Is UserTesting a Scam? – They Pay Honestly $10 Per Test But…

One of my friends introduces UserTesting to me around 8 months ago. He explained it’s a great way to get feedback of your website for free and earn also some extra money if you want. He has earned hundreds of dollars through UserTesting so I knew it really works.

So the answer to the title’s question, “Is UserTesting a Scam?”: no, it’s not a scam. However, that’s not the whole story. I signed up to their website also myself several months ago and guess how much I have earned? I will explain further in this article.

Spend the next 2 minutes with me and I’ll show whether UserTesting is worth it or not. I’ll mainly analyze UserTesting from the money-making point of view but I’ll also share a few words about getting feedback for your websites through their platform.

UserTesting Review


Name: UserTesting

Founded: In 2007 by Darrell Benatar and Dave Garr

Cost: Free to Use

Type: Go to Websites and Give Feedback.

Short Review: UserTesting is a reliable company and a platform that has operated already for more than 10 years. You can earn some pocket money but nothing significant. If they would have more tests available, the earning potential could be quite good.

However, in this situation when they are offering only very small amount of tests, it’s not worth it. I recommend taking a look at My #1 Recommended work from home opportunity if you are looking for ways to earn money online.

UserTesting homepage has a professional and a simple layout.

What Is UserTesting?

UserTesting is a website that provides feedback for companies for their websites, mobile apps and for other things. Real people like you and me can use it to earn some extra cash while giving feedback for those companies.

The company asks you specific questions to understand how people see their websites. It helps them to improve sales, user experience and the business in general.

The idea of UserTesting came in 2007 for a co-founder Dave Garr when he realized other people see things that he doesn’t necessarily notice on his websites. I have also noticed the same phenomenon. I may be blind for some things on my website but when I get feedback from friends and mentors, it always helps me to improve my site.

More than 1 million feedback videos have been done through UserTesting.com for more than 34,000 companies. So, we are talking about a big thing here.

is usertesting a scam

Big companies are using UserTesting to improve their websites.

How to Get Started with User Testing?

Naturally, you need to sign up first and create your account. After a few minutes, User Testing will send an email with instructions how you will get started.

First, you you need to go through a test video which takes around 10 minutes to accomplish. You will see the instructions on your screen and you just need to follow those instructions.

The test that I needed to accomplish was go through their example website and search something there. While I was searching, they want me to speak everything out loud what I am seeing and what are my impressions about the website.

When you have finished the task and clicked, “Done” they’ll take a look at your video and approve it. If you didn’t follow their instructions and they must disapprove you. That’s what happened to me because I didn’t exactly their instructions. They sent me an invitation to the same test again and this time it took only 4 minutes to accomplish.

This time I got approved and was ready to start earning money.

Earning Money with UserTesting

After creating your account and passing the user test you start getting offers for user tests. However, don’t be surprised if you don’t get them right away. They recommend keeping the UserTesting website open in your browser so you notice it right away when they have a test available. It will show up in your dashboard like this:

An example of an available test.

Only the fastest persons will be able to take the test and earn money. Once I hesitated for 10 minutes and the test was already gone. Usually, they last longer. Anyway, The fast fish eats the slow fish if you don’t check the dashboard regularly, you will not get opportunities for new tests.

There is also another obstacle to overcome before you can start answering the test and earning money. If you are familiar with online surveys you know this feeling. You have a few screening questions before starting the survey. They ask these questions to define that they belong in the right target group. I took a few screenings tests and never got qualified. I never belonged into the right group.

If you get approved, they’ll pay you quite well. The normal reward is $10 for a feedback sessions that lasts up to 20 minutes. They also have sometimes shorter tests that last 3-5 minutes and pay $3.

The problem is that they have so few tests available. I kept UserTesting dashboard open for around 15 hours in total during 2 consecutive days and I didn’t get qualified to any test. Afterwards they have sometimes sent me invitations to tests but I haven’t really bothered. The earning potential isn’t very good so I think it’s not worth the hassle. Another challenge is that you can’t earn passive income through their website.

I always prefer passive income opportunities rather than things where I need to work actively in order to earn money. Passive income piles up and grows like a snowball in the long run. My goal is to reach $10,000/month passive income mark in the next year 2018. It wouldn’t be possible in a typical 9-5 job but it’s possible with affiliate marketing.

