You spend endless hours creating your blog. When people visit your site, there area certain actions you want them to perform: read content, visit certain pages, click here – click there. You may THINK your design is doing what you set out for it to do, but is it really?
How we view our website – versus what another person views can be night and day. We may think the fun font shows our personality, while another user may think it looks unprofessional or hard to read. If you are serious about running a website or blog that makes money – you need to get into the head of your audience.
The company UserTesting, is offering a free service called PEEK that gives you a free 5-minute evaluation of your website or blog. You site will be reviewed by a real person, and you’ll get to see a video of someone talking through their thoughts on your website.
I just recently found out about this site from a few friends who have had their website PEEK’d. A review of your website can be hard to hear if you don’t take criticism well. Also, there are somethings that the people who are viewing the site may not understand. One example of this, was the reviewer mentioned to a friend of mine that the photos on her site were too large. Several of her images were Pinterest friendly, which may not be something the reviewer thought of. I submitted my blog, looking forward to hearing from another person’s perspective how they see my website.
Here is an example of a PEEK website review. This will give you an idea of what you can expect.
Knowing what others think and hearing an honest opinion, can help you create a better website – not just for you, but for your those who interact with your site.
