Frequently asked questions

How does ErliBird Beta Testing work?

ErliBird Beta Testing packages are robust tests that provide high quality engagement and feedback over a period of days days or weeks. Our tests are ideal for testing scenarios that are typically impossible to test with traditional user testing services: test processes that require testing over multiple days, real-world interaction, communication with testers, bug reports, etc.

For each test, we recruit testers that match your target audience. You get robust engagement, and high quality feedback, bug reports, and tester communication.

What are the ideal use cases? What sort of things can we test?

Our Beta Testing packages are ideal for collecting UX feedback for test processes that require multiple days, interaction in the real-world, or specific schedules. Here are some great examples:

Running app: Get UX feedback after users complete one or more runs over the course of 1-week.

Online doctor app: Collect feedback and bugs after each user schedules and completes and online appointment over video with a practitioner.

Parking app: Rate sentiment after testers use the app to swap parking places with another user.

Multiplayer game: Set a specific date and time for users to join a multiplayer game and later provide feedback.

App Algorithms for news app: Track which news each user reads in the morning to optimize the AI.

Any many, many more. Contact us to inquire about your use case.

How do you recruit testers?

The ErliBird community includes over 100,000 beta testers globally with access to millions more through partner networks. For each test, we recruit targeted testers that match your demographic requirements and pass a custom screening survey.

Our tester community includes a wide variety of people accross every demographic and interest group. The one common thread is that our users love to test and help improve new technology products. We keep high quality testers in our community by providing rewards and incentives for great feedback, typically in the range of $10-$15 for 30 minutes of active testing.

Since our inception 4+ years ago, we've grown our tester community largely organically and through referrals from other testers, but also through marketing and tester outreach efforts.

Do you guarantee quality engagement?

Yes, we do!

In fact, for each test we typically recruit 25%+ the participants needed to ensure we meet our promises, because we know some users may drop off during the test.

You have the ability to reject any test submission that is not high quality. If we don't meet our guarantees, we'll recruit more testers for free or refund the difference.

Who are the testers?

Our community includes a very wide variety of demographics, interests, and abilities: Professionals, students, moms / dads, developers, and everything in between.

The common thread is that all our testers are passionate about providing feedback and playing a meaningful role to help launch better, more successful products! In exchange for their quality feedback, each tester earns a reward. We coordinate incentives, so you don't have to (the cost is already included in our pricing).

What is the quality of the feedback?

Quality is our primary focus and we guarantee it. If you aren't happy, simply reject any user that hasn't provided quality feedback and we'll replace or refund them.

The effort and quality of ErliBird testers is well known in the industry and is often dramatically more robust than that received through traditional market research providers.

We’ve helped over 1,500 companies launch better products.
