Hi Mel, thank you so much for your message.

First off, I checked your site and I love it, do you do freelance work? If so, we should talk. I just launched a freelance collective and we're looking for front-end devs to work with us. You can find out more at https://thea-collective.com and let me know if that sounds interesting.

As for my site, I did everything on Webflow. I wouldn't be able to tell you much about how animations are slowing performance yet. I need to dig in the data which I haven't yet.

Good point about the font size though! Webflow allows you to create multiple views so I should be able to fix that.

Let me know how the accessibility checkup works for you. I would recommend starting with this https://a11ygator.chialab.io/ (especially for a dev, you'd understand the results much quicker than I did!).

T.

The ethical UX angel on my shoulder tells me to be upfront about it. Unless you're also collecting email addresses for something else. But I can't imagine that'd be your style.

Thank youu! Yeah, it's really worth it. Let me know how it goes for you.

You're so kind, thanks Hannah

I like when you join those calls cuz then there's no room for bullshit

I'm more into having a simple networking call (aka drinks) rather than leading a topic, but happy to hear suggestions?

So glad this is happening! Some questions / broader topics:

-As a designer, what do I need to know about using headers in footer sections?
-Is there a checklist of things to consider before publishing a site SEO wise (that Yoast wouldn't provide already)
-Apart from alt text, what do I need to know about using images on a site - SEO wise?

I'm really keen to learn about best practices rather than have specific questions answered. Really looking forward to this!

Thanks a lot!

Oh, I like your style! There's so much to do with that! I can teach you how to grow your followers, definitely. I'm doing it for myself at the moment. Started 3 weeks ago, I gained 122% (looks very specific I know, I had to do the maths cuz I had no idea ^^). Do you want to book a session with me? http://tamarasredojevic.com/#contact

In the meantime, here's an article where you can find a few tips about social media: https://medium.com/@GimmeACamera/creating-promotional-content-for-social-media-95d1cd906c1

Hiya!

It depends on your photo style. What are you shooting exactly? Do you have links for us to see your photo work?

If it's artistic photo -> Insta + link in bio to buy prints is common practice. That could be an Etsy or your website. I personnally used to have Squaredspace. Everything was integrated, it was great.

If it's stock -> iStock, Shutterstock, Adobe are good. There's even a platform now that I'm helping building to sync all these submissions from one dashboard instead of having to do it on each separate account.

Let me know if you want to talk about this more xx

You're very welcome. xx

Hi Melissa, great work!

I noticed a paragraph that doesn't make sense, you probably rewrote it at some point and forgot to remove one bit:

"We aggregate and summarize the most important updates so that you can so you can focus on spending time with your team where it counts."

I think the very first paragraph could be just a little bit clearer too:

"Stay in sync without meetings
Cadence replaces your unproductive status meetings with quick updates connected to your favorite work tools."

Suggested copy:

"Stay tuned with your team
Cadence replaces your unproductive meetings with quick status updates to let your team know what you're up to."

I think the information about the fact it syncs with people's tools is great but secondary. First, tell them what they gain, then say why it's great (cuz they don't even have to worry about integration).

About the last paragraph:
"We're currently in early access mode
Ready to help your teams be happier and more productive? Leave your email below and we'll let you know how to get started."

The title is misleading compared to what follows. Does that mean people can try a beta version? Do they have some kind of offer?

I hope that helps, but if anything is unclear, fee free to DM me.

Nah.. this isn't Facebook!

Instant reaction, I wanted to like this post. Can we not like stuff?