If they would have a constant flow of new tests, I would probably do them every now and then when I feel like it. But in this situation I don’t bother to hunt for tests because it would take so much time and the hourly salary wouldn’t be good. If you are wondering what kind of questions they ask during the test, it’s something like this:

  1. What is your first impression when you come to this website?
  2. Search xxx-thing on this website.
  3. What do you think this website is about?
  4. etc.

I also want to share what other people are feeling about UserTesting and how much money they are earning.

UserTesting Reviews and Complaints 

There are 17 UserTesting reviews on SiteJabber and the average rating is only 1,7 stars out of 5. I was surprised to see this low rating after hearing positive experiences of UserTesting from a few other people. Also on Glassdoor they had received quite positive reviews from their employees with an average rating 3,7 stars out of 5.

Let’s have a look at a few examples what people are writing about UserTesting. It seems that they have pretty similar experiences like I had.

Toni thought also UserTesting would be a better opportunity that it really is.

Michael G. has been paid by UserTesting but also doesn’t like that he always needs to wait for new test opportunities.

It seems that everyone is talking about the same subject that I noticed. There just aren’t enough tests available for earning good money on this website.

UserTesting Support

In my experience UserTesting has a high-quality support. You can contact them by phone (during office hours), by email or by through their live chat. In the other words, you get quickly the response you need. Based on Glassdoor reviews their employees are overall satisfied with the job which ensures positive responses.

Conclusion – Is UserTesting Worth It?

The idea of UserTesting is great. Website owners need feedback to improve their sites and user experience and millions of people are looking for ways to earn extra income online. In the other words, there is a great need for platforms like UserTesting.

On the other hand, their service is not the cheapest one. It costs $49 per 15-20 minute test for the company who orders it. I bet I could find tons of people to do a 20-minute feedback for my website for much cheaper price. Let’s say, for $15 or even for $10. The question arises, why would I use UserTesting? Of course, it makes it easy. I just give them the money and they do the “dirty job” to find testers. However, the service is still quite expensive.

As a money-making opportunity UserTesting certainly is not the best of the best. You can earn some dollars every now and then but my and other people’s experience has showed that there aren’t so many tests available.

Overall, I wouldn’t recommend it for you. There are way better money-making opportunities on the Internet. My #1 recommendation especially for beginners is Wealthy Affiliate. Their training taught me how to make money online even though I didn’t have any experience of affiliate marketing before that.

I am still a part of their community because their awesome tools help me to generate more income online. I also provide 1-on-1 support and mentoring for all people who join Wealthy Affiliate through YourOnlineRevenue.com. Did I mention it’s completely free to get started? 😉

    I am currently using Usertesting and I can say that it is a great way of having an extra income just by talking for about 20-30 minutes. But before I was able to be a tester I had to repeat the sample test again and again because I kept on failing.

    Also, the test come and go pretty easily so you really have to keep an eye on your laptop. It’s great if you’re constantly using it but if you a going out, it might not be very efficient. The test are not that many and there are tests that I am not qualified in so I had to decline those.

    • Roope Kiuttu November 3, 2017 at 7:15 am - Reply

      Yes. As I’ve pointed out in the texts before, UserTesting may be worth it if you are living in the Philippines. But there are websites that pay much more than UserTesting so I don’t use it myself.

  2. ryan colcol October 28, 2017 at 6:19 am - Reply

    Yes, I have tried UserTesting myself and had that exact experience. They asked me to do the practice test twice and then never gave me a test once approved. I didn’t feel like waiting around any longer so I moved on. I haven’t used any similar site since then. I’m still searching for the best ways to make money online.

  3. Gemmuel October 24, 2017 at 11:08 am - Reply

    What i think about UserTesting is that somehow it is still a good way to earn extra cash. It might not be that much but somehow, again $10-$15 dollars can’t be picked in the streets as easy compared for usertester correct? They might not give us that much but somehow they do all the dirty work and simple give us money 😀

    • Roope Kiuttu October 24, 2017 at 7:29 pm - Reply

      Did you read the whole article and comments about UserTesting? I think that begging on the street would be way more profitable than earning money with this site 😉

      • Amy Collins November 1, 2017 at 4:21 am - Reply

        Idk about that. When I was a bum some days it was a struggle to make $7 all day, and I think the highest we ever got was like $110. $110 is a bit of a stretch on a single day from online, but I’ve definitely had some days I’ve made more than 7. LOL

  4. rfismad October 21, 2017 at 3:09 am - Reply

    I’ve only done 2 tests and was paid for both. The catch is that you have to put in a bit of effort when recording. It was taking me 25 – 30 minutes to do a single site giving as much detail as I thought they wanted. Also there’s not usually many offers available to me.

