Today we are launching two huge updates to help publishers earn more revenue with Boosts:
New Monetize Dashboard
We completely revamped the Boosts Dashboard for those of you monetizing 📈.
At the top of the dashboard, you’ll see the most important metrics and data about your revenue, including the subscribers you are driving to other publications.
Then below those metrics, we call attention to current publishers you are working with who have enabled Email Boosts, and allow you to apply with one click.
As a reminder: Email Boosts allow you to promote other publishers in your newsletter with a simple one-click signup button; making them the simplest way to drive a large volume of revenue in a single email send. For example, if a publisher is paying you $3.00 per subscriber, you include an Email Boost in your newsletter that generates 1,000 clicks, you could earn up to $3,000.
As you scroll down, you’ll find a line-by-line breakdown of the revenue you’ve generated by helping other publishers grow.
You’ll see the current that rate each publisher is paying you per subscriber, the subscribers who are in your pipeline, and the revenue you’ve earned from each.
Under the Email Boost tab, you’ll see any current Email Boosts you have active with a simple reminder to include them in an upcoming newsletter of yours.
In the table underneath, you’ll see the performance of every single Email Boost you’ve run previously. Email Boosts are the simplest way to drive a large volume of revenue in a single email send.
Finally, under the Insights tab you can track and visualize the revenue and growth you’ve generated over your selected time frames.
Boosts popup widget
Today we’re launching a brand new popup widget that is considerably more sleek and optimized for conversion.
The new widget will appear for new subscribers after they submit their email, and prior to continuing on the post-subscribe journey.
Early tests have shown a considerable increase in conversion rate, which should lead to more revenue generated for you when you are boosting other publishers 📈💰️🤑.
New to Boosts?
Note: Boosts are only available to users on Scale or Enterprise plans. You can learn more and/or upgrade here.
One of the most common questions we receive is “Can I customize the double opt-in confirmation emails?”
As of today, the answer is yes.
Just go to Settings → Publication → Double Opt-In and click View and Update Confirmation Email.
Double opt-in is an optional setting that requires new subscribers to confirm their email before they can begin receiving emails. Until they confirm their email (i.e. click the button in the confirmation email) they will be marked as Pending.
Note: All subscribers who join via Boosts, Recommendations, or the Referral Program automatically go through the double opt-in process to reduce spam and abuse.
We won’t stop shipping Automation features until beehiiv is home to the most robust suite of automation tools in the industry.
Today we are launching two powerful new Automation features:
As a reminder: beehiiv Surveys allow you to collect information about your subscribers without needing to use and pay for SurveyMonkey, Typeform, etc.
You can even build custom subscriber flows to display surveys as soon as someone signs up or unsubscribes from your newsletter.
Below is a simple survey we ask new readers to submit when they sign up to this very newsletter you’re reading right now.
As of today, you can now trigger automations when a reader submits a survey response.
Survey Submission Trigger
In our example, we can enter readers into an automation as soon as they submit an onboarding survey for this newsletter.
And with Survey submission conditions… you can now add logic to check whether or not a reader has submitted a specific survey previously.
Below is an example of a True/False Branch that is checking to see if the reader both submitted the onboarding survey and answered that they do not have a newsletter on beehiiv.
Automation Step Conditions
With this new logic, I can send an automated and targeted email to readers who don’t yet use beehiiv 🙂.
Note: Automations are only available to users on Scale or Enterprise plans. You can learn more and/or upgrade here.
