The fastest process of creating an app is to:1) create a wireframe for your shopping app. A wireframe is a drawing of how you want your shopping app to look in terms of images, text, navigation etc. It also shows how you want users to navigate through different pages of your app. This is what we are producing in this 3 step tutorial. 2) The next step for you is to take this wireframe to a web designer and programmer. Having your wireframe gives them a very clear understanding of the end product that you want. This clarity makes their job easier by saving them time. For you time saved on programming and design saves you money. It is a win-win situation. You can find web designers for logo and web layout on platforms such as 99designs.com and programmers on platforms such as freelancer.com, toptal.com or gigster.com. 3) Enjoy your new shopping app!

To follow along the tutorial, create your own NinjaMock account and start designing! We offer both FREE and PRO accounts depending on your needs. It is fast an easy. If you just want to use this shopping app project as your template and add additional pages to make it fit your business.

Share Button

Avoid headache using a simple wireframe tool to make your coding more effective. Get feedback from clients and users, before starting to code, as it is much faster and easier to iterate a wireframe, than having to re-write your entire code.

Some say that the lazy programmer is the best programmer, why spend unnecessary time on coding, if you could be more effective? Whether you are collaborating with a team or it is just you and the client, using a simple wireframe tool is the key to using your time most effectively and getting satisfied clients.

NinjaMock makes you easily create, collaborate with colleagues in real time, share with clients and run user tests, before coding. Don’t worry, you’ll have full control over your project, assigning different roles to your team, such as “admin”, “designer” and “reviewer”.

Having a wireframe that has been user tested and approved by the client works as a blueprint for your code. It gives you an idea about where divs, headers, navs, images etc. are going to be. Follow this and you will be much more effective with your time, avoiding the headache of rewriting code, due to dissatisfied clients. To sum up, we have listed 6 reasons why wireframing is a must.

Dreamers who Do – Imagination & Action, the Magic Ingredients in Entrepreneurship

Share Button

Are you an aspiring entrepreneur? Entrepreneurs are often described as dreamers who do. In this article we highlight the magic ingredients of entrepreneurship as imagination and action. Later, we explain how you can use simple wireframe software, to visualize ideas and transform dreaming into action.

Entrepreneurs are dreamers who do

Entrepreneurs have often been described as “dreamers who do” and this is a very fitting description looking at the current available knowledge within the field of entrepreneurship. Despite different approaches to entrepreneurial opportunities as being either “recognized”, “discovered” or “created” ranging from incremental to radical innovation, all views of entrepreneurial opportunities require the following magic ingredients”:

“ the necessity to make decisions and take action often only based on human imagination and aspirations, that may or may not in time lead to new products, firms and markets” ( Saras D. et al. 2003)

Now let’s just take a moment to let this resonate. The magic ingredient to entrepreneurial activity is the ability to imagine what could be, to visualize it and believe in it so much, that your are willing to make decisions and act according to an imagined future outcome, well-knowing that your effort may or may not bare fruit. This on one hand seems a bit risky, and the more radical the idea, the greater risk. However, at the same time, what an encouraging and exciting fact this is, that human imagination, the ability to see what could be and make decisions and act according to it, is the magic ingredient of entrepreneurship. This highlights the importance of using visualization tools to make the imagined tangible and to be able to share your vision with future team members, strategic partners, future customers and investors.

The power of imagination – Use visualization tools to bridge imagination and action

Visualization is the most  powerful method to translate imagined ideas and manifest them in real life. You can do this by using a wireframe software for, app and website ideas. This allow you to share your vision and take the first step to realizing the idea.

How to improve your ideation process – using wireframe software

Great Ideas, seldom appear in a clear holistic way and often require a number of different choices  along the process. thinking is not enough, you will reach better outcomes by experimenting and testing different ideas. Visualizing and communicating pros and cons with your team or stakeholders and reviewing ideas from different perspectives. Dive into the process and work your way through the different options provided in the contributing team or stakeholders, you can select the best possible ideas, user flows and designs.

Facilitate communication through wireframing

Visualizing facilitates communication and create a common framework for team collaboration. Additionally, getting more ideas into play, involving more stakeholders only heightens the quality of the ideation process, allowing you to create apps and website concepts, that is difficult to create on your own.

Use wireframe software to tricker action

Start by designing a wireframe and continually test your idea with stakeholders and customers. The wireframe is a blueprint for what needs to be designed and programmed. Wireframing is the fastest method for realizing ideas, as it allows you to make the imagined tangible, test, co-create and verify ideas, before any economic investment.

Use wireframe software to reduce risk

 

Entrepreneurs are risk averse

The last sentence of the statement saying; “that may or may not in time lead to new products, firms and markets( Saras D. et al 2003)” suggest that there is certain risk involved. You act upon a perceived opportunity and there is no guarantee of success. However, entrepreneurs are not “risk takers” as many mistakenly believe. They are rather risk averse, acknowledging risk as part of the game, but trying to limit it in any way possible. They work with “affordable loss” – how much am I willing to potentially lose if this does not work out?

Test ideas before investing

Using wireframe software allows you to quickly visualize and test ideas. Check if there is a market, before you invest big money in realizing the project. A good idea is only good if there enough people that will spend money on it

As an entrepreneur time is your most valuable asset. This makes wireframes a desirable method, for testing ideas and markets, as it is a cheap and risk free.

Get green light from customers

If your wireframe gets positive response from customers, you can use it to seek funding, as you can present the wireframe to investors and include positive customer reviews. Investors will have  tangible product and live customer recommendations,as a basis for their investment decision. So if you want to start a business, start with wireframing.