    • Roope Kiuttu October 21, 2017 at 2:39 pm - Reply

      I’m happy to hear that you’ve been paid. I think UserTesting would be an interesting side job for many people if there would be more tests available. At this situation when there are so few tests, it’s not really worth it waiting and seeking for them in my opinion.

  5. melvs October 20, 2017 at 2:11 pm - Reply

    I also joined UserTesting and I also did not follow the instructions and also used all the time limit. So they have declined me. I have not reapplied. So while learning from Wealthy Affiliate. I might try it one more time within a week.

    • Roope Kiuttu October 21, 2017 at 2:54 pm - Reply

      I see. I am still approved on UserTesting but I really don’t bother spending any time on their site because there’s so small amount of tests available.

      It would change your life if you go through Wealthy Affiliate training and put it into action. At least it changed my life. I was able to quit my 9-5 job and make money online.

      However, I want to remind that it’s not a get rich quick scheme. You can make big money but it requires effort and persistence.

  6. jemuelterrado October 19, 2017 at 3:42 pm - Reply

    Thank you by the way for this review Mr. Roope, 10 dollars is equal to 500 Pesos here in Philippines where in it can afford to buy foods and anything and it is a big amount to us.

    This is a great opportunity that must not be wasted. The only problem to me is the processing of uploading those recorded files cause i only have a slow connection in my own. Most of the time it interrupts me and fails the tasks.

    • Roope Kiuttu October 19, 2017 at 6:48 pm - Reply

      Yes $10 certainly has more value in the Philippines than in the U.S. or in Europe, for example.

      You can certainly sign up to UserTesting and try it out. However, I think that slow Internet connection that falls sometimes can really prevent working with them.

  7. HazelDJ October 19, 2017 at 3:35 pm - Reply

    User Testing is best when it comes to the price per task that is paid. It is $10! I have registered to this site hoping that I could earn more money than any other sites that I have joined, But I noticed that there was no task available after I registered. I kept on checking my account from time to time, until such time, I realized that this site has only few tasks to thousands of members.You are lucky if you get one.

    • Roope Kiuttu October 19, 2017 at 6:55 pm - Reply

      That’s true. I had their dashboard open once for 15 hours and didn’t get the single tasks. Sometimes they have tasks but when you try to answer it they say it’s already gone or it’s not available in your location.

  8. Saintmommajo October 19, 2017 at 3:29 pm - Reply

    What I don’t like about User Testing is the low prices. Your input is worth way more than 10-15 dollars. These companies are really making strides with these results. Also, the opportunities are few and far between. It’s quite annoying because it’s marketed as an option to make a decent amount of money. I used to try to chase the user testing opps but now its just a waste of time to me.

    • Roope Kiuttu October 19, 2017 at 6:56 pm - Reply

      Yeah, most make money online sites advertise, “Earn good money easily. Sign up today!” But the reality is that the earning potential on those sites really isn’t that good.

      It’s possible to make big money online but it requires learning, work and persistence. Sites like UserTesting would never pay much because anyone can do that kind of job.

  9. AmieBotella October 19, 2017 at 6:55 am - Reply

    I was about to try this because someone did introduce this to me and he has been paid by User Testing. I think with this review, telling us that this is not a scam is still worth a try. I think most beginners who need to see what the online market world can offer can learn from these sites and a lot more. From where I live, where having a basic pay of $1, more or less, is a big thing to earn $10 for a 20-30 minute test.

    • Roope Kiuttu October 19, 2017 at 11:42 am - Reply

      You are right that earning $10 for a 20-30 minute test is good in most places of the world.

      However, the reality with UserTesting is different. The verification process takes 30-45 minutes and still you haven’t earn a single penny.

      Then you need to wait for new tests usually for a long time. Once you get a new test, most of them are available for a very targeted group.

      I am not saying UserTesting wouldn’t work. I’m just saying there are way better ways to earn money online.

