What are mockups and how to use them in the online gig economy?
Visuals are becoming increasingly important online and offline including for content marketing, for personal branding and for online marketing in general including for book marketing and ebook marketing
Whether you are a founder of a startup, a CEO of a scale-up, director of an SME or a family business, images, sound and images are becoming increasingly important. Visual marketing online and offline is an important part of making money in the online gig economy and saving money in the online gig economy to survive the online shakeout.
What are mockups?
In internet marketing, online marketing and especially visual marketing, you can distinguish different types of mockups:
- Static mockups with a photo or image of for instance a physical or digital product or service as in the photo above showing a mockup of the new short ebook & checklists of ‘The New Normal Economy. Hybrid working and working at home for managers and employees’.
- Live mockups where you see a video in an image.
- Videos in which you see either static images like the e-cover of ‘Digital Strategy Mapping‘ in this very short video or another video in the video.
Mockups are examples of graphic designs that play a critical role in making money and saving money online in the online gig economy, including in my case. As part of my personal right-skillingplan, I learned with video tutorials and other on-demand online courses how to design and produce different types for my own blogs and sites. In that way I saved a lot of out-of-pocket expenses.
And at the request of some of my customers, I started to produce them as one of my new online income streams after the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic as online side-gig.
