Are there any drawbacks to usability testing? If so, what are they?

Yes, there are a few potential drawbacks to usability testing.

First, it can be time-consuming to set up and conduct usability tests. You need to recruit participants, schedule a time that works for everyone, and then actually run the test itself. This can take a significant amount of time and effort, especially if you're testing with multiple users.

Second, there is always the potential for something to go wrong during a usability test. Participants might not understand the instructions, they might get confused or lost during the test, or they might simply have a bad day. All of these things can impact the results of the test and make it less reliable.

Finally, usability testing can be expensive. You need to pay for the participants' time, and you might need to rent space if you're not testing in your own office. If you're hiring a professional usability testing company, you'll need to pay their fees as well. All of these costs can add up, making usability testing a potentially costly endeavor.

CRO & UX are a big field, it can be difficult to know where to start 🤔

Most of the guides out there are either too long, too short, or generalize things so much that they do not help you at all.

My free workbook will help you create your own plan for CRO success by showing you how other companies have done it successfully and what went wrong with their strategy to learn from their mistakes. The book is free, as I believe knowledge should be shared! The book has already helped several companies. logo
