The best way to know which activity is working or not is by looking at the data. We no longer have to guess because we have tools that we can set up to tell us how we are doing.
Ever gone to a website and left because it did not load fast enough, or you couldn’t find what you were looking for? User testing allows us to evaluate the user experience on your website to make sure your potential customers stick around, find what they need and buy from you or call you and become your actual customers, clients or members.
