Alexa

A solopreneur could easily use Alexa to start a business with low start-up cost and high ROI since Amazon has an enormous customer base. The person could conveniently find their group of customers that would be in need of their service. Technology students who want to excel in building phone application, Alexa would be a good practice.

Siteimprove

Siteimprove is the best value for the cost. While there are other systems that give you similar feedback, they cost a lot more and their interfaces seem dated. Siteimprove is constantly adding new features or improving their existing ones. Their customer support is fantastic and their online training and documentation is excellent.

Pros

  • It is easy to navigate through Amazon Developer
  • Even for a non coder, it is very thorough and easy to go through setting up steps
  • Testing for Alexa is also awesome since you can use simulated websites for it instead of buying the actual device

  • Creighton currently uses 5 tools in Siteimprove, Digital Certainty Index (DCI), Quality assurance (QA), accessibility, SEO, and Policies. I have found these to be so helpful in keeping our sites healthy and knowing the digital impact of Creighton sites within the Higher Education industry. To be more specific, Siteimprove has proved to be a helpful tool in identifying areas we are/were lacking such as fixing level 4XX technical errors, content quality, security and user experience.
  • Siteimprove allows reports on sites health to be sent automatically to site owners. The software makes expectations of site owners clear, Siteimprove has the ability to prioritize or categorize errors by identifying errors according to expertise needs. The software indicates how much gains in ‘point rankings’, the site will get if an error is fixed. This is helpful in strategizing what is important and prioritizing what needs to be fixed.
  • We have more than 20,000.00 pages we monitor using Siteimprove.
  • Siteimprove helps us figure our accessibility, usability, credibility and trustworthiness, and how well-poised your site is to respond to SEO challenge within the Higher Education industry.
  • Siteimprove has an amazing customer support.

Cons

  • Although it is easy to build an Alexa skill, in the end there is still some Java script coding involved. More instruction on that could help users finish building a skill. I had to spend a day looking up what things are for the final step. It was a bit time consuming

  • While working in Siteimprove I have noticed modules that are not complete. Siteimprove is a young company and continues to improve its software and also this is expected in software development but I wish they would only push complete modules to their clients.

Alternatives Considered

Alexa is the first type in its product category that I have used.

We have used or tested other tools that get installed on a computer or that are hosted online, but none of them offer the features that come with Siteimprove. TotalValidator Pro will check your site for accessibility issues, but it is a manual check and there is no historical reporting. I can;t remember the names of the other online solutions, but even if they offered similar features as Siteimprove, they were all very expensive .

Return on Investment

  • It helps us show the ROI and reach of our work. Since implementing Alexa into our tracking and reporting, along with other tools, we've seen greater retention with our clients b/c we are able to better show the reach and results of our labor.

  • We used to have a lot of technical errors on our site, as some of the technical errors are hard to scan with an eye. Our rankings were not as good. Now we are a leader in content quality assurance in higher ed. We still have more areas to work on. We are not able to put a strategy for that.
