Crowdville is an innovative platform that gives you the chance to earn money online by trying out new products and services. As this crowdsourcing website launches in the UK, here’s all the details on how to sign up.

Being paid just for giving your opinion on something seems too good to be true, doesn’t it? The reality, however, is that this is exactly how Crowdville works. By helping, companies find bugs with their unreleased apps, or by simply giving feedback about your user experience, you’ll then get paid. It’s as easy as that. And whilst you may not become a millionaire overnight, it’s a handy way to make money, and you get the first look at exciting, new apps.

So how does Crowdville work exactly?

Crowdville works by following the ideals of crowdtesting – a growing trend that gets all the benefits from crowdsourcing but specifically for testing software. On Crowdville, brands test out their new products and services on Crowdville’s online community of Crowders, and the website makes it as easy as possible for anyone to get involved. The great thing about it is you can take part in Crowdville’s missions from the comfort of your own home using your own smartphone or computer – handy for when you’re on the go.

Crowdville started in Italy back in 2014, and by signing up you’ll join an existing community of around 30,000 dedicated Crowders. As companies are beginning to realise the importance of listening to their customer base, it means that your opinion is valued more than ever – and Crowdville’s users are therefore essential to brands who will release new products onto the market. Further good news for Crowders is that the more missions you take part in, the more you earn – so it really is worth getting stuck in.

How to sign up

Crowdville is right this second launching in the UK, so you can get a feel for the website by taking part in their Pilot Mission. Missions range from simple surveys to bug finding tests, and by completing missions you’ll be helping shape the way media, telecom, and banking companies release their products onto the market.

To sign up, just head to www.crowdville.net (you can register using your Facebook login) and complete your online profile. There’s an internal social network called Otium, where you can keep up to date on all things Crowdville, and it’s where you’ll find out about any new missions. What’s more is you can invite your friends to join you, and if you complete the tasks, you’ll then get paid. It’s new and I’m looking forward to seeing Crowdville grow in the coming months and years.
