What We Do

Audience research & usability testing

Understand what your audience really needs 

Audience research and usability testing are essential for the success of your site. They align your internal stakeholders with the real-world needs of your end users and content producers. Most importantly, research saves time and money by ensuring we implement design and functionality that is truly valuable to your internal team and external audiences. 

How we work: deep research and testing at every step 

We weave intentional audience research and usability testing throughout our agile process. We begin with a kickoff workshop to learn more about your goals and challenges. Then, our research informs our work— using tactics like landscape and competitive analyses, stakeholder discussions, heuristic evaluations, analytics, and in-depth interviews with users.

The result is a website that doesn’t get in its own way — it looks sharp, is easy to use, and accelerates your organization toward its business goals.

I always knew that Alley was being honest with guidance – not just giving us what we asked for but thinking through the best possible product. You had our interests and our audience’s interests in mind every step of the way.