  10. Ryan October 18, 2017 at 6:05 pm - Reply

    UserTesting is good especially for those who have no jobs because they can find easy money in this. All you have to do is to test their program if it runs properly and you can do the test in just a minute. I think, this is best help for those who are explorer and have basic about program and apps.

    • Roope Kiuttu October 18, 2017 at 6:50 pm - Reply

      Hmm… I think I must disagree with you. It takes more than a minute to finish their tests and usually they don’t even have anything available.

      Do you have personal experience of UserTesting?

  11. saygorem October 18, 2017 at 12:58 am - Reply

    Thanks to this post and topic. We are able to gauge the possibilities of User Testing website. You can definitely earn money but not that big and is limited by the availability of the tests. It is alright for me. I don’t greed money, I just want to earn as much as the chance given to me but I am contented in small earnings.

    • Roope Kiuttu October 18, 2017 at 3:55 pm - Reply

      I understand. 🙂

      If you are satisfied with small earnings, you would probably like big earnings as well, right?

      If you would like to earn more money online, I recommend checking out Wealthy Affiliate.

    I got paid by UserTesting once and that way back in July. Since then, I have not received any work from them more likely because they have signed up too many testers. They really pay and I can confirm that the company is not a scam. The only problem is that you don’t get a lot of work. I signed up last July and have only tested one website since then. Definitely not a stable source of online income.

    • Roope Kiuttu October 17, 2017 at 6:59 am - Reply

      Thanks for sharing your experience. It’s pretty similar like my and many other people’s experiences with UserTesting. I’ll just prefer other money-making opportunities.

  13. Heatman October 16, 2017 at 9:09 am - Reply

    I do think that the idea of UserTesting isn’t that bad, it helps the website to know the best possible way to improve on its services. There are only two hitches I find very uncomfortable with UserTesting and it’s their low number of test for prospective member to take and the price of $49 per 15 to 20 minutes test which doesn’t come up too often for people to take. This is definitely going to deter most people from taking up the task.

    • Roope Kiuttu October 16, 2017 at 12:54 pm - Reply

      Yeah, those two reasons really hinder from earning well on UserTesting. Otherwise, the website would be great and I could consider using myself also in the future.

    I’m going to try this later and I hope I can pass their the initial review. Thank You for placing this here and any tips you can recommend for the reviews?

    • Roope Kiuttu October 16, 2017 at 1:39 pm - Reply

      Just follow strictly their instructions and there shouldn’t be any problem. You also need to have a good microphone and a stable Internet connection so your reviews will be accepted.

  15. xhollo October 15, 2017 at 3:04 pm - Reply

    Well, the program is not that bad, if you weigh it in terms of fast payment, due to what I have heard though and your review just confirmed it. Because most of this sites don’t pay out fast, and on top of that their payment are not so great compared with this UserTesting.

    The only problem I think they have is the unavailability of jobs. But I think with time they will gain more ground and jobs will be available, don’t you think so?

    • Roope Kiuttu October 15, 2017 at 4:09 pm - Reply

      If there would be many jobs available, UserTesting wouldn’t be so bad like many other “online jobs”. Just like you said.

      However, I think that there are less jobs available nowadays than before. People who have used the website for a longer time than me say that the amount of jobs is decreasing. That’s probably because more and more people have found this website. There are always some people who are willing to do some work online for almost free.

    I first time saw this money making site on YouTube. I got an interest in this site because they pays you 10 dollar when you will visit a site and make an overview in it. It’s true that UserTesting pays you. But I think it is not enough to be a work for a living. But in some ways, it is a great help to me.

    • Roope Kiuttu October 15, 2017 at 11:57 am - Reply

      Have you used UserTesting yourself? How many tests you usually received for testing per day/week/month?

  17. jemuelterrado October 14, 2017 at 2:32 pm - Reply

    I know them well and they are legit. I watched it in youtube and this is such a very interesting site because they will pay you 10 dollars every 20 minutes after completing the task. I tried it already but i only have a slow internet connection and when it comes to uploading the video it always fails. My friend showed me the payout and it did.

    But of course everything is not easy because you need a time and effort and the payout depends also in your performance. You need also to have a better quality of recording audio. You need first to download their application to start recording a video and afrer you need to upload it. You really need a very strong internet connection to successfully complete the task.

