How do you figure out if you need a website redesign? You could just be bored with your site but that doesn’t mean it isn’t working. You could poll your fan base, but they are used to the way things are working. What if you could get a fresh pair of eyes on your site to give you a through talk through of what they think of your site?
Now you can. I have been debating a redesign of the site to make it more user friendly and mobile friendly but first I wanted to know what was working and what should be a priority to change.
There is an awesome website that will allow you a free first impression review by a real person. They will spend 5 minutes on your site and talk their way through what they are thinking about your site.
So what did I think of the impression that Peek gave my site. Actually it was quite painful. I had no idea that to brand new viewer the things on my site might be difficult to navigate. They were unsure what the site was actually about and what they should do next. The anonymous user also talked her way through the site letting me know what exactly made sense and that she thought was great design features.
This has given me a great since of direction as to what things I need to improve with the new design and what is working.
I challenge all of you to see if you need a website redesign by using the free service, Peek, by UserTesting.
Now that you know where you can get unbiased opinion of your website I would love to hear what changes you would like to see made to this site or what you think is great in the comments below.
