The landing page for Learnemy (say lurn-uh-mee) is up! I was informed last Saturday that someone from the main Founder Institute office was trying to see if he could push for a post on some FI graduates on Mashable, so I thought I could get down to getting it done after I’m done with work this week. After-all, Mashable is popular and it’s good publicity.
Turns out on that on Tuesday, there’s a shout-out that the collection of the graduates’ information was to be submitted yesterday. Obviously, I panic. I don’t know if I should or could rush out something decent for that coverage when I have no technical skills. Publicity is definitely good for a marketplace business like mine, bu an influx of demand that I cannot meet will only disappoint these people.
Then I had second thoughts on that second thoughts. I figured that people are willing to leave their email on usehipster.com without knowing what that company does because TechCrunch covered them, rushing for the Mashable cover shouldn’t backfire that badly on me.
Extremely blessed, two of my FI classmates could do up something really simple for me (<3 Matthew and Ernest). I did an image of what I was thinking about, using PowerPoint (no doubt) and it looked like this.
Ernest created a mock up that look like this
But me, in my infinite wisdom, couldn’t edit the words and stuffs on it, so I choose Matt’s html instead.
Matt hammered out a html that used pictures of those words instead of actual words so that it’s dumb enough for me to edit it to get the sizes I want. The skeleton really looked hideous. lol
until I got to the beautiful landing page that’s on Learnemy now.
Fingers crossed about the Mashable post, hope it gets published!
PS: Just edited the text images into texts itself with no help other than this.
