This month, Team PunchTab
has been hard at work improving the end-user experience and adding capabilities for our fantastic publishers. The first new feature is the Earning Map
, which adds context, direction and comprehensiveness to the point-earning experience. The second is the Publisher Dashboard
, which adds customizability for website owners.
The Earning Map is an exciting feature that marks every earning opportunity (Facebook likes and comments) at their actual location on the page’s real estate. With these tiny red ribbon markers, users can scan an entire page for earning opps and publishers can guide users strategically through a page’s content. Over the coming days, we’ll be adding contextual notifications to this feature, as well as new earning opps.
Please do leave us feedback (right here
) about the Earning Map if you have any. We’d love to hear your thoughts about its aesthetics, its placement, and how it may help or hinder your community-building!
We’ve also rolled out a new Publisher Dashboard
for all those admins eager to manage their own contests and take a peak at who’s been visiting, liking and chatting on their site. Now publishers can create their own rewards and set the duration of that specific contest. They can view the entire leaderboard, which includes all participants who have ever opted into their PunchTab
program. And they can adjust basic account settings, such as Tab placement, website name, and passwords.
As several of our users have noted, this dashboard “puts a real face” to the user base and, for everyday bloggers, the service is really a first of its kind that allows them to view exactly who has visited, commented and liked their blog’s content, and when.
We’ll be rolling more features out on a weekly basis–at the very least. So be sure to check back on this blog to hear the latest, and more importantly, leave us comments and feedback!
