A heuristic evaluation aims to analyze how well your website’s usability and design align with industry best practices. It’s the first step to understanding what elements of your website you need to change in order to achieve better conversion rates.
Why your website needs a heuristic evaluation
A heuristic evaluation is crucial to improving conversion rates and guiding your A/B testing process. After conducting a heuristic evaluation, you’ll end up with a list of issues that need to be addressed so you can have a better chance of converting visitors into customers.
For example, a heuristic evaluation might uncover that:
- There are elements on your website that are distracting visitors from making a purchase
- Your website doesn’t make visitors feel comfortable about giving you their payment details
- There’s no clear reason why visitors should buy from you
- Your website doesn’t make it clear what visitors need to do to complete their purchase
What does a heuristic evaluation include?
During heuristic evaluation, I will check your website for more than 200 common issues that hold ecommerce websites back from achieving higher conversion rates.
I will analyze every single page on your website, including:
- The homepage
- Category pages
- Product pages
- Cart page
- Checkout page
- About page
- Login page
- Website search pages
After the evaluation is complete, you’ll receive a report that outlines all the discovered issues and includes recommendations on how to address them.
