Finally, after months of planning and developing, we are very close to launch the next site update (hopefully next week!). This time we have focused a lot on simplicity and usability. We learned from the research we did before making the upcoming changes that customers aren’t really as tech-savvy as we believed. They want a site that is easy. Really easy. And that is exactly what we are going to give them. There will be less links, easier navigation and actually buying an image requires fewer clicks.
We will also add a set of new features, including a new subscription model where customers can buy a yearly subscription. This will be the best offer available for customers that use images sporadically. This is a segment, believe it or not, that hasn’t been served properly by microstock agencies. The size of subscription downloads will also be increased to large. We have also added the long-awaited views-counter.
Our new CTO, Bjorn, has been quite busy the last few weeks organizing the update, and we are quite happy with the progress we are seeing. A lot of new ideas have also been added to our list of upcoming features.
But the good news doesn’t stop there. We have also worked hard on raising more funds to do a more extensive marketing campaign. This has finally paid off, and during the next few months you will see a steady increase in marketing.
We will post a link to out test-server here within the next few days where you can get a sneak preview of the update.
