I'm contacting you with a short questionnaire to verify your eligibility for an upcoming usability study with Google. This study is an opportunity to provide feedback on something that's currently in development. This study will help the Google team better understand your needs in order to incorporate them into future product enhancements.
We're currently scheduling participants for a study that takes place Monday, July 16, Tuesday, July 17 and Wednesday, July 18. Sessions will be conducted remotely - basically we'll call you on the phone and set up a screen sharing session with you on your own computer. You'll need a high-speed Internet connection and a computer running Windows 7/Vista/XP. If you're interested in participating, please complete the questionnaire linked below. We'll then be in touch directly to discuss details and set your appointment time.
Details of the study:
You'll receive a $100 Perks.com gift code as a token of our appreciation. After participation in the study your gift code will be emailed to you from Perks.com, our incentives distributor that offers gift cards for a variety of online retailers in fashion, housewares, sporting goods, books and more.
To participate you will need to:
-Be at least 18 years old
-Accept the terms of our Usability Non-Disclosure Agreement
-Allow us to video or audio record the session
-Have a PC computer running Windows 7/Vista/XP
-Have a broadband Internet connection (DSL, Cable, T1 all fine).
-Have a phone you can use comfortably while working on your computer for the duration of the study session. A speaker phone or hands-free headset is recommended.
**Please note that you won't be compensated for responding to this questionnaire; you'll receive a gratuity only if you actually attend a study session with Google.**
