Join us for Office Hours!
Have you had a chance to attend one of our Office Hours? If you haven't, what is holding you back from joining? If you have stopped by, we would love to hear your feedback on the best parts and even, what we can do to continue improving on. We love the chance to get to have one on one face time with you and share our love of Simplero and help you figure out the best ways to make your account serve you well! If you are a new Simplero customers, Office Hours is an online meet up with us! We get to answer questions about your account, using Simplero in general or specifics. These office hours are free and they're designed to be heavy on the Q&A - we want to get you the answers you need to get into action with your Simplero account. Don't forget to hit "reply" and let us know what you are loving, what you are interested in learning or any other suggestions you might have for this time.
We will be holding English/ US Office Hours this coming Thursday, October 12th at 4pm PST/ 7pm EST, as well as the following Mondays at 10am PST / 1pm EST / 7pm CEST. You can sign up for the date you want to attend right here! For those of you who understand Danish (feel free to ask your questions in Norwegian or Swedish!) you can sign up here for Office Hours on Thursday, October 12th at 11am Danish time!
Did you know you could do this?
Did you know you can allow your media content from your library to be consumed as a Podcast in Membership Sites? You can! You can also disable podcasts if you want to, while still allowing users to download their media content. Read all about it here!
Another guide we want to highlight for you is Sign up forms! After all, we want to make sure you have the ability to grow your interest list and get your products in to more people's hands! Signup forms, also known as Opt-in forms, are an important way to get people on you mailing list. This is because you want to start building a relationship with them and nurture these relationship until they become a customer. With membership sites you have two options for adding your Simplero embedded signup forms to your site and a third option for adding full page signup forms. Read the full guide here!
New Features in Simplero
Hot on the heels of the last couple of weeks of membership site madness, this weeks sees a couple of more general improvements to Simplero. First off, we've added the option for you to disable the ability for people to download the media content for a product across membership sites and the product itself, rather than only being able to control this on a per-site basis. This makes it possible for you to create multiple tiers of access to the same product where one provides access to consume content online, and another access to also download that same content. You find the setting under the Content section of a product in the administrative interface:
This is especially great if you want to offer a teaser product with limited access, and a full product with complete access and the ability to download the content, without having to maintain two separate sites.
Secondly, we've updated our Zapier integration, as we know a lot of you rely heavily on it for automating your business. A lot of you have requested the ability to more effectively use tags in your zaps, so you can now use the addition or removal of a tag in Simplero as a trigger in Zapier to perform an action on the back of it. Conversely, you can also now add or remove tags in Zapier in response to another action. This makes tags a super powerful instrument for controlling the flow of a lead or customer through your sales funnel, both internally in Simplero using triggers, but now also externally through Zapier. Awesome, right? In addition to that, we've made some enhancement that pre-provides data to Zapier, which in practise means that setting up a trigger no longer requires waiting for it to be triggered, which make it a lot quicker to do. These updates are already available to all Zapier integrations with Simplero, so make sure you go and check them out!
Make it a great week!
