User testing for the people
I was introduced to the idea of 5 second tests while taking a copywriting course. I knew it would be great, but I was super hesitant to dole out $60+ to have a few people look at my page for literally a few seconds.
Still, I did it and was amazed by what came back. I thought my hero section was absolute perfection but was quickly put back in my place when my 5 second test results came back. The answers I received were a lot further apart from my intention than I expected.
So I went back and rethought a few things. When I did it again, I knew I had tightened things up significantly.
I firmly believe that most sites can benefit from running 5 second tests.
However, not every creative, indie founder, or budding copywriter has a few hundred bucks to throw at 5 second tests. That's why I created this site.
I'm hoping that if you use this site, you'll see the same benefits that I did - but for a lot, lot less.
