What’s your think about UI?

Ui, User interface, is a hot keyword around me recently, not for the meaning of the phrase, but for the money it can have if someone got the skill to do this work in recent days, about RMB 7000 – 15000/month salary in many advertisements of employment.

Ui example

I want to earn more as a UI designer to meet my needs to pay the bank of house debt, but the training program for the UI is somewhat expensive to me, its about 8000/ 12000 in RMB. So the situation is, the work tending to be good, but I can’t afford the cost of training, not only about the money, but also the time spend on that (most training lesson only available in full time lessons), what I wanna do?

Some good online free training lessons can be found, but its fragmented and not systemic and hard to distinguish if it’s suitable for me, and it gives no clear clue for the whole UI ability. But…, I have no choice now, only can try to see and practice more about the free lessons, hope they will help me.


Oh, the update of the last time blog will become maybe next time.

About aliibbaa some personal feeling

Hi, it’s my first article here, I don’t have much time to update some useful information, but today i just want to make something I know down here.

And its aliibbaa.

1,Gold supplier.

I have chance to experiencing optimizing the shops on aliibbaa, off course, this account is paid which have been called “Gold supplier” in aliibbaa, and with a gold petal like coin in the upright corner of the shop and a digital number inside like”1,2,3 or more”, which means the time of this shop have existed in aliibbaa, at least 1 year(but a new opened shop e.g. opened only 1 day, also have 1 year pedal). so the gold supplier doesn’t have anything related about the quality or services of the suppliers on aliibbaa, its nothing but justify this shop have pay annual fee (about RMB 29,800/year about US$4656) to aliibbaa, that’s all.

2,the main strategy of the aliibbaa

aliibbaa is a commercial group which need more trust from stock holders, so the data (not mention about real or not)must be increasing. So aliibbaa create new way of show in its website for the suppliers, it’s combined with the following things: P4P+Top position+trust position+show case+normal position,

and inside the 3 one fronted, P4p,Top postion and trust position will contribute the 85% viewers or clicks for the suppliers, P4P means Pay for Performance(but nearly everyone told this as Pay for Position), it’s just like adwords but simpler and direct;Top position,which combines 2 parts,all means the 1st position in the search quest, one type top position is less hot keywords which can be quick bought from the control panel of the supplier for RMB 299 – 400/month, and other hottest keywords needs contact the sales man from aliibbaa, price range from every RMB 40,000 – 80,000/year/keyword(about US$6153-$12307/year). That’s much higher than the average cost of shopper on ebay and amazon.

But that’s now the most important, the important is, no exact or real feed backs like amazon, so anyone can not know which supplier is better, only can be judged by the position of the supplier’s product or see the data showed by aliibbaa to every supplier which can not be very objective.

3. and more, I will update future.