    • Roope Kiuttu October 15, 2017 at 12:55 pm - Reply

      Yeah, $10 is a bigger money in the Philippines than here in Europe. That’s why UserTesting would be more interesting there. If you find a good place to upload videos on their site it could be worth it in the Philippines.

      However, I don’t recommend it for the long term. With affiliate marketing you could earn much more.

      • jemuelterrado October 27, 2017 at 7:16 pm - Reply

        It is the problem here in our country only selected areas are able to have a good strength of internet connection. If everything will be okay, the thing i will surely can say is more and more people will join to this kind of online job.

    Registering on UserTesting means that you should have variety of gadgets from different brands and models. It’s one of passive income though the offers are not not much for surveys. Testing applications took you so long, sometimes forever even if you know for yourself that you’ve done it perfectly. They should upgrade their system.

    • Roope Kiuttu October 12, 2017 at 7:34 am - Reply

      Thanks for sharing your opinion. Yes, you can use UserTesting with PC, tablet, and Smartphone. However, you don’t need all of them because you can do the tests that you want. But that reduces the number of available tests right away. Their price for clients is huge but the reward for testers isn’t that good. I believe they are making a nice profit.

  21. Luke Justice October 11, 2017 at 12:29 pm - Reply

    I consider UserTesting a sideline from my real job and it got me hooked where you can help other people sited improved and have criticize it. The only thing bother me is that some are getting rejected on their opinions. Opinions is what the main point of the UserTesting, am I right? So what’s the point of getting rejected?

    I know some don’t speak English very well, but the very thought of their mind is what important. Right now I can see how the test are lesser and lesser from the previous times. I’m not calling it a “scam” though, they are very consistent on the $10 pay.

    • Roope Kiuttu October 11, 2017 at 5:52 pm - Reply

      I think there may be several reasons for getting rejected:
      -slow Internet connection -> makes a review hard to follow
      -English speaking skills aren’t good enough
      -The person doesn’t exactly answer the questions
      etc.

      Yeah, many other people also mentioned that nowadays there aren’t as many tests as before. Maybe they have already so many testers?

    I think in as much as Usertesting pays, it is not worth wasting the whole hours just to earn money on it. I might not have the mind to use such to test feedbacks on my blog, if I had one, for it is going to take some hours which I would have been used to invest in other things. Yeah, there might be opportunities to earn there, but they are usually few.

    • Roope Kiuttu October 11, 2017 at 5:11 pm - Reply

      If you get tests on UserTesting, the payout would be quite okay. In 15-20 minutes you could earn $10. However, the challenge is that they don’t have tests available so it would take much more than 15-20 min to earn that $10. First of all, the sign up process took around 30 minutes. Then you need to spend time visiting their website and checking if there are new tests available. Not worth it.

    I had been a tester on this site for over 12 months. Once I first began the assessments were affordable and I acquired paid for each one I required. However following the first of this season they started to inform me that I did so not be eligible for the assessments quite a bit when I attempted to join up to consider them.

    Lately for days gone by 14 days now the customers who I’ve tested web sites for have been rejecting my screening and now I have already been told I no more qualify as a tester for User tests because of the bad ratings that I have already been given by the customers who put their websites on this website to be approved by consumer tester like me as well as others.

    I trust all that is said by the individuals who have been publishing their comments about Consumer Testing website. It appears that they don’t want to pay an individual testers for his or her views about web sites they are providing the testers to examine. I do nothing like having been informed that I’ll no longer get payment for my assessment of their website. Why do these folks think they have the to get our views opinions that they ask us to provide them free of charge. That’s not fair.

    • Roope Kiuttu October 11, 2017 at 10:43 am - Reply

      Yeah, some individuals had that experience they weren’t paid through UserTesting. Overall, the experience of testers has been very negative and it seems it’s not worth using their site as a money-making purpose.

  24. xobe October 11, 2017 at 4:43 am - Reply

    You are absolutely correct! User Testing pays for individual who will exert their efforts in giving feedback on whatever products or even services they used to test. The platform requires sample videos in order for them to determine if you will pass or fail. The amount they’ll pay you is depending on the quality you provided.

    Honestly speaking, I tried that program but I guess it’s not my luck in presenting sample video to their staff. In addition to this, make sure you have a established internet connection and quite background because it will affects your score in preparing you video.

    They’ll give you another chance if you fail once but if it will happen again, no more luck for you guys. i’m not 100% sure if they will entertain new emails for the same user because initially it will the platform will ask your email address identity. User Testing is a good one if you are looking for a long term investment.

