Automate your referral program

Product updates // January 19, 2022

Happy hump day and welcome back to another round of product updates!

We're thrilled to bring you a few big time updates that'll both streamline your ability to create amazing content, and put your referral program on autopilot.

Referral Program 

Automate by bulk uploading promo codes

While you could manage the fulfillment of the rewards yourself, some of the most successful referral programs utilize a Shopify store and sync with a drop-shipping company to automate the fulfillment and shipping of merch and rewards.

However, utilizing a single promo code (e.g. "use code XXXX to get a free t-shirt") leaves you susceptible to people abusing the code. The solution—single-use promo codes. 

Using one of the many available plug-ins, you can auto-generate hundreds (or thousands) of single-use promo codes. And with our latest update, you can upload them directly into beehiiv so readers who achieve certain milestones automatically receive a single-use promo code to claim their rewards.

You can bulk upload a different list of promo codes for each individual reward in your referral program, so they can be reward and milestone specific. 

In theory, once you have your store configured to accept the promo codes, and your beehiiv referral program is set up—you can have your referral program completely on autopilot without ever needing to manage fulfillment and inventory.

Sample milestone email with referral code

We'll also send you an email notification when your inventory of unused promo codes are running low, so you can import additional codes. 

PS follow the steps in this support article to get everything set up in no time.

PPS this is just the latest of many upgrades to the referral program. Expect much more to come here. 

Text Editor

Word Counter

You can now track the length of your posts directly in the text editor. You can find this located in the top right corner of your editor.

Paste image URL directly into editor

We've consistently added additional functionality making it easier and easier to import content from elsewhere. This included copy and pasting images into the editor, dragging image files into the editor, and now...pasting image URLs directly into the editor.

Unschedule and reschedule posts

We've introduced the ability to unschedule an already scheduled post and reschedule it for another time, giving you more control and certainty around your campaign sends.

Improved time zone confirmation

To ensure absolute confidence in the delivery of your newsletter, we've added more clarity about the time zone of the send time, defaulting to that of your browser and computer. 

Other improvements

  • You can now strikethrough text easily directly in the editor

  • We've introduced justified text alignment, which you can see an example of below

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.

All you need to do is select the block of text, click on the right submenu, and choose Justified as the alignment option.
