Tips for finding Wordpress beta testers?

Hi all!

I'm developing a Wordpress plugin primarily targeting news, sports or content based sites. (The plugin automates a/b testing in real time)

Any tips for finding beta testers who can give valuable feedback?

There is a Wordpress group on Facebook that you may want to join and make your beta offer. https://www.facebook.com/groups/AllAboutWP/1212343705444077/ You can see the rules of the group in the pinned post at top. I know the group owner. Play nice. AG ?

I agree with Art - social media is your friend! There are quite a few Facebook WordPress groups, some for devs, some for content owners, some for beginners, etc. which may be worth pitching in. Take a look at them, check out the recent posts and the group rules and post in the most relevant.

Or even ask the same question in those groups - there are plugin developers there too who most likely have been in the same position and might know of a better way to find beta testers.

Twitter might be worthwhile too - include relevant hashtags. #wordpress is a must - there are some WordPress aggregator bots that retweet anything with a #wordpress (personally I tend to hide these bots as they tweet too much, others find them useful).

Finally, check out your local area for any WordPress meetups you can attend. There is a great monthly meetup in London which has a fantastic community spirit and feeds back into the great WordPress ecosystem, so casting stones into that pond (albeit local to you) might create a big enough ripple to create some traction for you.

You could find the most popular A/B testing plugins on the WordPress directory and comment there (appropriately) to engage others in what they're looking for in your niche plugin. This will undoubtedly expose you to beta testers.
