heuristic analysis thebar com
Heuristic Analysis: TheBar.com
  • Redundancy-
    • much of what is included in the top portion of the screen is repeated at the bottom
    • Drinks by Type, Drinks by Brand, Quick Drinks- all of these could easily be categorized as “Drinks”
    • “Drinks” and “Cocktails” are used synonymously but not defined as so
  • Use of “slide show” for new products- requires consumers to spend time on site to see all of them scroll
  • The Task List primarily came out to be either neutral or negative in terms of ease of use, as outlined below:

Most User friendly of all competitive sites

However, not easy to find. May be a threat in future.

Popular search result

No clear business purpose at first; appears to be tied to an app. Busy site design

Confidential

extremebartending com
ExtremeBartending.com

Popular Search Result

Unnecessary Ads, Relies on Video to relay site purpose (potential accessibility issue)

Confidential

conclusion
Conclusion
  • Thebar.com may be the only industry led recipe site available today, but the competition is close.
  • Content needs overhaul
    • Analysis of target user needs can pinpoint changes
    • Develop Task-Friendly site
    • Organize with inverted pyramid
  • Make website more user-friendly, and less of a blatant Diageo Advertisement

recommendations
Recommendations
  • 1. Simplify language: and be consistent- Cocktails vs. Mixed Drinks
  • 2. Simplify Layout: Remove “slideshow” and provide users with a visual cue that coordinates with “thebar.com” theme.
  • 3. Simplify Menu Bar 1) Skill Level, 2) Occasion Planning for 3)Budget
  • 4. Engage Users with Visual Cues: Provide images of the bottles that they can retain mentally or print out via shopping list and bring with them to the store

Recommendations

  • 5. Improve Search Function: Current search function requires that users choose what area of the site they want to search (ie “recipes”)- remove this feature.
  • 6. Improve Store Finding Feature
  • 7. Clean Up Recipes: Current recipe database has too many repeats of same drink/different brand
  • 8. Provide Breadcrumb Trail: Users very frequently got lost in cognitive task analysis
