Ranting about what I’ve posted previously about app screenshots and website live demos.
Notice something missing?
Where are my screenshots? How do you get me to spend 5 minutes of my life in signing up for your service … checking your features out … talking about you to the next person that IMs me … if you cannot show me a static (worst case) image of what I’m signing up for?
This is the age of the empowered web-consumer … if you want to get my attention, use the proper channels.
It’s like walking up Madison Ave on a warm summer evening … the shops all have great looking window displays. It’s a fundamental marketing ploy … call it the last-mile of marketing if you will. If I’m at your doorstep, do something to drag me into the store!
Back to Goowy …
Well, if it’s good enough, then more people will eventually talk about it … and then, I *might* try your service out. But thats the long-winded approach, don’t you think?!
Update: The closest to a screenshot they get is on their download page … thats a catch 22 … how do I get excited enough to get to the download page in the first place?
