If you have your own website then it’s really important that you know what your website says about you. Many people create a design that they like only to learn later that it’s sending the wrong message about them and their business. It might be worth it to take a survey of others to find out what message is really coming across with the website that you’ve created.
There are a few ways that you could do such a survey:
- Ask your family and friends to share their opinions with you about your website. The downside of this is that they may not be honest because they won’t want to hurt your feelings.
- Put the word out on your social networks that you’re seeking feedback on your website. You reach a broader audience than family and friends this way.
- Post an ad online looking to trade website feedback. This is a good way to get feedback from other people who have websites.
- Pay people to take a survey about your website. You can advertise a job online giving money to people who take your short survey.
The survey should give you an idea of what you need to improve on your website so that it says what you really want it to say about you. Since most visitors won’t spend long on your website you really want to make a good first impression!
