In my last post, I discussed how through the use of coupons and free accounts anyone can get started with a remote usability test. Yes, even you dear reader!
This is a short follow-up of how to set up a remote usability test over at Usertesting.com. In a 15 minute video, I will try to guide you through the necessary steps to get started. Ready to start?
In the following video, I will take you through the steps of setting up your own remote usability test. Trust me, it is not as difficult as it seems.
Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance
The key things you need to prepare before setting up any test are:
- What… do you want to test? Which website or mobile app?
- Why… do you want to test? Which insights do you hope to gain?
Of course you get down into the nitty-gritty of fine tuning your test with decisions on target audience, platform, OS versions, time of day, geographical location… possibly someones favorite color, too. However, if you need results fast, cut back on the moaning and groaning and just get started!
Ready… Aim… Fire!
With Usertesting.com, and in the case that you are testing a website, just make sure you have 2 things handy:
- The website URL.
- The scenario that you put the participants in.
The Usertesting.com test set up wizard will help you with the rest. Now sit back and enjoy the quick and dirty (my first ever tutorial) video.
Like any newbie, in this case, the art of screencasting… I forgot to point out where you enter the coupon code, here is a screenshot of the location.
