Better Web Monday – Charts, Mockups, and Criticism

Take Me Out

Did you enjoy the holiday weekend? Mine was spent high atop PNC Park where I watched a sea of pirate flags flowing in the sweet breeze of victory. Unfortunately, I was too far up to catch a hotdog from the patented hotdog launcher. One day I’ll nab a flying dog…

Until then, here’s a few tools to improve your craft.

Pixelfold – Criticism and feedback is the fertilizer that helps you grow your skills—skills to build better websites and make the web a wonderful place to navigate. Pixelfold is a service for designers to submit logos, illustration, or web design work and receive feedback from experts.

MockFlow –  Building a better web means starting with a solid foundation. A sketch on a napkin or a diagram in a notebook is the catalyst to building something unique. Turning those sketches into a wireframe is what MockFlow can help with. They’re a wireframing tool that’s easy to get started, plan a project, and add collaborators. @MockFlow

Inventory-based advertising is a better way to advertise

Since we're generating specific ads based on a business' inventory, ads are only shown to customers that are ready to buy those products.

This mitigates waste and ensures that you only get clicks that have a better chance of leading to a sale. Inventory-based ads help you skip past the bartering and get right to the sale. Meaning you can spend less time maintaining ads and more time taking care of your business.
