You’ve finished some design drafts for a new website. You’ve even shipped those new designs to your website. And now you wonder what people – your website visitors – think about those new changes.

In this post, I’m going to show you 9 creative ways to ask your website visitors for feedback which will help you increase the quantity and quality of gained feedback.

I had a strange epiphany the other day when I was discussing Web design and feedback tools with a friend who just happens to be an excellent designer and has run his own agency for years. I had always thought I knew what he did for a living, but when we began to walk through the design process, and how he spent his day, I realized I knew next to nothing.
