New designs. New ways to keep fans engaged.
So far we had a one-size-fits-all design. We realized that doesn’t work. We now have new designs that will change itself to suit your content.
There are 3 categories that are launched, more coming soon.
Rich Content – More than 6 collections
If you have more than 6 collections, we have a theme that will give the customers a quick look at what is available in one glance. It looks pretty. It is funtional.
It’s great. You can now break them into categories like “Recommended”, “Popular”, and “Noteworthy”. It helps build trust with people.
This new interface has been designed keeping in mind helping people make a decision quickly. More options there are more they are tempted to see all the options before buying. So this design makes it easier for them to make the comparisons and choose what they should buy.
Adding thumbnails to collections
To make the best of this change, you can add a thumbnail to the collections. Previously, you had to upload a banner image alone. Now you have an option to also upload a thumbnail that looks better on smaller screens.
To add a collection thumbnail :
- Tap on settings next to the collection who’s thumbnail you want to set
2. Select edit banner
3. Upload a thumbnail (below upload banner). The dimensions should be 300×400 px (vertical)
Value Content – between 2 to 4 collections
The above design looks bland and empty if you don’t have a rich variety of content collections. We respect the fact that you have fewer collections – probably meaning you have a narrower focus. We now have a design that’ll look great for you too.
Looks great and is functional. Users see the most important information in one glance.
- Banner – to give a sense of what to expect. Something to excite them
- Cost – how much will it cost them
- Reviews & ratings – how do others like it, how many others have bought it
Focused content – Just one collection
If you have just one collection, you’d have noticed that you must make an additional click to open the collection. That’s kind of redundant. We’ve gotten rid of it! When your users open the app, they can buy right away! No frills – just your content.
Your content will be available for purchase with no additional click.
A new Splash Screen
You can welcome your customers using a customized message. It’s a great way to build trust as soon as someone comes to the app.
To customize this, tap on the top left three lines (hamburger menu) and select “App Name and Logo”. There you’ll see an option to type in the welcome message and upload a signature.
A new onboarding
Your users will be given a short guide as soon as they open the app for the first time.
Is it even an app that doesn’t have stories? It’s a great way to keep people engaged every single day. Who doesn’t love a quick update of photos? 🙂 It’s awesome.
To add stories, tap on the left menu -> Engagement -> Stories
Very closely associated with the above, is a photo feed. You can now upload photos to create a feed of photos. People would love to see more photos you share. Share before – after photos, share upcoming trailers, share backstage photos – anything that helps people fall in love with the app.
To add photos, open a collection -> add content -> Select Photo -> Upload a photo and select “Before Buying”
It will automatically get converted to a photo feed.
Installation has been pretty confusing because this is a new kind of an app. We’ve made it super simple now. One tap install on Android. Simple installation on iOS.
Payments should be simple and intuitive. That’s what we’ve now done. Just a simple checkout flow. No frills, again. 🙂
We have a lot of new features coming up in the next few releases. We’ll keep you posted.
