The idea behind it is to help you get focused feedback on what you’re working on and the goal is to get people early on to use your product, and while hopefully, they give you feedback, the real aim is to get real usage out of your product.
Software remains in the alpha testing stage until the test team is satisfied the software is stable and performing as intended. After the test team is satisfied, the next testing phase begins. This is known as the beta test phase. Beta test is the second phase of software testing in which a sampling of the intended audience tries the product out. Beta is the second letter of the Greek alphabet.
While you can use your email list and social media to find beta testers for your product and service, it makes more sense to use a platform with the right audience and the capacity to critic your App or Website. Before focusing on customer acquisition, you should collect real-user feedback and ensure your product is bug free, or you are likely to waste a lot of time and money. Find your target audience.
