Every website needs usability testing, but we have so little time, staff, money, and other resources. Yet our bosses expect us to test thoroughly, so we need to impress them, too. What to do?!? The trick is to keep it simple—VERY simple!  This presentation will show you how to conduct usability testing that is fast, easy, and free.  And with the help of a fancy schmancy technique that you will learn during this presentation, you'll impress your boss with stunning results.
