Get beta testers


8

I'm working on a website that I'll need beta tested soon. It's a startup. Where should I go to get a good pool of testers? It would also be great to have a good pool of hackers who can show security holes before it's released.

Also, you can try to submit your startup to http://betali.st You should also submit your startup to as many blogs and bloggers as possible.

You can use the following services to find beta testers.

  1. Prefinery
  2. uTest
  3. Centercode
For security testing, I would suggest to look at hosted services such as

  1. iViZ
  2. Fortify

I have been fairly successful finding beta testers in LinkedIn and Twitter, by providing a link to a landing page that has some information about my web app. In LinkedIn I just ask the question about people wanting to do beta testing and there is usually a good number of people willing to try.

I usually use unbounce.com to create landing pages.
