Brands must test nearly every digital initiative, from the design of calls-to-action (CTAs) to the links inside of email newsletters. Luckily, a company called MyCrowd QA is helping to make the process easier and more affordable.

MyCrowd QA is a crowd testing platform that enables both small and large businesses to test their websites, mobile apps, landing pages and more with testers from around the world. According to the company's CEO Matthew Cordasco, the platform is a good option for small businesses (SMBs) because it provides an affordable solution to those who do not have access to a testing team.

"The on-demand model really was initially conceived for the SMBs who lack the wherewithal to have a very large and dedicated QA team themselves, who were very price sensitive and maybe couldn't afford testing." 

In addition, Cordasco notes that MyCrowd QA can also expand an enterprise's QA capabilities, enabling them to run tests and get results quickly. In fact, MyCrowd QA offers an on-demand service where brands can select testers based on filters like language, country and device, as well as custom, invite-only tests where brands can use more precise criteria to select testers.

It is important to note that the crowd controls the quality of tests, as they validate the quality of bugs that are submitted. Moreover, results are provided quickly, with tests typically completed in 12 to 24 hours and rarely lasting longer than three days. Plus, the company can run expedited tests if necessary.

MyCrowd QA offers a free plan that enables users to leverage "pay-per-bug" pricing with a $150 max test budget and access to 25,000 testers, as well as a Pro plan for $49 a month and an Agency plan for $199 a month.
