About a year ago, my friend Michael McReynolds, Kris Sheets and I talked about creating a content approval site for clients. We could get work, show concepts to the client, get their feedback - and finally client approval on the work. I mentioned this to the company I work for (NovoLogic.com), and they thought it was a great idea too - especially since we could put it to use there as well. Ben Johnson created a working interface, but this project took a backseat to paying clients. In the last couple months, we ran across 2 websites that offer these services - and they have been working on this for over 2 years now...
+ Website Review (Launch Demo)
+ Image Review (Launch Demo)
+ Document Review (Launch Demo)
+ Video Review (Launch Demo)
ReviewBasics.com looks to do what we need, but the interface is not as easy to use - as one would expect - in working with clients. I mean to say - you dont want to have to educate your clients on how to use your website do ya? Ideally, it should be so easy that you dont have to explain it.
-It works and will start using it now!
-interface is not intuitive
-no drag n drop upload of files
-no support for ai, swf
-no thumbnails of videos or other assets?
Conceptshare.com seems to be more fluid in its approach, but it has its limitations as well. I recommend trying both - and seeing which works best for your needs. Now if someone could only mash them both together...UPDATE: Is FeedbackFX part of ReviewBasics? or is this video just made by the the same peeps that did their video?
