Post Kudos is now Boast!
We’ve been working on some major updates lately, and with the launch of our new features, we are taking on a new name!
The reason for this is simple. As we were outlining our growth path, we realized that “Post Kudos” was very specific and limiting some of the future areas where we want to take the company. Our new name, Boast, will allow us to become an evolving platform to help you better manage, share and distribute customer stories for your businesses.
What will you find in the latest release of Boast?
Mobile Kiosk Mode
The iPad application now has a specific kiosk mode that gives you the ability to collect testimonials directly from customers at your office or at an event. Boast kiosk mode is great for everything from healthcare, banks and other professional services to events and conferences. Just mount the iPad in a convenient place at your business or in a booth and encourage customers to submit their praise.
The Affiliate Program is Now Available!
We get regular inquiries about starting an affiliate program, and now it’s here! The affiliate program gives you an easy way to recommend other businesses to Boast. You can send them a special link from inside your account that they can use to sign up. Once they sign up and start paying you will start making some coin.
Here is the sample scenario: You send a friend the link, they sign up for a $99/mo Boast plan and then you start making $15/mo off of that plan. We’ll send payments out quarterly to those who have earned over $500.
Updated Administrative Dashboard
We also updated all of our administrative tools and dashboard. Now the system will be easier for you to navigate and use. Next time you log into your account, you’ll see a simplified navigation and more user-friendly screens so you can find what you are looking for easier and faster.
Additional New Features
We’ve also been hard at work improving Boast based on feedback from customers like you, including:
- Publish approved videos directly to your Youtube channel
- Add contact information from testimonial submissions to your MailChimp lists
- Ability to customize your testimonial collection forms with unique titles and descriptions.
- Improved capabilities for adding video through your mobile browser
- A new feature for developers: Ability to get a JSON data feed of your testimonials.
What’s coming down the road?
- Features to share selected and approved content on social networks
- Features to collect and display testimonials within your Facebook pages
Along with these features, we’ve used this as an opportunity to update all of our hosting servers to improve overall performance and reliability. If you have any questions, please contact us.