      I would like to hear why do you think UserTesting is a long-term investment? In my eyes it’s only a short-term investment that can pay you something but if you want to earn real money you should do other things.

      It’s true what you said about the internet connection and the rating. In order to continue working with them as a tester you need to receive good ratings from feedback you give and have a stable internet connection that doesn’t cut during the test.

        I do agree with you it’s not a long-term investment. You can’t rely on it for your daily needs though they surely pay you, it’s just that you’ll get only a few bucks. I did sign up for it 6 months ago. After passing their practice test and got approved I had a couple of tests after that and was paid 10$ for each test. They were so consistent and everything was fine for weeks but for the following week, only a few tests were available until such time that none came. That’s the time that I decided to look for other sites where I can profit.

        So, it’s not really for long-term ’cause they don’t give you enough tests where you’ll get paid. They are inconsistent, also, they will not tell you how you’ll pass the tests or give you suggestions and inputs. Another thing is it’s not available in all countries ’cause when I traveled here in Qatar I can’t access my account anymore.

    I thought UserTesting is only a survey, never thought it also pays. Would you consider spare5 as user testing sir? I’ve tried doing this wherein you gotta box the cars and outline the shapes, it’s kinda hard though. Always easier said than done. And frankly, I always ended up failing, even thought I think what I did is right. Others told me they’re really earning here, based on reviews and some forums, but even though how hard I try and repeat procedures over and over again, I’m always failing.

      Hi Genesis,

      at the first glance Spare5 looks like an app that can pay you some money but the earning potential isn’t very high. However, I don’t know the app very well yet. I will take a closer look at it and write a detailed review.

      At the beginning, of my online business journey I was also a bit frustrated because other people were earning money but I wasn’t. And I thought I was doing the same things that they are doing. However, when I asked personalized feedback on Wealthy Affiliate I realized many things that I could have done differently. So often you just need to change your actions to get different results.

      Another thing is that other people who are doing the same thing you are doing may have done it for a longer time or they did something in the past which helps their current success.

      Don’t get discouraged by failures. They are only a part of a success journey. If you never give up, you can’t really fail. The difference between those who win and those who lose in life that winners gave a better meaning for their failures.

        Wow, what a beautiful words you got there sir. Thank you for encouraging me about online things. Actually I’ve also tried applying at Upwork, wherein you can get jobs and earn. Problem in which is that I things that I can do is very limited, yup I can speak English and I can type fast, but these are the resources that is very common.

        So when I tried in Upwork, my application was declined because of the number of personnel that they have already, not to mention a thousand of applicants per week. Somebody taught me how to be applied there with ease. Just apply for a job that others cannot do or hard to be done, then once approved, shift into your preferred work. I haven’t tried it though.

        Anyway, thank you sir for your encouragements. Hoping for our future endeavors be great. 🙂

          I understand your point. The competition is tough in writing jobs sometimes.

          I think if you focus on building your skills and learning new things, you’ll get more job opportunities on Upwork and also on other freelancing platforms.

          Some years ago I didn’t know anything about creating websites or affiliate marketing. But with the help of Weatlhy Affiliate training I was able to learn several new skills.

          In general, if you have great skills, people want to do business with you. And the great thing here is that you can always learn and upgrade skills. Decide something that you want to learn and put lots of effort into it. Then your skills will make room for you and you’ll see doors opening better than ever before. That’s what I believe and I’m focusing also myself.

    Yes, I have tried UserTesting myself and had that exact experience. They asked me to do the practice test twice and then never gave me a test once approved. I didn’t feel like waiting around any longer so I moved on. I haven’t used any similar site since then. I’m still searching for the best ways to make money online.

    I think I registered on UserTesting a while ago but I never bothered to go through with it. I just found it a weird having to talk about the websites out loud which is why I didn’t bother with it. Plus, the fact that the pay isn’t amazing for the work you do is a huge turn-off. There are just so much better earning opportunities out there that don’t require you to waste time talking out loud about a website lol.

      I understand your points. I found UserTesting idea interesting because I’m interested in website optimizations and the subject in general. That’s why I would have gladly given feedback for other websites if I could earn good money at the same time.

      But as you said the earning potential isn’t so great after all. And they don’t even have jobs available.
