Of course what good are all these other ideas if your marketing site sucks?
Userbrain is a service that connects your website to independent reviewers who then give honest feedback about your website in the form of a video.
Set some basic reviewer criteria (location, gender, etc.), set up a few questions you want to be answered, and then in 24ish hours, you should have some pretty serious information about how your brand/marketing website is perceived.
Here are the questions I asked the reviewers:
— What’s the first thing you notice?
— What can you do on this site?
— What products or services are offered on this site?
— Who is this site intended for?
At the time of writing this, Userbrain will let you do one user test for free – check it out
Cost: $19 – $29 / user test
