By | Google+ , June 20th, 2011 in News | 1 comment

There are so many awesome things we just released (especially if you thing “so many” means 4). You’re busy, and maybe even bored, so I’ll keep the intro super short and dive right in:

  • Constant Contact Email Integration! – Connect your leads form to Constant Contact to become a better email marketer. Can I get a “Hell Yeah!”?
  • Add social data to your leads – Our RapLeaf integration lets you automatically add Age, Sex and Location to your lead date – #HighFive
  • Dear Dashboard, you’re hotter… and faster!
  • Integration error handling/reporting
  • Unbounce gets a new office – and we LOVE it

Constant Contact Email Integration!

Email marketing can be tough to do right, so when we were choosing our latest integration partner Constant Contact, what we really liked about them is that they have a massive collection of free actionable advice to help you do a better job of communicating with your customers, including:

  • 1 on 1 coaching
  • Live in person seminars
  • Webinars
  • And a ton of best practice guides, podcasts and tutorials

Add Social Data to Your Leads

Now if you go to the Account->Integration Details page of your account you’ll see the option to enable RapLeaf Social Data. Once you do this, for every lead that you capture on your Unbounce forms, you’ll also get the Age, Sex & Location of your leads appended to your lead data!

This let’s you send more personalized emails back to your leads. Pretty cool right?

Dear Dashboard, You’re Hotter… and Faster!

Note: You won’t have blurry spot on your dashboard – that’s just me being tricky and hiding URLs.

Got tons of pages?

We’ve been talking with a lot of you lately about the speed of the dashboard, and we’re going to be rolling out some new features to make it faster and easier to organize your pages.

For the first phase of improvements we’ve:

  • Added filtering for published and unpublished pages
  • Added more advanced caching to increase page loads times
  • Made it look nicer! (who doesn’t love a good facelift?) – Botox anyone?

Login to your account and check it out – we’ve love to hear your feedback

Next up will be page grouping and organization (which we know has been top of mind for many of you).

Integration Error Handling/Reporting

If you’ve used our integrations with Constant Contact, MailChimp or Webhooks – you’ll now see some nice error messages showing up on your dashboard (or the page overview screen) – we hope that this will make your life a whole bunch easier when setting up your integrations.

And another cool thing is that if you see any errors show up, you can fix the problem and use our “Retry” feature to re-connect with the other system. For anyone out there using our webhooks and integrations – this is pretty rad.

Unbounce Gets a New Office

It’s still a little bare right now – but it’s got a brick wall – so it’s cool :)

We all got fat – okay not really, we just drank too much beer during the Canucks run at the Stanley Cup :)

We’re also hiring more people now, so we can release more awesome features more quickly.

To battle the bulge, we’ve moved into our new bigger, badder office! It’s a super exciting milestone for us as we continue to grow – and we owe all of our loyal customers a big thank you for enabling us to do this.

As always – let us know what you think about the new features.

Cheers,

– Oli Gardner
