After 20 years, it is time for a career change.
In May 2021 I accepted a full time position as a QA Analyst, Accessibility, for BM Technologies, Inc. (BMTX) f/k/a BankMobile and no longer accepting new consulting clients. I continue to maintain The User Is Out There for research and assistance with website accessibility and human experience web design. – Kim Krause Berg, IAAP CPACC
An early pioneer in SEO and website design beginning in 1995, in 2001 Kim Krause Berg shifted to human experience design and usability. Realizing the benefits of combining user experience and search engine marketing practices, she wrote a popular blog called Cre8pc to share her ideas on Holistic UX and SEO as a methodology.
A Unique Perspective on User Experience Design
Holistic UX and SEO
“I don’t just treat symptoms and apply quick fixes. I consider the entire website eco-system and invest in a positive, productive experience for each website visitor.”— Kim Krause Berg, CPACC and Usability Specialist
“She long ago became my go-to source for all aspects of usability and accessibility – I’ve found her knowledge in those areas to be unsurpassed. She has also proven herself to be extremely insightful regarding intricate design issues, often spotting potential issues missed by other designers. For anyone concerned with compliance with both the legal aspects and best practices of webpage design, usability, and accessibility, I give my strongest possible recommendation that you consult with Kim.” — Doc Sheldon, Owner, Intrinsic Value SEO
Over 25 Years of Usability, Accessibility and Conversions Website Support
Internationally known, Kim Krause Berg, CPACC Accessibility and Usability Specialist, provides specialized website support through a variety of internet marketing and web design services.
“Having worked within the internet marketing industry since 1995, and SEO since 2000, I’ve long known the critical need web sites have for proper Usability. The more SEO has evolved in those years, the more User Experience has become integral to proper organic optimization as well. Specializing in forensic SEO audits, I have had the need to bring Kim in on multiple projects once my audits have determined UX to be severely flawed. The level of dedication, knowledge, and experience Kim brings to the IA/UX and overall SEO evaluations, recommendations and client implementation guidance is second to no-one else I’ve worked with or referred work to. I can’t speak highly enough as to how important it is to have someone like Kim doing this work. The value she and her work can bring to a site can positively impact ALL visitor experiences, regardless of referrer source.” — ALAN BLEIWEISS, Forensic SEO Consultant
“Recently, one of our web design clients expressed concerns about increasing their website accessibility due to lawsuits that are becoming more prevalent in their industry. What a relief it was to have Kim to turn to for an in-depth accessibility audit. Kim provides something unusual in my estimation. Because of her broad experience in the web industry, excellent ability to communicate, educate and the depth with which she approaches her work and life she really stands out to me as a singular resource.” — FAT EYES Web Design
