Share Your Way Around with Mixsee
MCD is excited to announce the public beta launch of Mixsee.com—a free web tool for creating guided tours for places and events.
A Mixsee is a shareable mix of places that you can customize with photos, videos, audio and text to help guide someone around using their mobile phone. You can make Mixsees for things like: a visitor’s guide for office guests, a wedding weekend companion, a local tour for out-of-towners, a list of your favorite places to share on social media, history tours for history buffs, a big conference or festival guide, a personal travel journal, or a how-to guide like How to Become a Hipster Dude in One Afternoon—you know, without really trying of course.
Mixsee is easy to use and works on any web-enabled device. This means your audience can follow along wherever they are—smartphone, tablet and computer too—no apps required.
Mixsee was developed as an MCD lab production. It came out of a mobile contest we had, where we gathered the entire company into teams, brainstormed different concepts, and decided we would build the winning idea. “It was a bumpy ride at first, trying to develop a product within an agency environment, outside of the client work that we needed to do. But in turn, it’s helped change the agency. After a few false starts and some hard earned lessons along the way, Mixsee went alpha in the fall and we’ve been non-stop ever since,” said John Caruso, Partner and Creative Director.
The team has been continually testing, improving, and enhancing the product and have a new release of the publishing tool lined up for the next month.
