Years of work experience with companies, marketers and website owners taught me that searching and finding were just the beginning. Design for people with a purpose is the greater challenge. My job is to see the whole picture, help you plan for it, test for it and see the opportunities that inclusive design provides. – – Kim Krause Berg

What Is The Value of a Site Audit?

Investing in a Full Site Audit Provides a Competitive Advantage

Site audits are rarely performed in the same way.  An SEO performs a site audit and a usability analyst performs a site audit and a conversions specialist performs a site audit and each will not only apply different methodologies, they will limit the output by whatever skills they are best trained in. Some digital marketing companies outsource to put together this team that brings together the most productive skills. It speaks well of that company to provide site audits from a holistic approach.  In this way, they demonstrate their desire to discover the needs of the company requesting help at a much more insightful, expertly skilled and applicable level.

It is a good idea to choose a company that understands the value of each site audit and how they compliment each other rather than conflict. If an SEO doesn’t value usability, they shun a vital part of testing. The same happens in the reverse. In truth, a full site audit is non-partisan in scope and includes SEO, usability, accessibility, information architecture, mobile and conversions testing.

New and Newsy

Kim Krause Berg spoke on accessibility and marketing recently. 

Accessibility for an answer engine world: for whom and in what environments?

Kim Krause Berg: The way we view accessibility is outdated. We tend to think that it’s for blind or deaf who needed assistive technology like JAWS. But that is dated – 15 years old. Today, we refer to it as assistive and inclusive. Accessibility includes billions of people around the world, beginning with sight impaired, but also people who forget their glasses… but it’s also the mental or emotional state. If you are using assistive technology through voice, maybe you are upset? Or intoxicated? Or medicated? Or simply easily distracted by the zippy sliders, pop-ups and other intrusive things that sites throw at us.
