It’s a jungle out there my friends! So how in the world will your content be appealing enough for your audience to be worth their time and read past the first few lines and hopefully share with their circles?
Think of your website as your digital store front. Just as you would diligently clean, organize and display your best work to attract clients, your website should be equally tidy and well-kept. According to a recent study by the 2012 Digital Influence Index, 89 percent of customers search the web before making a purchasing decision. In this ever-changing digital age, it’s increasingly important to make a lasting online impression in a short period of time. When it comes to visual web appeal, it’s more than just pretty fonts and colors, it’s about the right mix of aesthetics and functionality that speaks to your target audience.
We’re excited about this new release. For months we have had users asking us to improve our Text tool. It was at time buggy, and didn’t render text clean enough where everyone can appreciate. But today things have changed and let me dig in and tell you why and how:
You see our text tool was based on Canvas text in HTML5 (in laymen terms the default vector text when using HTML5 canvas) and although this had it’s advantages over time it became apparent that the cons far outweighed the pros.
Every so often we like to feature Presenter users who create real life projects to raise awareness about a cause. Today we are featuring a student William Yang, a 10th grade student from California, U.S. who came across Presenter and is using it as a great visual platform for a public service announcement about Bullying and it’s effects and consequences.
Take a peak below and make sure you check out the 4 minute interactive presentation. William has done a wonderful job of timing his animation with visuals, music and introducing effects to visually connect with his audience.
Lately we have seen a lot of conversations and tweets about SlideRocket users voicing their frustration and complaints about SlideRocket’s upcoming shutdown and looking for a good alternative.
If you have been a SlideRocket user, we invite you to join EWC Presenter and its growing community of users and adopters.
Design faster in Presenter
Over the course of the last few months thousands more users have joined and created series of Presentations, Animations, Banner Ads, website teasers, Infographics and more right in their browser using Presenter. Some of you are students and educators and some are non-profits, businesses and bloggers.
Do you have a website on the Wix site builder and you’re wondering how you can make your website stand out from the millions of other sites out there?
Adding interactive banners, presentations or animations will help you to achieve that and the free App EWC Presenter will allow you to do that right within your Wix website.
Aside from creating a clean and professional layout, you should also strongly consider adding engaging and attractive content that will capture your user’s attention. After all studies continue to prove that combining text with visual cues and animation can enhance user’s ability to absorb information which is ultimately why they visit your site.

Back in July we released our Vector Assets starting with our Vintage class of icons. What we’re really excited about is the release of a new Category of Icons that are so crisp and colorful that you won’t be able to resist using at least some of them on your next Presenter project.
Every single asset has been hand crafted by professional designers and illustrators. They’re so tasty looking, you just wanna Lick’em! Hence we decided to name this new category of assets: Eye Candy.
EWC Presenter has been receiving rave reviews from numerous blogs and sources and our hard work is starting to turn heads. For example just recently Noupe a leading Design Blog took Presenter for a test drive and below is an excerpt:
“Say farewell to Powerpoint, Flash or whatever tool you are currently using to create presentation slides, banner ads, infographics or product demos. EWC Presenter by HindSite Interactive (Parent company of Easy WebContent) is a powerful, web-based HTML5 editor that does not want any less than change the way you create professional content.
