The Importance of Your MESH01 Tester Profile

It’s no secret that the best path to being selected to test a product on MESH01 is to make your profile stand out! But how, exactly, can you do that? Here are some of the most impactful updates and additions you can make to your MESH01 tester profile to help brands find you:

  • Smile! Make sure you have a profile picture. A picture is worth a thousand words and brands love getting a real feel for who they are selecting to participate in their product test.
  • Tell us about yourself, then tell us a little more. Be sure to go beyond your basic profile requirements. Utilize your Profile Surveys to communicate what makes you, you! After all, most brands create products with a very specific idea of their customer in mind. Give them the chance to see that that customer is you!
  • Keep your profile up to date. From your address to your activities and sizing, it’s essential to make sure your profile is an accurate and current representation of you.

Keeping up with these areas of your profile will help paint a clear and exciting picture of you as a product tester and customer. This is a critical component of the brand/tester fit.

What Makes a Great Tester

There are a lot of factors that go into being a great product tester. We’ve made your research a bit easier. We’ve narrowed down some of the most important parts of sharing your customer voice during the product development stage.

  • Honesty: Brands value your honesty when testing. Don’t worry, feelings won’t be hurt if you don’t love a product. That’s the exact feedback they might be searching for! Brands know their current customers, while sometimes vocal in a constructive way, are most likely loyal fans (and sometimes this voice should be part of the feedback mix). Instead, many brands look to MESH01 testers for honest, constructive feedback to make their products and product experiences even better. So tell them what you really think and how you really feel!
  • Attention to Detail: Product research and testing is such a critical phase in the development process that requires high quality, detailed and relevant feedback so brands can make changes to their product that will ensure its success in the market. By providing all the feedback and detail you want to share, in the form of survey response, product performance zone feedback, and activity logs, you are adding valuable data to a critical stage in the product development process.
  • Reliability: Being mindful of timing and fully completing test requirements on those test timelines plays a huge role. In an effort to bring on-trend products to market, brands work with certain deadlines. These deadlines are often accelerated to bring on-trend products to market as fast as high-quality product development can allow! Working together and meeting deadlines according to a test design and timeline will make the testing experience much more seamless for everybody.
  • Dedication: Another great benefit is testing in your natural environment, do not hesitate to bring the product fully into your life. We encourage you to test in your kitchen, at the jobsite, on a hike, or on the playing field–wherever use of the product is most applicable and appropriate. This only enables you to give genuine, accurate feedback about how well the product met or didn’t meet your expectations, and provides brands with valuable information they can’t generate in the lab.

Our brands expect our community to provides exceptional feedback. With this considered, it does not take away from the extraordinary input and participation we receive from them. Nor does not take away from the fantastic experience our testers face while helping brands create excellent products. As a tester, you test products that fit your lifestyle and areas of expertise. Generally, making it easy to incorporate new products into your lives. Most importantly, also give proper feedback on how to improve them!

What to Expect as a MESH01 Tester

It’s an exciting and special opportunity when you’re selected to participate in product test. If you participate, you’ll often be seeing a product before the rest of the world does. Above all, you also be ensuring that countless others receive a quality product that meets or exceeds their expectations. That’s why it is essential to understand that becoming a product tester is all about being the right fit at the right time.

You’re part of a 50,000+ product tester community that is growing daily, and brands search for the best testers for their concepts and prototypes. And a brand looking to test a running shoe wouldn’t select someone who doesn’t run, right? When invited to or chosen for a concept test or product test, it means that your profile fits the target audience criteria for that product. The frequency of this test/tester fit depends on many factors, including your sizing, level of participation, location and climate, and sometimes much more. But don’t let the idea of specific tester needs discourage you. You’ll likely be a good fit for something, so just be sure to keep your profile up to date!

MESH01 is a flexible product testing platform that supports various use cases and test designs from product concept testing to final prototype or sample tests. Not only can different brands test differently, but the same brand may have many different types of tests that they run. When a good test/tester fit happens for you, brands will often be very clear about their specific testing needs before they finalize their tester “roster”. This gives you a final opportunity to evaluate the test requirements and make a decision about whether or not the test is right for you. So, expect from them clarity on the test requirements, and in return for your participation, keeping the tested product (before it even hits the market) is a common “thank you”.

We hope this post helps you understand what you can do to be a great tester, and what to expect from your product testing experience!

Happy testing!
