After talking with @patpohler last night about his successes with teardown requests from communities like this, I’d like to offer up Mockly’s site (specifically the homepage, but the whole site is fair game…) to criticism and ideas for increasing conversion.
Here it is, go nuts: http://mock.ly
I have mocks of a redesign of this under way (I’m aware of many of the current site’s shortcomings), but I’d love to hear anyone’s thoughts that might help validate my upcoming changes or come up with more ideas for making this better.
Mockly is a simple SaaS offering that allows web designers to share finished mocks (i.e. flat PNG/JPG files exported from a design program like Photoshop or Sketch) with their clients and get feedback. The key is that showing these mocks in a browser at actual size helps clients understand the context and avoids generic scaling/centering questions. Clients and designers can also add positionable comments, in an attempt to put an end to endless email chains of design feedback. This is not a mockup or prototype generation tool like Balsalmiq, etc—it’s for sharing “pixel perfect” designs in the final stages of feedback.
We have a couple dozen active users and under 5 paid users. I have done almost no marketing for this and want to ramp that up as well once I’ve got my landing page in a better place.
Thanks all for your time and interest!
