Make a Splash With Pro!

You spoke, we listened and last month we launched Pro, the first phase of our premium services. We are really excited about the amount of publishers who have taken the plunge, like the team at Zein Marketing, and upgraded papers to Pro. Thank you community!

We received hundreds of product feature requests from you over the past months and regardless of industry, or the size of the company, the message was clear: publishers wanted affordable, no hassle features that would amplify content curation efforts and support content marketing efforts.

So we took three features that unanimously surfaced across all conversations
  • control over advertising
  • extended visual branding
  • ability to review before publishing
and launched our pay-per-paper service for $9.00 USD monthly. We're having a blast discovering new Pro papers and thought we would share a few with you!

So who's upgrading to Pro? 

Tea lovers, social workers, actressessmall businesses and non-profits such as Water Aid and anyone who is interested in taking their paper to the next level in terms of control over branding and advertising.

Internet marketing expert Rich Brooks recently wrote a post and created a video on How (and Why) to Upgrade to Pro. Sometimes our publishers say it best, so check out what Rich has to say!

Looking for a few more examples? Then here are another handful of publishers, and papers, that caught our eye this week. They are all unique and visually compelling statements for upgrading. Pro is just the first step in premium features and you can count on more great functionality to roll out in the near future.

In the coming weeks we will interview "Publishers-gone-Pro" on the Community Blog to learn how the new functionality is helping them to reach their goals. Stay tuned!

As always, we count on your feedback and comments to keep us moving in the right direction.  Keep them coming. We love hearing from you.
