Meet a Tester @DMEXCO
We have big news! This year you can meet a tester from our crowd at our dmexco booth on 11th and 12 of September in Cologne.
Bring your digital product and get it tested. Moritz will test your website and share his thoughts with you while performing your test case.
The idea behind it
We believe in crowdtesting as an ideal tool to ensure that you are hitting your KPIs, getting a proper ROI and are able to optimise your conversion rate. We thought about many ways to prove that to you: videos, charts, case studies. But the best way is simply to show. So, we decided to bring a tester from our crowd to the booth and give you the chance to let your website be tested live. Experience how insightful crowdtesting can be – even with just one tester. And then imagine how much you could learn from testing with 10, 20 or 50 testers.
Who will be there?
We’ve invited our tester Moritz from Cologne. He joined our crowd in 2017 and has already worked on several tests. His preferred test types are Usability Tests and Bug Tests. Moritz is very experienced – he is a computer science student and is working as a professional tester. Like many young people, he spends almost 5 hours per day online on his computer or his smartphone. He uses several social media platforms, shops online and uses messaging services. He also uses smart home devices like Philips Hue, Alexa, Nest, Raspberry Pi and Google Home.
For him testing and searching for bugs sometimes feels like a treasure hunt and he es very enthusiastic when he finds ways to improve a website. He is looking forward to dmexco, because there he is able to give direct feedback and actually talk to the people about their digital product, which he says is probably the most efficient information exchange.
What can be tested?
Moritz will test your website with use cases chosen by you. Possible questions/ use cases might be:
• Please describe in your own words what XYZ is/ what you use XYZ for.
• How would you rate the operability of the website?
Moritz will then share his thoughts aloud with you and this way providing you with direct feedback.
How can you get your website tested?
Interested? – great! The easiest way to get your website tested is to just drop by at our booth (Booth No. E-052a, Hall 07.1) at dmexco in cologne. Moritz will bring his laptop so all you need is the URL of your website. Of course, you can also book a meeting with him, either via our contact form or by contacting one of our sales colleagues who will be at dmexco.
