  1. Composer "Hide from the client" and "Approval from team members"

We understand that it takes a lot of effort to come up with the perfect post. The key is in effort and consistency. While you’re working on coming up with the most amazing marketing campaign, in the meanwhile, you can hide the post from the client,

Once you have the final draft ready for review, you can unhide it for client approval.

On the flip side, your team might comprise of editors, publishers, and managers. You can select certain team members as approvers and assign them posts for review/ approval.

  1. Planner - approve with comment

Many clients enjoy the option of approving or rejecting social media posts. To cater to this need, we have created a new role of “Approver”. You can add single or multiple approvers in your workspace and assign them social accounts. The approver can only see the Planner module of that particular workspace.

Let’s suppose you have some completed posts and want to send them for the client or internal approval. You can schedule a post to be reviewed. This will generate a request at the other end for post-approval. The approver can either approve or reject the post with or without comments. They can also attach files, mention other approvers, and add internal notes or comments to the post.

  1. Planner - Reschedule missed review post

If you missed reviewing any content prior to the time/date of its publishing, your content will not be posted; however, it will go in the "Missed Review" list. All such content will show up in the separate list, you can easily filter it by status as “Missed Review.” Now, you can easily post your content again!

All you need to do is to edit the post and set a new publishing time and date.

  1. Planner - Design change.

Introducing you to brand new design in the Planner module. We have made the following changes:

  • Image size changed to fit each post title instead of old small images
  • Changed buttons for Approve, Reject, Edit/Duplicate and Delete
  • Pop up when approving posts allowing a user to approve with comment and/or reschedule missed review posts

  1. New Placement for Discovery Search and Topic

Considering the feedback from our users, we have changed the "Tab bar" in the Discovery section with the buttons for Search and Topic. They have been moved into the top bar where users can easily toggle between the two by tapping the header. They can also swipe left or right to switch the views.

  1. Limited options for a user with "Approver" status

Approvers logged into the app can now just view the Planner section and be able to Approve or Reject the post and will not be able to edit the post.

  1. Code Improvements and Performance Improvements

We have improved the entire code base to give users a better overall experience while using the app. In order to keep the apps updated, code has been refactored to cater to the architectural design changes and the requirements enforced by Apple and Google.

Furthermore, libraries that were causing the app to lag have been removed. Instead, they have been replaced with custom-made solutions to improve the load on the app.

I hope you like these features, as much as we enjoyed developing them for you! :)

View Influencer Details from Discovery

Our primary goal is to make this platform more accessible and convenient for you. That’s why we have introduced a feature improvement in the Discovery section.

Users can now view additional articles from an author in the discovery section and also can view the influencer details from discovery.

When you click on the author’s name in the Discovery section, you can see all the relevant details including the shared articles. 34.png

As can be seen here, a comprehensive, detailed view of influencers is available on the preview. You can view the influencer’s shared articles and overview of their engagement online.

Export into CSV for Twitter influencers section

Twitter is a perfect social media platform to connect with Influencer. Nowhere else news travels as fast as it does on Twitter. Politicians, Celebrities, and News anchors use this medium to quickly dissipate trending news.

If you can connect with these influencers, the chances of boosting your brand's image skyrocket. ContentStudio presents you with an easy strategy to connect with twitter Influencer and increase the reach of your brand.

Go to ContentStudio and search your industry for Twitter Influencers. Export the returned list in the form of a CSV. Now you can tag all these influencers in your posts. This will not only increase the reach and engagement of your posts but if the content is good you might reshare from the influencers themselves.

This helps increase your brand's visibility on Twitter.

Estimated Cost Per Post in Instagram Influencer section

Influencer outreach and marketing has really caught on and will be a great player in the 2020 digital marketing scene. ContentStudio helps you identify influencers in your industry and connect with them to promote your brand.

But the question is how to approach an influencer and how to benefit from their reach?

One thing you can do is ask them for a shoutout. They can put in a good word for your brand in their Instagram posts. This way to get access to millions of eyes just from one post.

The catch here is that Influencer almost always asks you to pay a fee. Here ContentStudio comes in to help you. In our Influencer section, you can see the estimated Cost Per Post for your desired Instagram Influencer.

This helps you get a rough idea about how much a shoutout will set you back in terms of money. You can also estimate which Influencer falls in your marketing budget so you can then connect with them. Or whether a person is asking you too much money for his services.

Content Categories in the Composer/ Planner filters are now sorted alphabetically

Both the Composer and Planner module now have your Content Categories sorted in alphabetical order to help you find them.
