My Friday Favourite this week is Peek by UserTesting.
Website Testing by a Real Person
If you’re a web-site owner, then Peek allows you to see and hear a 5-minute video of a real person using your web-site – offering comments and feedback on its look and feel, how usable it is and what they think about your site overall.
The Peek service is currently in beta and so testing is totally free! Once you submit your website URL to Peek, one of their team will take a look at your site and offer feedback via a 5 minute video. The video will allow you to see and hear what the person reviewing your website thinks of your websites purpose, layout, usability and content.
Videos of the Peek team reviewing your site are usually delivered within a few hours, but during busy periods may take a few days. Remember, the service is totally free!
Who are Peek?
Peek is a free usability testing tool powered by UserTesting, the a leading user research platform. Peek is offered free because the UserTesting team believe the best way to spark your interest in their testing platform is to let you see the magic of usability testing in action!
The Website Testing results
I used Peek to review this blog and after submitting my URL, was sent a 5 minute video of somebody offering real-time feedback on my site.
The video offered some very valuable insights into what an impartial visitor to my blog had to say. I’ll be making some changes based on that feedback!
I regularly speak with business owners who share with me that their website under-performs from a sales perspective. The role of your business website should be to educate and encourage prospects to engage with you.

If you suspect your own website isn’t performing as well as it might in bringing in new business, then taking a Peek user testing session may give you some pointers on how your website can be improved!
