Take a Peek at Your Usability

Take a Peek at Your Usability

Sometimes, familiarity with our own website can blind us to its flaws.

A nifty, free service called Peek now gives you the opportunity to view your website with new eyes. It offers user evaluations of blogs and websites.

Just go to https://peek.usertesting.com/ and enter your URL. Within hours, you’ll receive a five-minute video review of your website by an ordinary person. You’ll watch as they navigate your site, decipher your messaging and record their overall impressions.

I’ve watched a number of Peek reviews and while the opinions aren’t expert, the comments offer fresh insight into a website’s usability. The review of our SubHub website revealed that our “membership” message needs tweaking. You can view it here: https://peek.usertesting.com/result/62981056367

So give it a try and let us know if your Peek gave you a new perspective on your website.
