rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.

We’re All Frauds

Gina Trapani: On a daily basis I’m struck by the fact that no number of degrees—or titles, or companies, or years experience, or apps shipped, or books published, or Twitter followers—matter when you’re facing down a situation that’s completely new. You think it through, you consult your trusted advisors, you do your best, and maybe you write down what you learned. That’s just about all you can do. Because you don’t know what you’re doing, and neither does anyone else. The thing I find funny about Imposter Syndrome is that the symptom is you feeling inadequate, but knowing about the syndrome is a relief.

Hosting a YouTube Channel

I have a 5 year old niece, Madeline. She’s awesome. She wants to run her own channel on YouTube. Like her uncle. :)I don’t have a very big channel. Yet… But it’s new and it’s growing. And already I’ve learned quite a few things about filming videos and getting people’s attention without resorting to crazy clickbait titles like “I’m quitting YouTube” (only to announce you’re taking Saturday off)Madeline called the other day asking for tips to host her own channel. She likes to film herself playing with her toys. That might sound a little odd to someone out there without any young kids who watch YouTube, but it’s a really popular genre. My two year old has watched a video of Madeline changing her doll about 20 times. And keeps asking for more.But this isn’t advice just to 5 year olds playing with toys on YouTube. This is for everyone.Schedule yourselfA common piece…

Using Facebook Ads to Find Your Perfect Customer

You’ve got your product. You might even have those first few important customers. But you don’t have real growth. To get to that next stage, you have to find product/market fit. This term, coined by Marc Andreessen, means “being in a good market with a product that can satisfy that market.” To find product/market fit, most people turn to the product. You should be turning to the market instead. By finding the right market for your product and allowing that market to help shape it, you can build something truly needed and know there is a foundation of customers to help your company grow. Facebook Ads are one of the best ways to find that market. Everything Starts With Your Customer The foundation of your business isn’t your product. It’s your customers. (Source: 500 Startups) Everything is built on top of them. No customers = no business, no matter how awesome…

5 Digital Trends in Healthcare that Can’t Be Ignored

We can clearly see the impact technology is having across nearly, if not, all industries – and healthcare is no exception. The changes in user behavior across digital channels is shaping patient behavior, and at the same time questions around potential changes to healthcare legislation are putting new demands on health care systems. Even with the future somewhat unclear, one thing is certain – patients continue to expect improved experiences across digital touchpoints, and we are seeing some clear digital technology trends and opportunities with our healthcare clients.   1. Brand Matters. Brand, as it relates to the digital space, is the new bedside manner. Health systems need to operate with the understanding that their brand is more visible and more critical to their success ever before. The accumulated experiences of the brand combines to create a singular reaction from an audience, and if a brand is strong, that reaction…

Input Masking

I don’t have any UX research to cite, but anecdotally, I like it when inputs that expect data in a specific format us an input mask. I thought I’d just line up a few demos for really easy reference. Robin Herbots’s (jQuery) Inputmask This is an actively maintained plugin. See the Pen jQuery Input Masks by Chris Coyier (@chriscoyier) on CodePen. It requires the jQuery dependency and the bundled plugin is 180 KB (raw), so it’s fairly hefty. Estelle Weyl’s Input Masking Estelle created a vanilla JS version: See the Pen Input Masks by Chris Coyier (@chriscoyier) on CodePen. No dependencies and 5 KB (raw). There is a React component version as well. Beware A quick screen/audio recording of tabbing around a form using JS input masks with VoiceOver enabled. — Scott Jehl (@scottjehl) March 28, 2013 I tested the current version of Inputmask, and this is still an…

Yelp has launched three new features that lets users check-in with a photo, changes the way business images are displayed, and lets users share bookmark collections.
