Amsterdam; Netherlands; 09 December 2019 – The arrival of Swiss consumer testing expert, TestingTime in Netherlands will give up to 30 000 Dutch citizens the chance to earn cash providing feedback on brands and services over the next year.
The reality is that brands are very interested in consumer comments and feedback, which helps them to improve and build positive customer experiences in the future. TestingTime helps brands to connect directly to their target market and gives testers the chance to make extra money while having fun discovering a wide range of products and services.
Launched in Zurich in 2014, TestingTime was created to provide qualified testers to market well-designed products that are easy to use.
Reto Läemmler, co-founder of TestingTime, says,
“Businesses all face the same problem. Because they are not themselves (or very rarely) users of their own products or services, they are often disconnected from consumer expectations.”
This gap can have very costly consequences: flop launching a product, loss of customers in favour of competition, etc. To understand what works or doesn’t, they need qualitative feedback from humans, which can be time-consuming.
This is where TestingTime has established itself as a powerful tool for brands, thanks to its know-how and its wide European panel bringing together more than 370,000+ testers.
Currently, more than 700 companies in 22 countries trust TestingTime including;
Zalando, Mediamonks, Logitech, Mercedes and more.”
Since launching to the Dutch market this Autumn, TestingTime has already paid over 500 people to participate in studies and plans to multiply its user-base by 10 over the next few months, with a goal of reaching 30,000 testers by the end of next year.”
Becoming a tester
Being a paid tester is highly accessible and can be a fun and rewarding experience that can be done from the comfort of your own home or allow you to switch up your routine and visit new and exciting places for interviews.
TestingTime differs from competitors in several ways:
• They have the highest compensation on the market
• They organize dozens of tests every week,
• They propose an advantageous referral system between users, up to 25€ per person referred.
• Last, they pay in cash within 10 days direct to testers’ bank account.
There is no typical profile for a tester since TestingTime offers dozens of tests every week on everyday products and services from food to travel, video games, banking insurance, real estate, cars, fashion and beauty products. This means anyone, regardless of age, level of education or computer skills, everyone can participate.
“80% of the tests are conducted face-to-face (mainly in Amsterdam) and are paid € 50 per hour or more (depending on the profiles requested by customers). But, to offer more flexibility, we also offer remote tests paid € 20 per half hour. As a bonus, a smart referral system allows testers to earn extra money each time they sponsor a friend (10€ per testers).”
To become a tester and start earning money, is as simple as registering on the TestingTime website and answering a quick questionnaire (less than 3 minutes) about your consumption habits. As soon as your profile corresponds to a study, you receive an invitation by email.
If your profile qualifies, you are invited by the recruiting team that will share the final details.
TestingTime offers testers the chance to influence the future of the products they use every day.
