This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Questions about Site Reviews are off-topic because questions here are expected to be relevant for a variety of people in the same situation. Reviewing a site, flow or interface only helps one person at a specific time. Instead try to ask a focused question about a particular aspect of the design that solicits solutions, not opinions." – Vitaly Mijiritsky, JonW
Although sites like this are often very useful, and fivesecondtest.com in particular if you don't have a budget, you may also just want to do a screen share/take notes if you don't have a budget. I've done valuable usability testing with Skype or join.me. You can also record these experiences for free with quicktime screen Video Recording feature. If that's important for your documentation, just also make sure to properly set-up audio recording also. These types of usability tests are often quick and dirty, but they will undoubtedly give you a lot of useful information.
Firstly, always make it easy for users to provide feedback, send comments or request enhancements. Although your product may not be perfect right now it is an ongoing process and its important to get feedback from real life users. This is the only feedback that is really worth listening to.
