Earlier this month I asked for feedback on the new site. I’ve heard from a number of you and I wanted to share the preliminary results.
Two Thumbs Up
I had hoped you would like the new site, so I was pleased to find such high percentages in the “Strongly Agree” category when asked about the site design. See what I mean:
1. Do you feel the new logo more accurately represents Living Well With Epilepsy’s mission?
60% Strongly Agree
2. Do you feel the appearance of the new site is more appealing to you as a reader?
73.3% Strongly Agree
3. Do you feel the information on the new website is more easily accessible?
73.3% Strongly Agree
A few surprises
I was surprised by some answers in the demographics section. You may be too:
4. Do you have epilepsy?
71.4% said NO
5. How old are you?
46.7% 18-24 years old
33.3% 35-42 years old
6. Are you male or female?
(this makes me happy since the previous design seemed to draw a predominantly female audience, which is fine, but guys get epilepsy too!)
7. How did you first learn about Living Well With Epilepsy?
23.1% Search Engine
Take a look at how varied the types of seizures some of these respondents experience.
8. What types of seizures do you experience?
- Temporal Lobe Epilepsy
- Complex Petite Mal
- Compex Partial
- Myoclonic Absence Epilepsy
- Grand Mal Complex Partial
- Idiopathic (no known cause)
You also submitted some great ideas to be covered throughout the coming year. I look forward to digging in on these topics.
9. What topics would you like to see covered in the coming year?
