Johnny’s Spring Contest: Win Cool Prizes

Related posts:


Spring is a time of renewal and growth, but here at Johnny Holland it’s also a great excuse to throw a contest. In true spring fashion though, this year’s first contest is meant to encourage all of our readers to not only learn something new, but also share their knowledge with the overall community. A few lucky readers that provide a truly golden nugget of insight have some great prizes in store for them. To learn more, read on.

What’s at stake?

This time we are giving away some great prizes for everybody interested in measuring the quality of websites. We’ve managed to pursuade the nice people of Usabilla to give away some of their service packages. This means we can give away 6 prizes.

  • 1 Large Plan ($950)
  • 2 Standard Plans ($199)
  • 3 Small Plans ($49)

What is Usabilla? Usabilla allows you to easily and quick test anything from full blown webpage, to just a simple sketch you cranked out to test an idea remotely. Features include Discovering Usability Issues, Measure Task Performance, Collect User Feedback, Visualizations of Results, and it’s Multilingual. It allows you to ask questions from real users like:

  • What draws your attention?
  • What do you like on this page?
  • Where do you want to click for information about X?
  • How well were your expectations met?
  • How would you expect it to work?

What are the rules?

Follow @johnnyholland and tweet a best practice on user experience in combination with the hashtag #bestpractice and @johnnyholland.

The rules are just that simple. You tweet, we decide who wins. Only people that followed the (simple) rules of the game have a chance to win. There is no possibility to discuss the outcome of the contest. We will only inform the winners of the contest. They will get an e-mail asking for their contact details. Winners have two weeks to reply, if that doesn’t happen… we will choose a new winner.

The contest starts on March 18th and ends March 31st. The winners will be informed before April 5th. You can send in as many best practices as you want. Everybody can compete, except for our own kahunas and dudes.

Example:
