Most web designers and developers avoid getting feedback on their work because it can be time consuming, frustrating and even scary. But it doesn’t have to be that way. When done right, you can gather feedback that will inspire you, give you a fresh perspective and push your work to the next level.
Here is a quick 7-step framework you can use to get better website feedback (read the full article on Hongkiat.com).
Step 1: Start Early. The earlier you start to ask for feedback, the easier it will be to make a change.
Step 2: Be Open. Seek feedback only when you're going to pay attention to it.
Step 3: Use the Right Tools. Make sure you are using a system that allows you to organize your feedback and make actionable decisions. My personal favorite, Concept Feedback :)
Step 4: Recruit Everyone. Whether they have a Ph.D. in Computer Science or lack any relevant website experience, everyone can contribute something of value.
Step 5: Ask the Right Questions. Clear and concise directions generate specific and helpful feedback.
Step 6: Make the Most of Criticism. Criticism never feels good at first, but once you’re able to take a step back from your design and look at it objectively, you can usually find something helpful.
Step 7: Repeat the Process. Continue to get website feedback as you revise and improve your design.
