  • Posted to LandingPagr is a Free, Editing tool to write your Landing Page Copy On, Jun 05, 2019

    I see where you are going for. A can imagine a couple of use cases where you'd use a draft version of your wordpress website or drupal or whatever, but I'll give feedback assuming there is a need.

    First how I'd like it to 'magically' work:

    • I'll enter a link to my landingspage, or a landingpage that looks enough like what I want to recreate.

    • Then your tool parses the HTML, and turns that whole page into a your edit-able fields.

    • Then there is some way to export these texts in a way that the rest of the team can work with it. Let's say for now a simple .txt file where someone can quickly do copy & paste.

    • Each item gets a label (you can change by hand). It get's a default label that makes sense. Like heroblocktop, heroblocksub_text, etc. If it comes from imported HTML, you might be able to use the class names to make sane defaults.

    Some potential other features:

    • A history of changes to the text.

    • A feedback tool.

    I think you are competing with: Google Docs, plain word files, wordpress/other CMS. The potential unique thing is that you can show texts in context, and with a pure focus on the copywriter. So you best would be to get into context with people who do that for a living.

    For the more technical inclined, they would just download the HTML and make changes straight into the HTML to see the changes (or use 'inspect' in browser). So those are not your audience.

    I'm not doing much with the project at the moment, but I spent quite some time thinking about a UX tool, where one of the features would be something like you're trying to do; show and edit texts in context for the early stages.

    It's fun project, try to see how far you can take it!

    Broad question, but yes. Once you've made something you tend to be more forgiving to the products and services around you. While you still see the design flaws, you have to respect that at least these things made all the way from someones mind it into reality.

    One of the things I'm working on is an idea growing app. Started back in 2013, and more recently I was able to partner with the company I work for to try to make it a commercial viable app, with cloud features. You can read about it here:
