Valentine treats… with a CubeSocial orange tweak!

2013-02-14 09.37.51Happy Valentine’s to you, and Happy Birthday to us! Are you feeling the love today? We are… and we’re not afraid to show it!

Two years ago today we moved into our office, with our first hire, and explained what we wanted to build and be. What an amazing two years it’s been since then, and it’s all thanks to you! Please consider this a virtual Valentine card from all the team, packed full of affection and appreciation Smile  

2013-02-14 10.24.07You’ve done so much to help shape what we do, and how we’ve grown, and while we can’t share the specifics just yet, it’s thanks to you that we’re about to enter an exciting new evolution. How? Our conversations, your feedback, our working together… have highlighted something that’s missing for professionals. We’re busy building something for you to demonstrate and earn money from your expertise, to grow your business. A Valentine treat in the making. All will be revealed soon!

Apologies to those who think this blog post too gushing, or who are feeling a bit bah-hambug this Valentine’s Day. Please be our Valentine, join us in celebrating our birthday, and feel the love!

Changes Coming to CubeSocial this Week

CubeSocial has grown organically since we launched, and of late we’d begun to notice that some of the features weren’t as easy to discover as they once were. With that in mind we set about redesigning CubeSocial’s homepage to make it more useful as the hub of all your social media activity.

We’ve added a new navigation panel on the left-hand side of the home page. In it you’ll find all the things that were previously tabs at the top of the homepage, everything that’s currently in the Engage section of the site, plus a couple of new things too:

CubeSocial Homepage layout

Our testing shows that this new layout will simplify many of the CubeSocial usage scenarios. The changes will be rolling out later in the week and we’d love to hear what you think. Leave a comment below or email us at support [at] cubesocial.com.

And the Winners Are…

imageWhen we launched our Beta program back in April, we promised there would be prizes for those that provided the best feedback (or indeed managed to break our infant version of CubeSocial!).

Well, we haven’t forgotten about that, and so (in no particular order) the winners are:

  • Jon Bloor for taking the time to write a review of CubeSocial within minutes of the Beta sign coming down
  • Jason Comer for being the first really get stuck into the Beta, and call personally with comments and feedback
  • Barbara Payne for providing good feedback in person and online
  • Jon Harman for being the one person that managed to break CubeSocial, giving good feedback via Skype, and understanding what we’re about
  • Craig Killick for writing a blog straight after coming into the office for a-not-very-slick demo, and generally being a great supporter

Each winner will receive 1,500 social media profile credits (worth £50) that can be used to discover the social media profiles of your contacts in CubeSocial.

To all our early testers a sincere thank you for helping make CubeSocial the product it is today.

And if you haven’t had the chance to experience CubeSocial yet, just head over to the sign-up page, register for a free account, then sit back and enjoy!

Our new home page is live. What do you think?

After much toil (and a little cursing) our updated home page is live, and we’d love to know what you think.

Connectegrity Home Page

We’ve talked to many professional services firms over the course of the year, and one message has come through loud and clear: For the vast majority of organisations, acquisition of new business is the number one priority. So, taking that feedback on board, we’ve set about building a product to help with that. 

We think the new home page paints a clearer vision of where we are headed as a company… whilst still being a little cryptic about the product details. We’ll reveal more over the coming weeks and months. Meanwhile, we are busy building our team, and a list of prospective Beta users.

If you’d like to join us on our journey you can subscribe to updates by email, subscribe to updates in your RSS Reader, or go to the home page and sign up for the product Beta.

Oh, and if you have access to an iPad, perhaps you could let us know how the home page looks on that device. We don’t have one at Connectegrity Towers just yet (much to Linda’s disdain), but we would like to fix any major layout bugs if there are any.

Leave any comments, good, or bad below.
