The FiveSecondTest gives users a unique way to critique their landing pages. The application works by giving users a place to upload a screenshot or mockup of their landing page. The user sets questions that go with the landing page. Testers are given a total of five seconds to view the image provided. They are then asked to answer the questions the user created. The FiveSecondTest extracts keywords from the landing page results and presents them to the user as a colorful graph. This information can help the user better understand the first impression made by their landing page and assist them in finding ways to improve their landing pages. The user can manage multiple tests and view account statistics.
FiveSecondTest was created by the Melbourne-based Angry Monkeys, a web development team. The team includes Alan Downie who brings 15 years of application development experience to the table as well as Matt Milosavljevic who is a CSS guru, UX developer and web designer. The pair is managed by Thuy Downie, who provides client relations and bookkeeping services for the company. Along with the FiveSecondTest, the Angry Monkeys have also worked on BugHerd, NavFlow, Change Factory and the Decks ‘n Scaping and Affordable Scapes websites.
The FiveSecondTest gives users a unique way to learn more about the landing pages they create. By giving an unbiased individual only five seconds to view a landing page, the user is able to obtain a great deal of insight into their design and how effective it really is. The application also breaks down the information into attractive graphs that are easy to read and can help the user further understand how the landing page is perceived.
The FiveSecondTest has a very professional design that uses a light blue and black color scheme. The site is well-organized with plenty of open space as well as a good balance of content. After performing a FiveSecondTest, the user is presented with green pie charts that provide more information on how their landing page did.
A new user can sign up for a FiveSecondTest account by clicking the blue “Sign Up for Free” button along the left hand side of the page. The user is asked to choose their desired membership plan. The following page asks the user for a display name, email address, password and how they heard about FiveSecondTest.
FiveSecondTest gives users five membership plans to choose from. The first is a free Community membership which includes the ability to do a FiveSecondTest and gives the user access to public tests. The Solo membership costs around $20 per month and includes up to 100 responses, unlimited FiveSecondTests, public and private tests and fourth level priority.
