14 Ways Your Website May Be Giving You a Bad Reputation | Interesting things | Scoop.it

When people come to your site, you’re implicitly asking them to believe in you. You may want them to feel secure enough to buy your product or to hire you, or to understand that your reviews are balanced and honest. Even if you have nothing to sell, you still need new users to know that what you write is credible so that they will become regular visitors.


The trouble is, it’s all too easy to send wrong signals to users. Here are some subtle – and not so subtle – ways your site might inadvertently be doing that:

Create Your Own Doodle Animations with VideoScribe.tv

Robin Good: I am speechless. This is one of the best visual communication tools I have seen this year. Videoscribe.tv allows anyone to create effective doodle animations with the minimum of complexity and with really excellent results.

 

Videoscribe.tv has been available as an iOS app already for some time, but now a desktop version is also available.

 

I have purchased both the iOS and the desktop version of Videoscribe.tv and I have been blown out of my socks after I have seen with my eyes what this little app can do. Amazing.

 

There is a great library of vector art included, plus the software can scour the Internet searching for other vector images to use in your doodle animations. Not only. VideoScribe takes care automatically of crediting the original image authors/source.

 

A music soundtrack can be easily added by utilizing the licensed tracks available and you can also record your own voice-over.

 

Videoscribe.tv can export finalized doodles at different resolution levels from low quality to HD, and as JPG/PNG sequences or standard .MOV files. The final video can be saved locally, uploaded directly to YouTube or your Dropbox account or shared on Facebook.

 

See how VideoScribe works in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fytT81JirMQ&feature=colike 

 

You can get Videoscribe.tv only by purchasing a Sparkol PRO license (apx. €15/month) here: http://www.sparkol.com/gopro.php

The downside of such behaviour, is the limitations that it places on the ability of the busines to grow, and to ultimately achieve its full potential.

 

This excellent article, suggests that business owners need to fire themselves from doing jobs that with them handling them, stand in the way of their company's growth.
