Then we both started building website and amazingly it was really beautiful and very simple, the best thing about the website was attracting appearance, colour combination, consistency, our logo, home page, etc..
Here i'm not saying that we had created the perfect site -
-=- we did many mistakes like we didn't made questionnaire page due to time constaraints
-=- Judges were stick to order billing form which was very lengthy (but here i would like to mention one thing is that if you go through any site like eBay, alibaba.com etc who deals with B-B/B-C/C-C transaction you will find that they will make you fill up 5-6 pages of form which is very lengthy as compared to our 1 page billing form )
another mistake that i would like to mention, from which i had learned a lots of things in my MBA life thatt no matter how good is your product if you can't present it properly then you can't sell it, After all Jo dikhta hai woh Bikta hai (you buy only those things which you can see)
Almost all the contestants had made there website like...(no comments) except one which stood 1st whom i thought will stand second after us, i don't like to talk about the other contestants coz i did'nt liked any of them, they didn’t had any consistent theme, almost all of them didn’t made questionnaire except one for which judges screwed us, they forgot vital information which is very essential while making any transaction (i know b'coz i did some homework about it last night), and many more things....
Now the question is whether we won or not, if you ask this question to judges they will say NO......
If you asked this question with us then we'll say we'd made best website from others and we'd won coz we'd learned many things from this contest
There is no mistakes, only learning’s
Never take anything for granted
Never underestimate yourself and others too
How to work in constraints and lack of resources
Belive in yourself even results don't favor you
Simple is the best
Later all the winners and contestants were saying that you'd made best website, even they din't had any idea what judges saw in their site if you ask me - they did many major mistakes if your ask with any professional website designer you'll come to know. Even you can tell who won just compare these two sites http://www.frontech.com/ and http://www.dell.com/ or http://www.apple.com/
In these last lines i would like to mention that winning and loosing was not the issue which bothered only thing that i didn’t like was i hurt the expectations of my batch mates who thinks that I’m the best web designer i don't know why... but i would like to say them that if you always win that you won't care about your mistakes but if you loose then you will take care of your mistakes and try to improve your self which is the essence of our life.
Update-=-13.11.05: last night i tried to interrogate what went wrong but I didn’t found any solid reasons but later I found it, as I use to say there are three things which brings you down to the earth that is greed, lust and anger and yesterday I was driven by greed and anger which pulls me down from goodness mode to passion mode and later to the ignorance mode.
