How to Ask for a Proper Website Critique

Latest posts by Joel Welsh (see all)

I never, never, ever ceased to be amazed by the intelligence that rises forth from a properly engaged community. The wisdom of crowds is a popular topic of intriguing evaluation these days and you can see it happen in full bloom in the StartupNation community.

You see, you cannot get away with simply posting a link to your website in the community forums and simply asking for others to offer a critique. That is seen by the community crowd as a poorly veiled, and not at all creative, attempt to gain website traffic. Instead, the community says quite clearly,

“We’ll let you brag about your site, but you have got to let us tell you what we truly think of it. Oh, and you’d better take it as good solid constructive criticism or we’ll call you out on that too.”

The really terrific part of all this is that it’s SO valuable. Yes, you can get your website critiqued by the StartupNation community. But you’d better ask properly.

Here’s how you do it.
