Forms: The Complete Guide–Part 2 Forms are one of the most important parts of any site or app—they are the most common way for our users to give us the information that we need to help them do what they want to do. But in many instances, we design forms statically, often as wireframes. But so often, what makes or breaks a form is what it’s like to interact with it.

5 startups that used crowdfunding to grab headlines | Articles | Home Many entrepreneurs raising money through crowdsourcing sites such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo think in terms of launching the campaign, generating lots of press and then hoping the press gets people to sign up and fund the campaign. There’s nothing wrong with this strategy, but smart startups take it a step further and leverage their fundraising success as a PR event in and of itself. Not only can this impact the crowdfunding campaign itself, but it also sets the stage for securing sales outside of crowdfunding as well as follow-on investment funding. Here’s how five startups took advantage of their crowdfunding success to generate PR buzz with major media outlets: 1. LIV Swiss Watches is an independent boutique style watch brand. “We pre-sold 500 watches during our campaign,” says Esti Chazanow, LIV's co-founder and brand manager.
