviews work
A typical test, or study as IntelliZoom calls it, will take you 10 to 20 minutes and consists of some tasks you will need to perform.
Often, a task will come down to finding an item or product on a (mockup) website. These tasks are meant to give the companies that are testing their designs insights on real user behavior.
It does not matter if you succeed in your task. In fact, whether you succeed or not, just performing the task will give the best feedback to the companies.
You will need a computer, tablet or smartphone, and an internet connection of course.
Your screen and/or voice are recorded during the test, which is why you need to download the free UserZoom’s eCertified testing software.
What type of tests are there
There are different types of studies. Some will require you to just click through designs, some will be more focused on your feedback.
The type of task will determine how much it is worth. Some will pay 2 dollars, but typical thinking out loud videos will pay an average of 10 dollars.
Intellizoom uses PayPal to pay you.
If you sign up to test and review with IntelliZoom you can expect a few tests per week, but it is strongly dependent on a number of factors, including demographics.
