Authored By: Andy Needham

Released On: 6/6/2016

Most apps follow the same interface design principles—principles defined in the iOS, Android, and Windows Phone specifications. Prototyping your interface with tools like Illustrator and After Effects can ensure your app meets platform guidelines and help you resolve usability issues before going through a lengthy development cycle.

In this course, Andy Needham shows how to create an app interface from scratch using Adobe Illustrator, and then take the finished design into After Effects for animation. This is a start-to-finish project, going from concept sketches to the final product (an animated GIF). The prototype will showcase the navigation and interactive aspects of the app interface and can be used for marketing or gathering client and user feedback.

Released On: 6/6/2016

There is more to keeping an eye on your competitors than just knowing their products and features. What is their messaging like? What value are they adding? What are their unique differentiators? In this course, Jeff Bloomfield helps you analyze your sales competition. It starts with understanding your buyer's point of view, and then being honest when making comparisons.

Jeff shows how tools like LinkedIn and Google Alerts can help you stay up to date on your competition's personnel and product updates, and how you can take advantage of the webinars, presentations, and other resources presented by your competition. Last, while competitor information is critical, it's ultimately more important for you to remember the value that your company brings. Jeff closes by explaining how you can best sell your company's products and services: by not getting too distracted by the competition.
