Last summer, we introduced our latest product Usabilla Live – a tool that allows you to gather real-time user feedback on your live website. We are excited to see that the tool has been met with enthusiasm by marketers, designers, usability & UX practitioners. We were able to overcome the common challenges of remote user research with live, visual, and most of all qualitative user feedback.
Now, it’s time for the next big step. Context-sensitive live feedback is great. It also inspired us to look into new ways to gather even more specific and targeted user feedback. After listening to the ideas and wishes of our customers, and countless hours of conceptual work, wireframing, and programming, we are happy to announce the release of an awesome new feature: Usabilla Live Campaigns.

Emotions become increasingly important on the Web. While good usability has become a common standard, the user experience of a website has turned into a major distinguishing factor. People no longer want to solve boring tasks on your site, they want to be entertained and experience pleasure while finding answers to their questions.
Happy website visitors are more creative, can better navigate your website, and are more likely to become loyal customers. That’s why we have developed Usabilla Live: Optimize your website for emotions by allowing visitors’ feelings to become actionable indicators for a better user experience. With a focus on the user experience, you not only make your visitors happy, you can also increase your conversion rates. Read the rest of this entry »
Every designer we know has a scattered selection of images, Evernote clippings, or bookmarks of inspirational design elements. We think collecting and curating UI elements on webpages can be much better and easier. That’s why we are happy to announce Usabilla Discover.
Getting high quality design feedback just got even faster and easier! We are happy to introduce the new version of Usabilla. The simplified design makes it even easier for you to decide on the right test. You can create tests faster, and you get a better overview of your running tests. Log in with your account to see the new design!
The dashboard gives you a clear overview of how your tests are doing. We designed the whole thing from the ground up, so everything is optimized for speed and ease of use. You can setup a test and create an account in only 31 seconds. Seriously, we are not kidding! Have a look:

Publicly launching your startup and scoring a post at one or more of the mythical tech blogs might seem to be the ultimate way to kickstart your early stage startup. In many cases it isn’t. Sustainable growth needs different mechanisms. Don’t pat yourself on the shoulder for that one time hit that distort your metrics, but instead focus on the triggers and channels that help you to grow your user base in both volume as activity constantly. Pitch potential customers and the real thought-leaders in your field, instead of wasting energy inside the small world of techies.

For the last few months, we regularly added definitions to our Usability ABC. We are proud to say that we will double our efforts by teaming up with Justin Mifsud of UsabilityGeek fame. By regularly adding and refining definitions to the list, we think this resource can be of help to anyone interested in usability and UX.
Remember to revisit the ABC from time to time (be it on our blog or UsabilityGeek) and be sure to recommend it to colleagues, friends and others that can be helped with the terminology of UX.

With Usabilla it is easy to add additional information to your participants by adjusting the URL to your test. Adding this additional information just got a lot more useful, because we added filter options directly in the sidebar when you analyze your test.
Before I show you the filter options, I will quickly recap how you can alter URLs.
