It may be summer, but we’re still hard at work bringing you new and improved features. We’ve been implementing changes both big and small across the platform; here are some of the exciting new things you can do with Boast.
Get More Reviews on Google, Yelp, and More with Review Links
Last month we introduced review links for form thank you messages, and they’re now available in form auto-responder emails and sequence messages, too!
Review links can be used to hook up your social media or other review websites, such as Google, Facebook, or Yelp, to the testimonial collection process. After submitting a Boast review, you can easily and automatically ask your customers for a review on those other websites.
Display Your Feedback, Even if You Don’t Have a Website
No website? No problem! Boast now offers hosted landing pages which you can use to display your feedback. Simply create a widget and choose “Direct Link / Hosted Page URL”.
This is a great option for businesses and individuals who don’t have a website, or if you are using Boast for non-testimonial purposes, such as collecting videos from family and friends for a birthday or retirement.
Easily Duplicate Existing Forms
With a click of a button, you can now create an exact duplicate of a form you already have in your Boast account. This highly requested feature will allow you to create many similar forms, changing only what you need to. Essentially, this allows you to create your own form templates! If you often find yourself rebuilding very similar forms, this feature is for you.
Even More Small Updates and Improvements
Besides the larger features listed above, we’ve also launched a number of small fixes and improvements, including but not limited to:
- Sequence messages can now be sent with a delay of up to 45 days.
- Additional information displayed on the main Contact page
- When sharing a single response, videos will now autoplay
- Photo field improvements
- Form thank you page updates
What Are We Working on Next?
Automatically add pre-rolls, outro videos, background music, and more to your collected videos.
Trim, reorder, and delete clips from your submitted videos.
In addition to your existing email sequences, you’ll be able to send messages to customers by text, from a local phone number, to collect more video and feedback from mobile.
We’re bringing back our new customer checklist, which provides video guidance to walk you through setting up Boast and adding it to your website.
Our knowledge base is constantly growing with new “how to” videos and articles to help you make the most of your Boast subscription.
Plus a slew of tiny improvements throughout the app to improve your entire Boast experience.
