BatchBook, Get Refreshes

It seems like every time I hunker down to do a fairly substantail redesign, I end up doing a refresh for both BatchBook and The last time was just last October.


First was the refresh of BatchBook. We had a few goals in mind that I wrote about on the BatchBlue Blog post. Among them:

And the results. Here’s the contacts page:

And here’s what an individual contact page looks like:

If you haven’t noticed how cool that social media integration is, I encourage you to look hard. Or, sign up even. :)

And while I’m on the redesign kick, why stop with the app? Off to the marketing site I went. Here I worked with some great design concepts by the lovely and talented Mikey Hougland to do a home page/footer refresh. Again, a goals list:

And there we have it. I’m curious to hear what you think!

    One thing I noticed about the homepage is that it no longer features the custom BatchBooks for realtors, designers, etc. In fact, I can’t find them at all anymore!

    Hi Adam: That area was actually left out TEMPORARILY. We’re collecting some more user info and will turn that into one more area of the home page. Stay tuned for that. But in the meantime, I’ll take a look at getting those back in there somewhere. It’s good stuff! :)

    When I saw the screencast hit the front page I cheered. They should be easily found because they are so helpful.

    I’ve seen you talk about how you’ve made the screencasts on the blog, but not the screencast themselves. Would be cool if they hit the feed so your users have another way of getting the content!

    Hi Chel: The screencasts actually have their own feed, but I’ll do a better job of posting screencasts to the blog feed when they’re updated. I’ll be doing a whole new set soon, since we’ve got a new design and a bunch of new features to show off! :)

    I just didn’t see them in the regular feed so assumed they weren’t there. Off to subscribe. Thanks Adam!
