Last week, Rosenfeld Media and Six Revisions ran a comment-and-win contest called Giveaway: Free User Experience Books from Rosenfeld Media. With over 300 participants, it was evident that the books were in great demand!
* Update: Commenting is now closed and winners will be selected shortly. *
The success of a site depends on the quality of experience they provide to their users. As the competition for the user’s attention increases, you, as a designer, have a short window of opportunity to get them hooked before they hit the “back” button and search for another alternative. This is where the field of User Experience (UX) evolved from, out of a necessity to keep your existing audience, and to encourage new users to come and stay a while.
Last week Six Revisions hosted a contest giving away a total of $1,000 dollars in ThemeForest credit which you can use on the ThemeForest marketplace to purchase website templates such as premium WordPress, Drupal, Joomla! templates, and more.
This contest is now closed.
ThemeForest, part of Envato, was kind enough to give away a total of $1,000 in cash credit on ThemeForest which you can use to buy web templates, WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, and other popular CMS themes. Ten winners will be randomly selected to win $100.00 each of ThemeForest credit.
Last week, I posted an article announcing the FreshBooks 1 year free subscription giveaway. After receiving a great amount of wonderful responses to the contest topics, the winner was randomly selected and contacted.
For those of you unfamiliar with FreshBooks, it is an online invoicing service designed for freelancers and small businesses to help them save time, get paid faster, and look professional with their clients. I’m a big fan of FreshBooks and use their wonderful service for time-tracking and invoicing.
