Do you know how good your website is? We look at our own websites too much to ever have an objective view of how good it is, or what needs to improve. Luckily, I found a website that will allow you to create a website test for free and get real feedback from people all around the country. This sort of feedback will be able to show you objectively what is working and what is not.
Here is How it Works:
Create an community plan account through Five Second Test. Once you have an account, you will want to spend a few minutes participating in other people’s tests. By participating in other peoples tests you receive karma points. These karma points will allow you to “pay” for your test to be published. Plus, by taking these tests you will get a better idea of what sort of test you would want to run for your website.
Once you have completed a few tests it is time to create your own test. There are 3 kinds of tests you can create.
- You can have people look at your website for 5 seconds and then ask them a series of questions.
- You can see where people would click on your website when asked a particular question.
- Lastly, you can see how participants would complete a particular process on your website.
To see an example, take IWD’s 5-second test, and see if it is something that you think would be beneficial for your company.
Good luck and thanks for your feedback!!
