2021 has been a turbulent year. With more and more businesses relying on online sales over in-store purchases, involve.me had to evolve to accommodate their needs. New integrations, personalization and sales features were added to make your work easier. Let’s have a look at what they were.
Above and before anything else, in 2021 we made sure involve.me was reliable, fast and ready to support your growing businesses. We made many infrastructure changes to support our increasing traffic and feature stack.
We've added an easy way for you to see all contacts across all your involve.me projects in one place. Now you can navigate to Contacts in your menu bar, search by email address, add & remove tags individually and in bulk, filter by tags and delete contacts. You can see when the contact was first added, when they last visited your projects, how many submissions they have and in how many involve.me projects they've participated. Furthermore you can see the opt-in status of every contact under Subscribed. You can expect updates to this section with extended functionality in the near future.
We'd be keen on hearing how we can make Contacts better & more useful to you. Tell us here.
Integrations added in 2021
In 2021, involve.me got integrated with more CRM and email tools. Sending data from involve.me into your other tools takes only a few clicks with these integrations.
Google Sheets & Excel integrations
All data you collect in involve.me can be automatically sent into Google Sheets or Microsoft Excel Online. These integrations come with free reporting templates you can grab & edit. Check them out here.
To manage all these integrations better, we also added integration status messages. They tell you whether your integration is set up correctly and working.
New payment methods added in 2021
Anything you make in involve.me can collect one time or recurring payments. These payments used to be managed by Stripe and PayPal, but in 2021, we’ve added Mollie, Braintree and Square as well.
These 5 payment integrations enable you to collect payments from most credit cards (Visa, Maestro, American Express to name a few), but also PayPal, Google Pay and Apple Pay.
In 2021 we added SEPA, iDEAL and EPS payments to the list of payment methods as well.
To help you keep track of the payments you collect, we’ve added automated notifications sent to your inbox every time you get a purchase from involve.me. A true set-it-and-forget-it sales funnel.
Personalization features added in 2021
involve.me personalization features are here to help you keep content on brand and responsive to what each of your customers says. Our aim for you to be able to create content that looks like the rest of your website and is fun for your customers to interact with.
In 2021 we added the following improvements:
Favicon. See that little icon in your browser tab? It helps you identify which tab belongs to which website. You can personalize that icon for your involve.me projects.
Generic domains. Instead of “app.involve.me”, your URLs can now start with one of 10 generic sounding domains. This makes your URLs more white label so they fit into the rest of your website better.
Answer Randomization. This feature helps you remove answer order bias by showing your answers in a random order for each person who views them. Answer randomization helps you get more accurate response data.
Answer Columns. If you have a long list of answers or simply want to ask a yes/no question, you can organize your answers into 1,2,3, or 4 columns.
Answer min and max limit. If multiple answers are selectable, you can set a minimum or maximum number that can or should be selected.
New templates added in 2021
With new features come new templates. involve.me templates are the best way to see the new features in action. You can grab any of these templates and just add your logo to it.
